Pros: banquet grats, staff lunches, secret santas, free breakfast
I Started working at Embassy Suites when I was 17 years old. At that point in my life I knew I had a lot of growing up to do. I started out as a breakfast runner. I was alright at the job, didn't mind it. Made a lot of new friends and learned new things.
As the years went by, I found myself wanting more from the job. At that point I made the decision to start working online as a breakfast cook. I enjoyed this particular spot because I was able to interact with the customers more, worked in a faster pace environment and also accepted a pay raise. Most of my shifts at that point were for breakfast, but some days I would have banquet shifts as well.
Banquets is the job that I excelled and enjoyed the most. It allowed me to work with various different types of foods, work under much more pressure and gave me more independence in the company.
At the end I can honestly say that Embassy Suites was a place that I grew as a person and a chef. I had many years there, made friends and even family.
