Accounts Receivables Specialist (Former Employee) – Lombard, IL – November 4, 2015
No training, too much put one one person, no support very low wages all around not a good company to work for. Worked there for 4 months, was given very little training, and had a terrible supervisor. The pay was terrible, and the job duties were to much for one person to handle. Mistakes were made as a result.

Working at the Westin was truly a great experience for me. All the team work and the nice attitude of the managers made this experience really amazing. A very fun place to work then, the Saints used to stay there during the home games.
Line Cook (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – October 24, 2015
A typical day at work is very busy especially in the morning for breakfast buffet as long as Ala carte menu and room service. While in the PM shift is busy also we take care of the bar,restaurant and room service. I learned a lot from this establishment my co-workers are very kind to teach me. We always help each other if his/her line is busy. The most enjoyable part of the job is everyday you always learn something new. Also you got to work with different wonderful people.
The staffs at Westin Arlington Gateway are super awesome and friendly.

A typical day at work was stocking, filing, copying, transferring phone calls, and watching the security camera. I learned a lot like how to make room service reservations, spa reservations, using the phones, transferring calls, and so on. Management was nice. Co-workers were very nice and helpful. I liked it. Therefore, there was no hardest part. The most enjoyable part was watching the security camera and keeping busy.

Recreational staff (Former Employee) – Kaanapali, HI – September 28, 2015
Days start at 8:00 am, starting load towels, set up beach umbrellas, each guest is wearing a Westin Hotel wristband. Interacting with guest, building close relationships. I've learned to take initiative, work in the heat, great customer service whether it's for a guest that stays there going out my way to make that guest satisfied. Always have smile on my face, no matter the situation never frown or get depressed. The hardest part of the job was clocking out, I loved what I do so its not easy to leave the work site. The Kids!

The most enjoyable part of the job to me is from the Start of the shift to last minute of your day.
Responsible for day to day operations of housekeeping/laundry departments in a 500 room hotel
Director of Housekeeping/Laundry (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – September 4, 2015
I enjoyed working with the diverse employees we had and the guest of the Hotel. The most difficult part of the job was dealing with other managers within the Hotel. All were looking for the next promotion and relocation they could apply for...this made for a very unproductive management team.
