All the reasons to (not) join Mama*

  • You will be just a number

    At Mama, we trust our employees, we listen to them, we support them and above all we push them to excel every day. A manager at Mama is human, benevolent and always available to the members of the Mama Gang.
  • No one to coach you

    At Mama you can easily evolve if you give yourself the means. Everyone has the right to a chance and is rewarded for the work they do.
  • No teamwork, you are on your own

    At Mama the teams are caring, supportive and motivated. Employees and customers alike contribute to the family atmosphere, which is what drives the Mama Gang members to excel and stay.
  • Strict uniform policy

    At Mama, we work in a slightly offbeat universe and we break the codes of the hotel and restaurant business. There is no judgement, you can come dressed as you like and we are on first-name terms.
  • You won't be able to show your personality

    At Mama, you feel comfortable and above all, yourself, while remaining professional. No matter what position you hold, an employee is listened to and respected. You can bring your own creative touch and you are open to suggestions/ideas that you may have.
  • You won't want to come to work

    At Mama, we work in an atypical, beautiful and no-headache environment. We exchange ideas, we meet different people every day, we please our clients and our teams. We have fun while we work, that's what makes the unique charm of Mama.
  • Once, but not twice

    We are always open to welcoming former members of the Mama Gang. When they come back to Mama they've evolved and grown, that's what makes their richness and ours.
  • Zero benefit with Mama

    Great prices on nights and Mama's food. Very good but affordable health insurance (50% contribution). Help on sustainable mobility (advantageous transport package). Co-optation bonuses. Possibility to work 4 days a week (depending on the position).
