    I have been working at French Lick Resort part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They give great benefits for full-time employees. They offer delicious holiday meals. You get a discount at the entire resort and off of concerts held there. They allow you to work banquets and make more money as well.

    Cons

    It can often be a 7 days a week job. Only certain positions have set work hours. It is a lot of standing as is the case with most hospitality jobs. The cafeteria is very subpar. Poor work life balance because you have to work all of the time, particularly holidays and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep promoting a positive environment. Housekeeping at West Baden is intense and the managers are often rude but they get the job done.

    I have been working at French Lick Resort full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health benefits and opportunity for advancement. The human resources department is extremely helpful and prompt in their actions if anything were to occur.

    Cons

    It's a corporate owned business that thrives off of paperwork and over working management. The pay rates could be better.

    I have been working at French Lick Resort full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay for my job was one of the best in the area and available to people even without degrees.

    Cons

    Working nights and weekends is a must to make the best money. From my job, there was no incentive to move up the chain, in fact I would've had to make less but work more. Management was cold and not flexible. The casino business there seems to be fading.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees better for their experience and skills and offer better raises when advancing.

    I worked at French Lick Resort part-time

    Pros

    20% Employee discount. A Beautiful resort. Room discounts. Helpful staff. They are great at events.

    Cons

    Spa management doesn't care about employees, only about profit. The spa management needs improved..all the way from the managers to the director.

    Advice to Management

    Show employees you care about them. Don't allow any group to get a pay cut due to "finances" right after they get a pay raise from the resort because it did so well financially. This happened in the spa to everyone who works iff commission. They had 15% cut. Then the spa remodeled an area into more treatment rooms.

    I worked at French Lick Resort part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The independence working in this cafe was great. It's slower during the winter than the summer. It's a beautiful and historic place to work at.

    Cons

    You never get a pay raise. It's basically minimum wage. You always have to talk fancy instead of being laid back even though this position isn't that prestigious.

    Advice to Management

    Give more incentives for pay raises.

    Pros

    Medical, Dental, decent benefits, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Very dishonest company. They constantly scream broke stating that they need to cut hours to employees and funding to the surrounding area. Meanwhile, they will constantly add amenities and expensive unneeded purchases such as a light show in west baden, a factory-style building, 125+ new slot machines, and a gazebo at the stables. They will also take away benefits to employees while screaming broke as they make un needed expensive purchases. They over-pay employees in the tipping positions but extremely underpay employees in any sort of technical position requiring skills, making them one of the lowest paying employers in the industry. Middle management is allowed to use fear and intimidation against employees making a normal job incredibly stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the fear and intimidation tactics, pay better, upper management work on honesty.
