Do you work at Hyatt? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

YOU CAN'T EVEN WRITE OR SPELL, SO GO HOME TO YOUR OWN COUNTRY,WITH A LETTER LIKE THAT YOU DON'T DESERVE TO WORK IN THE USA SO GO GO GO GO. SEE YA!

I have a MBA from California State University and am a RVP for Hyatt. If I have to choose someone with personality (but can't type/spell) versus someone who is so blantently anti-HR in his predjudicial statements (even though you MAY have some education) I will choose the person that is willing and eager versus the predjudice comments that you've made, trust me when I say, I will never hire someone like you. And furthermore, if I could, I would love to get your resume so that I can black ball you on every job search engine (as I am very personal and close friends with the some of the RVP's at both careerbuilder and monster)...so please, feel free to post your resume so I can have you essentially banned from every website I can get a hold of. You make living in America, at times, an embarressment.

You sound like a very important person, surely you are not afraid to post your name.

You are asking Joe to walk into the spotlight, let both you AND Joe share the same spotlight.

Joe may be excercising his rights of free speech, he may hold prejudice. But who are you to threaten him?

So fess up, admit who you are. Surely you are so important, you have no concern what the Hyatt executive branch thinks about your internet postings.

Using Free Speech to defend a racist statement is enough to make a sentence wanna end its own life. He should be outed for making a direct corellation between ignorance and foreign. Go ahead and blacklist so an employer won't miss my resume' due to the recovery time necessary from the the ramblings of learning curve of the country. "hey stupid" entries are rarly the musings of the well informed.Now. Let the hatemail commence.

No offense, but how in God's name did you acquire an MBA from Cal State with your horrible spelling? I honestly can't imagine any university granting you a passing grade on any of your written projects nor could I conceive of you as a Hyatt RVP when you lack both the discernment and the professional skills to effectively deal with someone who was obviously nothing more than a bulletin board troll.
Where do you come off threatening to black list someone, or for that matter, anyone here for any reason whatsoever? If the post offends, flag it. That is within the boundaries of your immediate authority. But to threaten to take actions outside the scope of this forum to affect someone's personal livelihood because of an offensive social opinion simply makes you look like some sort of a reactionary control-freak, and casts a ghastly pallor upon the very institution you so unctuously claim to represent.

Are you reading all of the postings? I did state that I felt I had made a mistake by posting that message. I have taken a different course of action. Please read before posting.

Don't patronize me.

I'm insinuating that you are not the person you comport yourself to be.
For example, you claim to have received an MBA from California State.

And yet, you write things like this: "I *definately* got carried away with his *insensative* and *predjudicial* remarks. It's below me...thanks for bringing me back. It's *definately* his right to voice those opinions...even if they are ignorant :"

I've taken the liberty of marking your many misspelled words with an asterisk. Since an MBA is one of the most difficult degrees to acheive and requires countless WRITTEN projects I am loathe to find someone here who I conceive is yet another imposter purporting themselves to be someone evidence suggests they are not.

My point is this: I don't give a mad-cap f* about anyone's education here or lack of it. I don't even use people's spelling or punctuation as an effectual means to judge their basic intelligence. However, if and when that person makes bold claims to be some sort of laureate where the evidence strongly suggests they are not, they place themselves in the same category of corporate bunko artists at employment agencies who post false and misleading employment opportunities which float to the surface in search engines such as this.

The waters of the job market here are polluted enough without posters like you contributing to the miasma.

Thank you for rising to my defense, but when you responded, you bit into their bait and got fished in yourself.
I think that it's safe to say that "Dave," "Bobo" and "Raj" may all have something in common (such as a common IP).

It's really best just to ignore them and quietly chortle at the misadventures of those gullible enough to take them seriously.

WOW! After reading most of your comments I lost my interest in "HOW TO GET A JOB AT HYATT?". JOE, I HOPE YOU DON'T WORK FOR HYATT because I can't imagine to work with people who tell someone: "Dear STUPID,
YOU CAN'T EVEN WRITE OR SPELL, SO GO HOME TO YOUR OWN COUNTRY"!!!
It's also quite distracting to see so-called highly educated people argue about spelling, MBA's ... who has what... blah, blah, blah... I mean, what are you people trying to prove? Don't you have real problems?! Are you this bored?!

The Austin Area has two Hyatt properties, one is very new, located near Bastrop, Texas. Apply for a position first on Hyatt's web site. I know we get a lot of applications for many positions. It should probably be a good idea to call the HR department after your application and see if you can arrange a face to face visit. This is advice may be helpful for any position or company you may be interested in working at.

All the best to you.

I had an interview with Amerisuites (Hyatt Place) Keystone last Thurs. I have really mixed feelings about the whole thing. I met with the GM in a 2 1/2 hr interview. She explained to me that I was applying for the 2AGM position and the requirements. Having almost completed my degree, she told me how qualified I was and her plan for me. She told me that she would be gone this week to Chicago for a meeting, but her 1AGM would contact me this week for a 2nd interview. She said it was very important to her that the AGM's got along. Well.. it's Thurs. night, and Scott didn't call, so now I'm worried. I really want this job, but I'm not sure what else I can do to ensure that I get the job. I sent the GM a thank you card thanking her for the opportunity that she had given me. Should I assume that I am out of the running? x crossing my fingers!! x Please let me know if you have any advice!!!

The Amerisuites/Hyatt Place product is a smaller select service brand of Global Hyatt. The Hyatt Place concept is currently a very hot product. Those Amerisuites branded hotels owned by Hyatt are currently undergoing renovation to become Hyatt Place Hotels. Don’t worry to much about not being called back immediately. These hotels only have 3 managers and it sounds like one is at a meeting. Based on the information you provided I am sure they will have you come in for a second interview. If you do not here from them by the end of the week, call the manager you originally spoke with next week to follow up on your application. All the best to you with your future career endeavors.

I truly appreciate your comment. I just get leary with calling back. I do not wish to bug them. I do really want this job tho. I think that I have a lot to offer them. My only hope now is that Jeanette will see the card when she gets back, and says, "Scott, did you get a hold of her?" lol

My thoughts exactly, Please keep the post related to the topic of the thread, which is aimed to help people decide to take the related job or not. Otherwise you're wasting everyone's time.

Now then, I was considering taking a job with Hyatt as a front desk worker so I applied. I haven't heard back yet. I was reading through the thread to see other people's comments (which unfortunately were mostly useless).

I have worked for the Hyatt(on call)and they are competitive in pay and benefits for this industry. Ones best bet is to apply on line and follow-up directly. Overall I would recommend the Hyatt as an employer.

1. Most places would not hire you with a criminal record, especially 4 felonies! 2. That is not 'racist'. Biased maybe. 3. I wouldn't work for Hyatt anyway. Poor management at the restaurant level. If they want you out, they will "find a way" to let you go. Very unprofessional in the Orlando area.

A Tale of Two Hotels

98 months ago

A few years ago I was in dire need of a job and since Hyatt was in my back yard, I went in and filled out an application. Hyatt also asked me to apply online so I did that well.

I received two rejection emails form Hyatt indicating my background levels did not meet their minimum requirements. I went into that hotel and just by luck I had to use their Concierge services (I had applied for a Concierge Manager position). The employee didn't even know the area or how to use a color laser copier!!

Fast forward to today. I am now working with Mirage Resorts - Las Vegas, Nevada. Keep on applying and do not rely on Hyatt. There are other hotels too like Marriott, Four Season, Double Tree and more.

If Hyatt cannot or will not invite you to an interview, why wait. Move on!

Good Luck.

You misspelled embarrassment, Joe, I'm embarrassed for you. I'm grappling to understand why you feel compelled to divulge your degree, and the fact that you are "very personal and close friends with some of the RVP's". I'm quite certain that you don't speak for Hyatt's values, especially "Manage with humility". You do a fantastic job representing yourself - kudos - But my interest in you, and who you "know" is probably even less than the people you come into contact with each day. You do not speak for Hyatt, Careerbuilder, or Monster, sir.

Good Luck. You must learn something new everyday while you're looking. I'd respectfully suggest that you work on your English grammer and spelling. An incorrect job app. will make your job hopes crash.

There are several free language programs online, many at any book store in the Language section. www.PentonOverseas.com offers childrens language courses and adult ones that you can watch on your TV on a DVD. I like the Lyric Language and the Professor Parrot ones in Spanish/German/French for my child & I. They are fun with music. Similar items are available in English.

Other than that, read books in your chosen area that you wish to work in.

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

It seems to me that the Hotel industry will hire people only if you start at very low paying entry level or have already done the entry level & build-up jobs in the hotel industry.

A hotel industry degree might be the only other realistic hope of getting around this. Sure there's probably someone somewhere who came from another industry w/ similar experience but from my own checking it must be an extremely low - very low - %.

I could not agree with you more,they constantly have an ad in the paper/online and yet when you go thru the entire application process ie.online app and assessment test and excellent refs. and experience NO ONE gets back to you and yes when you try to contact them you get no where FAST. It's too bad they lost out on a great employee.

Hyatt promotes diversity in many aspects of its business. It starts with selecting vendors that are minority-owned, and when it comes to employment, they work closely with community agencies and schools to ensure that everybody gets a chance. You can apply either online, or by phone. There is a special 800-number that takes you through every step of application. To get more info, call HR department at a Hyatt in your area. It also helps to go over there and ask all questions right on the spot.

They do not care how you spell and what is your accent if spelling is not in your job description. When selecting the right candidate, they look for stability in employment history and accomplishments, as well as attitude.

A racist slur can cost you employment there, because it is not tolerated.

By the way, feel free to check spelling in this comment. I am foreign. I work for Hyatt. And I am proud of both facts.

I just got hired at the hyatt, with no experience...not much college (1 yr) and I would say the most important thing is your attitude!!! They are looking for positive, outgoing people, who want to learn and grown with the company. I went into HR several times checking back for jobs and they finally got an interview. I had three interviews total and each one I told them how much I wanted to work and develope a career with the company. you really need to sell yourself and convince them you can do any task they want and you will try really hard to suceed

Wanda in Haddonfield, New Jersey said: I had worked for Hyatt in the past but I was referred by an employee. It's very rare that they post in the papers unless it is a job fair. The best thing to do is to go to the job post that is near Human Resources to get a good idea of what they are looking for. Most of the time, they look for housekeepers or banquet servers. Even if they don't have the type of position you want, it's still a good idea to go in and fill out an application anyway.

One other thing, make sure you fill out the application completely. Hyatt Human Resources is not too fond of an applicant inserting "Please See Attached" and have a copy of a resume to submit with an application -- sometimes, they can get separated in the process (how do I know? I was an Employment Manager there), especially when they file them for future reference.

Good luck!
