I worked at Malibu Beach Inn part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Gorgeous beach
Wonderful coworkers
Famous clientele
Occasional large tips

Cons

Management unaware of incompetent supervisors
Fire employees and don't dislose reason
Punished hostess for relationship with chef; chef gets promoted

Advice to Management

Spend time in the restaurant and see your supervisors in action. They panic under pressure and can't resolve conflict. Train hostesses instead of pairing them with a server to learn. Stop the favoritism, it's disgusting.

    Pros

    Incredible location to call "your office", competitive benefits package, a mostly well-mannered clientele, and ability to maintain a work-life balance.

    Cons

    This certainly isn't a dealbreaker, but during my time there the employee meals were quite unhealthy. Also, the kitchen is too small to handle both, the dining room and in-room dining capacity.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to look into expansion of kitchen area, and healthier meals for employees. Furthermore, something certainly needs to be done about the paper thin walls. Finally, perhaps it's time to revisit the uniforms.

    I worked at Malibu Beach Inn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mostly great clientele. However, some where untitled, but you were rarely undertipped or worked late hours. Very beautiful atmosphere.

    Cons

    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.
