In honor of Mother’s Day, meet Louise & Leticia Ortega, a mother-daughter pair who have worked at Hyatt Regency McCormick Place for a combined total of 21 years! Louise is a Senior Front Desk Agent/Control. Leticia began as a Front Desk Agent, then Senior Agent, and is now the hotel’s Banquet Coordinator. We had the opportunity to ask them a few questions:
What is your favorite thing about working for Hyatt?
Louise: Family matters with Hyatt, and the company really cares about their employees. They are also big on promoting within the company first.
Leticia: I always get to meet new people. I feel like every day is a new experience.
What do you enjoy about working with each other?
Louise: I like getting to have lunch with my daughter and catch up on what is going on in each other’s lives. Sometimes I can even get a ride home instead of taking the train…if my daughter is not having a bad day 🙂
Leticia: I love knowing that at the end of the day, there is definitely one person in this company who is always going to be rooting for me to succeed. I love having her to understand all of my stories about work, and even sharing a lot of the friends that I have made in this company. Except of course when my friends tell me that my mom is cooler than me 🙂
What are your plans for Mother’s Day?
Louise: Relaxing and spending time with my sisters and daughters.
Leticia: Brunch at a local restaurant followed by lots of relaxing on my couch!
