    I worked at Forever Resorts full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    If you are full time, the health benefits are amazing. Coworkers are amazing. Cannot beat the locations. *Environment feels like college. If you actually work hard, on property management doesn't bother you.

    Cons

    *Environment feels like college. The living arrangements can be underwhelming at times. Do NOT apply if you don't have transportation of your own. Corporate management doesn't care about your property unless you're working at North Rim.

    I worked at Forever Resorts part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Can live onsite in rodent infested housing with broken AC

    Cons

    Management consists of four sets of spouses who cover for each other. Ethics violations continue despite multiple reports to HR. Discrimination against women, African Americans, and the restaurant manager reports to work under the influence, which explains why she doesn't notice several of the people she hires also reporting to work under the influence. Employees drive through the resort drunk, drugs are dealt on premises during working hours, and management steals liquor from the bar, then steals tips from employees to compensate. Head manager illegally kills animals within the park. Women are assaulted in the restaurant, but because their husbands are regulars, staff is ordered to call off rangers and reprimanded. Very unethical outfit more concerned with manipulating evidence and avoiding responsibility than correcting the issues, which is why the violations continue today.

    I have been working at Forever Resorts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Location is great. Housing is provided (or bring your own RV/camper). $10 minimum wage with a small raise every season you return. Coworkers are great in general. Hiking and outdoor opportunities. F&B manager is the best. End of season survivor party. Uniforms are not provided by company so no I'll fitting clothing required. Relaxed but fast paced high volume dining room.

    Cons

    Inexperienced seasonal managers, drug and alcohol users, nobody practices Leave No Trace- housing area is a trash pile by August. Senior Management not responding to written employee complaints on seasonal managers. Kitchen is greasy and gross

    I have been working at Forever Resorts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Management and HR is respected and are good at their jobs -Food is quality and included in the housing fee ($63-$91/wk) - Consistent two days off in a row per week -End of contract bonus of an additional $0.50/hr worked -Lots of employee discounts in the area -HR will put on events frequently, there is solid effort put into keeping employees happy (softball team, rides to places) -Absolutely gorgeous location -Housing is reasonably spacious -Management genuinely seems to try to get to know people and make them feel welcome -As far as places in the Tetons, Signal mountain lodge has the best housing, food, and management from what I've heard out here -Side note: I would HIGHLY recommend bringing a car out here.

    Cons

    -Pay is quite low (8.75-9.00 for grunt positions) -Outside of nature/hiking things, there isn't much to do in the area (this leads to alcoholism on property) - Random drug testing of two employees per week (mouth swab)
