 Creating "heart connections" with customers,

associates and owners is the foundation for success at Meyer Jabara Hotels.
Whether a seasoned hotel professional or just beginning a career in
hospitality, experience, dedication to customer service and a spirit to serve
from the cornerstone of a future with Meyer Jabara Hotels.

Our jobs aren’t just about giving
guests a smooth check-in and check-out. Instead, we want to build and
experience that is memorable and unique. Our Guest Experience Experts take the
initiative to deliver a wide range of services that guide guests through their
entire stay. They are empowered to move about their space and do what needs to
be done. Whether processing operational needs, addressing guest requests,
completing reports, or sharing the highlights of the local area, the Guest
Experience Expert makes transactions feel like part of the experience.

 

No matter what position you are in,
there are a few things that are critical to success – creating a safe work
place, following company policies and procedures, maintaining confidentiality,
protecting company assets, upholding quality standards, and ensuring your
uniform, personal appearance, and communications are professional. Guest
Experience Experts will be on their feet and moving around (stand, sit, or walk
for an extended time) and taking a hands-on approach to work (move, lift,
carry, push, pull, and place objects weighing less than or equal to 50 pounds
without assistance). Doing all these things well (and other reasonable job duties
as requested) is critical for Guest Experience Experts – to get it right for
our guests and our business each and every time.
