a good place to work in, sometimes stressful but manageable. we dealt with different guest from different parts of the country. through working at the hotel, I have learned and gained a lot of experience, starting from housekeeping as a cleaner to being a linen room attendant and to front office from potter to receptionist. management was supportive of the growth, the only thing they were behind with was communication there and there, the most enjoyable part of the job was the different challenges you get each day and how we dealt with them
Pros
free lunch and free laundry for uniforms
Cons
8 hours a day

Unfortunately I am not feeling well about Hilton Hotel Durban since I was unfairly dismissed because of telling management about my feelings , from the way they treated staff

Good diversity, family friendly and customer friendly. Must be hard worker at all times and dedicated to your work. Sometimes you work extra hours which is a pain most of the time and you don't get paid for working extra hours...but if you have a passion for what you do, you don't mind working an extra mile

At Hilton it is a very fun place to work at because they make it fun to actually come to work and by that the stuff is also friendly and they make you feel at home while at work, the stuff always gets included during special events.

Hilton was my best working experience ever, The team is united and always had your back. Management always motivated and pushed staff to do better. Hilton has its own university that is online and they constantly require you to do various online hospitality courses to keep up with trends and policy. I would go back to Hilton any time.

The staff at the Hilton Hotel if you arrive and you hold senior position they team up on you and if you tell them to do things they take their own time.
