    I have been working at Fairmont Raffles

    Pros

    Fairmont offers a lot of opportunity for growth within the company, whether it be with the property you currently are employed or at another property elsewhere. Also, Fairmont prides itself on providing top notch customer service and they truly do.

    Cons

    For me I would have to say the only downside of working for Fairmont Pittsburgh is that it is a new hotel that has not even been open for one whole year. There for there have been a lot of kinks to work out resulting in a higher than average turnover rate for the hotel industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would focus on lowering employee turnover rather than other side projects just in this beginning year of being open.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fairmont Raffles in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I talked with the HR Director. She was very nice to me. It basically consisted of standard behavioral questions. I think they put a lot of attention on the leadership skills since it's going to be a 14-month training program in which one will be directed by a senior manager.
