I worked there for 3 years. In beginning it was fun and the management was great with the stuff and very professional. Now they changed floor management and they don't act professionally. They treat stuff in a bad way.

There is no room to grow there. They won't allow you to grow in company
Pros
Fun environment
Cons
Unprofessional management. No job security.

Large and unique venue. Hosted many local and international events.
A typical day could entail anything. Preparation was key.

Some of management was lack lustre but served their purpose.

Keeping staff motivated and following up on issues that arose was the hardest part.


The most enjoyable part was everything came together on a massive event with thousands of guests.


Met some very high profile clientele and a few eccentrics as well.

Overall, it was a lot of fun.
Pros
One of a kind venue where anything could happen.
Cons
Anything could happen. Very long working hours.

I worked as a waitress for Shimmy Beach Club, every day was an exciting new day, meeting all kinds of people and enjoying the culture of the restaurant's food, social environment, and live music.

I learned how to be a professional as it was highly required for an upmarket restaurant like Shimmy Beach Club, I learned how to be consistent, on time and friendly with customers providing great services.


There were all kinds of culture vibes and gatherings, always something new to look forward to and be a part of. I appreciated the professional setup, uniform and spectacular menu's provided for great entertainment. I had the pleasure to meet a few celebrities.


The hardest part of the job was the overflow but I always managed to keep it under control and pushed myself to think ahead and avoid any problematic issues so I could provide great services and be remembered.


The part I enjoyed most was meeting wonderful people, experiencing the enjoyment of live music and shows and I very much enjoyed the money I made due to hard work.
Pros
Free food
Cons

After being in the hospitality environment, I can qualify Shimmy Beach Club as a place I learn to save and work with more than 100 people at the same time. I've learn to communicate and to handle different people, even tho the hardest days are on the busy summer nights, fun is always at the rendezvous.
Learn about different culture, being customers related has open opportunity to meet new people.

Hospitality is one of the environment where management is hard to handle but having a knowledge in the management sector has helped me to endure the pressure.

I can be only thankful to this place.
