Management (Current Employee) – Farmington, PA – January 2, 2016
Nemacolin is an exciting place to work. There are many opportunities across many departments. If you work hard and keep your nose clean, you will be recognized for it and offered promotions. It is great hands-on experience that makes you a stronger, more agile employee. Expect to work hard, but the rewards can be great.
Director of Safety and Security (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – October 30, 2015
Challenging place to work, lot of fun, very demanding on time. They were always adding new things to make it interesting. Met a lot of neat people from Presidents to Hollywood and music superstars. I was in charge of all security and safety, all risk management, workers compensation, liability claims. Very challenging position. Position was eliminated in June 2015, along with many other Director Positions.
Always new things happening, opportunity to meet so many neat people
drive was an hour to and from work, owners difficult
Reservations Department Supervisor (Current Employee) – Farmington, PA – June 21, 2015
Every day is different at this 2,000 acre resort in southwestern Pennsylvania. Guest service is the most important thing each day. There are some employee discounts/benefits that no other employer can offer.
Recreation Coordinator (Current Employee) – Farmington, PA – May 4, 2015
This was a good entry level position for employees with minimal experience. It was a combination of working, playing, and learning at first. Throughout the years, I outgrew the position. I would recommend this job to a young student as a fun way to make money throughout school.
Consistently busy work environment, but is a fun atmosphere.
The Tavern Restaurant Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Farmington, PA – May 12, 2014
A typical work day is being ready to be "on the go." After all, it is a restaurant at a five star, five diamond resort. First thing is first, prepping the staff on what to expect in the up coming lunch and dinner shifts. We typically have an average number on what to expect each day. I over see all FOH (front of house) operations. I deal with concerns with guests such as an unsatisfied customer with either the service or food. Regardless of the experience, good or bad, it is my job that the guest leaves satisfied and happy. The hardest part of my job would definitely be the work and life balance. Since it is a restaurant at a resort, we are open every holiday, long hours, and 7 days a week. At times, it can become stressful. What I love most about my job is that I am consistently moving. There is never a dull moment and I am always on my feet, which in returns makes time go by fast. I also enjoy conversing with such a diverse group. Whether it's with the guests staying with us or just simply the staff.
Line Cook (Former Employee) – Farmington, PA – April 29, 2014
It was a learning experience definitely by the most part. But overall there management was horrible in some areas of the resort. I took a lot out of the externship, but I would never recommend any young adults that go to IUP Culinary Art School to go to this resort. It may have been good for other students, but it certainly was not my cup of tea.
Steward/Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Farmington, PA – April 10, 2014
Tough work all day! Beautiful landscape and rain all the time. I had to learn some PATUA in order to get along with my co-workers from Jamaica. The area has a lot of history involved which I really appreciate.
Group Recreation Supervisor (Current Employee) – Farmington, PA – March 17, 2014
There is never a dull moment at this resort. One day, you are helping a family do a ropes course-- the next day you are doing a team building activity for over 40 employees of a large corporation. The job duties vary greatly, including planning , coordinating, and supervising activities, working with other departments, and ensuring the safety of the guests . This broad list of duties has allowed me to grow in many different areas and aquire many different skills. Working at Nemacolin has helped me learn how to deal with customers to ensure that they have the most pleasurable time possible at the resort. I have become comfortable working with all types of people and confident in being able to solve any situations (both good and bad). The staff works as a team toward the goal of 100 percent customer satisfaction and to live up to the resorts motto of "Expect the Unexpected" One of the drawbacks is the lack of time off for holidays--but on the plus side there is a great deal of satisfaction in helping a family enjoy their time at the resort. It is always rewarding when guests return to Nemacolin and remember you for the wonderful experience you were able to give for them.
large amount of activities to manage, both indoors and outdoors

The typical day at work is to take care of the floors. What i learned is how to take care of stone floors. The management is very nice. The hardest part of the job is keeping busy.The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people.
