Fairmont: Sonoma & Big Island

Banquets and Special Events Captain (Former Employee)
Sonoma, CA

I worked at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGorgeous properties, great benefits, fun people, good work.

ConsBoth the hotels I worked for (Sonoma Mission Inn and on the Orchid on Big Island) were embarrassingly nepotistic when it came to hiring of their highest level management. Definitely the mid-level managers and below were the ones really doing the work, higher than that and they were almost political figures, rather than people who worked there.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't ignore the company mission to cross train employees. Try to not kill your mid-level managers and promote prima donnas to the top.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
