The Homestead
Payroll Clerk, Liquor Inventory, Server (Current Employee), Kankakee, ILMarch 21, 2014
Working at the Homestead is great! I get to meet new people and see our regular costumers on a daily basis. I have been able to advance since I started, and there is always room to take on more roles. I feel like the employees at the Homestead are a family and we all get along great!

HOUSEKEEPER, Maids and Housekeeping Cleaners (Current Employee), Hot Springs, VAJanuary 10, 2014
Cons: housekeeping manger needs to get out
Work with different type of people. Go clean each room, find out who actually care about what their room looks like or not. Some of the mangers didnt care about their employees. The hardest part was deal with people who trash the room and didnt care what they did or even if they cussed you out. I enjoy working with some of the people

Wonderful Resort Hotel with immense history
Front Desk Agent (Current Employee), Hot Springs, VADecember 30, 2012
Pros: free golf, skiing
Cons: standing nearly 8 hours straight
My typical day is generally pretty hectic. Check-in time is 4pm and depending upon the day of week, there are between 40 and 380 room arrivals. I've learned how to handle unhappy guests, problem solving situations, and overall, how to make each guests' stay a memorable one. My Managers are all wonderful individuals, compassionate, and will go out of – more... their way to make the workplace an enjoyable experience. I enjoy working with all of my co-workers. The hardest part of my job is keeping a calm demeanor when dealing with an unruly guest. The most enjoyable part of my job is making a guests stay, one that they'll remember for the rest of their life. – less

Terrible Management & High Stress
Certified Medication Aide/ Autism Associate (Former Employee), Altoona, IADecember 16, 2012
Worst job I ever had. Management demeans staff. Tells staff everything they do is wrong never back staff even when staff is in the right. Only semi good thing is the pay was higher than other organizations, but definitely not worth the stress.

Job for Busy-bodies.
Cashier and Salesperson (Current Employee), Hot Springs, VAOctober 17, 2012
Pros: benefits of free to close to free golf for employees.
Cons: feelings of being "just a number" at the end of the day.
Typical day at work can range from monotonous to hectic depending upon the house count of the hotel as well as the place upper management places you. I have learned that advancement can be limited depending upon who you are as a "good ol' boy" mentality still exists with job placement and benefits. All in all its who you know rather than your worth – more... to the hotel that determines your compensation at the end of the day. – less

Good Place to work
Stewarding Supervisor/Head Night Steward (Current Employee), Hot Springs, VAJuly 3, 2012
Pros: fun atomosphere
Cons: pay scale
Normal day starts out with scheduling and getting all the employees of my department ready. I have learned many things including great management skills and ability to communicate and plan ahead. The co-workers you work with are great people who work hard. There really is not much of anything that is hard about the job. I enjoy the working atmosphere.
