Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A typical day as a Royal Service Agent at The Savoy is very broad. You have to deal from complaints to good feedbacks from your guests whilst dealing with the daily task as well as delivering luxury high standards such as FORBES and LQA. The managements is well distributed as everything is tracked down to make sure we enhance a wonderful journey for our guests from the beginning to the end. However the hardest part of the job is dealing with little tasks that comes out of the blu when on a busy day, as you do not want to upset anyone. However, there is always time for a fun moment when guests enjoy talking to you or when you correctly deliver what they have asked for with the highest standards.

Pros

Discounts in the venues

Cons

Shifts timing - very variable

This place is the definition of "standards"

Great managers , great place but a hard job . This place can teach every of us what`s mean "standards" and "professionalism". Is exactly what you can expect from an expensive 5 stars hotel but with a plus of style.

Good place to work.

Good place to work. I started there when i moved in London. The system is organised, the employers can take the information what they need easily. If you are work or start as a beginner they give it to you training.
