Aplies to Kitchen only
Pastry cook (Former Employee), Halifax, NSMarch 13, 2014
Pros: free lunch, get to nibble on what you are making
Cons: sporatic hours, (can work between 2-12hrs whether posted or not), hot and cold working conditions, loud work area
The management in the Kitchen at the Westin Nova Scotian is just plain bad. Mostly due to lack of communication and I think part of that is a language barrier. If that was it that would not be so bad, if there are issues that need to be resolved through the manager they refused to do anything to help. They would basically just shrug it off and leave – more... you in a bad position. I would not recommend working int the Kitchen. – less

This was one of my positions with StarWood hotels.
Reservation Agent (Former Employee), BahamasNovember 16, 2013
Pros: getting great rates on room reservations to differently hotels around the world.
Cons: the always changing computer program.
The typical day at work was assisting customers with reservations with group arrival and reservations. I learn how to be detail orientated and to always follow up with your guest and your meeting planners for the full guest experience to our island. Management was a joy to work for and always made sure you had the tools and the knowledge you need to – more... be successful at your job. My co-workers was always a joy to work for and always believe in a team work approach. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the different computer program change. I enjoyed this job because I got to meet new people every day. – less

Night Audit
Night Auditor (Former Employee), Austin, TXJuly 11, 2014
Coworkers were like a bunch of high schoolers. They had cliques which included managers. I learned alot from this job, because we were always understaffed and employees were under trained. The people who learned quickly had to hold the rest of the department up.
HR was Terrible, always on vacation.
