Here is what Khalil A. from the St. Louis Magnolia Hotel says about being a Cook. “My. Experience at the Magnolia Hotel in St. Louis as an employee has been on eof the best opportunities I have had in career thus far. We have some of the best benefits I have experienced in the downtown area. The work environment has a family oriented feel even if there is a disagreement, the job gets accomplished and the issue always gets resolved in a timely manner. The most important characteristic to me is the amount of respect that everybody has for one another. It is surreal from the GM to Room Attendant; everybody is respectful toward one another.”
