Working as a Dancer/Entertainer for Haven brought out my confidence and helped me find out a lot about myself. The hours were split shifts, very fast paced and it’s a very energetic job.

Most departments had poor management and lack of training and highly biased. No communication between staff which makes it difficult to work around...
Cons
Low Rates for role.

Whilst i worked their often the younger members were yelled at by the managers when they were having a bad day. They had constantly been changing how we had to do things pretty much weekly and would tell people off when they either didn't know or made the mistake of doing it the old way. They fired a lot of the older (18+) members so they didn't have to pay as much for the staff but left the service heavily under trained and experienced. Many people would come and go and often it was down to normal workers to deal with the manager's/team leader's role. Plus it was less of a business and more persoanl since if people liked you more or you could flirt or 'get in' with certain higher up staff, you had a better time. I remember it got to a point where I personally was having to do the whole of the front of house for a decently large building since the manager didn't bother to show up, staff left due to the job being that bad, team leader hanging out the back emptying a couple bottle bins and the only other member of the FoH in the kitchen helping with desserts. Honestly was one of the worst Jobs I've worked in and would put anyone off working with that company or a position in that field again. But this could be just that job style since the next bar-tending job i did also deceived in how to job was actually ran
Cons
Couldnt keep your tips, pay wasnt good, managers didnt do anything but cause more chaos, large turnover in staff, no support from above, very little training, was literally the bare minimum you could legally(possibly illegally) call a workplace.

Terrible company to work for, no one knows what there doing! You never get paid correctly.. payslips conveniently go missing so you can,t complain to your manager & give them a hard time. So clicky it's unbelievable.. all the managers are intrested in is there bonus & talking about other staff members. Don, t tell them anything personal or everyone will no. You actually get rewarded for failure
Pros
20% off already over priced stuff
Cons
Underpaid & messed about

Terrible unsupportive management. Bullying culture rife. A lot of back stabbing. You are treated with no respect. You are expected to work Long hours for rubbish pay.

On line applications go any where and give know information where next interviews taking place . Had to phone up chosen holiday park to find out. AS know responding when email application site. Even if got the job
Online pass words are not saved for what ever reason when needing to do onlin training . This most be lot of pressure on higher rank staff .

Full of opportunity, and development of its team members. Company not afraid to put new team on courses and pay for them rather than have team pay out before employement.

When I got the job, I was looking forward to it. However I couldn't get out there fast enough after each shift. Staff talked about each other, management abused you when feeling down and laugh at you if you mention complaining about them.

Very toxic place from what I remember.
