Advancement to a point

Housekeeping Supervisor (Former Employee)
Scottsdale, AZ

Pros-Large number of properties to transfer to for growth
-Competitive wages for hourly
-Great benefits, ***401K program is great, so take advantage as not all employers offer matching
-Advancement and development is offered and encouraged from starting position to supervisory level

Cons-To transition into management is very rare. When management positions become available, it is oftentimes outside hires that are chosen rather than exceptional talent that is already present at the time. I saw this happen 3 times in 2 different departments at my property. 2 of those times, the outside hire didn't last more than 3 months.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company has great development programs & tools to further the advancement of budding associates, however is rather over-promising and under-delivering when it comes to actually putting that mantra into action.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
