Hotels are wonderful places to work, especially in large metropolitan areas. Most are union and all have decent wages. Being at some major hotel chains can include discounted rooms at some of their other properties, which is great for vacation time. Hotels are open 365 days a year and shifts are 24/7. If you are just starting out and are fortunate enough to get hired, just know that your schedule to work will be the last one wanted by those senior to you in that department. In other words, expect to work nights, weekends, early mornings, and most holidays. Eventually, you will move up in seniority and have a great fit.
benefit package, free or inexpensive good meals prepared by hotel chefs, friendly staff
seniority rules as far as a schedule goes, you would first take what's available for a period of undetermined time. time clocks in and out, breaks included.
