Dont work here if you know whats good for you
A little bit of everything (Former Employee), Hockley Valley resortJanuary 17, 2013
Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
Considering Hockley Valley is such a well known and seems to be an upper class hotel resort, do not be fooled to believe that they will treat employees with the respect they deserve in every way. They over use you, make you work a lot of hours and do not pay you overtime. If you notice they always have job postings .. there is a reason for that. They – more... recycle there employees if you have a problem with anything there, they will not listen to your concern they just fire you... hence the recycling ! The management there will not help you in anyway, there is no training they just throw you into everything. I know people who have worked there for over 5 years and sti dont get a raise! The human resources will not help you with that either because she works for the owners not for the employees like human resources should. trust me nothing good will come out of working here take it from someone who worked there for a year and in the end i wasnt working with anyone i started with ! IT SUCKS – less

Over worked, underpaid, and under-appreciated.
Second Cook. (Former Employee), hockley valleyJuly 31, 2012
Pros: free golf
Cons: too many to list!
Would not recommend seeking employment at HVR as they are only concerned about their bottom line and care very little for their staff.
They go through employees like there's no tomorrow!! They pay the basic minimum, but expect so much in return. They promise raises, but give none! Just check their job listings to see how many chefs/cooks they need...says – more... it all! – less
