In an industry that typically has more than 100% employee turnover annually, TradeWinds has long been a standout for long-tenured employees. Over 150 employees have been with us 10 or more years; and that doesn’t count those people who may have moved or had a break in service and then returned!

Patti Pierce, 30 years “I can hardly believe 30 years ago I walked behind the front desk at 3 p.m. to start my shift. I’m still here, but now in the Revenue & Reservations Department. Life is good at TradeWinds!”

Dean Fortune, 34 years “So much has changed, but much is the same. When we opened TradeWinds back in ’86, our focus was on personalized service and a professional staff: hopefully, that will never change!”

Donnie Robinson, 36 years “I remember the Brown Derby (where RumFish Grill is today) and a laundry chute next to Room 1822. I’ve worked laundry, grounds and now as a houseman. A lot has changed, and I still like what I do!”

Margarita Yepes, 30 years “I started as a Concierge with a white blouse and pink bow; the first uniforms! Banquets is my life; my staff is my family; it fulfills my heart.”
