GENERAL MANAGER IN TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE NOW

 

Calling all hospitable, organized, self-starters! 

 

Join our Management Development Program today and you could be running a wedding venue within 6 – 12 months. This proven training program teaches you everything about hosting events from food logistics to staff scheduling, and revenue planning to vendor partnership building. You’ll very quickly learn how to delight your clients, gratify guests, and keep your team happy, motivated, and on task.  

 

With ongoing support from our General Manager network, our dedicated training group, and our centralized HR, accounting, and marketing departments, you’ll be set up to succeed. As hospitality enthusiasts, it’s our job to make people smile. We lift each other up, collaborate, and grow together.

 

You’ll love the competitive pay; favorable bonus plan; PTO; paid holidays; sick leave; medical, dental, vision, accident and life insurance; a company funded health reimbursement account; and our 401(k) with company match. 

 

Established in 1986, we’re still growing! We have stunning venues across the states and are looking to add more. When you join our team, you’ll be assigned at the Moraga, CA training venue, as you progress, we’ll discuss which venue(s) are the right fit for you long-term in terms of location and needs (with relocation expenses happily covered, if needed).

 

Can you?

  1. Commit to your own success by following the training plan, asking for help when needed, and stepping up to show-off your expertise
  2. Understand and attain your venue’s financial goals
  3. Strengthen the team you join by supporting the general manager and encouraging the onsite event, culinary, sales, and planning crew members through interviewing, hiring, training, and coaching
  4. Adhere to our brand values and style by exemplifying our culture to your team, clients, guests, and all visitors to your venue
  5. Work a hospitality schedule that typically requires weekend working and long evenings (balanced with late starts and weekday time off)

Are you?

  • Familiar with hospitality – perhaps you’ve worked in a restaurant, bar, hotel, or event venue before and can transfer your skills
  • Happiest among people – hospitality demands that you’re always working to please the customer and interruptions come as standard
  • Keen to lead – and delegate, teach, coach, and hold others accountable.
  • Organized – time management is a crucial skill and being able to perform well in a fast-paced environment is a must
  • Computer literate – Outlook, Word and Excel should be your friends

We’re powered by people. Enthusiastic, ingenious, joyful people who care about every client’s happiness. We’ve created a collaborative culture which helps us all succeed together. We want to help you learn and when we see an area to improve, we acknowledge, correct, and move on. Training to become a general manager is a big commitment. You’re giving your time, your energy, and your future to us, so we promise to treat you with respect, help you develop and make plenty of time for fun along the way.
