My days at the Westin were always a challenge and I love it. Meeting my clients, assisting my team with their billing. Never a dull moment love the multitasking. Learn how to work within the hours of production and manage to get everything done. I will say my most enjoyable moment was when we meant our goals. What a great feeling.

Hostess - Greeted and escort guess (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – March 20, 2013
Pros: great benefits, pay for education
My day-to-day activities included guest requests were taken care of and accommodations were made for any special circumstances. Working in a hotel setting has changed my views on how to handle everyday situations better and how not to "crack" under pressure. My co-workers and I made our work experience as enjoyable as possible. The hardest part of the – more... job was maintaining a life outside of work because a hotel is open 24/7 and can be straining on your everyday life. I enjoyed this job because it stood over Atlanta. You can see the airport and even further. The view is an amazing one and made working there a treat. – less

Working at the Westin Cincinnati was a great experience. I worked there while in college. The people working there are all very nice and dedicated to the hotel.

Front Desk Agent (Former Employee), Kansas City – February 6, 2013
Pros: free lunches, hotel discounts, flexibility of scheduling
Cons: pay is not so great, very cliquey, advancement is hard
It is a very easy going place to work. It does get pretty stressful during the busy season. They want you to be very empathetic to guests even when the guests are yelling at you over something ridiculous. Its hard to stay calm and collected in those situations. Its expected of you to go above and beyond and all you get is a thank you. My coworkers are – more... the reason I stay. – less
Senior Accountant (Former Employee), Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands – February 4, 2013
Pros: free lunchs
Cons: long work days
Morning meeting to talk about the agenda for the day. I have learned how to multitask in may occasions. The hardest part of my job was to get everything done between 9-5 work schedule. What I enjoyed the most is the people I work with and finishing deadlines.
