DEMI CHEF DE PARTIE (Former Employee) –  Sandpiper, FLSeptember 22, 2018
Its a great place to work if you work in any department other than the kitchen. As a part of the kitchen staff you work so much all you have time to do is your job. You dont get to socialize with other departments unless you insert yourself and even then most times they are cliqued up. There is a college feel in the ployee building where theres drinking and partying a lot.

The kitchen has poor management and the food choices are sub par, not at all what you would expect to come out of the club med brand. There is no creativity and/or effort with the menu and sometimes the management is too rigid to allow any sort of change.
Pros
Weekly housekeeping, room and board, discount on on-site activities, discount at store and spa, access to the gym and workout classes
Cons
One day off, poor managment, you have to pay for the housekeeping you didbt even ask for.

Best. Job. Ever. (until you know its time to go)
ClubMed Children's Club Counselor (Former Employee) –  Port Saint Lucie, FLSeptember 5, 2018
This place is amazing. High level hospitality industry but the pace is great; the more things going on, the more fun you have. For a young, wandering soul, it is a place where you can build yourself into whatever you want, push your boundaries to try new things, all while being cheered on by management. The more new things you try, the better you will like it. That being said, it is long, long hours (14+ every day with only 1 day off per week), and guests can find you and ask you for things at any time, day or night, so if quiet privacy is what you want, this is probably not for you.
Pros
Free food, free fun, lifelong friendships!
Cons
No rest, low pay

Fun but extremely stressful
BARTENDER (Former Employee) –  Florida, CaribbeanJuly 24, 2018
You live for free, eat for free, drink and party for free (which is actually encouraged) on the property, but the compensation is about $800-$1,000 per month depending on how much overtime you work. I was constantly working 60+ hours a week and my department manager would conveniently 'lose' our time sheets and we got paid the minimum for the month. After working 1 year at one of the North American resorts, they consider transfers to other villages all around the world which is pretty cool, so if you're in it for the travel, it's a good job if you can handle the working hours. But unless you plan to make Club Med your career, you will be left with an empty bank account whenever you leave.

Experince en tant que GO ( stagiaire )
GO ( Gentil Organisateur ) - Stage à temps plein (Former Employee) –  Albion - La plantation d'AlbionMay 19, 2018
Mon expérience au seins de cette entreprise était très agréable , l'une des meilleures je dirai . Les conditions de travail ne sont pas horrible comparé à ailleurs , le personnel est bien traité , nourrit et même logé pour certains .

Beaucoup de travail requis en terme d'activité , d'organisation . Une présence totale pour les clients , toujours à les accompagner .
Peu de temps pour soit même .

Cependant très bonne ambiance malgré les rivalités , quelques querelles au seins du groupe de salarié ( en particulier chez les GO ) .

Superbe approche avec les clients car nous somme justement comme les 'amis des clients " , toujours là a essayé de faire passer le temps , leur trouver des activités a faire et même déjeuner et dîner avec eux .

Store Clerk (Part-Time) (Former Employee) –  Port Saint Lucie, FLMay 3, 2018
It was a pretty fun job working at the golf shop. The members of the club are extremely nice. Some guest are rude and some are nice. You have to open up the store at 6:45 in the morning. Employees are nice. Only problem i had was that they started to cut my hours and the manager had some favoritism.

Good job; not great compensation
Reservation Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZMarch 13, 2018
Loved the culture and product but couldn't make much money. Enjoyed benefits of travel to several clubs all over the world and stayed for free. I would suggest for the young.

Great communication with guests
Excursions French Translator (Current Employee) –  Port Saint Lucie, FLDecember 19, 2017
Being the main source of information for French speaking guests was quite gratifying. As a long time resident of Port St Lucie, I was able to inform and assist guests with their excursions, focusing on the local area as well as Miami and Orlando.
The most enjoyable part of the job was to help the guests choose their excursions, translate for them regarding all aspects of their vacation and provide them with an above and beyond customer service experience.
A typical day at work consisted of welcoming all the guests, informing them of all the excursions and rates. Assisting with the translation of website, responding to all inquiries, setting up the transportation, contacting guides, airboat captain, boat rides. Staying up to date on all the events in the area as well as translation of all material relevant to the excursions office. Accounting of all sales, daily reports, maintaining all information on an excel spreadsheet used for all sales, communications with guests and contractors. I was also responsible for the training of new employees with a strong emphasis on organization and excellent customer service skills. Multitasking was a key element of the job as well as anticipating all the guests desires.
The hardest part of the job was the numerous changes in ownership of the excursions office which created a lack of stability.
Pros
French speaking, using my language as an asset
Cons
No healthcare, 401k ...

Amazing place to work to learn customer service and excel in your field
Chief of SCUBA (Former Employee) –  Provodenciales, Turks & caicosNovember 6, 2017
The job hours were long and fairly structured. It provided a safe environment in a foreign country. Day time duties began at 7 a.m., organizing guests on the dive adventure, with a break for lunch at 1 p.m.
The afternoons were for maintaining equipment, teaching & education.
And the evening was for socializing with guests, which was mandatory.
The hardest part of the job was managing young men in a cultural setting that promoted alcohol and flirting.
It was lovely meeting people from all facets of life and the world. I am still friends with many of them even after ten years.
Pros
housing, food, diving every day
Cons
often the hours were 7 a.m. until 1 a.m.

Fun place for summer
Bartender (Former Employee) –  La Palmyre Atlantique, Val Thorens.October 16, 2017
Club Med is a very fun hotel to work for in the summer time if you can work by the beach. I worked in the French alps as well but people seem to be less friendly.
Over all it’s a good experience if one likes to travel.
Pros
Easy to travel
Cons
Bad management

Fun Fun Fun this was the most fun I've ever had while working. The hours are long but job is mostly conversing with guests. The resort is made by the workers, anything a guest needs any staff should be able to help them.
