Loved my time at Hyatt

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Hyatt really tries to create a great culture and atmosphere. For F&B workers you get get much better because no mom and pop or even chain would offer these kind of benefits! Paid time off, insurance, comp & discount nights at Hyatt, education assistance. I鈥檝e worked at 2 different properties and loved them both.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Management could have been more involved

Favoritism

Too much favoritism with the management. The managers favors those people that who knows how to play political games. One time I was very sick on the job and the manager wouldn't let me go home when I had 30 minutes left with my shift.

Pros

Lunch is a $1, free laundry uniform

Cons

Short breaks

Comps are good but have to wait a year, plus hard to find once you waited

Have to wait one year to get comps and only for Full-time, Have to wait one year for a week paid vacation. HR is Horrible. F&B Managers agree to 50 hours a week. Hires inexperience managers a well to keep cost low. Staff barely sees management bc they are in office doing clerical work. More concerned about numbers on paper instead of staff. wouldn't get hired unless I opened up full availability. During covid kept occupancy high and no one monitoring masks on guests. Oh and once you get comps you need to book a year in advance bc they book up fast, then your managers don't give you the time off. Gm is great, HR male is the worst.

Pros

comps once you get them

Cons

no breaks, long hours, no coverage for breaks, lack of hands-on management

Productivity and a lot of opportunities to move up positions.

Before we start our shift, we usually have a group meeting for what will be going on that day just so everyone will be on the same page. Overall, the managers are great. They don鈥檛 look down on us, instead they ask if we need help and even awards us since we have a quite amount of meetings, weddings, conventions going on in the hotel. I enjoy working there since everyone in our team gets along very well. It鈥檚 a good work environment to be in.

Pros

Free lunches, Parking Space.

Cons

Short Breaks.

Beautiful place to work at

Days of work at the Grand Hyatt where long hours 10 o 12 hours, but they seem to go faster because I had a great team to work with and make my day go very smooth and fun, management was very supportive and helpful and anything that I needed they were there to help me .culture at the Hyatt is to give the best experience possible to their customers and also their employees , The hardest part of the job for me was going from a small resort and Lost Pines Bastrop Texas to the second largest hotel in the Hyatt I had to really get some cardio going every day walking from one kitchen to another . The most enjoyable part of this job was living in San Diego and working at the grand Hyatt it鈥檚 a beautiful facility the people are Streamley friendly and learning new cuisine because people in California eat way different than in Texas .

Pros

Free lunch, employees appreciation days

Cons

Long hours
