"We Entertain When It Rains"  


The Sun is always shining at Mohegan Sun -
The Staff
by Carolyn Donovan, March 2006


The people

Every staff member we encountered was polite and pleasant. The cleaning lady, whom we never saw, left us this note: “Thanks for your tips.” And since my mother was at one time a cleaning lady for richer people’s houses, I am big on actually leaving tips every day for the people who clean up the rooms I am staying in.

On checkout, I had a wonderful conversation with Isabela, a university student from Brazil who is on a work abroad-type program. She is working on an international relations degree back home, and really liked working at the hotel because it provided her with interactions with many different types of people, and a chance to keep her English-language skills up-to-date. The hotel has some work/training deals with a few foreign universities, and since I got to go on a work abroad program myself through Umass (I was a Kelly Girl in Dublin), I think it’s a great opportunity for both sides.
