Enjoyable workplace with meeting various individuals with different cultures and characters, having nice and smiling colleagues, learning a lot technically, verbally with spanish languages. the crucial moments with our work when having major problems such as broken pipes and flooding the whole areas, but so Satisfying and relieving when the hardest of the job is well done at an earlier than specified time of needs.
I normally feel motivated and needed in my position which in turn makes me want to do my best at what I'm doing. I learn something new everyday and attribute a lot of my success to the trainings they have provided me.
I love that HYATT takes an interest into diversity in the work place and aa culture of luxury and excellence. I like the Hyatt Black program since they recognize the need of more black and brown future executives.
Unfair treatment based off race with current management. The previous housekeeping manager was fair to everyone.
The pay is ok but if you communicate with you guest and provide great service your tips will make up for the lack of pay.
Although, I was hired for the front desk, as well we got training as bartender, nice experience.
Even Though is small place the hotel, but there are a lot cross training, and we were training in the kitchen to prepare and cook.
Loved it there. The energy was amazing and the people made you feel comfortable. The staff was cool and welcoming the only thing is that some staff felt as though they were being replaced so the rudeness showed it there faces and how they didn't want to help. But that was a limited amount other then that loved the work environment.
The Hyatt has a great company culture! The staff is very professional and friendly. I enjoyed the ethnic diversity on the job as well and for the most part my associates where friendly and very encouraging being that it was my first experience as a house keeper
Typical work day is hitting the ground running for the 14-16 hours you're there. Hard to find a break for lunch as an operations manager. Management is quick to tell you what you did wrong rather than correct.

Overall my time at Hyatt was great. Getting the chance to meet new people from different departments was awesome. I got the chance to learn a lot of more skills such as training with front desk, learning how to greet guest and making sure what they need is provided. Most of my time at Hyatt I worked in Human Resources where I was able to help lots of employees. I learned how to answer phone calls in a professional way, faxing,emailing and scanning documents. (use of Microsoft). I also volunteered in hotel event put together.
Managers have to work atleast 10-12 hrs a day (usually ends up being longer) . Very political atmosphere, not much control over what positions you can advance too. There are a lot of opportunities, you just need to get approved. They take care of the staff well overall , short staff line employees, not replace managers ,consolidating departments and positions which increase workload but not pay.
