Productive and fun workspace with games & prizes to win
Call Center Agent (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – August 10, 2017
A typical day starts with getting signed in on computer and checking emails for updates and alerts of entertainments to promote. I learned to use a softphone and to click between queues for information quickly. Management and workplace culture was relaxed yet still business oriented. The hardest part of the job was learning all the details of the Opryland Resort with updates to relay to the guests and visitors. The most enjoyable part of the job was the jokes and light gags between managers and other staff to keep the atmosphere light, so our smiles will be heard over the phone by guests and others seeking information.
Fun, productive, and energetic workplace that fosters an Employee First culture
Loss Prevention Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Kissimmee, FL – July 27, 2017
A breath taking resort with a dedicated and talented staff that makes working there enjoyable. Safety and Security department is among one of the best in the industry leading the way with premium lodging and convention security. An incredible place to broaden ones horizons.
Free employee gym, affordable food accommodations, communication tools, learning and training opportunities, knowledgeable security staff
Security Management: Work life balance, opportunities for growth within the department, not always consistent when upholding policies
Banquet Server (Former Employee) – Kissimmee, FL – June 28, 2017
Excellent place to work and growht Been with the company 20 years. Love to work there love the people and the culture of the company. Atypical day at work would be waking up around 5:30 am to set up the room where you are going to be working the best part is to work with a different company every 3 to 4 days and knowing from some different companies peoples and cultures.
Some times the employes complain without any reason
Housekeeping Manager (Former Employee) – National Harbor, MD – June 22, 2017
I learned alot by working with different people from all nationalities. There is alot of opportunities for advancement. You must be prepared to put in long hours if you are in management. It is a strong union environment and know your contract is a must.
Typical work day, getting logged in and a little pre shift in, on what's changed, how busy we are and how many waited guest rooms we have. Any engineering issue's if any, then onto the systems clearing out what is not necessary to be in the system. Answer any an all calls.
Gaylord Texan Concierge, WayFinder and Host (Former Employee) – Grapevine, TX – May 24, 2017
The Gaylore Hotel have great place to work, guiding and helping guests to find their destination and help make their experience a pleasant one is a wonderful job. I learned to handle difficult customers, to use a computer system to sell and schedule events around the hotel, and to face a challenge with a smile. Sadly, while I loved the job, I always wanted to be a game developer, and I must acquire job experience from wherever I can, as a graphic designer I would hope to expand my horizons and be able to use this experience towards my goal
Free lunches, team bonding exercises, excellent management
GENERAL CASHIER (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – April 24, 2017
While working at Gaylord, you can & will encounter some people that are genuinely pleasant and will run through a brick wall. Same as any other work place, there are people that you have to be more mindful of, but overall, it is a great place.
Sous Chef Banquets (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – February 20, 2017
This is such a wonderful place to work and a lot of fun. I worked in the banquet kitchen. It was hard work but very rewarding. When we needed help the whole staff from every department sent some one to help with plating a dinner.
Valet (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – February 17, 2017
This was a great job, I got to meet many people, everyone was friendly and got 40 hours a week. I would introduce myself to customers and help them with their luggage and park and retrieve their car. I leaned a lot at this job and studied outside of work just to be better use to people. This job was all about tips so you had a lot of control over how much you wanted to make that day. I leaned how to talk to different people, some wanted to really know what their options were and others just wanted to get into their room as fast as they could. This job was vary fast paced and the energy was vary encouraging to always be at your best.
Cook 1 (Former Employee) – 1501 Gaylord Trail, Grapevine, Texas USA 76051 – January 29, 2017
In this field of Industry is really challenging and there's a lot of learning in every single day that you go to work, do all the things that you're doing everyday, sometimes you get boring because you gonna do the same thing BUT you're not going to stop doing it because cooking is life, especially for me. When I'm in the pressure that's the best time and feeling to work and do what you must do.
You also need to adopt all the culture that you can encounter; to learn what they have and what they don't have, to share what you have in your own culture to make a successful career.
