    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good Pay Benefits Uniforms Provided (with free dry cleaning option)

    Cons

    Long hours Weekend and holidays 16 rooms to be cleaned in 8 hours... not that difficult however, management does not take into account condition in which the room is left. If a frat party has just checked out, you are expected to clean their room in the same amount of time as a single person just sleeping over for one night.
