Tips on Shoes to Bring

  • Shoes must be black, full coverage, closed-toe, with slip-resistant outsoles. Material must be leather or non-porous material: Canvas or cloth is not permitted for safety reasons. Some departments, like Campground or Maintenance, may have different shoe requirements. Please check with your department for specifics.
  • Keep your shoes clean and in good condition.
  • Food & Beverage Front of House employees must wear dark socks as part of the uniform.
  • You have until one week after your first paycheck to purchase the correct shoes if you did not bring a pair with you. We have a shoe purchase program through which you may buy shoes using a payroll deduction. More information on this program is available through your manager or through the Housekeeping Office.
