I worked at Malibu Beach Inn full-time (More than a year)
Mostly great clientele. However, some where untitled, but you were rarely undertipped or worked late hours. Very beautiful atmosphere.
Once the property sold to Mani Brothers, the establishment lost its "come one come all" charm. There was a lot of micromanagement and unqualified staff hired to coach staff who was already familiar with the quirks of the establishment.
Advice to Management
The benefits and everything were great. However, maybe you should look within for leadership on the dining from. The property is very unique. You aren't running a BOA or Mastro's. There are many components that only senior staff know how to handle, yet are discouraged by management.
I applied through other source. I interviewed at Malibu Beach Inn.
I met with the Human Resources manager, the hotel general manager and the restaurant manager. I was asked very minimal questions but noticed there were several negative comments made about current employees that i would be working with. That should have been the first red flag.
there was no negotiation.
