    I worked at Orange Lake Resorts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great company with impressive history and foundation. Money is comparable for market, benefits are great.

    Cons

    Corporate doesn't have a strong understanding of the sites challenges but tries to make changes across the board to all. One solution doesn't fit for all. They state they encourage open feedback but when you do, VP level state you are negative rather than positive. The need for sales to be successful overpowers or becomes more important than the decisions of what is ethical and legal. Policies, practices and procedures are hand picked when they are applied based on who makes the company the most money. There are leaders that have had major disciplinary concerns but were not terminated due to their position or relationship with executive team, while others were terminated immediately for a very small infraction in comparison.

    I have been working at Orange Lake Resorts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Willing to hire limited experience and it's great first job experience. If you stick it out for a couple years then you should be able to get higher offers elsewhere. Job Security is pretty good

    Cons

    Happiness hear will very GREATLY depending on which department your work in, and who you report to within that department Hours worked each week can get high. Big issue if salaried. Pay is below what you'd receive elsewhere. If it's your first job, it wont sting as much. Management can be very difficult to work under in some departments. I'm sure some are okay, but others can be a condescending, unreasonable, and prone to micromanaging. Some depts promote freely, some you may not see one for years if ever. Benefits are probably average to below average. Small 4% 401k match.

    Pros

    Potential to make good money if you don't mind the grind.

    Cons

    You will NOT get time off; company churns-and-burns employees; the pay changes ALL THE TIME, so it's very difficult to earn top dollar; if you are not a consistent producer, you WILL be let go; regardless of what they say, there is no "team" environment -- if you do not look out for yourself, you will be taken advantage of; every single guest hates you; you MUST tell half-truths to people all the time if you expect to make any money; this position is a HUGE grind.

    I worked at Orange Lake Resorts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free coffee, consistent pay weekly.

    Cons

    Does not value their employees, most positions do not have a permanent cubicle for you--so basically you carry your belongings and clean each day every day. They do not supply cleaning supplies. You will also have to get in earlier to log onto a working computer.

    Pros

    Great benefits and good experience

    Cons

    There is favoritism. Management frowns on college education. They believe you must work for years to move up and college education is irrelevant. Managers do not have college education and do not know how to deal with employees. They are closed minded to innovatative ideas. Loyal employees who have been with the company for years leave because there is no opportunity to move up.

    I worked at Orange Lake Resorts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Relatively short work day, resort atmosphere, decent medical benefits & hotel discount benefits.

    Cons

    Quotas are changed at will (changed 3 x in one year), Pay schedule was changed 2 x in 18 months to decrease earnings. Poor oversight from upper management to lower and middle management. Office is very political, not merit based as was promised during training. Only the chosen will have opportunity to earn.
