Housekeeping (Former Employee), Munising, MI – April 12, 2013
Pros: hotel discounts when traveling
Cons: little to no break
I did not enjoy the work place or the environment. People and employees were ignorant. The hotel was not kept up to date or the cleanest hotel in the area. The prices were to high for the condition the rooms were in. Hardest part was working long days in the summer with little to no air conditioning. I learned basic cleaning and maintenance.When time – more... off was requested, even weeks to months in advance, I was given a hard time. I do not recommend staying or working for this facility. – less
Executive Housekeeper (Former Employee), Battle Creek, MI – March 26, 2013
Pros: housekeepers get tips, whether its money or bottles and cans.
Cons: no room for advancement
I inspected hotel rooms, worked with housekeepers to make them the best. Ran shuttles to the casino when necessary, kept up with the laundry, cleaned rooms when necessary, worked in the kitchen area, helping with clean up. Vacuumed hallways and stairs. Inputed all clean rooms into the computer. Checked inventory.
I have learned to be a good manager. I – more... was able to work side by side with my co-workers, I never would give them any work that I would not do myself.
Hard part of the job was when the managers would not be consistent on policy and job titles which caused alot of friction with the employee's and my staff.
Enjoyable part of the job I was able to keep busy, I was able to interact with the guests. I was able to help out in the kitchen, laundry and I liked that, because I wasnt tied down to just being an Executive Housekeeper that is checking rooms. – less
Positive work environment with substantial customer interaction
Front Desk Receptionist (Current Employee), Sun City, FL – March 25, 2013
Pros: customer interaction
Cons: no benefits or incentives to advance
I enjoy most aspects of this job because I get to interact with all walks of life on a face-to-face basis. I work for an excellent owner and manager who utilizes my work skills and willingness to fulfill the task at hand. I have learned how to be patient with customers and find the positive in anything. The most difficult part of the job would be working – more... the night shift on long hours alone. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with people and learning from others so I can better myself. – less
Work varied due to too many workers for the amount of clients that came in.
Housekeeper/Breakfast bar Hostess (Former Employee), South Bend, IN – March 22, 2013
I enjoyed the work of being able to be self-motivated and when they surprised visited one of my rooms after iI cleaned it, I would get a good to excellent rating. The amount of hours was not enough and i had nothing to do but work and I love to work when thats all I had to do.
