Wouldn't recommend until GM changes
Server (Former Employee) –  Harrodsburg, KYJanuary 26, 2017
A typical day at work is to come in an hour early and get opening duties finished before serving guests, (Cutting lemons, bringing breads and desserts into the kitchen from downstairs in the bakery, bringing ice upstairs from the downstairs kitchen, making coffee and teas, preparing the dessert tray, taking out the trash and linens, etc.)
From this job I learned that hard-work doesn't get you anywhere at Shaker Village.
The culture of this place is hard to explain, you will just have to see it for yourself.
The toughest part of the job is not having what the Government would consider "A Break," there is also no smoking aloud on the property whatsoever. If you can't walk fast pace all day and lift a lot of heavy things constantly, this is not the job for you. If you are looking for a organized, fair place to work this is not the job for you.
The most enjoyable part of the job is making friends and what I called, My Family. MOST of the time the guests are very pleasant. Although, I wouldn't get too comfortable with your job considering it could be ripped from underneath you with no real explanation at all.
The most I ever made in gratuities in a day was somewhere around 425$ And the least was probably 6$.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
No breaks

You are looked down on by other employees.
Custodian/Janitor / Facilities / Housekeeping (Former Employee) –  Harrodsburg, KYAugust 12, 2016
If you like days filled with dramatic gossip and favoritism this is the place. The best part is that the toilets give you less s*** than the humans.
Pros
beautiful scenery and history
Cons
97% of the people there are fake

Server (Current Employee) –  Harrodsburg, KYMay 14, 2013
Its a fun place to work with wxcellent co-workers and management. It can be quite fast paced at times but everyone is a team and helps one another out. You get a nice break in between your shifts so that helps an long day go bye.
Pros
breaks between shifts, good money, and atmosphere.
