    Pros

    This a company where there really is room to grow, both in your own department and by transferring to another. People move from Front Office to Sales, from F&B to Catering, and everywhere in between. If you work hard you will be recognized and given the opportunity. Certain departments, like Sales, have the best training plans- it's very structured and you're taken through the process step by step. Since LPM is part of Starwood we get the Star Hot discount at properties world wide... it's great! Definitely something to take advantage of when traveling or to share with family/friends. Hospitality is such a unique industry so it's nice to work with people that are truly passionate about what they do. It's a group of people that work really hard to complete the job and please our guests.

    Cons

    No vacation for the first year (though you do get sick time and a birthday personal day). There is a 401K but no matching. Also, a renovation is in order to keep up with industry trends and consumer demands... hopefully soon!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee suggestions and keep an open mind. Sometimes they have great ideas that may take time/effort to implement but would boost morale & sense of community.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Le Parker Meridien Hotel (New York, NY) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I saw the posting on Indeed- took me to the company's website. No applicant tracking system- just had to send a resume to career email address so that was simple. Recruiter got back to me shortly after with follow up questions via email. After I responded I was called by the Recruiter to schedule an in person interview. Filled out application, met Recruiter and several Managers. Then came back for a "shadow day". After that met with the Executive team. A long, thorough process with lots of people to meet. Didn't understand why it took a long time while I was interviewing but now that I've worked here I get it. This is a company where employees stay for a long time- this is unique in a hotel setting. They want candidates to really fit with both the culture and the department. If you're patient, keep communicating, and follow-up you'll stay informed.
