Awesome company with great values

Server (Former Employee)
Santa Cruz, CA

ProsThe people that Joie de Vivre attract as employees make the experience. They are always upbeat and management looks for ways to improve the experience for them

ConsAs with most hotels there are a ton of seasonal positions, so turnover is extremely fast paced and makes it difficult to acquire full time positions

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

    Lacks Management

    (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Joie de Vivre full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Most staff are very nice. Cons: Managers are amateurs. No mentoring, training, succession planning, or even reviews. Good employees either get lost in the shuffle… Advice to Senior Management: Hire stronger managers or take the time to train managers to be effective. Hold them accountable for their departments. Do not accept sub standard managers… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
