There is no typical day at work. There is always and forever some surprise that comes up, which is the nature of our business but at Hyatt regency Reston its extreme. Management is always pushing you to do more and more, which would also be cool if your were properly compensate for it. The hardest part of my job was accepting the fact that I had to perform multiple job roles while only getting paid for one. The most enjoyable part of the job is leaving. Sorry but I had to be brutally honest.

To be far this place is alright if you are a salary worker, however, front desk, doormen, drivers, concierge and other part-time positions are push to there limits. Many of us developed foot problems from long hours of standing and lack of days off. I once worked with an employee that work double shifts all the time and hourly wage changed depending on what he did not what he was hired as.

A more relaxed and laid back atmosphere. You have an ability to work on your own pace as long as you reach your monthly goal. A lot of perks, like free stay in hotels when you go on vacation, free meals, free dry cleaning, free parking, discounted rates for hotel for your relatives. An annual Banquet event to recognized employees, annual picnic for employees and their families.

This review is for the Hyatt I worked at in Reston VA only,I worked for the Hyatt almost 15 years. They change the policies according to the situation. They allow the Controller to talk and curse at you and he is not corrected. HR is unapproachable and when you do finally get to speak to them they don't do anything about it. That being said their benefits are the best around.

Even under the high stress of a high end business hotel the staff was always able to be happy and friendly. From our temp employees all the way to the president everyone was a family.

As a banquet server on a tipical day at work, you will be faced with challenges unique to a banquet environment. Banquets differ from working in a restaurant environment, which has a menu and public clientele. Every day you will find yourself working a variety of events for a variety of guests. The first thing is the preshift with the captain, who goes over the menu, and the specifics of the funtion. Then after we have to arrange tables according to the layout specified by the party holding the banquet. We also dress the tables with linens and set them with china, silverware, napkins and glasses.
At a sit-down dinner, we deliver courses to the guests, ensuring that any pre-arranged meal selections are distributed appropriately. For buffets, sometimes dish the food out for guests or ensure that the buffet remains well-stocked.

Between courses or after the meal is finished, we clear plates, taking them to the kitchen for the dishwashers to scrape and clean.


After the banquet, servers gather any remaining plates and remove the table linens for laundering.

I learned that throughout the banquet, we are responsible for being professional and courteous to all guests. We must move quickly and work carefully so as not to drop any food or dishes.


I get alone very well with my co-workers, we do a very good teame work.

The hardest part is that we have to carrie a tray with 10 plates full of food, very heavy.

The best part is when the guests are happy and thankful.
Pros
free meals
Cons
not steady job, only when there is an event
