Jen Ochoa began working at Pechanga five years ago as a casino cocktail server. Last year, she transferred to The Cove serving up slushy and tropical drinks to pool clientele. “I love being outside and interacting with the guests at the pool and cabanas. You do pretty well financially, too, I have to say,” she said as she delivered a margarita to a guest sitting poolside on a recent mid-March sunny day.
“For applicants wanting to work here, show up with a smile and personality,” she recommends. “This is such a people-centric job. Managers want to see you have great work ethic and an upbeat personality. The guests can tell when you’re not all the way invested.”
Positions vary from line level to supervisory and management jobs. Entry level positons at Pechanga start at $11.00 per hour, the California minimum wage, and up.
Pechanga opened its $300 million expansion in March 2018. With the additions came the 4.5-acre Cove pool complex, a 25,000 square foot spa, 68,000 additional square feet of meeting and event space, 568 additional rooms and suites, two new restaurants, and a 2,400-space parking structure.
