    Pros

    When available, the hotel benefits are nice. As well as PTO, sick days, etc.

    Cons

    No training program was ever demonstrated. You are on your own for learning the systems, and figuring out issues.
    Turn over was crazy!
    Sadly it all became too much to handle . When there was a problem, there was no support from management. When they say "everyone makes mistakes" they will use whatever you did against you.

    Advice to Management

    When making the schedule, don't use favoritism
    Have better solutions when any associates needs help with a guest
    Learn how to be more approachable

    Pros

    The service is at thIs hotel is about as good as you'll find anywhere else.

    Cons

    The way workers are treated inspires dissent and frequent labor strikes.

    Advice to Management

    ALL attempts to modernize are what's causing the decline in the quality of service.
    The ENTIRE management staff you should leave their positions and get out of the business EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY!!!

    Pros

    Beautiful surroundings at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66. Nice staff.

    Cons

    There is a complete lack of organization , supplies not ordered or counted regularly, no staff training protocol, no clear direction or rules for anything.

    Advice to Management

    Consider another line of work or get some training in how to run a business, this is a mess. Over 20 employees walking out in a year is not saying good things about your business.
