Company Culture

Lack of good communication skills in upper management.

Support from management

Kalahari in the Poconos is run like a third world country.

Teamwork

From what I have seen this place needs to have a union.

Freedom to work independently

It's my way or the highway

Internal Communication

Kalahari say that all your experience is important but they won't take any input from you.

Career Development

Yes as long as you don't mind working 60 hours a week.

Environmental Friendliness

Kalahari wants you to think they are friendly on the interview.

Work-Life Balance

Kalahari expect you to live there.

Company Image

Kalahari went thru three corporate chef's while I was there.

Challenging Work

Getting upper management on board.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Kalahari needs to be have a union in place so workers can get raises more fairly and evaluated regularly.

What I like about the company

It's a beautiful Resort

What I dislike about the company

Management from the top to the bottom run the resort like a concentration camp.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen to baseline associates. Compare notes. When everyone says the same thing, something is wrong.

What I like about the company

Some managers are really cool and actually care about associates.

What I dislike about the company

There is no communication at all unless it’s negative. The owners are money hungry people who degrade everyone. They constantly have bad things to say about everyone and it’s an extremely stressful environment when they’re in town. Managers on edge, associates on edge, guests are not cared for. Owners only care about money, they don’t care if someone isn’t safe.

Company Culture

Kalahari is like a big family.

Support from management

Yes, Grewt support on the learning transition

Teamwork

Everyone is ready to help and train

Internal Communication

Great communication .

Career Development

There is a lot of training on the spot from coworkers, but not much professional training is made available to too many employees, only certain key employees

Overall compensation for your work

Not at all. Finance dept is considered a "non-revenue department", therefore not much incentive for this specific department.

Office / Work Environment

Management and coworkers show a lot of mutual support and respect.

Company Image

Great unique attractions for guests

Job Security

Not much risk, they try to accommodate and keep good employees

Challenging Work

Yes. We have to be ready to a flexible schedule, train coworkers. Get work down in a timely manner. Yes, very proud to have a system that has work for everyone involved in the process, and still be able to get the work done.
