    Management is great. There are a variety of places to work within the Villages and they provide great compensation.

    Don't work here unless you want to work with seniors. There isn't much of a young crowd here.

    I worked at The Villages

    Pros

    Decent pto, access to charter school

    Cons

    Medical insurance very expensive. They only care about their bottom line not you or your family. They talk a big game in the beginning, but it's all a lie. DRAMA and they let it go on and on

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees and their families. Stop letting certain people continue causing non stop drama. Do your job.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at The Villages for less than a year

    Pros

    It is a gated community and they usually hire residents within the community, which are 50 years or older. Most people are friendly and fun to be around.

    Cons

    They have a tendency to hire their own friends and family, even if it means laying off an employee with good work ethics and dependability. Employees who are dedicated and hard working and will take on any task they are asked to do.

    Advice to Management

    Be more considerate of your dedicated and dependable employees who have worked for you and proven themselves for a lengthy time period.
