Event Technology Technician (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – April 11, 2016
This place is like a family which can be good or bad. Depending on your leadership there are opportunities for growth. Hardest part would be the hours. Most enjoyable part would be the staff. Management will help you move up if you want to. Great property to work for, they go above and beyond for guests.
Front Office Agent (Former Employee) – Northbrook, IL – October 15, 2016
I have learned to wear many hats working in the hotel industry for the past 4 years. I started off as a regular front office agent, which involves checking people in and out and making sure they are aware of their surroundings and hotel surroundings. Basically, acting as a hotel concierge. I also managed to learned how the restaurant industry works by becoming a server and learning the Micros system as well as how inventory works too. I then learned the hardest shift which is over night and that is where all the main accounting work happens, making sure all paper work is done properly.
Banquets and Bartender (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – March 1, 2016
As a Banquet server and Bartender at the Renaissance, I love it! I started working there when I was 17 going on to 18 and now Im 23 still working hard. Ive learned a lot though. Team work was NUMBER 1 thing. You have to have team work in order to sever with no problems. My co-workers are like a second family to me, we get along very well. We laugh together, work hard together, help each other out all the time and sometimes every cry together.
I would have to say it does take alot to become a Banquet server and a Bartender. You do have to be strong mentally and physically. It can be hard but as long as you push through you get used to the routine and it becomes second nature.
The most enjoyable part of my job is making the guest happy especially bar tending! Thats how I know Im actually doing my job right!
Renaissance Hotel is a very good workplace and organization.
Front Desk Concierge (Current Employee) – Long Beach, CA – July 21, 2016
My typical day at work starts at 5:00 am setting up and opening the VIP members club, meeting and assisting special guests, elite members and other guests allow to enter the club. In the afternoon I transfer to the housekeeping department to assist the manager with the checking of ready and dirty rooms, assisting in administration, or cleaning rooms if necessary, sometimes at night I assist in the banquet department if the Event planning manager needs any assistance. I have learned to meet my priorities and assignments. Work under pressure, and recognize the value of team work. The management is fair My co-workers are very good and may me feel as part of the family and organization Meet the physical part of housekeeping Meet the guest and creating a wonderful experience to those that like to wonder and discover new and better things in the Long Beach area.
Good benefit package, employees cafeteria, many employees activities
Security guard (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 17, 2016
The hotel Industry is not always booming but Will always keep you on your feet. When it comes to security in a hotel you never know what kind of call you'll get. The management in the hotel always had a firm grasp over their employees, but never overstep their boundaries of being in charge. worker and management always seemed to get along with each other. best part of working was never having the same routine everyday. hardest part of working here was sometimes having to pull back to back 16hr shifts.
Server (Current Employee) – Glendale, AZ – January 16, 2016
There are so many slow weeks and slow months as a whole because of the location, only games and events in the arenas nearby are the nights that money comes in. Management is iffy as a whole, with some being better than others. The average age of the workers does bring down the atmosphere and there is no real guarantee that you'll be sharing a fair amount of the work with anyone. The nights can be long and the mornings even longer and there can be a lot of unfairness in the share of the money and the way the 'busy' days/nights peak.
Lead Loss Prevention Officer (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – November 10, 2015
Working at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel, started not so good. I was working in Set up as a Houseman making 7.60 an hour. I had a son and girlfriend trying to support, with a 2 bedroom apartment. At times, I wanted to Quit but I stayed, because of the people I worked with and for. Things got better after while, I got a raise. Then promoted to Supervisor. Its a great place to work at and Marriott is a GREAT company........
Bad Management and Slow improvement, but Beautiful for the guest
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – June 29, 2016
I personally work in the front desk and was taken advantage of and all of my attempts of improvement went unheard. The coworkers were very nice at the time but most of them have left due to the toxic environment. I would ask if their managers have changed recently before applying or even considering working here.
Brand Representative (Current Employee) – Foxborough, MA – July 12, 2016
The Renaissance at Patriots Place in Foxboro, Ma is a great place to work and gain valuable interpersonal skills. Working at a high volume hotel can be stressful but the management in place makes it that much easier as they never let any discomfort or complaint go unresolved.
good benifets for full time employees and great innovative work culture
Hostile and Uncomfortable Work Environment... RUN, DON'T WALK FOR TJESE !!!
Sales and Catering (Former Employee) – Manager – August 19, 2015
The Renaissance was constantly busy, and I was never out of things to do, which I loved. The work/personal life ratio was definitely imbalanced, as the management's expectations are for you to be up there 24/7/365. The upper management in my department need to have a little more discretion about what topics of conversation is acceptable in a professional work environment. The "blame game" was a constant there, and preferential treatment to particular employees tended to divide everyone in the department.... Basically, everyone needs to pull their own weight. Did i mention that you have to not only pay to park, but walk about 5-6 city blocks to get to work. THE BEST thing that came out of my time at the Renaissance were the lifelong friends that I made while employed there!
Loved my colleagues, benefits, teamwork at times
No recognition from management when there is a "job well done" for any particular morning.
I very rarely feel that I had the proper tools to do my job. It became increasingly difficult to show up to work with a positive attitude as a result of frequent changes in management. The focus is almost entirely on the bottom line and very rarely on the employees.
Director of. Catering Manager/Event Planner (Former Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – July 10, 2016
I enjoyed working at this hotel. The owners were great and willing to spend for good help. I had great co workers and staff. They learned from me and I learned from them. I loved meeting and greeting all the people I did and help them with their functions.
Guest Services Liaison (Former Employee) – Washington, DC 20001 – August 6, 2016
Worked in different department, DTS Operator, Housekeeping Supervisor, Accounting Assistant, and Banquet Admin. Learn a lot, love my co-workers. Some great management. Hardest part of the job is when they have you schedule 3 different times in the same week. Meeting new people.
Great leadership from the higher management, fun to work.
Banquet Manager (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – August 9, 2016
A great place to work and great leadership from higher management. Diverse company and treats employee fairly. Open door policy is always exercise and avail advancement for in-house qualified employees.
The Renaissance has been a great place to work as far as co-workers and environment are concerned. However I do not feel like I am adequately compensated for the amount of experience and hard work that I put into the position.
I need somewhere that I can grow and advance. I strive for a continuing upward drive to greatness.
