Excellent work environment sufficient for self improvement.
Front Desk Manager (Current Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – February 22, 2016
Great job in which I have learned many, many life long skills that I will be utilizing in my day to day life as well as my professional career. I have made many lasting impressions on guests staying with us to the point of them being excited to see me upon their return to our property. I have gained many different networking options through our guests within multiple different fields of work.
flexible schedule, reasonable work environment, great team to work with
no benefits, management changed frequently, terrible owners
I began my journey with Hyatt in 1996, where I started out as an on-call banquet server..I bartended as well when the need arose.. after six months time there, I became a full time banquet employee..my responsibilities grew as well as myself.. I was recognized by my peers as an ALLSTAR, and after two years I became a banquet lead with greater responsibilities that included, PAYROLL, staffing, sceduling, ordereing and even interviewing and hiring of new associates..
My time with Hyatt came to an end in 2015, when I moved home because of family matters,,
I was born and raised here in Toledo/Maumee..
free lunches, free rooms with Hyatt all around the World!!, free dry cleaning, and an excellent benefit package!!!!!
Hyatt offers opportunities for growth and development in numerous areas for employees in all departments. Hyatt has enhanced my abilities to be an effective leader and team player. Throughout my career at Hyatt, I have been able to utilize their training modules and classes to become more knowledgeable about liquors, beer and wine and appropriate food pairings. Due to the high volume of business, year round, I have been able to hone in on my ability to multi-task and create long lasting memories and relationships with our guests, regular and transient. Hyatt's dedication to excellence has encouraged all of their employees to go above and beyond to create "wow factors," which will forever be instilled in my dedication to excellence in future endeavors.
Increased knowledge and benefits
lack of communication among management and employee
The Hyatt promotes a good work culture which is nice in the beginning. The longer you work there, the more you start to see flaws with the company and how they only promote those that are in good with management.
Dealing with customers on a daily basis is exhausting and rarely rewarding as you get little to no thanks for the hard work that you do behind the scenes (again, unless you are popular or have connections to management)
There are opportunities for cross-training which can be hard to do if the hotel is short staffed or busy.
Banquets Food Runner (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – February 29, 2016
Outstanding workplace, great opportunity, benefits, amazing hospitality I've learned that patience is the key Management are understanding and with you threw your career Co-workers from other departments help you. Hardest part is giving up on your team members enjoyable part messing up, or something going wrong, but sticking together and pulling threw.
Event Service Captain (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 7, 2016
A typical day at work is busy, fun, interactive. If I've learned anything at working here it is to never take things too seriously, do what you know and do it well, and focus on whats important. Being apart of the management team you will always come across difficult days, but there will always be tomorrow to have a fresh start at something better. I would say the hardest part of my job is the long hours of dedication that i put in weekly. But i find it very fulfilling to see someone happy and being apart of making that happen.
Server assistant Vu Restaurant (Former Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – February 9, 2016
It was a good place to work. You make decent money and the benefits are good. I've learned not to take things personal and always focus on your work and maintain a relationship with your co-workers but they do not have to be your best fried. Management was sometimes slow with information to give to us but all in all they were good with working with their employees. The hardest part of the job was being stable under pressure and I enjoyed the benefits.
Free lunch, good discount
Short breaks, really long shifts with physical labor
Hyatt can be a fun place to work but also is a productive company.
Guest Service Agent/PBX Operator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 26, 2016
I enjoy working at Hyatt Regency because they do care about the employees and their advancement with the company. There are no typical days at work which to me is a good thing because your always learning something new which makes it enjoyable to be there. I enjoy my co-workers and helping the guest in anyway that I can. There really is no hard part and the most enjoyable part of the job is the paycheck.
Free meals for all shifts, group outings and the recognition you get from management and co-workers.
Finance Clerk (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – February 24, 2016
Management is great, they teach us how to become leaders, they encourage us to learn and grow in any areas of our lives. I've had 3 positions within this hotel, each job has given me an understanding of why my position is important. We have an environment of care, and it is truly reflected in my coworkers, because not only do we take care of each other, we also take care of our hotel guests.
supervisor (Former Employee) – Huntington Beach, CA – March 27, 2016
Since I was considered a supervisor, I supervised the work of my bellstand department. Oversaw their check ins and checkouts, received calls from guests needing bell service, managing the front drive with valet, receiving calls from associates needing luggage to be sent up to the room, handling misplaced luggage. I learned to work as a team and to do basic staff scheduling. Management was awesome and was readily available whenever we needed them. They were not afraid to get some of the work done when there was a lag in the service. Co-workers were extremely fun to be around, and although I was only there for a brief time, they made me feel welcome and a part of the team. Hardest part of the job was actually having to leave. I was seasonal and there was no job for me after the season. The most enjoyable aspect of the job had to be interacting with the guests and the staff in my department.
Management Trainee (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – November 19, 2015
When I start my training in Hyatt it is a typical work with professionals that have their passion in hospitality industry, especially the management they ensure that the employees benefits are monitored and implemented. I've learn to be more attentive, flexible, self-reliable, enhance my patience and develop my skills in handling guests complains. The most challenging part of my training was adjusting myself to the place and it was very hard to understand how the local speak because they are slang. The hardest part of my training is transferring to banquets, it is my first time to do banquets. I used to have interactions with guests but being in banquets is a fun experience because it help me to become flexible in my chosen field.
Sales associate (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – November 12, 2015
Fun work place with very friendly employees and management that will work to ensure your success and satisfaction. Computer skills are required but the training class prepares every sales associate for the challenges that will be faced on the phones. The most difficult part of this job is meeting requirements for call times, as guests set the pace and control the length of conversations. There are many benefits to working for Hyatt Reservation Center, such as access to the free gym, game room, and pay incentives.The only downsides to working there are the lack of mobility during shifts and occasional callers that are not interested in booking hotel rooms.
pay incentives, access to free gym, free game room, very pleasant environment
Good money/benefits, exceptionally poor mgmt, felt unsafe at work
Bartender/Server (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 17, 2016
Working at Big Bar was a challenge. Made $$ & good benefits but mgmt is corporate, clueless & never had your back. Mgmt kowtows the guests to the point of over-entitlement. The renovations made the bar even less functional than it was previously. If your dept is in the Union, good luck getting any requested days off; the seniors couldn't care less about you and most of them are super slow & terrible at their jobs. Almost had to quit college because they didn't want to work with my schedule. Near the end of my employment, the bar was getting an influx of young, rowdy rifraff on the weekends that would staredown their rivals & start fistfights & act like they were at a trashy nightclub. I expressed my concerns to mgmt & HR, but ultimately had to quit because I felt unsafe at work. Happy to be gone from there!
Free lunch, good benefits
incompetent mgmt, union woes, stressful environment
Awesome place for self starters, multi-taskers, and those who enjoy working independently. heavily service based position
Regency Club Concierge (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – September 2, 2016
A typical day at work can be very busy, there is a lot of multitasking involved in this position. you work independently most of the time. Management gives you a lot of space. you might see them once a day. You barely see your co-workers. The hardest part of the job would be effectively prioritizing; you wear a lot of hats in this position. it is manageable, but can be difficult. The most enjoyable part of the job is the freedom tomanage a space independently. Its refreshing to have managements trust in that way. you also interact very closely with guests, and have lots of opportunities to make a real impact during their stay.
no micromanaging, lots of guest recognition, competaive pay (compared to other hotel service positions)
Intern, Front Desk (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – August 6, 2016
I recently interned at the Hyatt Place in Flushing, NY. A typical day at this hotel was very slow paste. I would come in the mornings that I was scheduled to and complete the required intern tasks. Although it was a great experience which I greatly appreciated, I did not learn as much as I hoped. The other interns as well as gallery hosts were very nice and took the time out to help us (interns) with any possible duties that would be necessary. There wasn't any hard part of the job per say but I was very eager to learn more and wish that I did because that was an opportunity that I was looking forward to for a while. The management team was very friendly and they also took the time to explain to us what was required. The most enjoyable part of the job was to prepare coffee and food for the guests.
Bell Captain, Doorman and Valet (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – September 7, 2016
I am so glad that the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis was my first job in college. The company is extremely well put together, and Hyatt Corporation is incredibly responsible when it comes to taking care of their employees. They promote from within and are very good at both promoting and rewarding people for their hard work.
During my time there I gained experience as a valet, doorman, and bellman. I learned about working with adult business travelers and gained an understanding of exhibitions and traveling events attendants and their various cultures and expectations. To this day my supervisor was the best boss I have ever had. I would recommend this company and this location to all who ask.
gratuities, working with people, practicing adaptability and problem solving
very corporate - vertical structure, monotonous at times, little autonomy
Not the happy happy joy joy atmosphere you see in job searching.
Engineer General Maintenance (Former Employee) – Clearwater Beach, FL – November 9, 2015
This company did not compare to expectations that were projected. Department manager distracted by other departments leaving disorganized junior management overseeing production. An extreme atmosphere of disharmony in all operational departments. Heavy turnover due to low evidence of goal realization and compensation expectations. And to say not all was bad I did meet some fantastic people and still maintain a relationship with several that are spread all around the country now and most all not affiliated with this company any longer.
