    Pros

    Excellent discounts on holidays, training okay

    Cons

    Work colleagues are bullies, shame I can't name and shame on here!

    Advice to Management

    Senior management need to ensure the department managers are trained correctly to ensure that their day to day actions aren't that of being nasty little bullies!!! When someone makes a complaint, make sure you see it through; not doing so makes you as bad as them!!!

    I worked at Park Resorts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The training they provide for entertainers is great if you're a newbie.
    The shows at Park Resorts are loads of fun to perform
    If you're put in the right team this is the perfect job

    Cons

    Unfortunately I was not put in the right team. I was very much bullied and insulted by my team which ruined a lot of the experience of working for them.
    The caravans they give you to live in are a lot of the time the oldest ones that are not in saleable condition.

    Advice to Management

    Really work on who is with who when it comes to the teams.
    Choose your complex managers carefully - every park I worked on the complex manager ended up getting fired. This isn't good or fair on the teamstars.

    Pros

    pay was same as somewhere else

    Cons

    dont really care about their staff or appreciate their hard work unless its your manager but anyone at headquarters dont care one bit

    Advice to Management

    maybe meet some of the staff on the front line see what they do top make your job easier meet your budgets we work very hard you sit behind a desk we are ones with sore backs sore feet and sweating buckets

    I worked at Park Resorts as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Modern offices and pay wasnt too bad.

    Cons

    Awful atmosphere, very large open plan office and there was hardly any interaction. I was pretty much left on my on with no support or training. High turnover of staff within finance departments. Some very nasty characters. Unflexible working hours. Not enough parking. Desks are segregated with large dividers its as though they dont want anyone to speak to each other. Lots of whispering and name-calling. Constantly felt tension and that people were on edge.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff and their problems. Dont assume just because someone is manager that they are capable of doing their job. Get staff socialising and iteracting within their working day.

    I have been working at Park Resorts as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly and enthusiastic team, freedom in job role provided.

    Cons

    The company is going through a merge and there is uncertainty which effects morale

    I have been working at Park Resorts part-time

    Pros

    Opportunities for various roles throughout the parks. There is also the opportunity to work your way up and obviously there are various locations throughout the country

    Cons

    Sometimes the main issues can be with being paid incentives on time. If this issue was resolved there is little else to comment about.

    Advice to Management

    Bonus incentives take too long to be paid (added onto wage slip) however they are worthwhile.Enjoyable atmosphere to work in

    I have been working at Park Resorts full-time

    Pros

    I love being Front of House Receptionist as I love meeting people and work well in a team or on my own using my own initiative.

    Cons

    It is a seasonal job but I do find it a bit too demanding especially in the peak season we have just had checking in hundreds of people in most days. I prefer to work in the Hotel Industry

    Advice to Management

    I am very hard working and love meeting people and I am very friendly and get on well with everyone I have ever worked with and for.

    I worked at Park Resorts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    it is a great starter job for young people out of school or college to work in a busy and exciting place. The staff accomadation is a great way to feel connected with other staff and the community is great.

    Cons

    High turn around of staff. Little to no staff appreciation. Long hours with little to no breaks. some management obilivous to the problems within the company.

    Advice to Management

    I understand that hiring young people is cost effective but when you are in the peak summer period at a holiday camp you need experience and reliablity. 18 year old students who have never worked in a bar or restaurant is benifical in quieter months to train but don't replace leaving staff with inexperiance during summer months
