These part-time opportunities can be found in many hotels and generally carry similar titles to those listed above. In hotels, standards and service rules for hospitality are at stake when hiring anyone who meets the public on site. Four- and five-star hotels come down to a commitment of luxury and attentive service. These two concepts are the focus of very elite hotels. If the hotels are graded on the AAA standards and service scale, they are awarded diamonds. This means a four- or five-diamond rating is the sign of a very attentive and luxurious hotel. These types of positions require good customer service skills, especially in a four- and five-star or diamond facility.

If you are looking for a job in this area, search under the hospitality heading. Searching for ''standard and services in hotel jobs'' takes you to similar listings. The hotels are great places to work if you are very friendly and like meeting people. If one enjoys showing new people around the city or town, then look into hotel jobs in hospitality. The people one meets are from every walk of life and are often from different countries. Sports teams often travel and stay in luxury hotels. Entertainers and other professionals might be passing through. When tourist season is at its peak the hotel will be buzzing. Customer service is in high demand. The more flexible an employee can be in this job to help out a customer that seems a little lost, the more that employee is appreciated by the customers and his or her employer.

The amenities at a hotel can often be fringe benefits to the staff when the hotel slows down. Many hotels have beauty services and spas that might be offered to staff during the low season. Sometimes meals are offered at a reduced cost or even free if you are required to take lunch or dinner on site. There are usually swimming pools at the hotel and often nightly entertainment. Breakfast is typically wonderful at hotels. Mornings are a busy time of the day in hotel life as everyone is checking out to be on their way somewhere else.

There is a lot to be said for working in a hotel. It is a great place to work. Visit the hotel which holds your interest. Sit down and watch the check-ins and check-outs. See how the concierge and the bell desk work. Visit the restaurant and have a cup of coffee. How attentive is the wait staff? Talk to an employee and ask how he enjoys his job at the hotel.

If you want a job where you can later move up in status, a hotel is a good place to start. Something interesting is always happening.
