A decent way to launch your hospitality career

Front Desk Supervisor (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsThe people are wonderful and friendly for the most part (what you would expect from luxury hotel employees) and the company is fairly dedicated to promoting from within. There are also a number of great perks - free meals, hotel discounts, super cheap laundry service, and networking with the hundreds of guests that come each week.

ConsYour social life will be heavily impacted no matter what department you work for. If you're in the front office, forget it - you will be at work all hour of the morning, afternoon, evening - nothing is off limits. I often found myself working 6 days a week, staying for overtime, etc.

Also don't expect any leniency on your schedule - if you're scheduled for a 6am shift, you better not waltz in at 6:01.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a good look at your Front Desk staff and who has the potential to grow. I watched a lot of people with potential come and go, completely overlooked by short-sighted management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
