Server/ Bartender (Current Employee) – Skytop, PA – December 5, 2017
meals on a schedule, benefits only available for employees 1 day a week, management looks down on staff. Although it is easy money and has year round business, it takes a special level of patience to make it in this hotel.

The management at skytop lodge is extremely corrupt and they seem to pick favorites very easily and stick to it. One other extern was there at the same time as I was and they treated her with respect and just kicked me to the curb.

Skytop Lodge was a very different work environment that I've ever experienced working. Although the hours were very flexible and also very extensive I enjoyed working for Skytop Lodge I would recommend this work place for anyone that is looking for an employer that has fun working with different cultures and also doesn't mind having a job that is not repetitive each time you come to work then Skytop Lodge is a place for you. Also it includes room and board with meals included with your room and board not many jobs offer that.
Not repetitive, meeting new different people from all around the world, and also great pay

Not the best place but defiantly make money there. Love the vibe and the crew for the most part makes the job worth it. Place needs some serious renovations but its a really nice area and cool place to work

It is an okay place to work. Busy during the slow and very slow during the winter. Best to have a back up job. The guests that stay are friendly and working there provides you with a different kind of experience.
Great job and experience for me I have learned how to mix and spray chemicals. I am getting more experience with the irrigation system. I am also getting experience with training and leasing the crew. The management on the golf course is great, but have minor issues with the other management.
Free lunches, great crew, good golf course management, good overall working envirroment

This company hires overseas and takes jobs from americans. They ship them in by the dozens provide food housing and lower pay on site so they dont have to do the right thing and pay americans a good wage. Half of the management dosnt know what the other is doing is a cluster ..... they take money out of your pay for meals even if you do not eat. Your paycheck is never right. Constantly have to deal with accounting for discrepancies. Then they tell you two weeks they will fix it and then your missing more hours. Most people that have been there for years are leaving because of change. This used to be a good place to work. They say perks and you can use facilities but they are not all included. Pretty much use them on certain days or hours only. They cant keep locals and have burned bridges. Constantly a high turnover. You're dispensable because there is always another country to ship from. Dont do it you will regret it! Unless you want a free flight in and out of america or should I say a free way to get in and never leave. Ps tips are not yours to keep. They tack on gratuities to the bills and keep them. As well as server fees and bar fees. Its all kept in house. You dont see a penny. They will however tell you the opposite to lure you in.
housing if your homeless as 3 squares a day
high turnover overworked underpayed good luck with a day off
Tips tacked on to weddings and banquets do not go to severs or bartenders

The place is nice. Management is nice but unorganised. When first starting everything is all over the place. Perks cafeteria for workers. Downfalls..they hire out of country and expect to treat Americans the way they treat overseas employees. Owners or management tack on tips to big parties 18 percent but servers and bartenders do not see those gratuties. So people booking parties thing tips included but house gets it not thr bartenders or severs. They also charge a fee for service which employees do not see. Hourly wages only! They also do not allow tip jars out for parties so makes it hard to make anything extra.
Cafetria for employees and on site housing
Charges for gratuities for parties assessed but not given to employees and no tips jars allowed

a typical day is like go to work there's five managers and three of them really don't know how to talk to there employees. when working you get breaks with certain managers depends on who team you on it don't matter if you take one or not they take money out your check for breaks. it's highly unorganized there's no kind of communication between management and employees.
some days you get breaks and they take it out your check even if you don't get breaks
