I enjoyed this position with Gaylord. Working along the beach with the ocean noise in the background. I worked solo and that was a very good for me. Not confined inside a building. Traveling along the beach from property to property to my units!!! My van was my office. I was only in the office in the morning to get my unit sheet, supplies for the housekeepers and in the evening return to the office to turn in my inspection sheets. Making sure to report and inspect the check in units for the day by 3:00 PM. I enjoyed this position and the ability to take care of our guests in a timely & respectful manner.
a good company with benifits
the company that had the gaylord management contract did not uphold the gaylord standards!

Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – December 15, 2012
A typical day at Gaylord was exciting and rewarding. I learned a lot about managing in the fact that there was a lot of planning in advance to be successful and you needed to be adaptable to last minute changes as well.. Management was very positive and willing to give you the tools and training you needed to do your job. I enjoyed my co-workers and appreciated the feedback that I received from them. The hardest part of the job was parking. The most rewarding part of my job at Gaylord was interacting with guest and helping them have a great and memorable experience while they were at the hotel.
the benefits, dry cleaning and training opportunities.
the hotel is so big that it is hard to touch every single guest.
Group Housing Coordinator (Current Employee) – National Harbor, MD – November 4, 2012
I have enjoyed my time at Gaylord and have loved being a housing coordinator. I have met and maintained contact with clients as well as continue to work with repeat groups who have asked me to stay on as their coordinator. my typical day is filled with e mails and audits of room blocks, checking inventory for sales, helping my fellow coordinators, rooms control and the front desk. I have learned so much at this job and want to continue to grow and learn new things. The hardest part of my job is really nothing. I love being busy.
parking in the garage and lunch being paid for
not always having the support of my fellow agents, being lumped in with those that dont enjoy what the do.
I worked at Tate, Gaylord, Lucas, Purdom & Workman for 14 years.
Tate, Gaylord, Lucas, Purdom & Workman (Former Employee) – Greensboro, North Carolina – August 14, 2012
This was the best working environment a person could have. I could not have asked for anymore. They were fair in every way a company could be. I was very sad for the firm to close. I worked with the same people for many years.
flexible, fair, kind, i learned a lot in 14 years.
i can't think of anything bad. it was just sad the business closed.
