Meet Arturo Corres; hardworking, takes charge and extremely reliable. Arturo has been pumping out clean dishes and keeping the kitchen running at the Portola Hotel & Spa in Monterey, California for the past 22 years. He joined the team as an entry level Dishwasher and within a few years, his outstanding performance and high standards for cleanliness showed in every task he was assigned. Arturo was quickly promoted to Dishwashing Supervisor, a job he takes great pride in, every single day.
Organization and staff management are important to Arturo, especially when he and his team are supplying glassware, china, utensils, pots and pans to the Hotel’s two bustling restaurants and onsite banquet events throughout the property. Arturo is the hub of the Kitchen Department and is not afraid to step in and assist in his fellow team members; in fact he is known to help with plating and numerous other kitchen duties, always with a smile. When the Hotel has a plated dinner for over 750+ people, Arturo often joins the line and never leaves until the last plate is plated, then quickly returns to his cleaning station.
