A Typical work day at the Ritz Carlton Hotel is exciting.Mangement and co-worker's are really nice. U are being treated with respect. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The hardest part of my job is when guest comes to the hotel and just had a bad Day or flight and some guest can be very nice and then u have some guests are just rude and disrespectful, but yet we still as Ladies and gentlemen still have to make that guest feel like they are at home, still give the proper respect and yet, knowing that u not going to get the respect back in return can be very hard. But yet You at the end of the day it's about the guest. The most enjoyable part of my job is just putting a smile on the guest face and just making them feel like their at home. Giving the smile and going over and beyond to make the guessed happy to keep them coming back. The Ritz Carlton is a 5 star Hotel and it's Lives up to that 5 star. Wonderful company.
Free Lunch, discount parking, located in the mall, nice view of lake & city
although it is a rich company, they do not invest in a quality office space and they are extremely understaffed trying to save money for the company when obviously the company can do better, which cause overtime work and more stress to employees.

Bueno, es bueno el trabajo en la cocina conoces gente nueva es un Ambiente familiar es tu familia en el trabajo. Al llegar al trabajo bajo presion. Lidiar con la presion de los jefes durante meses el mantenimiento es bueno, exelente dia tras dia mis companeros son como una familia en el trabajo. Ganarse a los companeros y ganarse a los jefes. La mas divertida es trabajar en conjunto y en familia.
Los pros buenos son, el trato del contrato, los break, etc...
Los contras son, el poco tiempo libre, mucha presion, etc...
Front Desk Agent (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – January 29, 2016
Overall, a great place to work especially for mid-career or college grad advancement. Most in housekeeping, stewarding, residences, and in-room dining stay for 10 + years. FOH operations cycle through employees every 1-3. Many stay for the experience and name to apply for better opportunities elsewhere.

The best place I have been apart of, very good hard working people I worked for. They make sure your well feed and also give you the opportunity to learn any and every department you would like to work in to figure out if that's what you wanna be or choose other wise
Front Office, Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – February 4, 2016
The Ritz Carlton was a great experience. The teamwork aspect is huge in a hospitality/customer service industry in a large hotel.
Management is very different depending on the department, however, relationships are very easy to build with managers as you are constantly interacting with almost every department when working in the front office.
The only downside to the company is the chance for advancement. There is very little available within the hotel you are at; when a position does become available, there are many people that have been waiting their chance to apply for that spot and will be considered before anyone who has not been with company as long. The company is large and expands globally; so a position may be sought after by hundreds of people within the company.
I enjoyed my experience with the Ritz Carlton thoroughly. The cultural is amazing to be a part of, and the customer service experience I developed is applicable in all work environments. I highly recommend this company for anyone looking for experience in customer service and a close teamwork environment.
Housekeeping Supervisor (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – December 13, 2016
a typical day at work is office work then on the floors checking behind co-workers. We have times when we have to work with what we have when our machine in the laundry beaks down. What I enjoy about working here is getting to know people from all over the world.

The Ritz makes a big deal out of themselves when you get hired, and you actually think that it might be a good place to work, until you start. I will say that their full time benefits are good, but they are expensive. Other than that, this place leaves a lot to be desired, and I'm being kind. I worked in the lobby bar and it was ridiculous-no busser or food runner and the smallest kitchen, all in the busiest outlet in the hotel- really nice planning... It shows how concerned the Ritz is about their people- not at all. They try to hire younger, good looking people mostly, but the ability of these types is usually sub par, which wouldn't have been so bad if you got to keep the tips you earned, but they pool the tips to reward the least productive, at the expense of the harder workers. Very clicky there between employees also, I saw everything from employees 'sleeping' with their coworkers and even guests while on the clock, to people drinking on the job, to captains leaving their assigned outlets to do similar deeds. Upper Management is not ethical there, as they engaged in the same behavior. (In 2015 their Core manager and it's Sommelier were canned for making Core's extensive wine catalog their own personal after-work watering hole. This would have been bad enough, but the Ritz upper management actually tried to save their manager and pin all the blame on the Sommelier, and it almost worked except for the vigilance of the security personnel.) Overall the Ritz Dove Mountain is a bad place to work, with unethical management who could care less about you. The only positive ismore... the benefits, but these exist only because the Ritz is owned by Marriott, one of the biggest hotel chains in the world which owns 14 other hotel brands as well.less
Food and Beverage Supervisor/ Beach Operations (Former Employee) – Miami Beach, FL – September 13, 2016
I was in charge of managing my department and employees. I would arrive to work daily, about one hour before my staff, so I could prepare for my line up and morning meetings. I would walk my area to ensure proper set ups standards and then conduct line up. I would be on the floor interacting with guests and employees during my shift. My office work would wait until close.

Being able to work for a 5 star Luxury brand hotel has taught me how to deliver customer service at the highest level. At the Ritz Carlton we take ownership of a customer issue and resolve it immediately. Great company and growth
