Concierges interact directly with customers, patrons or visitors at an apartment complex, hospital, hotel or office building. They answer questions, provide information, extend advice or offer various services to ensure that individuals have been fully assisted with whatever help they required. Concierges will typically act as the middleman between guests and management.
Nights, weekends, holidays occasionally
A concierge will often complete his or her 40-hour workweek working 8- or 12-hour shifts. Most shifts will typically consist of early starts, late finishes and weekends – holidays are quite likely, too.
Concierges work in a diverse array of industries, including casinos, hotels, luxury resorts, office buildings and apartment buildings, so your environment can be spent in a busy setting or quiet ambience.
Annual salary estimates are based on percentile wage data collected through the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) survey of US workers.
DVM / VMD degree
No formal education is required to become a concierge.
Most employers hire candidates with a high school diploma, although a university degree in hotel management, hospitality or tourism can help you obtain better pay and employment opportunities.
There is plenty of room for growth for a concierge. After a few years of experience, you can advance to various managerial, coordination and supervisory positions.
If employed in a franchise, you could move to working in head office.
