Work-life balanceWork-life balance at DoubleTree by Hilton is not bad. When it's busy you work long hours but when it's the slow season you can take it easy and take some PTO. The only downside to that is that you could only really take vacation when it's really cold or really hot.Pay & benefitsMy pay and benefits at DoubleTree by Hilton are not great. The salary was low and you had to count on your bonus. If the hotel wasn't making money then your bonus was low. Medical benefits were ok but a 401k was non existent.ManagementIn general, managers at DoubleTree by Hilton for the most part didn't really know what they were doing and they made decisions based on favoritism.

Leadership has no respect for food & beverage. The turn over in the executive chef position says it all. Six executive chefs in 3 years is excessive
Pros
None
Cons
No respect

After 30 years with Hilton I left the company to move to another state. I would work for Hilton again if and when the opportunity presents itself. Thank you for 30 great years...

Hilton has good standards for operation and customer satisfaction. However, my property was managed by an independent corporation that out it's own goals before employees.

Was a great fun place to work and then the GM relocated and the new GM did not believe in teamwork or taking care of the employees or guests. Was the place to do your banquets until the change in management.

At the hotel I had good and bad experiences the cookies they give you are amazing and the staff is very friendly. The food was great especially the shrimp and grits and the bartenders were nice. It is hard to fine good cooks, and the unoces that are good don't last. The equipment is old don't woark all the time. Two years waitting for new equipment and never got it.

In starting, I had experienced three kitchen inspections in my first three weeks of employment ranging from the Bexar County Health Department as well as quality control teams from the corporate headquarters. I inherited a filthy kitchen and had to work very hard to bring the cleanliness and sanitation up to company standards. It was hard work but I managed to get great scores per the inspections.
Pros
Nice, professional people to work with.
Cons
Lack of enough staff.
