Being a Team Leader was by far the most invaluable experience of my career! I was given the opportunity to learn several different areas of rooms operation by working alongside various managers and coworkers. My time in the Team Leader program was very humbling because it taught me a lot about hard work and organization.

Caroline Hayworth

The Team Leader program was eye-opening and rewarding in so many ways. Most importantly, it pointed me in the direction of a career path that I would never have seen myself in.  I am thankful I was presented with many different roles, work environments and challenges that helped to shape my career and management skills. It is rare to find an opportunity like this for new graduates, especially at a world-class golf resort.

I highly recommend the Team Leader program! It was the perfect opportunity for me to have a full-time management position straight out of college. Although it was one of the biggest challenges I’ve faced, it was also the most rewarding and fruitful job I have ever had. I am now in Human Resources, but the exposure to operations experience was one of the keys to my success with Pebble Beach Company.

I started as an hourly supervisor at The Inn Front Desk. Eleven years and three promotions later, the feeling of wanting to be back at work the next day, help guests and solve problems hasn’t left me.

Mekayla Wood

Pèppoli Restaurant Assistant Manager

As a recent college graduate I seized the opportunity to join the Team Leader program, and it was through this experience that I fell in love with the hospitality industry. As a Team Leader I was able to develop not only hospitality skills, but interpersonal skills as well. Without the incredible support and mentorship that the program provided, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

The Team Leader program gave me the opportunity to find my niche in the hospitality industry.  I can still remember my first day working at the front desk at The Lodge at Pebble Beach, and knowing it was the place I wanted to be.  My advice to future Team Leaders would be to look at each day as a “working interview” and ask as many questions as you can.  Pebble Beach is a special place and the things you learn in this program will stay with you for life.
