Customer Service (Former Employee), Aberdeen, SD – November 1, 2013
Pros: great coworkers
Cons: emotionally taxing
The most enjoyable part of my job was the work environment. I loved being able to have a good relationship with my fellow coworkers, and being able to have a set schedule each day I came into work. I also really enjoyed helping guests solve their difficulties with the hotel, and book their vacations.
The hardest part of my job by far was when I had – more... an upset guest screaming and cursing at me for something over which I had no control, and trying to calm them down while still trying to take down their information so that they could receive help with what ever difficulty they were facing. I also found it very difficult to receive calls from guests that had been living at the hotel, and were being evicted because they didn't have money for rent. – less

Activities associate (Former Employee), Orlando, FL – June 13, 2013
Pros: amazing pto
A typical day at work was doing daily activities, interacting with guests, and opening and closing the building. I learned how to work as a team and create ideas together to manage and set activities also how to make them more enjoyable for our guests. My coworkers were fun to be around and we had a good chemistry considering the team was quite small, – more... but even at a larger property it was just as pleasant. I would have to say the hardest part about working is when events had to be planned and set and handling the amount of guest we had, being that it was either a hit or miss we had to mentally prepare and physically prepare for the day. For last but not least the most enjoyable part of my job was setting events and having to come with ideas to make it as exciting and pleasurable as possible for our guest, there was honor in making something small something big for others stay. – less

Vacation Sales Specialist (Former Employee), Saint John, NB – June 29, 2014
Sales is a pressured environment enough as it is. But having poor judgement and bad knowledge of job requirements makes things a far bigger struggle. The job and rewards were more than enough to keep one interested. Poor decisions from a decent location.
