Overall not a bad place. The general manager was not good bit the front desk management and employees were fun to work with and was productive to work with.
They're not giving you a stress but they will enhance your skill by helping and being a really good co-worker. Working in the kitchen is always challenging but only when you have trustworthy teammate, you can overcome.
Great working environment. Respect everyone.
You need to work alone with efficiency sometime.
Lack of Management. Most Days Manager never is there. Supervisors have no Knowledge or training as Cooks. Supervisory Spots are Unfilled intentionally. Typical Work day is Understaffed, Day shift is Understaffed. Cooks are required to also do Prep, check in and put away Truck, and do dishes. Night shift not required to help do work. Equipment is falling apart. Vital Equipment is nonworking and not replaced. Some broken for half a year or more. No chance to promote from within. Pay is not on scale to experience.
In general it was good to work there. They gave me a huge opportunity to learn and I appreciate it. I worked day and night and I learned every menu. I don't like working at night. Sometimes the kitchen was not very tidy, I like order and cleanliness.
No healtcare, no benefits, no vacations.
Great place to work, a Marvelous work environment. Great benefits,.Lot's support from the management. All co-workers are very nice and supportive, they all help one another, great teamwork. I think DT is a place where everyone should have the chance to work to feel how things are done between employees and management. It was a great experience work at DT. I will never forget how I was treated there by my co-workers and Management.
I have 19 years of relevant experience in the field of baking and cooking. Having already held similar positions in the areas of Bakery-Pastry and Cook, I have acquired the skills necessary for this position i have in double tree by Hilton . I am available to work immediately and consider myself to be a dynamic individual. I am dedicated professional, committed to providing high quality, friendly and timely service with clientele.
The banquet food is the worst i have ever seen and the food and beverage director is not open to ideas to fix it. I was hired in to be a supervisor at 50 cents less per hour than i was told. Nice place to work if can ignore the food quality and ignorance of the food and beverage director, in witch I (a classically trained chef) cannot.
Pay is good for people with less experience
Drama, no healthcare benifits and very poor food quality
I do not recommend working for double tree by Hilton when it's associated with porters steakhouse in Collinsville. not a work environment that is positive, welcoming, or appreciative of hard work. incredibly stressful and absolutely NO accountability OR consequence for the daytime crew and their complete lack of preparation for the evening crew. A COMPLETE management overhaul of the staff, (except one individual) needs to occur as well as the COMPLETE remodeling/cleaning of the ENTIRE hotel is DESPERATELY needed.
I'm a veteran with a mental disability so I'm not supposed to be under too much stress, sometimes this job is a bit too much for me, but I'm persistent and endure to get my job done. I'm ready to move on to something better, besides cooking that's why I'm learning Information Technology.There are a lot of good people working here. The hotel has a lot to offer, but the bigger percent of the old staff have moved on, and the new need to learn better people skills, and learn more about their positions of what is immediately important and what is not. The first year working here was fun and I'm going on three years now.
Free lunches, paid time off, yearly raises, benefits.
stressful work environment
This place doesnt provide uniforms,no paid time off!, Very very low pay! Full time employees were given 4 days off and scheduled only 5 working hours per day,stay away!!!Alway short staffed.The owners are greedy they make alot money over charging for banquets but wont pay staff! They reuse food from old banquets for new banquets! Gross!!
