Honest: Initially, I was super excited to work here. However about 2 weeks in I realized that management is terrible. I was being trained by a colleague (granted she was amazing, and actually made me feel wanted on our team) instead of the team lead. The Director's attitude towards the grievances I expressed were along the lines of "It's cheaper to keep her" even though she did next to nothing, except try to terribly micromanage us and unfairly place work loads on to myself and the colleague that trained me. Most importantly, the team lead constantly made religious, political, and racial remarks, such as: "I don't know about hiring her because she speaks "xxx" language and we won't be able to understand her when shes talking to X", "If you don't like this country then why are you here", and constant inappropriate remarks/conversations regarding the president and things like abortion. The fact is, considering the turnover rate for my previous position, that she is a terrible team lead, and the work environment is stifling, uncomfortable, discouraging, and unfair to every degree.

I loved going to work. I think for a while it just got better every day. I looked forward to work. I established a good working relationship with my supervisors and coworkers. Being able to work in "the field" was refreshing. Working at a property for a time was exciting and educational too.

Every day at the company was something new. There was never a dull moment in my opinion. Everyone is great to work with and you are not micro managed.

It would be a great place to work at if only the followed the company polices. This is a good old boys club do not be fooled. The support staff is the best in the business. You can get support form co- managers but not from upper management. too many golf games.
Pros
great support staff
Cons
upper management absent

This was a good place to work at. I gained a love of skills and experience. My favorite part of working here was the people. Management needs some work, it seems there is a lot of favoritism.
