    I worked at Starwood Hotels & Resorts as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    gorgeous locations, excellent working conditions, helpful staff, high salary and benefits. what takes the cake is fabulous guests and hence interactions. interview process is not easy enough to get through and might take time.

    Cons

    management might not be firm and so satisfactory although not for all departments. lot of casual staff working from school and summer holidays which might affect at times.

    I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You knew the vision and goals of the company. Great employee rates on multiple properties and discounts on food and in-house entertainment.

    Cons

    My hotel was a franchise and as such had different rules but did have to adhere to corporate standards for employees. Make sure your hotel is corporate owned, you probably will get treated more fairly. Also, if a franchise make sure they have been around for awhile, mine left us with a dwindling property becuase he did not want to spend the money on upgrades that corporate required.

    Advice to Management

    Employees, especially the ones on the ground level make the guest's whole stay. We have the opportunity to handle many of the guest complaints, if we are given a fair shake, we will then do whatever we can to make sure the guest comes back.
