Housekeeper (Former Employee), Woodbridge, VA – July 23, 2014
Pros: workers were allowed free breakfast. guests as well as team members were very pleasent.
Arriving bright and early to review assigned rooms and tasks.10 minutes after arrival, I would proceed to designated floor/area to begin tasks. Management/supervisors remained close by to ensure tasks were completed in a timely, organized manner. Co-workers remained pleasant and respectful; always willing to help peers and eager to advise. The job was – more... not hard at all in my opinion. The easiest part of the job was becoming a valuable team member to my company. – less
Human Resources Manager (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZ – July 22, 2014
Pros: free lunch, great health benefits
This hotel had a remodel and looks fantastic. There are some things in all the departments that I'm sure could improve, but from my understanding it's doing great. People were nice to me, and the staff were great.
A very fun place to work in you get to deal with different kind of people.
Housekeeper (Former Employee), Brownsville, Tx – July 21, 2014
A typical day at work for me was actually exciting because when you do something in a good mood and think positive everything seems fine. Even if the job was somewhat tiring I really enjoyed working for this company I don't regret nothing I learned a lot. I am know seeking to better myself that is why I am looking for a medical assistant job or something – more... related. – less
Housekeeper (Current Employee), North Charleston, SC – July 21, 2014
Pros: when we have free lunch
Cons: having to work holidays
On a typical day i would get 18 rooms. I learned that you can't mess anything when make the bed and changing sheets.The management is kind of poor they really don't care too much for their employees. My co-workers are great everyone gets along. The hardest part of my job would be having to say bye at the end of the shift. I enjoy when the customers – more... tell you how good you clean their room. – less
Very poor communication and lack of concern for employees.
Front Desk/Housekeeping (Former Employee), Redding, CA – July 17, 2014
Pros: paying job
Cons: pay, no raises, vacation, sick pay etc.
Management don't try and make things better or easier for the employees to get their job done. Management expects way to much from a housekeeper on the very little supplies they have to get the job done.
Reservation/Guest Service Manager (Former Employee), Longboat Key, FL – July 17, 2014
This particular hotel was the absolute best place to work. The employer and owner of this property truly cared about their staff members and the product we were selling. If this property had not been sold and turned into Condos, I could guarantee that most if not all of the original staff would still be there.
Conference Center Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Mount Pleasant Mi – July 17, 2014
Setting up meeting rooms to suit customer needs according to contracts. Making adjustments including but not limited to counts, equipment, and changes in food service. Then breaking down and resetting for the next day. I enjoyed working with my co-workers and the interaction with guests. Every day was a new challenge.
Housekeeper (Former Employee), West Yellowstone, MT – July 16, 2014
Pros: humbling experience
Cons: list too large to finish, under paid salary, people would call in sick often
A typical day at work involves a list few can compete accurately, fairly, with precision and with lunch break. Manager of department at time I was employed did their best to help every employee understand their jobs and the times necessary to complete their list. I learned that housekeeping is the roots of any hotel and that employees in this department – more... should get paid the highest salary since they are responsible for the rooms. Hardest part of the job was actually completing a list one knew they could never finish in the timely fashion required everyday.
Most enjoyable part of the job was lunch...:) and going home. – less
A great place to experience every angle of hotel guest customer service from food to hospitality to hr
