Banquet Manager (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJanuary 4, 2014
The Westin was a great learning experience. Going from a fine dining venue that sat sixty people to banquets and cater outs of up to ten thousand was a awesome experience for me. I learned how to think fast, how to resolve conflicts quickly and efficiently. I learned how to work as a team and to stay orginazed through times of crisis. Because of that – more... and very good backing by management I never felt any part of the job was truly difficult. The most enjoyable part was working with the guests and watching their excitement when you and your team not only met their goals but went above and beyond for them and their clients. – less
