    A great caring and family like work culture

    Pros

    Well, it's Nantucket first of all. The properties owned by NIR are the best on the island. And, they sponsor a lot of fundraising campaigns. A well run organization with a heart.

    Cons

    Housing. Not enough affordable options. Glass door wants me to write 20 words, but that's all I have. Good night.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Nantucket Island Resorts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You should be put a gun to your head or way too out of your mind to make a decision to work in that place if you are at least an average, a normal and a healthy person, over elementary school, speak at least english and a loooot of patience for less than zombie level brain manager peoples!

    Cons

    Island life, No ferry sometimes, no place to go, expensive, lots of angry and racist caribbeans, uneducated company managers which are hired just because nobody wants to work there, drug addict, stinky and dirty staff, departments that completely filled with loser employee which you won't be able to deal with, uncivil behaviors everywhere, unprofessional organisation and lying directors..

    Advice to Management

    respect more to staff, pay what they deserve and hire not jamaicans!

    Pros

    beautiful place to work as a young person, good location

    Cons

    I held a summer job so I was aware of what I was getting into


  10. "Good seasonal opportunity"

    Pros

    This is one of the best seasonal employment opportunities in Massachusetts. It is a great place for college students to work and have a lots of fun at the same time. The best reason to work for NIR is that you will have a chance to explore the endless beaches and enjoy the ocean with friends from around the world.

    Cons

    It is really hard to find place to live in the summer. The company provides housing, but it is limited. They work on that issue at the moment. Keep in mind that Nantucket is very expensive place to live. Don't expect NIR to pay premium salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in talented people, do not only fill the job positions.
