    Former Employee - Third Cook 
    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    Good pay, steady raises, lunch made (need to pay for if not kitchen staff).

    Cons

    Work environment is very competitive, can be harsh. Benefits are only after a certain amount of days in the past 3 months, so very hard to obtain if you're working in banquets (hotel banquets die in the summer and January- March).

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

    Pros

    Helps you handle future stresses at the work place

    Cons

    There would be many: 1) Lack of stable management. 2) No standard operating procedures. 3) Advancement not based on previous experience but on the current supervisor. 4) Two distinct camps - Union & Management. Not working cohesively. 5) Band aid on problems, no long term HR solution. 6) Very stressful work environment. 7) Surprisingly inhospitable staff for a hotel.
