I have been working at Hilton Homewood Suites full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

You meet fantastic people (particularly guests). In the extended stay hotel business, you get to know a lot of guests on a personal level, and there does end up being a lot of down time when your hotel is 40% full of guests staying 30 nights or more.

Tons of room for advancement (a lot of internal advancement, as well), and just working in ANY department of a hotel gives you experience that can be added to your portfolio. Homewood is a fantastic brand to work for, but your experience will not carry over much into other brands (full service VS limited service).

Cons

In management of a hotel, you will always be on call (24/7) and anything can happen at any time of the day. It becomes hard sometimes to make plans to go out of town on a weekend off, because you may get a phone call that draws you back to the hotel.

Also, in this industry, favoritism is a BIG deal.

Advice to Management

I work for a management company, not Hilton directly. My advice is do some research on who owns and operates your hotel prior to accepting any salaried job position in this market. Hospitality and retail will always beg more hours of you, but look into

    I have been working at Hilton Homewood Suites part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with. Had fun talking to guests and seeing the same guests repeatedly.

    Cons

    Pay rate was low. Some gossiping. Had to stick to Hilton standards. Not a lot of room for creativity.
