Nightmare
Employee (Former Employee) –  Orillia, ONDecember 4, 2015
This place is very sad! Every single day at work I felt unhappy. Desperately in need of renovations, some new management (some is good), better food, new staff lodging. The guests were generally in a good mood being on vacation, and they brighten your day, but that has nothing to do with the employer. It is very far from town so its hard to leave the "resort" if you don't have a car. Also, not really a town you would want to go to anyways (kind of scary) but still need something to do so it's better than nothing. Never ever ever did 80% of the management tell you when you were doing a good job, they only knew how to recognize the bad. They pay is absolute bare minimum wage. Shame!!!
Pros
Free meal if you're okay with mediocre at best food
Cons
Everything else

Night Clerk/Security (Former Employee) –  Orillia, ONSeptember 7, 2015
Two jobs rolled into one. I would perform the Night clerk duties by preparing paperwork for the following morning. This would include which rooms are checking out as well as entering the next days activities on the information board.
Security job included walking around to make sure certain buildings were secure.

Summer Job (Not for the faint of heart)
Server/Bartender (Former Employee) –  Orillia, ONApril 10, 2015
This was a great summer job. Strong family management, exceptional working culture, and some of the best times of my life.

Opportunity to live "on-resort" and many positions available to move around to.

Excellent place to learn and grow in a positive environment
Reservation Agent (Former Employee) –  Orillia, ONOctober 29, 2013
Great place to work, the pay could be better, but the other benefits, such as use of facilities, and meals prepared by skilled chef, more than make up for any shortcomings in salary. Excellent management team, and great employees make this an ideal place to work. Very laid-back and relaxed atmosphere, and most jobs within the resort are very easy to learn and get used to. Don't expect to have any holidays to yourself, it's a resort, and that is their busiest time.
Pros
great management team, meals semi-included while working
Cons
will be working all holidays such as xmas, labour day
