    I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many opportunities to advance your career within the company. Good benefits and discounts.

    Cons

    Entry level management is expected to work long hours, which results in lower actual wage than the employees they supervise.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation for entry level management should be better to attract talent and reduce turnover. Employee moral stays low when their supervisors are constantly being replaced due to poor performance.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Be more understanding. Realize you were once in our shoes. Need to hire more people person head of housekeeping..
