Do Not Work Here!!!!!

Started working here in June of 2013, and everything looked good for the first week or so. I understood the place to be a bit on the rustic resort style, but it was beyond horrible. The place was filthy! The kitchen I was supposed to run was in dire need of repairs, the other Chef I worked with was an awesome guy, but no matter what we cleaned, it looked as though we never touched it. We were never allowed to make our own orders, and the Chef of the whole resort, was also the operations manager of the whole resort, and would order blindly to pump up the numbers to fictitiously show that the other two restaurants were doing well, but somehow we weren't.
I was also promised more money than i got, but was not reimbursed for several more weeks. My first check, i didnt receive until 4:00pm when everyone else got paid at 9:00am. And somehow, i was only paid for 2 days, when i was supposed to get paid for 12 days. But the tip of the iceberg was that i would go to work at 5:00 am but wouldnt be given keys to get in and would be cussed at for not starting on time, when i couldnt even get into the door, then i would work until 10:00 pm or later and have to start all over again the next day! and the wage for those long days averaged out to about $3.50 an hour!!! With no tips. We finally got a good Hotel Manager, who used to work for the Navy, and was vetted Top Secret by our government, and they wouldnt even trust him with the keys to the building!

However, i did meet a fair amount of good people working there, Frank the bartender at Elk View Inn, and a couple of other people, but for the most part it was a horrible work experience.

The worst thing you can do is show up at this place to work without a car, thats what they want. They practically gave me an ultimatum that there was no way i could leave because i had no where else to go! Most of the other employees were treated like that as well, and i even gave a ride to an employee and dropped him off on his next adventure because of the boat they put him in.
