Current Employee - Gift Shop Attendant in Orlando, FL

I have been working at Hilton Worldwide part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Team member travel program is decent (as long as what you are looking for is available), pay is pretty good; as a gift shop attendant I started at $9.00/hr and now I make almost $10/hr. Friendly managers.

Cons

Weekend scheduling (at least in my department) is a joke. Only one person working the gift shop for the whole day on any given Saturday or Sunday. Makes for a super long, boring, and challenging shift if it is a busy day. Also, have tried numerous times to advance and have been passed over for someone less qualified. I'm at the point of giving up any hope of starting a decent career with this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let loose a few extra dollars on labor for the scheduling problem. It's seriously ridiculous. And let those of us with actual college degrees have a shot at a better job instead of giving them to others solely based on popularity.

    I worked at Hilton Worldwide full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Reduced rates if staying in a Hilton affiliated hotel

    Cons

    Completely understaffed to the point where they would force employees to work until 2 or 3 A.M on a night shift and still schedule them for a 5 A.M shift a whole 3 hours later.

    High turnover rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire enough employees so you don't have to frequently schedule essentially 20 hour work days.

    I have been working at Hilton Worldwide

    Pros

    Team members are valued & appreciated. Company is great at boosting morale, by hosting free events for all to enjoy - Yearly Crabfeast (hosted by CEO), family day watching Nationals baseball, freebies all year round (pizza, ice cream, desserts, movies, etc).

    Cons

    Been employed with HW for years & have tried numerous times to advance/move around within the company. It has been challenging to say the least. No room for growth or advancement. Completely frustrating & discouraging.
    Team Member travel program used to be decent, now its not even worth it to try & book a room at employee rate.
