Server (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – May 14, 2018
The customer is Always Right. there is no getting around that ever. There are a lot of different departments and everyone contributes to make the "experience" the best for the guests. Depends where you work the job could get heavy at times. serving in restaurants is hard at times when there are high volumes of guests. Management tends to change a lot All the time. Some guests are a pleasure to serve and they make your hard work very worth it. Their gratitude tends to make you want to be there and put more effort.
Cook III (Current Employee) – Pasadena, CA – April 23, 2018
Working at this place will teach you from the very basics, of your culinary career to the most stressful part of dealing with all kind of circumstances, lack of equipment , and old Facilities.
With the right mindset this is a great place to develop professionally , there is no such thing as easy job , In my opinion this place is challenging in its own way and its not necessary bad , of course there are thing that can always be better.
Line cook (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – March 7, 2018
They tend to not appreciate their workers thus the reason why many leave. Seniority plays a huge role in this company and at times gets in the way of new workers from moving up and building a career in the company.
Guest Service Agent (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – February 23, 2018
Hotel life is pretty much all work... and hardly any place. If you work at a hotel, especially this one, you can kiss your personal life good bye. Benefits and pay were great. But whats good with that if you can't spend it with family. Some times you work 10 days straight. WTH!!! Management is a joke. Always looking to place the blame on somebody or on another department.
free lunch. free parking. Benefits, pay
no life, work work work, stress, stress, stress. Workers and managers gossip. Scream at employees
Cook 3 (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – February 20, 2018
Being a cook 3 isn't really what you think it was there was a lot more to it than just the actual cook 3 I had to prep and be on the line with no or little time I also was at the fry station and saute especially when needed. Compensation was great for cook 3 but with the job we did I believe promotion wise in the kitchen was just unfair.
Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 30, 2018
The culture here is ridiculous. Human Resources acts like they own the place and bother the way everyone works. The HR Manager would walk around taking notes on employees that do not attire to their 'standards', making people feeling paranoid and on their toes at all times. Did I mention that they set ridiculous unachievable goals?
People who stood their ground and speak up would not last long. They only want sheeps working here. Everyone smiles and acts like nothing is happening because they are afraid to lose their job/benefits. It's kinda sad, really... They are way too deep in their own behind to think they would get a five star/five diamond with this kind of environment.
LINE COOK (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 10, 2017
I was a line cook for the banquets and I thought it was really cool! The chefs there are so smart and talented I got to learn so much from each and every single one of them. I got hands on experience and got to learn more than food. I got to learn about history, technique and everything in between!
Temporary Income Auditor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 22, 2017
The Langham Place is a diversified work place of employees from all over the world. The work ethnic and work environment is very balanced in where you feel appreciated for a job well done. The Langham Place recognizes employees hard work. Also they contribute their time and efforts to the homeless community in NYC but employees working there.
Definitely Not a Permanent type job. Too stressful

Unsanitary working conditions, bad odors, rotting walls and carpet. Poor working conditions, rodents, flies sticky counters in cafeteria, Bad food, too many carbs, dirty oiled fried foods, fruits flies everywhere and loud chaotic environment made it hard to concentrate or enjoy the job.
poor stressful working conditions, upper management is rude and not connected.
