So basically to start off the day at work I would go grab my shampoo conditioner body wash and cups and coffee put it on my cart and go and grab the chemicals and rags then I grab my device and check my rooms and find out where I’m at then I head to the floors and go to the closet and start stalking my cart and then I go start my rooms
Short and simple. great place to work and be. Everyone is friendly. Benefits are great.
Constant new/rotating management leaves nothing accomplished. "Just rough it out till my next job" attitude. Constant budget cutting. money saving, practices leaves a overworked, stressful feeling among staff.
I worked here for 3 years and was never able to be considered a full-time employee so I never received benefits even though I worked 40+ hours a week. The job was fun and a great summer job, but it was pretty boring during the off seasons. Overall I had a lot of fun being a Rec Attendant because I enjoy working with a wide variety of people and it was a great first job.
work life balance was the hardest part of the job.
i really enjoyed the everyone speaks to everyone workplace culture
you get to meet a lot of people from all over the world
it can be stressful job but also very rewarding
Working there as a teenager wasn't so bad. It was mainly heavy work for most of the day as we picked up beach towels and spent many hours in the sun depending on the season. You'll learn how to connect a projector and sound system while setting a projection. There will be outside companies you will assist on the other hand you can be a camp counselor that will take care of kids. One difficult thing during my time working there is having to pick up cement umbrellas and move them around the pool area. Towels will also get heavy once their wet and I definitely had back pains working for most of my time there. I made a lot of people who are still in my life now after five years. Ideally, it gives you a broad idea on how to act and be mature about having an actual hospitality job or having an attitude towards work. Which is working very hard and obliged to the work you do.
dollar buffet, three free nights at different Hyatt's, comfort country experiences.
Rooms Corporate Intern (Former Employee) - Cedar Creek, TX - 19 October 2018
Working as an intern I was able to experience the different departments within the Rooms Department. Interning at Hyatt allowed my to advance my managerial skills because the managers were good at working to foster leadership. Hyatt is a family company and the truly comes across because all employees help to support one another.
I worked really hard for the position I worked. I just wished the raise would be quarterly or even the usual 1 year mark.
I learned how to communicate guest in positive, caring way.
I went out of my way for Guest happiness during their stay at the Hyatt.
I enjoyed my hard work earned of vacation time, but what I didn't like about it was when I wanted to use it. Management wouldn't approve too much of it, even though there was empty spots on time off calendar for me to use vacation time.
The hardest part of the job was when someone doesn't work as hard as you. Person would slack off leaving you with all the work making it difficult to get the work done on time.
The most enjoyable time was during the holidays, we have special events for all Hyatt employees such as big lunches, or big breakfast, night dances, management would bring holiday treats for us to enjoy, and employees in the department would do a pot luck every once in a while. We can all play around, make each other laugh making the job fun for us to work.
Some awesome, funny, fun employess, health benefits
Pay one dollar for lunch taken out of our check, vacation time when wanted, employee slacking off, making you work twice hard giving you stress
I thought working on a golf course would be fun. I couldn't have been more wrong. The person who hired me left for a different job and the new boss was a jerk who cared about looking good to his bosses and blamed everything that went wrong on the people who worked beneath him. I almost passed out from heatstroke and was accused of being lazy. Often I would have to work until 10 pm at night and then have to come back and open at 5 am the next day because that's how the schedule was written up.
The Hyatt was a beautiful property to work and was an awesome experience for me. The management was good and so were the employees. The downside was their was no room to advance in the job and pay raises did not come very easily.
