Great Employer

Bartender/Server (Former Employee)
Novi, MI

I worked at Sheraton full-time for more than a year

ProsLoved the team work involved. Provides good pay in the food and beverage industry. Management is nice enough.

ConsNo room for advancement. Bad work hours. A lot of work is involved. They make you feel comfortable and wanted.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo as you say. Don't let employees think that they are coming in to do a job then be told last minute they are doing something different, it is not fair.

Low Employee Moral. There is a high turnover rate amongst everyone in the hotel.

Front Desk Agent (Current Employee)
Brooklyn, NY

I have been working at Sheraton full-time for more than a year

ProsDiscount Rates available anywhere in the world

ConsPay is not enough, high turnover amongst every position. Low Moral.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you claim to run a five star hotel, you should pay your employees as such. Stop trying to cut corners and pinch pennies. Hotel is very poorly constructed and we experience hvac issues, elevator shutdowns, and even food shortages although you charge NYC prices for rooms and drive expensive cars. This property will definitely lose its flagship.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I learned how to manage in very difficult working conditions with skill and grace.

Server (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

ProsI earned a good salary at the Sheraton and had good benefits.

ConsI worked rough and long hours and was not supported by management regarding continuing working issues that the staff and I faced on a daily basis.
