    Former Employee - Renaissance St Louis in Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at Renaissance Hotels full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I was a Sales Manager, and we had an awesome team - great teamwork!! We had good support from our leaders in the hotel and they truly listened to any concerns that we had.

    Cons

    When I worked there we were managed by Davidson Hotels & Resorts, soon after I departed the management changed to Schulte. I do not have enough knowledge of the new company to make a great assessment of cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to rally behind the Sales Team and show your appreciation for their efforts - you have outstanding talent there!!

    I worked at Renaissance Hotels full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very fun company to work for. You are on the beach, weather is great ALL year round, you work around hot women all day, both customer and employees. See people from all over the country. Very fast paced job, very fun, especially during spring break, holiday seasons

    Cons

    Cancelled employee meal, but if you are a server or bartender you make so much money to the point you dont have to worry about discounted meals cost.
    Some staff members can be kind of rude, but no job is perfect, overall quality of job is good and fun. High Turnover rate

    I worked at Renaissance Hotels full-time

    Pros

    My co-workers were great, and I got along with them very well. The work was also not particularly difficult. The company offered incentives for those who received a positive review on TripAdvisor.

    Cons

    Lots of "Monday Morning Quarterbacking" from the management. Lack of communication from other departments. Rules were oftentimes enforced in an arbitrary manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider improving communication with other departments. Consider implementing clear, written policies and procedures that are followed by all associates and are uniformly enforced.
