Server (Current Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – April 26, 2016
A nice environment, build clients that come in frequently to travel for business and pleasure. Coworkers and other employees are friendly and team work oriented. Most enjoyable part of my job is meeting others and making a difference in their stay. The hardest part of my job is working late hours each night and not having a day time schedule.

Great staff that become like family. Customers are definitely difficult. I learned a lot because the company was able to offer training on site. It was a beautiful place to work and I loved my managers.

subsidized meals, training and job-share opportunities
very busy during the winter months, conferences and weddings 44 room spa, back to back massages in the winter months slow in the summer, too much drama, poorly managed, favoritism, did learn alot on the job.
Started of hourly. Crazy shifts, worked nights most of the time till I moved up to Network engineer. Always on my toes literally due to the size of the resort. Learned Novell 2.1 and became a novell expert. Multi ethnicity makes this place so vibrant. Co-workers are great, very helpful. I enjoyed my walks thru the golf course almost everyday on my way to golf outlet or golf office to troubleshoot some issues. Overall I enjoyed the resort but absolutely no advancement. just a side note: This was before Huizenga and Hilton took over the property.

Order Taker (Former Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – January 21, 2013
BRRC was a wonderful, interesting, and fast paced environment to be employed by. Everyone had fun at their various positions, while performing their duties with the highest concern for the guests expectations and comfort. All employees strived to make all guests receive a joyful, pleasant, relaxed, curteous and most welcome experience during their stay at the resort. Private dining was one big family, chefs, order takers, servers, supervisors, and management; was like working for a well oiled machine. Everyone's input produced a great work environment and friendly atmosphere to be employed in.
discounted meals, use of facilities during summer spirit days, flexible work scheducles.
sometimes having to deal with cranky, unhappy, abrupt guests, and having to turn their mood into one of enjoyment, and showing that all employees were concerned for the well being and hapiness of all guests.
A day at work involves trying to get your appts. in a very narrow area with 30 other therapist trying to get there appts at the same time. I learned after 5 1/2 yrs to just stay in your room so you don't have to listen to negativity all day long. The management is there for the resort and not for you, be careful not to speak to anyone else there because the walls have ears, also anything you tell management will go into your file and any client issues will be put in it as well but only the negative ones. There is no co worker team work, everyone is there for themselves and they all seem to think that they should have more appts. than you do if they are full time employees so you will have to sit it out without pay. Hardest part of the job is to sit around without making any money and then told to do chores while others make the money. Enjoyable may be the three dollar lunch at times.
In the the hotel business a typical day changes all the time. You meet some amazing people and make solid contacts. It is a 24/7 business and if your not used to working all shifts it might not be for everybody. You make some great friends along the way. Working in a high end resort there is a lot of turnover, so your constantly learning new ideas from new management. The hardest part I would say is the constant change of schedule from working overnight shifts to working morning shifts a couple of days later. This can impact your sleep schedule. I work on a beach resort and I would say the most enjoyable part of work is seeing the sunrise early in the morning. Not many places you the opportunity to see that!
discounted meals, very good medical benefits, great rates for employee reservations.
on your feet all day, short breaks, wearing a heavy wool suit gets hot.
