I have been working at Corporate Concierge Services full-time (More than a year)
I came from retail positions where my favorite part of the job was the interactions with the customers, this job allows me to interact with guests and provide them the best customer service that I can without having the stress to "sell and make numbers." I have a great work life balance accompanied by a consistent schedule every week so I am able to plan things, I am able to leave work and not think/worry about what is happening and time off is never an issue (within reason of course). Apart from everything else, I have an amazing boss that is easy to work with. She does a great job with communicating, whether it be phone calls or emails she is always quick in her responses despite having multiple properties that she oversees; having a great boss is key to enjoying and loving your job. Everyday I am glad that I decided to make the leap to a new position/career and have not looked back, I see myself staying with this company as long as I possibly can.
There are honestly no downsides to this position or to the company. The one change, while not bad, that I did have to get use to coming from retail was the time off benefits, i.e PTO, sick, etc. At my other positions I did not have to accrue my PTO as the year went along, I just received the time at the beginning of the year so as long as I was there until the end I was fine; this helped when I had longer trips planned. I also had apart from my 10 PTO days, 5 sicks day and 2 personal days which was nice because if I was in fact sick I didn't have to pull from my PTO and could save it for vacation time.
I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Corporate Concierge Services (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.
Got a phone call to set up the 1:1 interview schedule
Short interview (5-10 mins)
Nice front desk
Never heard back from them probably because the salary expectations that I gave is apparently too high for them (even though it already is way below the average rate for this position)
