Bartender (Current Employee), Alexandria, VA – December 18, 2013
Pros: flexible schedule, great managers and co-workers.
Cons: no place to grow between the company.
My typical day at work is to serve and help people with all their needs. I try to make them feel like home even thought they are far away from it. One thing i could say i learned the most is "customer service". The better my customer service is, the most people i get to come back and do business with my and the company. The management is great. They – more... help us in every way possible, they listen to us and try to do everything in their power to make us do our job better. My co-workers are the best. We have been together for over six years. We help each other in every way possible and work always as a team. The hardest part of this job i could say is the schedule, because i start my day early in the afternoon and finish it very late in the morning, but still is fun. The best part of my job is definitely that i am able to meet everyday new people from different parts of the world and i can learn through them different cultures and different personalities, and show give them the greatest customer service in order to make them feel comfortable and happy to stay with us. – less
Valet Parking (Former Employee), The Woodlands, TX – September 7, 2014
Pros: good people and cars to drive
Cons: indecisive management
I had a great time being a valet(out sourced company) but the management was horrible to deal with. I was able to learn a little about the nice cars I drove and a little about hospitality but theirs not much to learn after that. Movement inside the company is none existent. The hardest part of the job was the long hours and indecisive management. The – more... best part was the people you meet and the cars you get to park. – less
Guest Service Representative (Former Employee), Omaha, NE – September 3, 2014
I learned how to help customers further through online services. The stress of meeting numbers was a little much. Also the overtime requirement made it hard to have a life outside of work and it became overwhelming. The most enjoyable part was the guest interactions, I absolutely love the customer service.
Challenging expierence that teaches one the culture of different gorups of people.
Guest Service Representative (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – August 31, 2014
Pros: learning different cultures and atending elegant events
Cons: lack of training
A day at the Hyatt Place is always a busy one. Here We do everything from making reservations to reserving a taxi. The most exciting part of the job is meeting people from all over the world. Since the layout of hotels are improving, I learned how to be flexible in completing everyday work tasks. With the help of our lovely management team, I learned – more... how to operate different systems such as Reserve, P.O.S, and Opera. The most difficult part of the job was learning to be patient and understanding that everyone is unique. – less

Assistant General Manager (Current Employee), Schaumburg, IL – August 24, 2014
Typical day of the AGM would usually consist of 10 to 12 hour days. Time management is extremely important in an environment where you do front office duties, pour drinks at the bar, check people in, drive guests in the complimentary shuttle, make lattes and cappucinos from our Starbucks machine, take orders for food as well as prepare those items in – more... the kitchen. After the front office gets situated and no longer needs assistance, I can get to my back office duties such as AP, AR, deposits, answering emails, and scheduling. The most enjoyable part of the job is also the hardest. As stated previously, time management is very important. It's the hardest, and yet most satisfying part of the job when you conquer your day. – less
