Yeah?? you try dealing with 400 rooms of people whose minds have gone lalalalala because they are on holidays and just go werewolf at midnight to 0500 so anything goes whilst trying to audit every single transaction that happened across three bars and four restaurants plus the front desk and you have a very specific time imperative and dealing with drunken maniacs, who sometimes (twice) pull guns and shove them in your face. And prepare for Tom Jones and entourage to check in. And that's just off the top of my head.
Oh and escorting a drug dealing fsucking maniac out of the hotel who has a looooooooong criminal history and starts doing round-houses in the lift hard enough to make it seize and you seriously fear for your life because he is the most violent you've ever met and you are in a jammed lft with him for an hour while you talk him down.
There is no snoozing all night.[/quote]NOTHING you described is anything approaching management, it closer to bouncer.
Yeah? You try dealing with all that crap at once whist also being solely responsible for the lives of 5 other night staff on top. As well as the physical well being of a multi muti tens of million dollar huge chunk of realestate owned by well mannered people who could have you killed in a heartbeat. And balance to the cent every single cent that crossed it's merry way and deal with drunk insane guests at 0300 but with perfect aplomb, warriness, manners and genuine concern for them.
But still find ways to work the system while doing the job above and beyond. Because you care.
Not really bouncer terrirory. I fall over in strong wind.
