Only negative is you have to fight for your bonus and commission checks, if you are not involved daily in your sales numbers you will never hit the goals they set. Managed extremely well and workplace culture was wonderful.
Management is not there to help you succeed, they only worry about theirselves and no one else. You think they have your back, but they don’t. They will throw you under the buss faster than you can say your name.
Great opportunity for advancement within the company. I was promoted within 6 months.
Great staff and family like atmosphere. I made friends for life. If it wasnt for hurricane Florence and the hotel closing for renovations, I would still be there.
Employees come and go as quickly as the turn of a revolving door
Leadership needs training on leadership

It is not a corporate hotel so be aware there are 3 masters: the flag, the owner and the management company

I love working at the DoubleTree. They really care about every team member. They are more than fair. They do a lot of community service. It is also a beautiful property that is highly awarded and ranked. I do sales and it is fast paced and a heavy volume.
The work environment was fun, yet professional. Each individual operational branch worked well individually of the others. The biggest issue is a lack of unity among all of the various branches within the property. This fundamental operational imbalance is pervasive in virtually every industry and any company I have ever worked for. Overall, this place is no worse than any other. There are some definite perks to working here and for the hospitality industry as whole.
New owners and management company took over and department managers were removed and replaced. The Sales Department became a personnel of one DOSM, one catering manager, one sales manager and one sales coordinator selling 13,000 square feet of meeting space and 171 guest rooms. With the Sales and Catering team reduced in half, it was impossible to take care of our guests stay and clients' events accordingly.
Many of the associates have worked at the hotel over 20 years.
Reduced in staffing in many of the departments, especially in Operations.
The DoubleTree Orlano Airport was a wonderful place to work. It was a fast paced hotel with several airline crew staying at the hotel. In addition it had great meeting space for groups under 300 people.
The clients liked the shuttle service for their group attendees. I would have stayed had they not sold the hotel.
Great company to work for over 15 years to different capacity but most recently past (4) years on task force and opportunity to join corporate task force for Hilton. Conrad Hilton had a vision and I hope everyone who works under the Hilton Flag believes and feels the passion as much as I have!
I'm not sure about the housekeeping or maintenance staff, but the office and front desk staff is so dramatic and catty, it was impossible to do your job well. If you're a black sheep, don't bother working here, you'll be miserable.
