As a MANAGER: This is a great job for someone who has no other obligations. You will learn a lot. The hotel environment is BEAUTIFUL. The guests are friendly and happy. Loved working with my immediate team.
HR is available at all times for any questions or support as well as other managers in the company.
UNFORTUNATELY, you will work weekends and holidays if you are a MANAGER. There is zero comp days off for working OT or major holidays. If someone calls out or is a no show you WILL be expected to get there by 7:00am even on your day off (Sunday's too). Unlike regular retail these stores are open 365 days a year including Thanksgiving & Christmas.
Expect your personal cell phone to ring all hours every day. Text messages and emails are also nonstop (this was the biggest con for me) You will have NO work/life balance.
* I recommend this company if you do NOT have family obligations. This is also a GREAT job if you are obsessively organized, LOVE paperwork, love kicking it old school with faxing everything & truly enjoy having your phone bursting with all the phone calls, texts & emails.
Hotels, contests, HR support, fellow managers in area
Emails, Phone calls, TEXTS even on days off, stress from every corporate dept
