    I worked at Hilton Garden Inn part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing first job. Nice environment and culture. Assistant General manager and General manager were extremely nice and friendly. You could ask them pretty much anything about the hotel and they could answer you. Front desk staff was also friendly and most weren't afraid to help out the restaurant in time of need while maintaining their duties as well. Strong systems were set in place to make tear down and prep quick (except the part of needing to polish and roll silverware). Benefits were given after a period of time. 7.25$+tips at my location. Very nice location. Machines were easy to work. POS sometimes had problems, but was easily fixed by reboot. Hours were flexible. Schedule was on a weekly basis to allow easy changes.

    Overall, nice culture and environment. You weren't just someone who helped them make a profit. You were a person and you were treated like one. No one had the attitude as if they were better than someone because of their position. Customers were usually friendly and even had a couple from the neighboring neighborhoods occasionally eat there. Some people traveled for business or family, a lot, so they were pretty much regulars and they were nice. Menu was relatively small and easy to learn.

    Cons

    Inside the restaurant, there were not enough servers. Training was a bit scattered. Not all servers had the drive to polish and roll silverware, so it fell on those that had no choice but to do it. Communication between servers and chefs could've been improved. Waking up at 4 in the morning isn't very pleasant (I'm just not a morning person, but if you are go for it). High turn over rate (The amount of time I was there, most of the servers were fired except me and one other). Housekeeping liked taking wet floor signs without saying anything (restaurant only noticed when needed them). Pepper shakes were easily broken and wooden woven baskets to hold silverware were a horrible choice because they were falling apart (That's nitpicking though). Maybe a plastic basket or something a little more sturdy?

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone inside the restaurant are on the same page. Having one person serve in the morning on busy days, is not fun. Dishwasher (not the person, the machine), isn't all that great and usually left horrible spots on the glasses.


  2. "Very warm and friendly"
