They are a good company to work for lots of benefits however unless your face fits you won't progress honestly it doesn't matter how good you are actually the worse you are the more likely you'll move up . Also there are too many chiefs not enough Indians and head office rules despite having no idea what happens on ground floor brand is great but different parks require different things.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
To much interference from head office

Working for Center parcs is great fun, they have managed to get a great balance between work and home life and give lots of fab benefits for working with them. There are lots of opportunities for recognition and they make you feel very valued as a team member.

I worked in the spa but mixed with lots of departments across the village and everyone seemed to have the same vibe of the place!
Pros
good perks, appreciation, fun teams
Cons
hard to get to without a vehicle

I started here as a lifeguard 5 years ago and never intended to make a career out of it. But here I am 5 years later and I am a manager here and have been for 18 months now. Progression opportunities are brilliant and the training/development plans for the staff members that are keen and willing are brilliant.

Very hard work for really bad wage. One perk is being able to use facilities when allowed. No extra pay for bank holiday Christmas or new year.
Treatment of staff and work load very unreasonable.

Very clicky atmosphere.

I worked for center Parcs for around 2 years.
I gained a lot of experience in the hospitality industry. They have a range of contracts and hours to suit everyone.

Mostly management are great. There isn’t much opportunity to progress and was made lots of offers that weren’t kept to.

The company does really care about its staff and has great bonuses and discounts schemes. Great perks

Interview was hard but once through that, you have intense training. Perks of the job are amazing. Lots of free stuff for employees at the parcs. Good atmosphere to work in. Quite stressful on intake and leaving days, but helps the day go fast.
Pros
Perks, good pay, nice surroundings to work in.
Cons
Work hours, not much work/life balance.

This company are literally only bothered about money instead of the welfare of staff. Expected to work as robots rather than having youre own personality.

Center PARC's,should be a great place to work,but the reality is that it really isn't,there are far to many managers and not enough worker's on the shop floor.
The senior management are responsible for making decisions that in my opinion they are not qualified to do,they largely consist of the culling of staff to get the payroll down!!

As the saying goes, too many chiefs, not enough Indians. The process to make change is exhausting. The management structure prohibits progress and they have their hands tied. I understand it's a big company with a lot of liability but sticking with a process for fear of the unknown seems foolish to me.
Pros
Great people, good benefits with respect to access of the parks.
Cons
Lack of direction within departments.

Fantastic - like all jobs there are pros and cons - however, Center Parcs pros really weigh out the cons in my opinion. The opportunities to develop are all there, you get out what you put in.
Love it!
Pros
Benefits, development and staff
Cons
Some under staffing in areas

The way CenterParcs is run is phenomenal, I couldn’t say a bad word about the place. Always making sure the work load was okay for me and I really appreciated that from such a large company.

Sometimes days can be long but normally enjoyable
Very team oriented

Hardest part was dealing with rude and self entitled guests but didn't happen very often, most guests were really friendly and easy to deal with.

Friendly staff all over the park and also comes with great benefits!

Overworked and underpaid, unrealistic expectations and standards for time given. No support from management. This place is the worse ever place to work! If you like your mental wellbeing and physical wellbeing this is not the job for you!!
