Gain a lot of experience in hospitality, but you'll work hard for it.

Former Employee - Concierge in Laguna Beach, CA

I worked at Montage Laguna Beach part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Beautiful location, most of the staff is friendly, you'll have great stories to tell friends and families for years to come, really good experience working in a luxury hotel environment (front of the house positions), has helped me on my resume.

Cons

Guests are never perfect, some can be downright ridiculous, some managers are horrendous, rules are very strict (dress code, etc.), very long work days and weeks in the summer, not the best pay in the area.

    Pros

    Parking, Meals and sometimes insurance...I was there for three years in Management....Working in the Stewarding department was one of the best ......

    Cons

    H.R. is the worst....High Management I mean upstairs treat you like kids...the test they do every single year...I mean no one cares about the palm trees being called Desi and Lucy...no one ask those questions....No raises and if so there like five cents or ten cents a year if any.....Warnings over the smallest thing...not willing to listen to the staff....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What is there to say it's not like they take it to heart....as long as people apply and guest come they don't really care....

    Good for some short-term cash.

    I worked at Montage Laguna Beach

    Pros

    I worked as a valet for one summer. On average, I was making around $20 an hour, including tips. It was a good cash job, but obviously, there is very little ability for career progression. The best reasons to work there: You need cash for a summer, and you want a LOT of shifts. If you are working as a valet, you will get quite a workout, as well.

    It's an incredible resort with a great atmosphere.

    Cons

    Management can be a little air-headed. The garage is TINY for the amount of volume they receive on very busy days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more feedback to employees and be more hands-on.
