Hyatt is looking for tomorrow's hospitality leaders—today. We have built a reputation of excellence on exceeding expectations, and we remain focused on delivering the highest-quality experience in the industry. The caliber of service, attention to detail, and consistent quality our guests expect begin and end with our employees. The Corporate Management Training Program has been designed for graduates with the great potential to become a part of our top management team and to progress rapidly within our company.
The program is designed to accommodate each individual's training needs, previous work experience, personal objectives or career aspirations and the company's professional standards of performance. Participants complete projects, converse with a Hyatt mentor, and interact with employees in every department. Being a part of this program builds relationships, cultivates camaraderie and prepares participants to be successful; a true advantage in a future career with Hyatt.
The pace of the program, which sets a challenging schedule for each Trainee, is based on two phases. The first is exposure in various departments of the hotel, typically through a rotation and then an intensive period of training focusing on the area of concentration or agreed interest. Each phase includes both hands-on practical experience as well as opportunities for the Trainee to develop people management skills in a variety of learning environments.
The length of the program will depend on the concentration and each individual's training needs. Programs vary in length from 5 to 16 months.
Management training is offered in a variety of disciplines and may vary slightly by country as described in the specific job descriptions of the available internship postings. Opportunities may be available in: Accounting/Financial Services, Catering/Convention Services, Culinary, Facility Management/Engineering, Human Resources, Rooms Operations, Food & Beverage Operations, Sales, and Spa Management.
