Server (Former Employee) – Fort Walton Beach, FL – February 14, 2019
When I first started working at the Hilton Garden Inn I really enjoyed my job and would probably never left. 4 months in my manager started to have a personal issue with me that I was unaware of. I suffer from PTSD and had 2 anxiety attacks at work. The first one I went to the ER for and the 2nd one my manager obviously had an issue with. I went to find our GM and have a conversation with and as I went to look for her, I passed an office and to my surprise I found my manger talking to someone in HR and she was making fun of my anxiety attack. Definitely not professional. From that point on she was being very passive aggressive towards me. I had a family emergency and had to take my mother to the ER and called in. 2 days later I was let go.
Front Desk Supervisor (Former Employee) – Peachtree City, GA – February 12, 2019
The management is exceptional! Your co-workers are wonderful! The job is fun and there is room for advancement. Sadly, if you are a one income household, it’s hard to make ends meet. There are no benefits and thats also a struggle. However, if you have a two income household or are able to balance a good budget, this could be the job and place for you. I hated leaving but I needed to go where the money was. If you work hard and show sincere interest there is upward mobility potential, it’s worth the commitment if you can. Peachtree City is a wonderful property and you might just make a career out of it. Good Luck!
Wonderful management, great co-workers, upward mobility possible

Lead Bartender (Former Employee) – Norman, Oklahoma – February 11, 2019
The Hilton is a wonderful company to work for. My experience was with a Hilton Garden Inn for 6 years and it was one of the best jobs I ever had. The company treated it's employees with respect and kindness. They provided a great work place environment and learning center for expanding one's knowledge in the hospitality industry. A typical day at work is you never knew what you were going to walk into. This made it exciting. Most days you would have to improvise and find ways to get things done and make it work, i.e., pop-up events, banquet parties, birthday parties, receptions, anniversaries, etc. The workplace culture was very diverse but everyone got along great. It was a fun experience and a pleasure to work with people from different cultures. The hardest part of the job was trying to find ways to power through large events due to the unforeseen issues that would popup unexpectedly that could potentially ruin the guests experience. However, finding a resolution to solve and correct the issue, made it all worth it in the end. So, the best part was seeing the guest satisfied and happy.
Exciting workplace, Met people from all over the world

Lead Maintenance Tech/Acting Chief Engineer (Former Employee) – Missoula, MT – February 7, 2019
I suppose since I was terminated illegally, Hilton can’t sue me for my story. I’m positive if the correct GM happens to read this, HE will know exactly who this is!!! I enjoyed my job and it’s requirements 99% of my co workers...in the beginning. After two years of employment, management changed so it was an entire set of new rules. I was Acting Chief Engineer at the property I worked at. The General Manager (whom I’d LOVE to name!!) offered me a $1 an hour raise until my promotion could get finalized. Expecting me to not only fill A MANAGEMENT position as an hourly employee but Lead Maintenance Tech as well. I was told multiple times, I was not authorized to do the Management training, yet expected to do 2 jobs at once. I was FALSELY accused of drug/alcohol use, I personally offered to take a drug test!! Falsely accuse me of using rental equipment and damaging guest property, yet ABSOLUTELY NO COMPLAINTS WHATSOEVER!!! Finally, due to all this stress, I began to show up a few minutes late for work...instantly written up while other staff constantly showed up drunk or high on meth with no repercussions?? 2 write ups for the same offense in a 4 and a half month period was sufficient to have me walked off the property and left not knowing if I had a job for 1 week. The GM refused to contact me, until he had “the time” to fire me.

The employee's at Hilton are very friendly somehow though the management is more like a click say something negative about them and they will actually attempt all possible angles of revenge towards you. You don't want to cross them. Glad I got out of there.

Houseman/Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – February 6, 2019
I was abused with my work load and ran around the hotel just to do other people's jobs. I was working three jobs in one and could not take the stress of the boss constantly telling me to hurry up or work on something else and then complain about not finishing the original work. I was constantly under servailence and felt pressured to do the very best even if it hurt me. I was fired for a simple problem and felt I was the only stable individual working along side temporary positions filled by drug users and weirdos.
Working at the Hilton Garden inn was a great place to work it was great management just a great overall place de Management was very willing to train you teach you skills just overall family-type environment just very nice company
HOUSEKEEPING HILTON GARDEN INN (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – February 5, 2019
The job itself is okay. However, management is terrible and you never have a set schedule. Some of the worker's there are nice though. It can be frustrating because they never let you take days off when you need to.
