Hostess/ Food Runner (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – July 1, 2013
I would start off my day by setting up my work station. Making sure all the materials that were needed for the day were in place. I also made sure all reservations for the day were all confirmed. Then, I would provide appropriate seating arrangements for the servers of the day. When all pre-shift duties were done, the crew of the day would gather up in the kitchen to have our meeting. In our meeting managers would go over what was going on around the hotel and what we would be expecting for the day. The hardest part was that the expectations were not always met. Although they were not always met, the staff was always prepared. Which leads to the most enjoyable part of the job, we all liked to work together as a family and help one another out.
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – May 22, 2013
A typical day at the Hotel Valley Ho included greeting new and return guests, catering to their specific needs and requests, getting them the right room, offering discounts and upgrades when possible, and ultimately providing top-notch quality service. I learned how to communicate with people on a professional and personal manner. I also learned how to be a part of a productive team. Both my managers and co-workers were excellent. Managers went out of their way to teach instead of simply demanding and were always open to suggestions. The hardest part of the job was having to deal with unsatisfied guests. Try as you might, you can't make everyone happy. Most enjoyable part was hearing how amazing a guest's stay was with us.
great staff, everyone is very knowledgable and helpful. free lunches, full half hour breaks, and an always positive and up-beat work environment
sometimes got very hectic with low numbers of staff.
