great start if you want to get into the hospitality industry. Very popular and well known hotel and resort. Staff is fun and you get to look out at the beautiful ocean

I learned a lot about the hospitality industry. Enjoyed my time working there and everyone there was very friendly. Every department works differently. For instance when i was in AYS your schedule was based on how long you have been in the department. So the people with seniority would get to pick their days and hours.

This company and career taught me not only professional experience, but life lessons with the clientele we interacted with. The company not only values it's guests, but understands your employee are who will provide the excellent service. So they really cater to their employees.
Pros
The culture and company core values
Cons
Work hours, 24 hour 365 days a year.

At the Laguna Cliffs Marriott I had an exceptional work experience. My time there taught me many life lessons about work and life outside of work. I became more responsible, reliable, and more of a leader. A typical day of work entailed setting up for the banquet, serving the guests food, tending to the guests need, and bussing tables. The management was very supportive of the employees, always motivating us to be better people and better employees. The work place was a very fun place to work and all of the employees had a very close, friendly relationship. The employees were also the most enjoyable part of the job. The employees created an environment where everyone was there for each other and everyone would help each other out when they needed it.
Pros
enjoyable workplace, great pay
Cons
sometimes long hours

I enjoyed working at The Ritz Carlton in Dana Point, CA as a pastry cook. I truly learned the elegance and presentation factors of a luxury pastry experience . Loved working off the coast of one of the most beautiful beaches in the world .

I enjoy Golf so this was a perfect place for me to work. The staff and management were very easy to get along with. The customers enjoyed my knowledge of Golf. I was accused of not ringing up a drink but had no way to prove it so I was laid off,unfortunate for me.

The work place locates at the seaside, it has a great view, so everyday I was so excited to go to work. Since we were in the hospitality industry, everyone there is very friendly, we smiled at everyone we met. We had music and free food in the office, so we really had an active work style.

I served guests at the resort pool, delegated tasks, solved problems, developed a professional set of communication skills, and managed specific areas of the pool. I also served guests at weddings and various large company events, and received surveys for being polite and having great service etiquette. The management team was attentive and worked with their employees to maintain a productive work environment, and my co-workers were also attentive and productive. The most difficult aspect of this job was getting time off, but it was a summer job and I knew what to expect. The most enjoyable aspect was meeting people from all around the world, as we had many European exchange student and guest, and I was able to communicate and work with them to provide them with an enjoyable experience.
Pros
Meeting and conversing with people from various backgrounds
Cons
parking
