A job that can kill your passion for hospitality
Front Office Manager (Former Employee), Oxon Hill, MDJanuary 22, 2014
Pros: nothing was free except lunch on friday's which always had the chance to be week old food
Cons: everything
One of the most unprofessional environments I have ever been a part of. This hotel is a former red zone property, which means they almost had their brand stripped away due to grossly poor performance. Within 5 months of my employment they had reached #1 global status for guest satisfaction and there was no mention of this by upper management. Once asked, – more... it was brushed off and portrayed as "their own work". Which I found astonishing since in the previous 5 years of existence they had never been as high as #150. My staff was not congratulated, nor was I. This type of morale permeated the entire property and was not something I wished to continue being a part of. – less

Banquet Manager (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJanuary 4, 2014
The Westin was a great learning experience. Going from a fine dining venue that sat sixty people to banquets and cater outs of up to ten thousand was a awesome experience for me. I learned how to think fast, how to resolve conflicts quickly and efficiently. I learned how to work as a team and to stay orginazed through times of crisis. Because of that – more... and very good backing by management I never felt any part of the job was truly difficult. The most enjoyable part was working with the guests and watching their excitement when you and your team not only met their goals but went above and beyond for them and their clients. – less
