Trained in Corporate Customer Service (Former Employee) – Lancaster, CA – August 19, 2017
Starwood was a great place to work. I strived to be the best so learning all different sales techniques I was able to utilize my prior experience and the tools I learned over the years to exceed all monthly goals for 11 years.!
An excellent working atmosphere with great, knowledgeable supervisors that are willing to work with you and give you every opportunity for success. Extremely fair.
A typical day at work was making world-wide reservations for people of all backgrounds and cultures, assisting customers with their accounts, answering questions concerning different hotel amenities and locations, and using the Starwood Computer System.
It was a joy to work for Starwood Hotels and Resorts.
Clean atmosphere, scheduled lunches and breaks, friendly people

It is a benefit that everyone starts off a the same level regardless of qualifications. Job offerings are aimed specifically at current employees to allow equal opportunity for everyone. Staff is fair and very understanding so long as they are not taken advantage of. There are many gatherings and community support fundraisers that take place, supporting Make a Wish foundation, local schools, blood drives, etc. It is a great company to work for with great benefits. The only thing you have to do is show up and do your job and your job is safe.

PROJECT SPECIALIST - NATIONAL SALES & MARKETING (Former Employee) – Palm Desert, CA – August 8, 2017
A wonderful company with amazing knack to hire the right people. The only downside is, it is difficult to be elevated to management or directorship here. I loved working here for many years. If you are in Sales, you really can prosper if you are talented in that area.
Excellent leadership and culture. Many, many long-time employees.
It's not very often you find someone willing to pay you 15+/hr to sit on the phones and talk to people. The job can be mentally demanding as you climb the ranks, but it isn't usually a hard one. When you have time between calls, the people around you are often the best part of the job, but you don't get those breaks often because it is a world-wide chain. All in all, a good place to work, so long as you don't have any other responsibilities.
Premier Plus Associate (Current Employee) – Wichita, KS – August 4, 2017
for a call center this company has been one of the best and I could probably not even consider another call center to this one as no other could compare. The staff is so nice and they really work with you. The hardest part Ive found in this job is that as you advance you will end up with alot of down time between calls. It sounds nice at first, but the time drags by if you cant occupy yourself. The only other downfall is how hard it is to get an earlier shift once you move up.
