    If u want to join HM it's ur wish ,u can get job easily and 100 % but the main thing salary is not good n after doing 12 hrs 13hrs u will get less payment.I worked in five star luxury hotel and I left my job.'m not satisfied with this industry.my opinion don't join this industry it is worst.no respect,no time for friends and family.guys hotel work is hard n mentally n physics Burdon is there bt don't think it's not safe place for girls in all five star there is full safety .it's all up to u how u r nothing else.

    This comment for all of them who is the hotel management is not good for us….
    Hotel management job is wonderful job
    I know i know the people thinking we are doing cheap job
    Bezc because you are still working like a labour not like a professional
    We are the future of hotel management
    First we want to change and we should change the hotel management
    Love our industry

    friends this is my experience in these industry which I am shareing …I Have done my bhm from Bangalore university. I spend 4 years for this I got a campus selection in leela bglore 1 month I worked then quite because we have to work like a donkey in hk . later I join crowne plaza almost 2 years I worked and later I quite due to health problem no salary hike no promotions nothing just wasted my energy . no family life also . now I am working with it sector ….. in my batch there where 35 student's in that only 2 are working in this industry rest all left so are in banking ,retail sectors now so please thing and go a head if you are really interested in bhm then go a head, and also you have a compateator like diploma students who spents 1 or 2 years and come to industry or bsc mgmt student so thing weather you need to spent 4 years for bhm its like waste of time and money ….
