Greenbrier- 4 Stars

Most departments in the hotel are way understaffed and not given the supplies they need to do their jobs 100%. Employess bathrooms haven't been cleaned in over a year!! Yes you have to cut some things to work towards profitability but you also have to adhere to certain standards. It's hard for people to come to work with a great attitude when their leadership isn't behind them.  (Feb 20, 2013 | post #28)

Greenbrier- 4 Stars

I couldn't have said this better myself! Yes some of the employees have a bad attitude, but again that falls to lack of leadership. We are the bricks of the foundation but our leaders are the mortar that should hold us together. Perfect example is the casino that consistently scores well on the Forbes shop reports and I am not talking out the beverage service they do not fall under casino management which is the best in the hotel! I used to have such a sense of pride walking into work everday but not anymore and it truly breaks my heart. Mr. J I have faith in you but you have to pull away the wool that is covering your eyes and get some true leaders in the hotel to bring it back up to standards and please spend money on training if you want the 5th star!  (Feb 15, 2013 | post #16)

layoffs at the greenbrier

Yes I have heard our counts went down this year and am pretty sure it is due to the deprivation of guest services last winter, unfortunately the bean counters did not think about the long term effects of this. I have faith in Mr. Justice however he really needs to have a hard look at who he has running the hotel because they are not doing a good job at all. If the casino was allowed to do what all casinos do in giving lower rates of comp rooms to big players then we could bring in the business however the hotel management is ignorant of how a hotel with a casino works. they think all the money should come from room revenue without realizing how much money the casino could actually bring in. They want it to be nothing more than an amenity, and I think they are afraid to let it run they way it should. Mickey and Kmiec are ruining the place and I really wish Mr. J could see this because I think he would change it if he really knew how bad it is.  (Jan 15, 2013 | post #27)

layoffs at the greenbrier

Before the casino we'd have maybe 40 45 rooms rented during the week in the winter now we are running 100 or more midweek, so our occupancy has increased during the winter months. the casino management does all they can to get people in the hotel during the winter. Layoffs have always been a part of the hotel long before Mr. J bought it, and most of the staff like their time off and have complained because they didn't get it.  (Jan 11, 2013 | post #24)

New Years Eve at the Greenbrier at the Greenbrier

Mr. Justice offered some very low room rates over the past few years so everyone could get a chance to stay at the hotel. That was the Tributes to the Virginia package and yes some of the guests who took advantage of this offer were a little underdressed and not quite up to speed on their etiquette but so what. these rates are not as widely available anymore. The New Years Eve party was awesome there was a live band in the casino and everyone was dressed very nice and had a great time! The Greenbrier is still a premier resort yes there are issues but what company doesn't have issues. The big man really needs to look at his management in the hotel because they are the ones running the hotel down and are pulling the wool over his eyes.  (Jan 11, 2013 | post #17)

Lottery board to look at Greenbrier casino access

He never broke the law. The day trips were in accordance with the Lottery the tour groups were not promoting it properly and as soon as it was found out they were asked to change their wording. Get your story straight!  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #38)

Lottery board to look at Greenbrier casino access

The casino was allowed to to have day trip bus tours as long as there were 400 rooms rented this was done with APPROVAL by the WV lottery. There are no seasonal foreign workers in the casino.  (Oct 25, 2012 | post #20)

Dear Jim Justice

This is the fault of the government not Jim Justice and it is wrong to blame him. The hospital should have been better prepared for an emergency the state should have made sure the hospital was up and running blame the governor blame the president but don't blame Jim Justice.  (Aug 17, 2012 | post #232)

The Greenbrier has always always had layoffs in the slow season, this year there were actually managers layed off not just hourly employees. If people don't like working there and just want to gripe and complain then by all means they need to quit, please please quit and get another job.  (Aug 11, 2012 | post #40)

When Mr. J bought the hotel the employees were all excited and hip hip hooray, what did they think he was going to do? Walk around handing out $100 bills to everyone? No he expected everyone to do their job and do it well so the hotel could be profitable again, he told you if you were going to be a stick in the mud then take your stick and go elsewhere, and that is exactly what you bunch of whiney babies need to do!!!! Go try making a living working somewhere else and within a months time you'll be crying to get your job back at the Greenbrier. You bunch of ungrateful yokels!  (Aug 11, 2012 | post #37)

Jim Justice

I still can't believe so many people want to blame Mr Justice, you know what we showed the nation by getting this event going after such devastation? We showed them that us West Virginians are a tough breed with a get er done attitude! This event provides jobs shows our beautiful state to millions of people and brings those people here. you may not work directly for the Greenbrier but the people who do work there support the other local business'.I guess by reading your post you consider yourself a good church going christian, well that kind of attitude is the most un christian attitude I have ever heard!  (Jul 8, 2012 | post #9)
