Great place to work

Concierge (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Hyatt full-time for less than a year

ProsI absolutely loved my time here. The environment is professional and fun. They really try to make your time there a good time.

ConsManagers are young and fresh out of college. Run the show a little too much from what they learned in Hospitality School. Also working holidays is a give in, which is kind of a bummer.

Sales administrator

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Hyatt

ProsStable job with good hours. Management had a great open door policy.

ConsToo hung up sometimes on "standards", had to take each guest on a tour of the hotel or risk an audit error.

It was a great experience.

Corporate Intern (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Hyatt as an intern for less than a year

ProsGreat pay, great culture and structure.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet in touch with the hotels themselves more to really get to know the customers and see how management is doing within the hotels. Recruit better for management in hotels.
