Fast-paced work environment that allowed creativity when sovling problems.
Pros: many new customers, something new everyday, hard work.
Cons: often an unsafe and threatening location.
My day at work would consist of arriving early in the morning to count out and drop off the nightly revenue at the bank, deal with any pressing matters from the night before, and correspond with the corporate offices as needed. I would then spend some time with my employees in their different departments to observe, correct, and advise upon their conduct. I would assign daily projects for my team and hold a safety committee meeting as well. The rest of my day would be spent greeting customers, inspecting rooms at the hotel to ensure company standards, and to complete special projects of my own. I learned how to lead a team effectively and honed my customer service skills. The management team personal often changed but I had a great working relationship with all my supervisors and worked hard to support them. I managed two different locations and both teams were extremely close-knit. Many of my co-workers had been there for years and had be trained primarily by myself. I really enjoyed making positive changes and a real difference in my daily work. I believe mistakes are a training opportunity and I loved to watch my employees grow and succeed with my help. The hardest part of the job was remaining safe as both locations were not in a good area. I would often have to contact the local police for external incidents.
