Front Desk Agent/Night Auditor

Hilton Garden Inn Anchorage, Anchorage, AK



Posted November 14, 2017 R-132163

Checking people in and out three days a week. It’s a no brainer, right? Often the first encounter, you understand that your interaction can set the tone for the entire guest experience and potentially impact the entire brand! Your genuine warmth and helpful nature enable you to rise to every occasion, from cheerfully greeting the excited family on a vacation adventure to handling the travel-weary guest’s request with prompt courtesy.

Two nights a week you’re like the super hero of accounting. You arrive in the night, dive deep into the books, and reveal anything out of place. You leap to the front desk, attending to that travel-weary guest. And with accurate precision before the sun rises, you draw a clear picture using the night’s data for the new day’s action.

As a Front Desk Agent/Night Auditor with Interstate, you’ll have many opportunities to brighten someone’s day or night!
