I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts

Pros

Flexible hours, very easy to pick and drop shifts
Good money (tips). Though sometimes inconsistent.
Strong management team.
Beautiful building

Cons

Poor benefits. Insurance is mediocre.
There is no paid parking. So be prepared to pay $10 per day
That is all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work guys. I've never worked in a location with such friendly and helpful managers in my life.

    Pros

    A better understanding of what not to do at the next place you work.

    Cons

    Treated unfairly by management, hard to communicate to some of the managers who don't speak English . Scheduling problems when you put in a request 2 weeks a head and the manager still dose not work around it. Horrible communication. Managers don't help employees out when needed. They get mad at you when you ask for help or ask a question about something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication between managers and employees, better understanding if something happens like a thunderstorm when you have employees working outside. Professionalism training for managers due to unprofessionalism towards employees like me.

    I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts

    Pros

    The discounted hotel rates for employees may be a great perk for some people.

    Cons

    When hotel occupancy is small, hours are unfairly reduced. I'm full time, but last week I was scheduled lessthan 30hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not offer "full-time" employment and then reduce schedules to part time. With my erratic schedule I couldn't work a-second-job.
