Engineering / Maintenance / Facilities

< Back to Global Careers Overview

As each of the facilities owned by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. is the means through which we deliver our products and services, creating a safe environment for occupants is vital to the long-term success of our business.

The Engineering, Maintenance and Facilities departments play an important role in maintaining a safe and fully functioning facility while ensuring compliance with various federal, state and local environmental, health, safety, operating and building codes, standards and regulations.

Engineering is responsible for the maintenance and repair of the physical building and all of its features, including:

  • Day-to-day system operation and maintenance routines
  • Preventive maintenance
  • Minor and major repairs and improvements
  • Support for other operating departments and guest activities

A successful candidate is a proactive team player, able to grasp "the big picture." He or she is an effective trouble-shooter and problem-solver who is experienced with developing and managing complex improvement projects and managing and operating a large facility. The department head position carries out managerial processes including budgeting, forecasting, labor scheduling, personnel administration, work order tracking and various record-keeping duties.

Engineering department managers at the craft level have often been promoted to positions of greater responsibility by acquiring additional skills and demonstrating appropriate qualities. Other managers transfer their proven skills and experience from facility-related positions in other industries or from the construction industry. Those who make the commitment are rewarded by a fast-paced, interesting and challenging technical career within an attractive business environment.
