Rooms Corporate Intern (Former Employee) – Cedar Creek, TX – October 19, 2018
Working as an intern I was able to experience the different departments within the Rooms Department. Interning at Hyatt allowed my to advance my managerial skills because the managers were good at working to foster leadership. Hyatt is a family company and the truly comes across because all employees help to support one another.
-A typical day at work here for me would be pleasant -The workplace culture was very calm, peaceful, and mentally productive -The hardest part of this job was the first few days were I had to create a strategy to complete my job within three hours - The crew was the most enjoyable part of the job because I was able to learn of different lifestyles that made my days go by a little smoother.
Good place to build job history/ Chesterfield MO Hyatt Place
Night Auditor (Former Employee) – Chesterfield, MO – October 17, 2018
The job was okay but being there being only one overnight person a night makes it stressful in many ways. Firstly any issue you have to resolve alone from complaints that you do not have the tools to fix due to limited access to support ares at night to real emergencies. If you have an emergency you either have to wait for someone to show up if the phone is answered or abandon the post if it is that important. For me the incredible sense of loneliness, realization that you are truly on your own, and inability to do anything with people due to the overnight hours took it's toll on my mind. This is why I looked for other jobs because after 2.5 years of it I was burnt out. Also I was the supervisor after second shift left so that made the pay a little more insulting I will say that the 2nd shift positions are pretty good but they consider full time 30 or more so if you want a part time job with benefits and at least 30 hours it is a good deal. Overall if it is not the night shift it is really not too bad for what they pay but you will need a thick skin for hospitality. All of this applies only to Chesterfield MO Hyatt place.
Decent benefits, staff was amiable, and the location is nice
Overnight has no proper breaks and rushes can be very stressful.
Assistant Banquet Manager (Former Employee) – Rosemont, IL – October 17, 2018
It's been a number of years since I worked for Hyatt, though I remember it as a generally wonderful experience. Ultimately I left having reached a position with other managers ahead of me, leaving me without room to grow and I had not wanted to stagnate.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – October 16, 2018
Hyatt is a great company to work for. Just be prepared to work long hours and have your schedule be all over the place. I have learned a lot in a short amount of time and servers are willing to help you learn as a new manager. Hardest part of the job is having multiple people telling you different ways of doing the same thing. Most enjoyable part of the job would be the guests faces and responses when you make their stay or help them.
Restaurant Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – October 16, 2018
Always running in a state of being understaffed & overworked. Meaning that we neither had enough employees for the workload or enough scheduled to work. Uncaring management & human resources department. How many other hotels base management bonuses on guest satisfaction & expenses, TPG (owner) only bonuses based on how below budget the department is. This means it is race to the bottom.
Almost impossible to get fired. Meet some really great guests.
Having Gallery Hosts make the food as well as the coffee, bar, and customer service/room service isn't the best idea. Management is different per location but mine wasn't good at all, unnecessary expectations.
Line Cook (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – October 14, 2018
I work the morning shift 7am to 3pm ,first thing I do is to setup the line for lunch and cook for the guest and then, at lunch time I work the sauté station ,grille the broiler and the salad station I like staying busy.
Gallery Host/Night Auditor (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – October 14, 2018
Though management at this particular venue is lacking I will not fault the brand for that however the corporate ownership is at fault.
Now for the brand.
We are not known to be Front Desk Agents but Gallery Host.
This is why. (After working at 1 specific venue).
Assuming the reader knows the responsibilities of a guest agent I wont get into specifics.
A Gallery Host:
Typical guest agent duties... + -Take and make food orders 24/7 and or late bite menu. -Bar tending with no training except for a bunch of laminated pages on how to make specific drinks. (I rather have the guest show me.) The guest are my teachers and it's quicker than searching and following the recipe. (Tips included) (Bar closes at midnight) -Though their is complimentary coffee at certain hours of the morning and evening a gallery host is expected to make and serve limited Starbucks Coffee. A gallery host is expected to help with kitchen duties such as: -Setting up breakfast -Making/cooking breakfast -Washing dishes -essentially working at Hyatt Place as a Gallery Host you are extremely underpaid and under trained. -The only good out of all these hats we are required to have on is that it helps for those just getting started in the industry and getting their feet wet in all aspects and does not have to rely on a low paying job. -I'll add....we are expected to assist with catering. Setting up and taking down catered events or meetings. They feel the small % incentive they share with us a motivational aspect.
This job is not for those whom are use to working only as amore... Front Desk Agent.
I'll put on my happy face, assist guest, and assure a pleasant stay. After all. Most whom are not working and are willing to work would not mind working here.
I have over 10 years working at limited service, boutique, and full service hotels. Hyatt in comparison is the worse place to work for.less
