    I worked at Jumeirah full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Jumeirah is an amazing place to start your career, the fast-paced environment and putting the satisfaction of the guest first will teach you the best organization skills, customer service & understanding, attention to details. For the hard working and 'smart' people, there are always to a certain extend some opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    The working conditions are very tough: no work-life balance, time-off is limited, long hours and pressure to deliver: the guests won't wait. Pay is average or below average (hospitality industry).

    Duty Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Jumeirah in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    It was an international intracompany transfer. The position was open online, a manager knew me and referred me. I received a phone call for an interview. It was pleasant and not intimidating, probably because the manager who I was talking to, knew the person that referred me and completely trusted her.
    It was more to gauge my personality and if I fitted in the team, in this particular case.
    It took a little over a week to get the process started, and a few months with visa etc for me to come to the US. The impression I had from the interviewer and future manager was that I was in good hands. Everything I had hoped for to get with Jumeirah, I got fairly easily. This includes being promoted 5 times in 8 years of service.
