Pros: insurance, uniforms cleaned and provided, elegant atomosphere
Cons: unsure direction of the hotel due to the recent switch to mandarin oriental
I worked for the Mandarin Oriental for six months now, and most of my co workers are awesome, the management is improving, but could still need a little work. A typical day at work would be in one of the three areas I am cross trained in, including in room dining, restaurant, and banquets. Usually I start the day by preparing for what is to come and setting myself up for success, this is the most important part...making sure tables are up to standard, restocking, reading over the vips and hotel occupancy summary. The hardest part of this job would be not being provided the proper materials to work with and having to search them out. The easiest part would be giving excellent and memorable service to the guest.
