I*hate*NY (12/26/2007) Congratulations on your victory over the clique. They probably aren't gone forever, probably reforming (much like the terminator) in different companies, but to the people at the hotel you're a hero.the confessor (12/27/2007)
Thanks for the good words, yet the fall of cliques like these are inevitable. They are made up of insecure and unqualified people that see forming a gang as the only way to survive long-term.
As I've written in other blogs (see "Parasites of the Workplace"), these losers depend on qualified and fair-minded co-workers to not only carry the workload, but to suffer their antisocial abuse as well. The more successful the clique is at attacking and removing capable workers, the more the business suffers.
In a worst-case scenario, the business literally collapses on itself like a black hole, and clique-members jump ship and publicly blame "the company" for a failure they engineered. Pathetic and sick!
Reminds me of the Movie "The Heathers." The rise and fall of cliques. I have never fit in anywhere I have worked, a square peg in a round hole, to be trite.
Wow, what a scary place, Hotel Hell. The world is a jungle I just don't do well in. I need to be out in the wild with the animals and plants and stuff. People like that scare the hell out of me!

UPDATE! As of this writing, the former resort HR director, a female attorney has quit.
The word circulating is that she quit because the new owners don't want to pay overtime. Undoubtedly, her own pay rate was in question, along with her willingness to protect the hotel cligue.
This is not the first time I've seen a greedy manager walk and then state that they were doing it for the "good of the workers". More lies!!
