I recently started working as a front desk agent at a hotel because I'm interested in pursuing a career in hospitality. I have a bachelor's degree but lack hotel experience and was wondering if there's any other type of entry level position within a hotel that can provide me more of a challenge? Is it pointless to work in such a low-paying position, will it eventually pay off if I work really hard at it? Thanks!
I am very interested in working at a hotel, particularily with guest services. I would like to know what expierence I need. I currently only have 3 years of cashier/customer service at a Pharmacy/Convenience Store, and I am worried that most hotels will want expierence as a Front Desk Agent. How do I get into this business and what kind of information would I put on my resume? Should I follow up after I hand in the resume?
I was thinking about getting a job as a Front Desk Agent at a hotel, and was wondering how much money do they earn?
If a front desk agent worked at a hotel of 117 rooms how much would they get paid every two weeks?
What type of pay do front desk agents or receptionist get working at places like Aria, MGM, Planet Hollywood, or any other resort on the Strip? or what some other decent paying jobs working within a resort?
Would have most likely start as a front desk agent or what would be most likely?
I shouldn't say NO experience, I worked at a hotel for 6 months a couple years ago but it closed and I lost my job. I really liked the field and that's why I'm thinking about pursing a degree in hospitality.
I have no experience in office Jobs.I was a front desk agent for years.
I will be looking for work either in a coffee shop, bar or as a front desk agent in a hotel. My boyfriend will want something manual. THANKS!
I was terminated for job performance on Tuesday. Well it appears that my general manager had told the front desk agents working Monday night that I was being fired the next day. Is the general managerallowed to tell the other employees before the employee who is bbeing terminated?
I go to a junior college and it's not really a place to make friends...people just turn out to be acquaintances

I don't want to be a server or bartender or restaurant jobs so don't say that
just something i can get into rightaway
I am starting training next week at a new Hilton Embassy Suites for front desk associate. What are the PROS and CONS for someone who has experience with this? I am very excited! But I hear it is a difficult job, any one who can give me a more inside look to this job would be very helpful!
I applied for a job at the Holiday Inn as a Front Desk Agent but I have no idea what to wear. How am I expected to dress, a nice blouse and pants etc or can I wear jeans, a cute top, and some flats? Unfortunately all I do have is jeans, somewhat nice tops/blouses, and a pair of flats. Am I completely screwed...
And any advice on the interview?
I work as a front desk agent so I'm either standing or sitting. It's not a very active job. Anyone know exercised I could do while sitting or even standing? Might sound stupid but I'm looking to lose weight so when I work till 11pm at night, I don't feel like heading to the gym for an intense workout after.
I want to work as an airline front desk clerk or agent. I have 3 years customer service experience (bartending), im getting my associates degree this semester, and I am trilingual.Am I qualified enough? If so then how do I go about getting a position? Thanks for any responses.
Some said that the offer for Receptionist/Concierge in malls are way higher than the one in hotels? I am a fresh graduate of tourism and I want to have a salary range for the said position and also for Front desk agent. Thank you :)
Is McDonalds good work experience for a recent college graduate such as myself? I just graduated from college a few months ago. Like everyone else, I’m having a hard time finding a job in my field. I graduated with a bachelor degree in hospitality management. I have very little work experience. I did two internships during my school years. I worked for a marketing firm for 3 months and for a hotel as a front desk agent for 6 months. I got a job at McDonalds two months after my graduation because I wanted to do a 3 day part time in order to make some money on the side until I find a job in the hotel field like I want to. My question is do you think the work experience from McDonalds will be helpful? A crew member has to deal with the public just like a hotel front desk agent. They have to provide good customer service, interact with a diverse group of customers, handle the register, work fast pace, multi task, handle cash, and be a people person. The hotel field is a little similar because front desk agent has to provide good customer service to the guest and they work at the front desk dealing with a diverse group of people. Do you think I can transfer this experience to my field? Should I add it to my resume since I had been working for McDonald's for almost 7 months?
