Hotel discount
Banquet Server is very labourous and sometimes stressful. Very much need to be a team player and react quickly. Team is great,but management seemed unappreciative of all of the hard work we really do.
Hard to advance as alot of higher up positions are filled by people from outside of the company.

Most people come and stay because of the awesome hotel discount

Insanely incompetent HR Dept.
Very Disappointed with the managers ability to protect employees from hostel threatening coworkers, and hr's inability to handle racial relations or see the truth from fiction. The whole do the right thing,no matter what race you are dealing with seems to allude this system. Insanely incompetent HR Dept. The crazies are running this insane asylum .....

Working here is alright
I've worked there for five years and I enjoy it but I wish the hours were most constant some weeks we have little to no work. Its hard to pay bills and have a livable wage. If we got 40hrs all the time then yes but that's never the case.

Beautiful property, great career starter in many areas of hospitality, the kind of events and team you can be proud of.
I loved most of the time I spent working at the Doubletree. If I thought I could go back one day with a title/salary comparable to currently, I definitely would. The hotel and event space are both gorgeous. The different department teams all have a fun variety of personalities that just seem to click. If you have the work ethic you can start here at entry level and turn it into whatever you want. I've never been in school (no debt!) and I left Doubletree after 5 years of learning and advancing for a job making a $50,000 salary plus large quarterly bonuses, and DT more than prepared me. I work 9-5 now M-F and my job is a total breeze. Working there was one of the best decisions I could've made! Was and always will feel like a home to me.
Pros
Free lunches, free downtown parking, great PTO and benefits, fun variety of coworkes

Was at this job 5 months before I had surgery.
Fast paced, work. However, short staffed a lot of the time. Management tried to keep kitchen staff informed as to what was happening, which was much appreciated.
Pros
Fast paced.
Cons
short staffed

Great benefits but this Hilton has no idea what they are doing.
Just work 1 day a week to claim your discount benefits. Working their anymore than that will cause so many headaches, and unnecessary stress. Management has no idea how to prepare for busy days. They rely to much on the stronger employees to make things work. Always set up for failure and always playing favorites. If you are a hard worker, expect to be overworked. If you want to fly under the radar and be mediocre, be prepared to be constantly harassed. Human Resources can't do anything but terminate employment, so if you're looking for help, you are better off going home and crying to mother about it. And remember, no matter how hard you work, you are always a failure to double tree by Hilton in Cedar Rapids Iowa.

High stress enviornment
The most enjoyable part of the job was when I got to meet the clientele. There were few occasions where I was requested to personally design a menu or perform a demonstration for guests. The personal touch always made things more valuable to me. Most days would be working in the kitchen for long hours making up for lack of staff.
Pros
Insurance benefits, Pto, hotel discount
Cons
Inefficient hiring process

Popular place but awful management
Fancy restaurant with awesome food. Management is extremely unorganized and none of them are on the same page. Turnover is super high. Great staff if you're a staff member, but as a customer you may think otherwise
Pros
Food and tips
Cons
Early morning shift hours, management and unorganization

Great management, great co-workers, ok building
The building was remodeled a few years ago, but they didn't replace the plumbing or wiring in the hotel. We had issues with drain lines cracking/ eroding and pinhole leaks in hot water supply lines. The electrical on the hotel side is having issues. The lamps and lights in the rooms are cheap and we are having to replace the switches. Thankfully management is very pro active about these issues and is willing to spend the money to repair/ replace things when they pop up.
Pros
Free lunch and/or dinner
Cons
building needs work
