  • More job security and full time positions.

What I like about the company

The employees and management are fantastic. The work is never dull, and the visitors are usually wonderful.

What I dislike about the company

Seasonal receiving half the pay for most of the same work. The limited full time opportunities. The fact the company thinks the workers arent worth it, and constantly ask what they're doing to even make an experience.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More freedom and flexibility for staff ideas.

What I like about the company

CEO organizes conversations with each individual site and allows staff to submit anonymous questions that he will answer.

What I dislike about the company

Moving from out of state for the job, I felt very unsupported in the move process. I was not allowed to talk to my direct supervisor and had to work with a member of HR. I think an organization this size should offer moving resources.

Many news is foundout through public announcements on social media, leaving staff int he dark about announcements.
