    I worked at Forever Resorts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Signal Mountain Lodge truly cares about the people working for them. I was just a housekeeper, but even the general manager knew my name. I got to meet the owner Rex one time, and he was very kind to all the workers. They had great activities for college kids to do during their off time.

    Cons

    Not that much money was made, but I had a great time exploring Grand Teton National Park.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring great employees and great managers.

    Pros

    The company is moving forward and it's wonderful to be a part of the growth and watch opportunities arise for our staff. I have watched employees start at an entry level position and through training and mentoring move into management positions. It's also been awesome to watch employees develop their hospitality and food and beverage skills. There are many opportunities to work in unique places, meet interesting people and create awesome memories.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Communication is a continual area for improvement in any organization and it has proven to be beneficial when the company takes an interest and takes action in this area.

    I worked at Forever Resorts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An employee receives wonderful discounts and perks at many locations. The store was clean and attractive and the work schedules were put out on time.

    Cons

    The store is closed much of the winter months, making this a poor choice if you need full time employment.

    Pros

    Great location, beautiful landscape. Great manager, and assistant manager.

    Cons

    Worst food you can find on the planet. Everyday all day frozen food that is fried. Salad is partially rotten. Not even the cooks can tell you what is in the food.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of drinking going on at the dorms, management needs to find ways to deal with this better.

    I have been working at Forever Resorts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Locations are awesome what is not to like about the Grand Canyon North Rim. Meeting some interesting people from around the world

    Cons

    This list is long and prosperous: Management seems to be comprised of the " Good Ole' Boy Network". Food and Beverage Management is especially bad at what they do. I have worked at multiple properties and whomever has set up their program is no where current on todays work standards nor are they very good at communication. At both the North Rim and at Bryce they have what is called a survivors party at the end of the season..... which is a crying shame.... why would you set your standards of making it through the season .... as a VICTIM.

    Advice to Management

    Hospitality is a progressive business and culture. All the changes you make at middle management each year produce the same results.... INSANIITY... true change comes from above from the attitude, culture, actions and all else. Maybe a change in upper management is the real need of this company.

    I have been working at Forever Resorts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -You live within Grand Teton National Park. It is a fun playground with many outdoor opportunities
    -The HR staff is fantastic and the lodge itself has many opportunities to do fun activities with co-workers
    -There is a bonus at the end of the season if you honor your commitment period
    -The managers of the lodge are very approachable and friendly
    -The community is excellent
    -The employee housing is solid
    -The general store specifically is a simple job
    -The managers are very purposeful in giving you two days off consecutively and work to give you the days off you want/need

    Cons

    -There aren't many people who work at the General Store ... the hours are 7:00am-10:30pm. It can be a bit exhausting if you work a lot of "clopen" shifts ... close one night and open the next morning. Also the flexibility is limited because of limited workers.
    -The pay isn't fantastic ... but the reason you would work here is less because of money and more because of location.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the hard work and keep on encouraging your employees to get out into the mountains and play! It is life-giving and necessary to find ways to rest, and that seems to be a pretty good way for most people!

    I worked at Forever Resorts full-time

    Pros

    Great area. Lots of hiking. The people are nice. You get to meet and work along side people from all over the world.

    Cons

    Management is one sided and hard hearted. No employee loyalty, no matter how long you've worked there. Horrible work space, management brings personal life to work.

    Advice to Management

    Learn new management. Power hunger and fear is not the proper management style at all for any place. Leave home at home, and work at work. Lift employee's not tear down.
