An internship in an exceptional palace, the George V
Welcome to the heart of the Golden Triangle in Paris, a stone's throw from the Champs-Elysées. It is here, in the mythical Four Seasons Hotel George V, that Mehdi El Mouttacil completes his 3rd year Bachelor internship at the Luxury Hotelschool. Palace since 2011, the George V has 244 luxurious rooms and suites. It is also the first Palace to offer three Michelin-starred restaurants: Le Cinque*** (Christian Le Squer), Le George* (Simone Zanoni) and L'Orangerie (Alan Taudon).
“The standing of the establishment is exceptional”, testifies Mehdi. “It has considerable resources, including 650 employees who work with immense professionalism and in a warm family atmosphere. Teams that I had the chance to join as early as mid-April in the Reception Department. Each department has a specific role and everything is beautifully orchestrated. And when it is necessary, on an exceptional basis, to support an event or a particular setting up, all the services of the hotel are mobilized in concert.”
After two first experiences of internships at the beginning of his course at the Luxury Hotelschool (*), Mehdi feels that he has “ascended the steps of excellence, always in luxury. At George V, the reception procedures are very fine, well established. I feel very well supervised and free at the same time, like the 'Employee Stories' system which gives all employees the opportunity to order and offer a gift to customers according to their expectations or tastes”.
“I particularly appreciate the responsibilities I am given for cash management, where I have to check all invoices and credit limits on a daily basis.”
