ASSISTANT F&B DIRECTOR (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – January 28, 2018
The GM at the time was very poor at management and very stressful to work under. That being said they have since replaced that individual. The salary was competitive but the benefits were awful and extremely expensive.

I would love to tell you we drank green tea and had massages every day however that was not the case. Destination Spas is a pretty intense market segment. Not having a huge corporation help to help we are on our own. Which has its good points and bad.
Guest Service Representative (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – August 2, 2016
Lake Austin spa resort is a unique opportunity to grow in the hospitality industry. A typical day includes a lot of hands on communication with guests but also other co workers. Everyone is enjoyable for the most part and at the end of the day everyone does the best they possibly can to take care of the guests. The benefits of spa treatment discounts, the gym, health insurance and frozen yogurt daily are a plus to the job.
Discounts on spa treatments, access to the gym facilities and frozen yogurt
Cook (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – May 18, 2016
It's a beautiful place to work, easy job, but you won't ever get a raise, and you won't have any perks as they seem to offer you ( you can only use the tiny gym and the indoor pool, not kayak on the lake, not the outdoor pool ) so not worth the commute. Friendly coworkers, and that's it.
Locker room assistant is an easy but tiring job. It never gets old how lazy and gross people can be. Managers say they'll work with you only if it continues to benefit them and the company. Some coworkers were friendly, others were straight up cold. It is easier to work alone then to split the work with a coworker; it also makes time go by quicker.
Server (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – June 30, 2015
The staff is really friendly and the scenery is really nice to be surrounded by. The commute, no matter what, will be more than 25 minutes, unless you live in Steiner Ranch. However, it's not very organized and isn't a structured environment. The owners don't want to pay their employees more than 10$ or 12$ an hour(which is 10$ for most positions), and you don't get quarterly or yearly raises, even after 5 years. Also, the waitstaff does not include any bussers/hosts/bartenders, so they greet and bus their own tables while still making half the food the guests order, and they still operate on a paper ticket system.
free lunch, free frozen yogurt.
Commute, low pay, doing 5 peoples jobs, paper ticket system, etc.
