Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

After 3 months of employment, they offer full benefits (medical, dental, vision, vacation, PTO, 401K, stock sharing, etc).

Cons

The job itself is horrible, especially if you have a college education. The duties are inane, and there is a lot of stress to meet your quota for reservations.

Advice to Management

Change the way supervisors talk to the associates; if it's "coaching," make it more of a coaching session rather than a parent lecturing a child, which is what it felt like.

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

    Pros

    My boss was more than helpful throughout my internship and exposed me to the hotel industry. I worked at a remote location but I was in constant contact with headquarters in Great Plains, NY. Worked on one project for sales training the entire summer

    Cons

    Sales office is small and many associates were traveling so did not have much opportunity to get to know the people in the office.
