    Pros

    It is a spa so the perks of receiving discounted services is pretty much it.

    Cons

    1. Inconsistent scheduling after you've provided your availability.
    2. Never any follow up to your questions.
    3. Commission structure (for boutique products sold) never fully explained.
    4. Commission only received once out of 3 months worth earned.
    5. Management extremely unqualified and avoids accountability. Often blames staff for issues not within staff's control.
    6. Blatant favoritism
    7. Enrollment for benefits offered only within first 60 days of your hire date.
    8. Communication and consistency is absolutely non existent between management and employees.
    9. Provides guests with conflicting information often leading to disappointing experiences.
    10. Disorganized with confidential paperwork.
    11. Resistant against holding staff meetings and when done, only covers basic topics such as the locations working hours and does not encourage staff engagement.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize your real employees. You may have wonderful employees who can help your business grow substantially because they are more qualified than the figure heads you currently have in place.

    Your turnover would drastically decrease if you empowered your team and led by example.

    Stop misleading the guests who spend money for a luxurious pampering experience by exposing them to unhygienic practices.

    I worked at Mirbeau Inn & Spa full-time

    Pros

    The property itself is amazing, though it is rapidly approaching the need for serious renovation.

    Cons

    Positions are grossly under paid for the quality of work they want. The owners, particularly the wife, treat the staff despicably.

    Pros

    Good vacation time.
    Spa & F&B perks.
    Property managers (especially Skaneateles) are wonderful.
    Beautiful grounds and atmosphere.

    Cons

    The owners are selfish and wretched.
    Extremely poor communication from the owners and management team.
    Owners, CEO and Partner are prone to selfish and petty bickering, finger-pointing, and are just plain unreasonable.

    Advice to Management

    With the exception of rooms/reservations in the management team, step back and let the managers and employees do their jobs.

    I worked at Mirbeau Inn & Spa full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get 50% off at the spa

    Cons

    Employees are overworked and underappreciated.
    Give it all you've got and they still want more.
    Apply for part-time, that's too bad, full-time for you.
    Ask for a day off? They will "lose" the request.
    Don't expect a Thank-You for anything ever.
    Management team has more drama than the FOH and BOH combined.
    No amount of money is worth the headache

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees and you would be able to keep them.

    Pros

    - One of the most beautiful places in the area.
    - creativity is welcome. Since everyday feels like groundhogs day, there is always opportunity to try anything again, and again, and again.....
    - the turnover of management is far beyond the industry standard of sky high, leaving lots of room to do as little as possible without being corrected.

    Cons

    The owners have created a beautiful retreat but still don't seem to know what exactly they are looking for, or how to run it. Sadly, the place gets run but a steady flow of GM-of-the-month goofs who can't seem to ever quite get it right.

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy your brief time there, don't give it too much effort as there is no great reward. Do the bare minimum and don't put too much care or thought into your work.
