I worked at The Mirage full-time (More than a year)
Entertaining meeting planners with dinner, hotel shows & drinks throughout the hotel. Toured meeting planners around the property. Had reasonable sales goal that was attainable. A sales team that was full of young & energetic professionals. Mon-Fri work schedule Off on weekends for the most part
Pay was extremely low for the job responsibilities Vacation was only 10 days that included sick days (I’ve heard that has change now) 9 hour work days…. longer if entertaining at night No causal dress days. Suit & tie is the norm. The job would have been 100% better however at the time we had a horrible VP of Sales. He made our day to day work environment extremely uncomfortable to say the lease and I cannot image working under him ever again, good news however he since was moved to a different property & position.
Advice to Management
Pay sales manager a reasonable salary not 45K a year
I applied online. I interviewed at The Mirage.
I applied online and received the call for an interview. My first interview was with two managers who asked questions from a piece of paper and they write my answers down. They were being attentive to my answers. Nothing too hard, but they asked multiple questions at once. You have to elaborate answers and try to include what you would do in each situation. The first interview was a very pleasant experience. The second interview was with the Director of the department. The Director didn't ask anything new, just read the answers that the two managers wrote in my first interview and ask three of the same questions. I could have answers the same thing but I didn't want to sound scripted, that caught me off guard as I struggled a little bit to try to word differently. The Director was saying how I have work experience but not that much, and I was thinking "you didn't look at my resume before you called me for an interview?!!". Sometimes the company would call you for an interview just to criticize you about your work experience, and I do get that here. I removed my job application after I learn that it wasn't the job I thought it would be. It was misleading how they didn't put on the web site that this is a temporary job.
