The next story in our Meet the 2014 Quarter Century Club series comes from Lourdes Calvo, Housekeeping Coordinator at the Fifty NYC!
I remember when I started at the Fifty NYC, August 3, 1989 as a Room Attendant. My first job in this country, I was so nervous not knowing what to expect. I never did this kind of work before, it was a challenge but everyone gave me a chance. Ten months later the GM at that time called me in and offered me the position of Housekeeping Coordinator where I remain today.
I came to work shaking, facing my new position. After work my friends and family as me how it was, I said “a piece of cake”. I am so grateful for the opportunity this position gave me, the ability to raise my children in this country, who graduated college and are successful today. This is my home.
