    Please share your comments about your experience : The park was recently purchased and I was placed in as the Office Manager. I am still currently employed by the owners. There are many issues with this park that are slowly being rectified by the current owners. I did privately speak with Mike and his wife Caroline, in regards to the experience they expressed in their review of the park. Many of the items they brought up are true and have been brought to the attention of the owners. The issue of there not being the proper equipment needed has been taken care of (tools purchased along with supplies). As to not reimbursing for use of personal supplies, it was unfortunately not brought to my attention, as it would have been replaced or reimbursed. As soon as I saw that in their review, I offered to reimburse them and Caroline said it was not necessary to do so. Mike was a true asset to our maintenance department and his work ethic shows in the way that even with the issues he encountered he completed his commitment to our park.

    Please share your comments about your experience : uring two interviews before accepting the position, I asked and was told the resort had all of the tools and supplies needed to perform the tasks assigned – they did not. All workampers used their own tools and supplies (ie. Drill bits, tape, wire connectors, screws, etc.) and were not compensated for the tool and supply use. The compensation was to be 20 hours (four, 5 hour days) and one on call weekend per month for emergencies. Emergencies were understood to be electrical and/or water issues affecting customers. Management soon had non-emergencies needing workcampers attention such as someone needing an additional picnic table, removing and assembling an easy chair in a rental unit and other issues that should/could have waited for scheduled work hours. The park is old and has not had electrical upgrades in a long time. Wiring to power boxes was not of the correct gage and could not carry the required load. At our site the voltage would often only be 114 volts as indicated on the energy management system. Outlets and breakers were overloaded and needed frequent replacement often on the same site as customers overloaded the underpowered system. Customers also frequently opened and modified the power supply boxes, usually to bypass the meters. This was brought to management’s attention but there were no repercussions to customers so they continued to play with the electrical after workers had performed repairs. The most frustrating part of the job was the lack of enforcement by management of posted rules. Workampers brought infractions, (ie. Not picking up dog waste, un-bagged fish guts and used cat litter in dumpster, and many more), but nothing was done to rectify the issues.
