    I worked at Island Hotel Newport Beach part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people who work here and very genuine & kind. Free meals in cafeteria. Laundry washes your uniforms for you. Employee discounts.

    Cons

    Upper management gives you a big speech at your orientation about how much they care about you. Fairly soon you realize you are really just a dollar sign. It is Irvine Company after all.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and actually SHOW you care. Give them a reason to want to strive to do better. Respect is a two way street.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Island Hotel Newport Beach (Newport Beach, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The manager at the times very nice, a little intimidating at first but was obviously very passionate about his job and made me excited. There were two managers present the majority of the time.
