    I have been working at The Greenbrier full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tips and guests that were previously there. Now it's the new super 8 of hotels as before we set the standard for all resorts.

    Cons

    Management and co workers. The love of money is the root of all evil. Managers were ready to praise only themselves

    Advice to Management

    Listen to experience

    I worked at The Greenbrier full-time

    Pros

    - The staff are great and genuinely care about each other's well-being
    - The hotel values hard work and it's easy to implement new processes or ideas

    Cons

    - I knew very few people with a good work/life balance, at any time of the year
     - The work load for any one person or department is almost unreasonable.
     - Working for a union property comes with a unique set of situations
     - The budget is SUPER tight so the expectation to deliver exceptional results is often limited by not having basic supplies available

    I have been working at The Greenbrier full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment, though still echoing the days of the Old Boy's club. The company cares about its employees. Generous bonuses when the company is able. Lots of women employed.

    Cons

    Low pay, and hard to progress unless upper management. Admin Assistance make twice what I make, and have an attitude when asked to do any work outside of their norm.

    Advice to Management

    Adjust pay.

    I love working at The Greenbrier

    Cons

    Is a beautiful small town; if you don't like small towns the transition will be challenging

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work
