Server and Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Fort Pierce, FL – July 23, 2016
My daily duties here consisted of tending to well over 800 guest a day along with seating them ,removing dishes from tables , assisting them with what ever it was that they needed, and to smile while doing it :). I was also required to gather and place all the utensils and materials needed to set up both lunch and dinner tables in a timed period. During the serving ,resetting and or bussing task we were also required a separate task as well everyday. Weather it was keeping ice inside the soda machine cleaning the runner stations or making sure the whole restaurant(1000 seats total) had water pitchers out and ready it was your daily responsibility. before i was a server i was a steward. There it was my responsibility to have the dishes washed and ready conveyor belt style. This job also had janitorial requirements of keeping the building clean and sanitized
In my opinion the management was poor due to not having enough team members on the floor during events, managers comming and leaving, not being prepared for large groups until they came, and overall planning. However these slight downfalls were enough to motivate me to try harder and to do what needs to be done.

Water Sports and Assistant Bar Manager (Former Employee) – Port Saint Lucie, FL – November 5, 2015
If you're looking to escape the real world, but still work your butt off this is the place! Be mindful- it is a French owned company and ran like one. Things can change at the snap of a finger. Be flexible, open minded, and work hard. It will give you an experience you can't get anywhere else. Its TOUGH, but really rewarding. You meet AMAZING people and make great connections that can further your career outside of club med. I am so thankful I had this opportunity. You can work up to 12 hours a day/ 70 hours a week. Only one day off per week. Pay is low, but you don't pay for living, food, or alcohol. There is a dress code, you MUST follow it.
You work very long hours but it can easily be considered not working by different people's standards. Great job to make connections but management and resort quality will vary greatly from what I hear.
G.E/Waitress (Former Employee) – Port Saint Lucie, FL – April 11, 2015
great friendly enviornment, wonderful management and employees, beautiful facility. It was just a fun place to work in general but you do work long hours and when they go out of season there really isn't any work and they start laying people off
Sales & Marketing (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – January 25, 2015
Had a great 12 years at Club Med and was able to travel to places that I would have never been able to go to. The clubs were pretty primitive when I worked there but that was what Club Med was all about. I worked in many departments and loved all my co-workers. The management was very helpful especially to the "phone" associates who were dealing with the public. Every department I worked in was a fun, professional area to work.
Clinic Assistant (Medical Assistant) (Former Employee) – Club Med – November 1, 2014
This was a very outstanding all inclusive international resort. I learned a lot about different cultures. I was fortunate to work with fine people from other countries and utilize my french speaking skills their. I love being around people and placing smiles on their face so that made me happy indeed.
G.O Baby Club, Dancer, Night Event Coordinator (Current Employee) – Port Saint Lucie, FL – October 26, 2014
Club Med is a high end French resort. I work long days and on get one day off a week, but it has become a lifestyle of mine. I interact with the guests all day, and I am in 4 to 5 shows a week dancing. I help lead the beginning of the night party.
Many things to do from circus stuff to water sports and everything in between.
Child Care (Former Employee) – Sandpiper, Florida – October 23, 2014
I would watch over kids between the ages of 2 and 12. I mostly worked with 4-5 year olds. I would assist the kids in partaking in fun activities, eating, and preforming. I learned how to work with children for long periods of time due to the amount I worked. The hardest part of the job was the long hours, working from 9 am till 10 pm with about 2 hours of break. I enjoyed working with kids and the overall atmosphere that Club Med had. Having fun was part of the job.
Waiter (Former Employee) – port st lucie – September 23, 2014

Traffic Manager - Social Entertainer (Former Employee) – Port Saint Lucie, FL – June 9, 2014
If you are between the age of 21-30 this is a great escape from reality. It's as if your on an Island and nothing else matters. The job of a GO starts the moment you leave the Employee quarters and end when you return. Most day start at 7:30 am and do not end until 10:30 - 11 pm. Of course you have your two meal breaks during the day but you are responsible to wake up early enough for your first meal. You get to interact with the guest and join them for meals. It's a really laid back feel but do not think you are on vacation with activities you must participate in all day you do not have time to relax. From Kids activities to dance shows to hosting poker tournaments to dancing the night away with the guests. Your job is a social entertainer and only objective "is to make the people dreaming" - Lionel Pirotte, CDV.
Room and Board included plus fitness classes and Circus Lessons. Great Experience
Short breaks, only one day off, low pay, and some other things
Professional and friendly workplace with a great staff performing a much needed service for customers.
General Manager (Current Employee) – Woodland Hills, CA – January 16, 2014
A typical day at work started with me setting up the store for the day and making sure everything was clean and stocked. Once we had the store open I would make sure all customer information had been imputed and updated. Throughout the day I would keep inventory stocked while helping customers find exactly what they needed as well as educating them on the product. Before I left the store I would do a full inventory count and would order more if necessary. My staff was just a pleasure to work with, really friendly people who were knowledgeable about the products in the store. The staff and I were always learning new things having to keep up with the advancements in the medical industry. The hardest part of my job was hearing some of our customers personal problems with loved ones and their own medical issues. The only other difficulties were making sure all employees were happy with their schedules while trying to also make sure it didn't interrupt with their school schedules or personal life. Definitely the most satisfaction I receive from working here is helping out customers to find the perfect things to help them with their medical issues. I absolutely loved it when a customer would come back and tell me how much I helped them by educating them on the products and finding them the perfect one.
Was so close to alot of very great resturantes and was a very relaxing inviroment.
Really had no time for a break or even to eat your lunch, just had to push thru the day.
