Excellent for Single, College-age People
Overnight Supervisor (Current Employee) – Clayton, MO – August 2, 2017
Working for the biggest hotel company in the world provides you with many benefits and opportunities for mobility. You can work literally anywhere in the world if you put in the time and effort.
However, until you get to a salaried manager position, OR you are in a relatively high-paying hourly position AND you earn either a significant amount in tips and/or overtime, this company is not a great fit for families. I refer mainly to hourly positions above because of the relatively meager pay and the extreme volatility of the work schedule and your work/life balance.
The amount you earn is comparably better once you move into a salaried position, but the nature of the industry STILL requires you to have a very open schedule. You will frequently find yourself either coming in early, staying late, or coming in on your off-days, all of which situations will have you working at any hour of the day or night.
This is why I say that working for this company (and in this industry in general) is not great for those with a spouse and children because for a very long time you will not receive a sufficiently high wage to support a family, and much of your time will be taken from them at virtually any given moment of the week even once you do land a decent salary.
