bar waitress (Current Employee), UAE ras al khaima – May 26, 2013
I really like my job at the moment because I make it to the point that I can take responsibilities and I have the self ownership. The company trusted me to monitor the bar I learned lots of things doing the inventory how to make requisition and managing the bar alone . The management was cooperative but sometimes they need to give the staff some compliment – more... for doing a good job. The hardest part of the job was working long hours ,working under sun. I think the most enjoyable part of the job was making the guest satisfy. They are the one who make me feel important. They say that staff are the main reason why the guest keep on coming to our hotel, Because we gave them service that exceed to their expectation.. – less
Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee), Murfreesboro – October 19, 2014
I really enjoyed working for the Doubletree. I just was not making enough money to support my family but as soon as I found a better job they offered me a promotion but it was a little too late. I absolutely love hospitality and tourism.

Supervisor (Former Employee), Oak Brook, IL – October 13, 2014
Pros: free lunches and free parking
Cons: horrible food for lunch, poor pay
You don't have a regular schedule which is fine and expected when it comes to working in a hotel but certain people are given certain shifts because they are friends with management. If you find out that they are hiring for a certain position and apply for it you can't move up because they didn't know you were interested. If you are not best friends – more... with the HR manager you have lost your job. Certain employees can do things that others can't because HR likes them. Pay is poor and sometimes you don't get a lunch because it is really busy but get yelled at because it is busy. I will never work at the Oak Brook, IL location again. I have worked for Hilton before and this property left a bad taste in my mouth. – less

Housekeeper (Former Employee), Jefferson City, MO – October 4, 2014
Cleaning the rooms is never the hard part. The hard part is having to remove all of the dirty laundry and such out of it first. Some days, the work load is slow so you can take a little bit more time on each room when it comes to cleaning certain areas. As for the weekends, you need to get in scrub the main areas and get out. Mind you, our rooms get – more... double checked by a supervisor and she's usually nice about what needs to be done and how to get it done right the next time. It was a good first job but, I don't know about being a housekeeper again any time soon. – less
Executive Chef (Former Employee), Santa Fe, NM – September 30, 2014
Pros: free lunch, discounted hotel rates, great co-workers
Cons: lack of accountability, poorly trained staff.
Placing food orders, how to effectively manage my time. How to negotiate with vendors. Learned how to utilize management to work with co-workers. Hardest part of the job was learning to delegate. the best part of the job was the ability to be creative.
Night Auditor (Current Employee), Washington, DC – September 25, 2014
Pros: free breakfast and dinner
Cons: walking guest late at night
Typical day at work I start at 11pm and immediately start balancing accounts and do local tracking. I have learned much about accounting and balancing folios. My managers are ok. My co-workers are more helpful then my managers. The hardest part of the job is when we're sold out and have to walk people. Not too many guest are happy about that when they're – more... arriving late. The most enjoyable part of the job is the peacefullness when they hotel is quiet. – less
Front Desk Associate/Van Driver (Current Employee), Greensboro, N.C. – September 24, 2014
Double Tree is a great place for those who enjoy hospitality. The personnel are very great to work with, from housekeeping to the restaurant. Managing the hotel, guests, and paperwork can be time-consuming as a front desk agent, but is all worth it when tasks get completed in a fashionable manner.
