High pressure, low rewards

Assistant Executive Housekeeper (Former Employee)

Pros-If you are willing to work under high pressure and for very long hours for many years, you may eventually land a cushy upper management job that pays very well, such as a general manager of a hotel
-Almost free lunches
-Reduced rates at other hotel properties
-Chance to work with a multi-cultured workforce

Cons-ridiculously long hours for lower management (average of 50-70, depending time of year), yet lower than industry average salaries
-an atmosphere where blame is assigned before the cause is determined
-high turnover among hourly employees
-no fixed schedule
-Atmosphere where profit is the most important factor
-high competition among lower management to land promotions, which hurts morale and camaraderie

Advice to Senior Management-Lower tiered employees should get paid more. This will result in less turnover and thus less expenditures on hiring and training people.
-There often is a blame first, ask questions later attitude coming from mid-upper tiered hotel managers when there is a problem. This creates an environment of constant fear among employees and contributes to low morale.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
