I worked at Bacara Resort & Spa

Pros

Overall, Bacara was a nice place to work...the staff is for the most part, well polished and professional. Resort is gorgeous..

Cons

It can get very stressful on staff at some points due to guest/senior management requests and sometimes short/poor staffing. Run by a committee, which brings up the old saying: "too many cooks in the kitchen"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bacara should really go back to the days when there was a Resort Manager instead of a Board of Managers who take turns "being" the Resort Manager.

    I worked at Bacara Resort & Spa

    Pros

    Excellent 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.

    Cons

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

    I have been working at Bacara Resort & Spa part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Casual, friendly environment with co-workers and even managers (usually). Wealthy guests led to generally good tips. Enough staff to get requested days off most of the time, except holiday weekends.

    Cons

    Sometimes a little too casual, especially for such a top-end resort. Also sometimes guests were pompous a**holes, but not much you can do about that. Often work shifts up to 9 or 10 hours, but it's good money if you can handle it.
