You need to get it out of your head that it is a privilege to work for Biltmore Company b/c the novelty wears off and once it does your employees are stuck with very low paying jobs that demand "gracious hospitality" 100% of the time and it is utterly exhausting! Your employees are one if not the number one reason your guest ratings are so high, you need to appreciate them A LOT more. Any "benefits" your employees get (such as On Track) is clearly a tax write off for you so ultimately it is a benefit for you. Most of employees are not stupid and they know for a fact that your family has worked extremely hard for generations to milk every conceivable tax loophole out there so do not kid yourself that your employees are unaware that they are just an expense you try desperately not to pay. No one faults you or your family for your shrewd tax loophole accounting but for God's sake pay your employees a respectable wage.

Discounts on food and retail and financial programs like OnTrack. Educational classes on Biltmore's history and current plans. The ability to move to a different department...

Answered

It depends on the Department. Full-time generally gets 40 hours/week Flex, around 33. Reserve staff will get a lot of hours during Candlelight, but that will decrease significantly once that is done.

Answered

Great people, low pay and exhausting work. It is a beautiful place.

A couple steps, and a urine drug test. Phone interview, face to face. They got back to me quickly

Answered

High turnover job overrated stressful place to work

Answered

Entitled guests, not knowing if you'll get full-time or be laid-off, and not knowing what time you'll get home because the winery is short-staffed and people called out

Answered

Fine, but telling people you work there typically leads to doing your job not at work.

Answered

I'm sure they will be just fine
