    Pros

    If you want a job they will hire you. Short interview and no reference checks say a lot about the business and how it is run.

    Cons

    The "supervisors" are paid approximately .50 cents more than their lowest paid employees, lose their shift differential, and get a thankless job.

    Advice to Management

    You've been there WAY too long. Time to get another job. The number of employees you go through should be a good indication of your success. And for my Mormon friends that own this business, "A workman is worthy of his hire." Pay your employees better. You're cheap!

    Pros

    Employees get to eat from 4-Hour-Old Leftover Breakfast Buffet

    Cons

    Intimidating language used towards employees. Disrespect and demoralizing behavior shown towards employees. Class system encouraged. Contracts not honored.

    Advice to Management

    This was the most horrible experience I have had with an employer in my 30+ years in the workforce. Keep employing your relatives because you do not recognize the value of any other professional. You need to go on Undercover Boss if you care about any employees that are not relatives of the owner.

    I worked at Ocean Properties full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hotel discounts, employee meals,
    Beautiful properties

    Cons

    An over all lack of professionalism.
    Micro management of finance, zero effort to retain anyone with potential.

    Advice to Management

    Your most valuable asset isn't your real estate, it is your people. Treating your people with respect costs nothing, this company has yet to understand the ROI on common courtesy.

    I worked at Ocean Properties full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only good thing I got about working at Ocean properties was the friends I made when I was there

    Cons

    No communication with upper management our Resort basically worked by itself with the staff that was there and then would get reprimanded and questions why we made certain choices when we had no one to communicate with for managerial decisions no perks for working for this Corporation whatsoever

    Pros

    They have very flexible hours, ranging from 20 to 35 hours a week, your choice, with 4 hour shift minimums up to 8 hours max. I wanted to work only 4 hour shifts and they accommodated me.

    Cons

    Working at a call center is excessively dull and sometimes disheartening. I wish they had more 15 minute breaks as well.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure how much control management has over the nature of the work, but perhaps give more breaks and maybe do things to make the work more palatable
