    I worked at Hyatt part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My supervisors were amazing to work with and everyone there was very accommodating with scheduling for school and took my opinions into consideration when I had an issue

    Cons

    Some of the guests in the hotel weren't the best people to be around
    Not very good starting pay, but just barely enough to make ends meet.

    I have been working at Hyatt

    Pros

    Hyatt is a company that really takes care of their associates. From the great benefits to the investment on professional growth of their associates Hyatt values their most important asset:it's employees!

    Cons

    If you want to move up quickly in the company you will have to look at transferring to various properties.

    I have been working at Hyatt full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The Company culture is like no other I've experienced. I have never worked at a place with so many positive, upbeat and friendly people. The perks and benefits are great but mostly it's about the people. .

    Cons

    My particular Hotel is over 35 years old. They have done an excellent job maintaining it but I believe it may be time for a renovation. Good news is I am told that one is scheduled to begin in soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change a thing; you're doing great. Thank you.

    I have been working at Hyatt full-time

    I worked at Hyatt full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Free Food, Comp rooms and discounts on almost everything, flexible schedule if you are in school, transfers to other properties after a year. Some managers are really there for you and want to help you grow. it is a family because you have to depend on your co workers to keep you sane.

    Cons

    HR in some properties are horrible. They only help people that they are friends with and have different rules for everyone else. It's hard to get a transfer in some properties if you do not fit their image, lots of turn overs so there are always new employees, no proper training. new agents get thrown into a sold out night without any training therefore they quit soon after hiring. Promotions are very hard to come by since most supervisor positions have been cut out the same with housekeeping

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within before you hire someone from the outside especially if that person is already doing the job yet is denied the promotion and has to train the new person. Have better training and more experienced agents work with the newer agents longer than 2 weeks. Boost morale instead of sending negative information all the time

    Pros

    I love bartending for the Hyatt. The clientele is wonderful, the hourly wage is higher than most food services positions, the tips are great and the management is outstanding. The Hyatt offers travel discounts for all employees and benefits if you work full-time hours.

    Cons

    The hours are long, which is typical in this industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep setting high standards - you're doing great!

    Pros

    Comp days if you work more than 5 days per week
    12 comp nights per year at other Hyatts

    Cons

    It varies from hotel to hotel, but it never stops. It is a 24 hour a day, 365 per year business.

    Former Employee - Corporate Itern in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Hyatt as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    While interning at Hyatt Corporate I gained an abundance of business skills and experience which played an integral role in getting a full time position upon graduation. Hyatt makes employees feel important treats everyone with respect and positivity. The energy at the Corporate office is contagious and I would love to return.

    Cons

    There is a large gap in positions between interns/ assistants and senior management, making it hard to move up in the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing, you make employees feel valued and happy employees leads to better work!
