Pros

Every time you go to work you are getting to deal with new people at new events which helps keep employees energetic.

Cons

It is a very competitive work environment and if you may not get a chance to work at good events which makes it very difficult to perform up to expectations and the top performers.

Advice to Management

While there are some very good managers at the Welk Resorts, it seems as if they need a management training program or something for new managers.

    Pros

    Welk Resorts is a storied company with a rich history. They have a family attitude and many employees have spent a lot of happy years there. Overall a great atmosphere.

    Cons

    Welk really undervalues their number one asset, which are the employees. All positions are very very underpaid for the type of resort company Welk is trying to be. They have lost sight of employee satisfaction and are so focused on the selling of their product they do harm to the running of the resort.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of cute incentive things and fun employee recognitions but the bottom line is that everyone is underpaid and no matter how many fun little activities there are it doesn't change that fact that good talent will be hard to come by and if you get it they will just end up leaving.

    Pros

    - Decent salary for someone still attending college
    - Chance for promotion with hard work
    - Lovely location to walk around
    - You get plenty of overtime pay

    Cons

    - The management doesn't know what they're doing
    - HR doesn't adhere to confidentiality rules, will gladly discuss other people's gripes with you and 'tattle'
    - Your chance at promotion always comes at the cost of someone else's job
    - You can't have any personal life / issues / illnesses / vacations - they will hold it against you
    - Management pretends to listen / take your side, doesn't actually do anything
    - Management will also take the side of the ICs over actual employees, only because they're bringing in some $$$. One department has a high turnover rate because the woman who runs it is such a terror people were having nervous breakdowns on a daily basis, but they don't get rid of her because she makes the company money.
    - Management will speak poorly of you after you leave the company
    - If you're not a salesperson, they don't care about you

    Advice to Management

    This is possibly the worst place I have ever worked in my life. It was not worth the money I made, and the nervous breakdowns that accompanied this job wasn't worth it. Management, your admin and even your front desk people are the backbone of your company. Start treating them better than you are. Your salespeople make you money, but your "peons" are the ones processing all of that FOR you.
