    Pros

    Haha I have about 2 months of vacation time that I never get to use. Other than that good luck finding any pro

    Cons

    Never enough staffing. Revolving door of employees. Once people see how terrible the place is managed they run for the hills. Never listen to suggestions. No appreciation for good work or any value you bring to the company what so ever. Pay is a joke. Micromanaged from behind an office door. Management has no idea what goes on inside the company.

    Advice to Management

    Wouldn't listen to any advice given so what's the point..

    I worked at Orange Lake Resorts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Money if you really need it, and the Benefits were ok. Other than that, there really isn't much to praise.

    Cons

    Terrible communication between all departments as well as in between the resort and corporate. Compensation is well below industry standards. Problems were mostly avoided as opposed to solved (still have issues with Housekeeping even after switching to a contractor). General Management deliberately avoided Members and Guests that wanted to speak to them. Corporate only "appreciates" you once a year, unless you're apart of Sales, in which case you get a few appreciation dinners.

    Advice to Management

    Stop chit chatting for the majority of the day, let your departments know what is happening on property/coming to the property (put names on deliveries). Oh, and don't have sex with your employees.
