About Our Culture
Terranea is a unique workplace culture where individuals can build their careers, provide for their families and pursue their individual dreams while creating a distinctive experience for our guests. Terranea is unique and special, unlike any other. Since we opened our doors in 2009, Terranea has diligently worked to earn a reputation as both a premier Southern California resort that takes care of its guests and an excellent employer that provides a rewarding work environment for employees.
"I'm Terranea's biggest fan. I'm its biggest cheerleader. I love it so much here, and I'm so privileged and honored to work here. I don't take a day for granted that I get to come here and do my job and be a part of this place."
We celebrate the individual and work hard to create an environment that gives each associate a sense of personal value. Since opening in 2009, we have celebrated over 1000+ promotion and transfer opportunities as associates grow into new roles, take on new responsibilities and continue building their careers – and we eagerly look forward to the opportunities ahead.
"The fact that your boss tells you they see something in you, and they say, ‘You're gonna get promoted,’ you know, is really exciting. And knowing that you can be with a company for so many years and they give you that opportunity to grow, it motivates you do even do better and come to work every day with a smile."
We work hard to create a sustainable culture of passionate, refreshing and heartfelt service. Taking care of people has always been a hallmark of Terranea, whether it’s for our valued guests or trusted associates. It’s a commitment from which we have never wavered – and never will.
"Terranea has really given me the experience to learn a little bit about everything. Cross-training here at Terranea has been a fabulous experience for me. Not only has it enabled me to grow here professionally, but also grow in my-- personal life as well."
We value family, work-life balance and community. We seek to build a strong and diverse culture, one in which our recruitment policies, diverse workforce, in-house training programs, and inclusive environment reflect a workplace in which we all can be proud.
"As a champion of opportunities and protections for women, minorities and all individuals for my entire career, I am very proud of what my friends and fellow associates have accomplished – for themselves, for their families and for their futures."
- Terri Haack, President, Terranea
"If I had a friend or family that was looking to have a career in hospitality I would absolutely recommend Terranea. The leadership here really takes associates under their wings and helps guide them and train them in whatever department they're looking to go into."
