    Great college job

    Sales Agent (Former Employee)
    Goleta, CA

    ProsThis was one of my favorite jobs I've had. I worked there all through out my college years. They were very flexible with working with my school schedule. The training is very thourough and managers are happy to coach you through difficult situations. While working there I tried out three ditfferent positions and enjoyed them all: Honor Bar, In Room Dining Sales Agent and I also worked in Banquets. Banquets was fun but very long hours. But once the paycheck came around it was all worth it. Some of the great perks of working at Bacara are: Celebrity sightings, free meals at the cafeteria, friendly staff, good pay, opportunity to move up/change positions, easy to make friends, fun place to work =D

    ConsHorribly ugly uniforms, have to work weekends, early morning shifts, and holidays, dealing with very difficult demanding guests

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pastry Cook

    Pastry Cook (Current Employee)
    Santa Barbara, CA

    ProsThe people are great and they have a sense of family here. There are new banquets and parties that keep things exciting also.

    ConsThey are experiencing a slow time so they are cutting back peoples hours a lot. Which is putting more work on to each employer.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would love to see new employees have a longer training program with in the dept. The welcoming and group orientation was great.

    Quality of Service is No. 1 Here

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompany culture was extremely pervasive from top to bottom. All staff were indoctrinated on how to provide the same high quality level of service.

    ConsBecause quality of service was consistent on all levels, management tended to have a downsized role.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExpect much from your employees, and respond more in defense of their service when dealing with customers

    Beautiful place to work, so-so management

    Banquets Server (Former Employee)

    ProsExcellent pay, great food in break room, beautiful location, friendly co-workers, laundry in-house so uniforms are always ready to go, and room for growth.

    ConsNot a lot of attention paid to time-off requests, very long hours, but other than that not a bad place to work.
