    I worked at Margaritaville Hospitality part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, management was friendly, complimentary food/cafeteria. Resort itself was beautiful and the clientele is clean and well-mannered for the most part.

    Cons

    A lot of turnover at the top, but being a brand new resort I suppose that was to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Expansion is good, but only in moderation. Baby steps. The Hollywood resort has a ton of potential still, just the location is still kind of off the path (for oceanfront property).

    Pros

    The staff all hard working people

    Cons

    Being in between the past which was great and present leadership owners. This was supposed to be the Jimmy Buffet tribute but he sold out man

    Advice to Management

    There is really nothing to say to a bunch of egotistical non JB lovers or sell outs. They sit in there glass office and talk about people all day. They lied about the future and quite proudly collect their fat checks and could care less what we say. Sad for JB true fans they are being sold a lie

    Pros

    Great team to work on, easy flow office environment. Management was direct and clear to understand. Overall a great experience for a full time college student working on the side.

    Cons

    The management had a entitlement personality to them. Majority of the team members did not enjoy the management and lead to non effective leadership and work flow.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff a little nicer with equal level of respect and the turn over rate would not be so high, nor will the management staff have to be downsized because of declining sales, which is what happened in the end.
