    I worked at Hilton Worldwide part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This was for a at home reservation "specialist", in Dallas TX, there were really no pros, aside from the minuscule discount they give you, if you every have the chance to travel, which you have to go through red tape.

    Cons

    The "I" in Hilton stands for integrity... But its funny because they literally want you to pay for a land line, equipment to do the work, with 7 weeks of mandatory training on 9 bucks an hour. IF they did have any integrity whatsoever they would know no one can live off of that and pay for your own equipment, and yet be forced to train for doing basic tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know what integrity really means , Hilton is making 359 million in net income, last year but decides to pay employees like its the 1970.

    I worked at Hilton Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    large company with many employee perks

    Cons

    culture of adequacy....not looking to make real change as it is organized with a fiefdom mentality where all are too afraid to make a mistake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees that have real experience and not execs with newsletter educations in the digital space

    I worked at Hilton Worldwide full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Hotel discounts, well known brand, good city, good location, good benefits, friendly peers, covered parking, snack area, vending machine, water fountain

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover, poor training, unusual workloads (portfolios of 30+ hotels), mismatch hiring (e.g. they hire strategists and place them in analytical roles), unclear departmental divisions, busy work for the sake of busy work (endless checklists, audits, etc), inexperienced people managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Are you a ninja master at placing checks in checkboxes? Are you passionate about copying and pasting text, uploading images, and correcting spelling? Do you love pulling reports and creating graphs, leaving the meaningful work to other people? If you answered yes to all three, than this is the job for you!

    Hilton's eCommerce department didn't hire people like the above when I was there. Instead, they hired seasoned professionals from Fortune 500 companies and digital ad agencies, with backgrounds in strategic digital marketing, and placed them in predominately administrative and highly mundane eComm Manager roles. Not a good fit.

    We were assigned portfolios consisting of dozens of hotels (mostly motels), and we were expected to conduct endless audits, pull endless reports, and fill out endless checklists that constituted our day-to-day responsibilities - all day, every day. Additionally, we were responsible for website maintenance (swapping out promos, correcting spelling, etc). It appears things haven't changed. The average tenure of eCommerce Managers is currently around 1 year before leaving the company. High turnover = unhappy employees.

    They should consider only hiring individuals with hospitality backgrounds and specifically individuals from Revenue Management. The roles are very similar - analyzing data and conducting root cause analysis for assigned hotels (but from an online perspective and with the added layer of audits, checklists and website maintenance...and more audits and checklists).

    Actual online strategy/execution is managed by other teams (Demand Generation, Search, Social, etc.).

    Pros

    It's still a job so you get your paycheck.

    Cons

    incompetent higher management covers up unethical practices ( such as corporate bullying) of those who help them do their jobs and secure their positions.
    Good employees are discriminated and lazy employees are fully supported based on friendships

    Micromanaging at its worst

    I worked at Hilton Worldwide

    Pros

    Good benefits, good hours. The work is somewhat interesting.

    Cons

    Employees are micromanaged from every level of management. You will spend more time defending your work than actually doing it. Constant criticism even if you are a good performer. Very little room for career growth. Poor pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging. Stop constantly criticizing and point out the good as well as the bad.

    Terrible. The people who make the rules have no clue how the process works.

    I worked at Hilton Worldwide

    Pros

    It is good for retirees or stay at home moms

    Cons

    Their management does not listen to the employees. They are always trying to get more and more work for no or little pay. The pay is below average for other positions at other companies. They hire from within; however, they do not train the supervisors on proper rules and regulations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees seriously and stop making focus groups just to say you did.
