    I worked at The Carolina Inn full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good benefits, great staff, engaged management

    Cons

    they took away car-a-lotto :-(, new points system is total bunk.

    Advice to Management

    bring back the car-a-lotto! The one with the full wheel (double payday, jackpot, etc.)

    I worked at The Carolina Inn full-time

    Pros

    easy, independence, most of staff is great to work with

    Cons

    unorganized, dirty, unprofessional, no room for growth, pay is not even remotely competitive, too many egos

    Advice to Management

    you will never have loyal employees if you keep doing what you're doing

    I worked at The Carolina Inn part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The good thing about this business was that every shift was different, which helped the time go by very quickly. Additionally, around exam time, they were understanding of exam schedules if you gave them enough notice. The most enjoyable aspect were my coworkers.

    Cons

    The hours were brutal. Most weekends you work weddings that end at 12-1am, then spend 2 hours cleaning, then have to do a night checklist, and don't end up leaving until 3am. It was very difficult to keep this job while managing my classwork at school.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more understanding to your coworkers! You guy sent out an emailing telling everyone what their availability was, not asking for it!

    I worked at The Carolina Inn part-time

    Pros

    Great hospitality company, good food when available and discounts at other resort locations

    Cons

    Inconsistent wages make it tough to predict income. Lower level management can be out of touch with their front end staff

    Advice to Management

    Make a bigger effort to hire students - they're who the guests want to see when they come in and interact with, are more in touch with the campus

    Pros

    good co-workers, it appeared to be easy to switch to other positions in the hotel if management liked you

    Cons

    long shifts, some weeks you may be scheduled for lots of hours and some weeks you may be scheduled for hardly any so the income is very variable. best as a part-time job for supplemental income.

    Pros

    The Inn looks out for your best interests. If you want to change jobs within the hotel (which I did) go right ahead...it is perfect for students trying to find the right fit.

    Cons

    Hard to "move up" in the hospitality industry, and increase salary.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging!
