Fantastic place to grow
Wonderful company to work for. Was sad when the hotel was sold and changed ownership. The management was by far the best thing about working here. I’ve never had such amazing managers.

Excellent work place with great amalgamation of work life private life balance. Multi skilled team, multi ethnicity but great team work.
Best part was the team work, from members hailing from different countries I had never visited, but still bonding was for everyone to see. Language and culture were not barrier as everyone work with only one thing in mind 'Hilton Culture'. Some of the most passionate and talented team members I have seen there, always up to the task and challenges and with their most innovative ideas the problems were transitory only. Was proud to be part of the team.

Demanding
Management needs review. Priorities often changed, not always inline with best practices for Hotel. Often demands placed on staff outside of work arenas that caused uncomfortable and ill feelings towards Manager.

Work, with very little acknowlegement
Daily meeting to discus normal work issues, no acceptance of improvement. Upon termination of General Manager, entire staff worked relaxed and worked as a team

Great Company
Hilton is a great company to work for if you can get with the corporate company. If it is a franchise then it has to do more with which management company is in charge. Management companies tend to change every couple of years.

productive place with good people as co-workers
A typical day would be supervising the maintaining of the condition of the building and dealing with any repairs that were needed. The hardest part was being able to deal with the unprofessional ways of management, the best part was working with my co-workers each day. What I learned was how to be an effective leader, how to build confidence in those who were unsure and how to motivate those that I was entrusted to supervise. My co-workers were the best, there was a feel of family within the company and we all enjoyed working with one another. Management was the low point of working there, the way employees were treated and talked to was definitely not what you wanted to deal with each day.
Pros
free meals, good people
Cons
healthcare costs, moral
