Q: What is it like to work in a Chinese hotel?

I've recently had a couple job offers from hotels. I would be working in a guest relations capacity, which is what I do in the U.S. currently.  Has anyone done something like this?  I have known many foreign teachers in Taiwan and China and a few business people, but never anyone who worked in a hotel so I have no idea what it would be like.  Anyone?

From what I have observed,  I think you could do better.  I wouldn't see this as any great opportunity.

I have never worked in a hotel, but have stayed in many of them here for many months straight sometimes.
I think it would depend on the hotel.  If it is a western chain (Hilton, Merriott etc.)  it will probably be ok, depending on salary and benifits.
The problem is that depending on the city, or area, many fancy local owned hotels here cater to local businessmen with KTV girls.
I met a customer relations guy once at a hotel, at a KTV I was dragged to.  The guy was from South Africa, and his job was to get whatever...ahem...the people wanted.  I had to beat him back with a stick...he was quite pushy.
I would suggest that if you are seriously considering an offer, then get an L visa and visit the hotel before you agree to anything.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
