I didn't like it
Team Member (Former Employee), Pine Mountain, GAFebruary 6, 2014
Cons: a lot
It is a very hard to get a job here because you HAVE to know the management in order to be looked at. Even if you do get hired, it's only seasonal. Recently, a lot of people were laid off or replaced and the new management only accepts applications from people in college that he teaches at.

Typical Job
Line Cook (Former Employee), Pine Mountain, GASeptember 24, 2013
lots of establishments
place is out in the middle of no where. So business will most likely be slow.
Slow means you could be the only one working because all the salary workers are lazy and leave for the day.

Director of Reservations & Guest Services (Current Employee), Pine Mountain, GAOctober 24, 2012
Pros: family friendly and people are great
Cons: insurance costs
I lead the Reservations and Guest Services Team. A typical day is insuring that rate strategies are in place, phones are being answered and guests are being checked in in a timely manner. The most enjoyable part of the job is when your ideas are implemented and it is profitable for the resort.

Reservations Clerk (Former Employee), Pine Mountain, GAOctober 16, 2012
Pros: family environment
Cons: n/a
Everyday was already lined up, it was the same and i knew what i was suppose to do. I learned different programs on the computer, how to talk to different types of people and make people feel comfortable talking to me.
My co-workers were very helpful and friendly and all had the same goals for each day and helped eachother along the way. like family
The – more... hardest part about this job was not being able to give people the days they wanted because of over capacity and no more availability. The most enjoyable part was when i got off of the phone and i knew that my customer was happy and satisfied. – less

Laundry worker/house keeper (Former Employee), Pine Mountain, GAAugust 23, 2012
Pros: i really liked working with some of the people, and the history.
Cons: supervisors are not understanding towards their employees.
I worked there over a year. Working in housekeeping, not being supervised. I made the mistake of getting sick, and could not get in touch with supervisor. Stayed at work, but couldn't do my work very well. Next day was asked to come into Human Resourses office. I was fired on the spot, because they said I was not doing my job. They said I was missing – more... from the area. I was sick in the bathroom. No one came looking for me. I didn't even get a return phone call from the supposed supervisor. Human Resourses didn't want to hear anything I had to say. Took my padge, and dismissed me. – less

fun exciting environment with great staff and even better guests!
Intern (Former Employee), Pine Mountain, GAAugust 2, 2012
Pros: free lunches, fun environment, learned a lot
Cons: being out in the heat
My main job was at the golf course being a beverage cart attendant and waitress in the restaurant. During that typical day I would take inventory of the carts and sell drinks on the golf course to the guests. Inside I would clean up, take orders, and deliver food. When I would work at the beach bar I would help make and serve drinks or help with keeping – more... the bar clean and fully stocked. When I worked at the gift shop I would sell merchandise,and keep the store stocked while over looking the store and keeping it neat and clean. The management was very understanding and very willing to help out. My co-workers were young and we all got along great. They would help out when needed and I would help them the same way. The most enjoyable part of my job was getting to know the guests and members and building relationships. The hardest part was learning from the ground up because the entire staff was new at the same time. – less
