I worked at Bacara Resort & Spa full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

This 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

Cons

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

    I worked at Bacara Resort & Spa

    Pros

    The pay was very good for those without a college degree. I learned valuable skills related to customer service and team work.

    Cons

    Management is a bunch of greedy, power-hungry grease-bags who value nothing more than an extra dollar in their pocket.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about employees needs when it comes to hours and taking time off.

    difficult to get time off, but that's common in the hospitality industry. good training. management was often under-qualified, but this was past management.
