    I worked at Hyatt

    Pros

    good relationships with employees
    meeting about changes, issues and congratulations
    good help
    recognition of employees

    Cons

    no training for casual staff
    no explanation
    not well recognize as other staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make more things for casual because even if they are not working a lot they need to learn and make a good wprk when they have shifts so only on the job training could be hepful and interesting
