Building was constructed with lots of compromises. No service elevator No enough space for staff No easy access for staff entry or exit The no of rooms are way higher than compared to elevator for the guest
Double tree hotel was a family oriented work environment.The majority of the employees have been there past twenty years.We did enjoyed the medical benefits,the camaraderie among the managers and the employees.My peers and I are extremely sadden that it has closed ,it has been the best 20 years I have ever worked.
A typical day at work double tree fun I have to be first at work with my manager to set up coffe bars arrange seats and sitting areas and help the cheff with cooking items by preparing food items for cooking and clean and wash dishes
The good things are that we can leave right away after you finish cleaning the rooms. The bad things are that the elevators there break very often. Another bad thing is that there is no free lunches for employees.
Working at the Double Tree Hotel surrounds the guests and workers with an ethnic diverse group of people. Its fun to experience other cultures, backgrounds and religions. I enjoy working special events and the guests that participate. It is a great amount of set up and clean up, but very enjoyable during events. sales and service always enjoyable
This place is great to work at if you like being in the hospitality industry and climbing that particular corporate ladder. Work/life balance is pretty bad though because this place expects you to stay for far longer than what your allotted hours are supposed to be and they won't pay you overtime unless the GM approves. People can be awful and those who you thought were your friends may not end up being your friends. Managers are quick to throw others under the bus if it conveniences them rather than take the blame or try to work it out.
Free lunches for managers, paid holidays, discount hotel stays
long hours, people definitely show their bad side.
My typical work day at the Doubletree as a houseman, starting my day with a smile, greeting everyone and seeing if anyone needs any help with anything. Being enthusiastic and eager to learn new things got me promoted to housekeeping supervisor.
The hardest part of my job was understanding the housekeeping ladies. As time went on I was able to develop good relationship with them. The most enjoyable part was meeting and interacting with different people. I enjoy meeting new people and making sure my staff and guest feel good. Hospitality is me.
I loved my experience at the double tree. Having the opportunity to help open the hotel and get it up to guest standards for the grand opening was a great achievement to me. Being able to provide guests with amazing service to meet their every needs.
Wonderful guests and an awesome group of team memebers to meet hues needs.
New agency and a more military feel between housekeepers and managers. Minimum unity
Hilton Double tree has very high standards which I thrive for trying to better than the next hotel PM programs and renovations are my specialty. I always keep a safe environment for the guest and staff.
