Salary after hotel management

Hotel management is one of the high demanded professional course in India. Everyone wants to join a hotel management course because they know, once he/she done hotel management then he/she will get a job easily. But most of them don’t know the reality about the salary of hotel management in India. I have seen many hotel management students that searching on google “Salary of Hotel Management in India”.

The reality of hotel management is something different from what people know outside. So don’t be confuse about salary after hotel management in India. I will let you know exactly how much you will get paid after hotel management.

Salary after Hotel Management

Salary after doing hotel management is a myth. Everyone thinking If you have done hotel management then you will get Rs.40,000 or Rs.50,000 per month. You will get better than this but not just after completing your course. If you want to earn good money in the hotel industry then you need to stick longer with this company.

Your salary depends on many things after hotel management like your position, Company, etc. Many of them don’t know these factors, So today I will clear this myth from your mind.

How a Company is most Important for your Salary

It is very important after hotel management that what company you are joining like five-star hotels, for star hotels, three-star hotels, etc. If you have joined a five-star hotel then you will get a low salary at the beginning but later once you get experience then it will grow much better.

But if you join four-star hotels or three-star hotels after completing your college then at the beginning you might get a better salary but later your salary will not increase as compared to a five-star hotel experience. So please think twice be before choose your property after hotel management.

How Your Position is most important for your Salary

Yes, Your position is very important, If you are looking for a good salary after hotel management. Your salary totally depends on your position. During your campus interview, you have three different options to get a better position. 1. Management Training, 2. Operational Training, and 3. Associate.

1. Management Trainee (MT) Program

If you are selected as a Management Trainee in a good property then you will have to work as a management trainee for at least 18 months and your salary will be around Rs. 18,000 to Rs. 20,000 per month.

During your training, you will work all departments available in the hotel like Front Office, Food & Beverage Service, Food & Beverage Production, Housekeeping, Human Resource, Finance, Security, Sales, and Marketing, etc.

After completing your training period you will have to clear an internal exam with HOD and Directors of the hotel.

Once you clear your management trainee program then you will get promoted as outlet Manager and your salary will increase by 20% to 30% of your current salary.

2. Operational Trainee (OT) Program

The operational trainee program is quite different from the Management Trainee Program. If you are selected as an Operational Trainee in any five-star property then you will have to work as an Operational trainee for at least 18 months and your salary will be around Rs. 16,000 to Rs. 18,000 per month.

After completing your training period you will have to clear an internal exam with HOD and Directors of the hotel.

After completing your Operational Trainee program then you will get promoted as outlet Supervisor and your salary will increase by 20% to 30% of your current salary.

3. Associate

Associate is not any program in the property, It is just a position where you will start your career from scratch level. Here you will not do any kind of cross-training to a different department, you will just work in your core department.

If you will not get any program like MT, OT then this is the opportunity for you.

Here your promotion depends upon you like how fast you learning the things, and how fast you are implementing yourself. If you learn within a year then you have an opportunity to get promoted within a year.

Your salary will be very low as it is a scratch level job but this is a golden opportunity to work with class management in the industry. Your average salary may be between Rs.10,000 to Rs. 12,000 per month.

After doing Hotel Management you have many career opportunities like Hotels and Restaurant, Aviation, Railways, Sales and marketing, retail, Cruise Ship, etc.

Hotel Manager Salary

In India or anywhere in the world hotel manager salary depends upon the categories of hotels like is it a five star or four-star hotels.

An average salary of a Hotel Team is:

General manager is approx Rs. 2 lac to Rs.6 lac per month.

Food and Beverage Director is Rs. 1 lac to Rs. 3 lac per month.

Executive Chef is Rs. 1 lac to Rs. 3 lac

In a month you have an opportunity to earn between $2400 to $3200 per month. In some case you can earn better than this or maybe lower than this, It all depends upon your talent and skills.

Is Hotel Management is a Good Opportunity in India?

Hotel management is a high demanding course in India because of the job opportunity in hotels. It is true if you are a hotel management student then you will get a job very easily.

But salary after doing hotel management is not really good compare to other job opportunities. Overall I can say it is a better opportunity but not really good opportunity in India.

But yes Hotel management is a good opportunity in the US, Canada, Australia, etc.

I will not suggest to choose hotel management as a career because many reason like If you choose your career in hotel management then:-

  1. You will not get time for your family in the future.
  2. There is no social life after doing hotel management.
  3. Lots of work in the hotel.
  4. Late hours you will have to work like 12 to 18 hours per day.
  5. You will wake up early and sleep late at night, It may cause of your mental and physical harms.
  6. You will have to work at your favorite festival.
  7. It’s very hard to find a better opportunity near your home.
  8. You will have to compromise with your weekly off, like if the hotel is busy then they will say work whole week without off.
  9. You will get paid very less according to your work.
  10. There are many more reasons why you should not join hotel management as a career. Comment me below for any assistant.

Cruise Job Interview Questions and Answers by Nbcruiser

Here I try to cover all the Cruise job interview questions and answers which is possible to asked by interviewers, If I miss anything please let me know. I will not go with technical questions by department wise but yes I will try to mention the most common.

Q.1. Tell me about yourself.

Answer. You just need to brief yourself in short, crisp, and clear. The Interviewers want to know how you can describe yourself.

  • Start with your name,
  • Give your place information,
  • Education details but in short,
  • Job experience if any,
  • Family detail in short.
Tell me about yourself

Now you can make your answers accordingly, I believe these point will be very easy for you to make your entroduction. If the interviewer wants to listen more then you can tell about your weakness, strength, your hobby, etc.

Q. 2. Why do you want to work with Cruise Line?

Answer. Before your interview you need to google about the company, you just need to know about what the company is, when to build, where is the head office, who is the founder and CEO, etc. After that while giving the answer of this question you need to focus on:

  • You need to explain what you like about Cruise Line,
  • Relate it to your long term career goal on Cruise ship,

You can connect your feeling with this company and tell them “It will be a golden opportunity to be a part of Cruise Company like yours. When I google about the company I found that my skills matching your requirements, Where I can enhance my technical skills to contribute to the company growth”.

When you answer like this, I am sure the interviewer will think twice about you that you are the candidate who is thinking about company growth first then yourself.

Q. 3. What are your strengths?

Answer: All the companies want to know about your strengths and how your strengths will be beneficial for that company. So while giving such kind of answers you need to mention many points which is very common in everyone like:

  1. Honest: you can say you are very honest with your company and with your work.
  2. Self Motivated: Here you can say I am self-motivated.
  3. Hard Working: you can say that I will work with dedication and determination.
  4. Flexibility: It means you are very flexible to work with any location, any situation, and any environment.
  5. Optimistic: It means you have a positive attitude.
  6. Persistence: It means you are regular in your work.

Now you can give 2-4 examples to your interviewers which is most common in you. I believe these qualities are found in everyone.

Q. 4. What are your weaknesses?

Answer: This also a very important question in which interviewers want to know your weakness because your weakness can affect the company profile or your job profile. They may not hire you so while giving such kind of answer you can include some positive points, even it is a weakness but it should be positive.

  • I can cot say no when someone asks for help.
  • I trust people very quickly.
  • Straight forward.
  • Get nervous when talking to strangers.
  • Take the decision very quickly.
  • To speak lies is difficult for me.
  • More talkative

We all know, more than 90% of companies are selling only two things, one is their service and another is their product.

Q.5. What are your career goals?

Answer. 8 out of 10 interviewers will ask you about your goal and when you want to see yourself after a certain period of time. So while giving such kind of answer you need to be given only:

  • Short term goal and
  • Long term goal

For Example: “My future goal is to be during a respectable position therein organization” and My short term goal is to urge employment during a reputed company where I can utilize my skills and knowledge”.


Q.6. Why are you looking for a job change?

Answer. The Interviewer wants to know that why are you living your current organization and what is the reason behind your job change. So well see some point here while giving such kind of answers.

  • Always thanks to your previous organization.
  • Explain what you learn from your previous job experience.
  • Relate it to your career goals.
  • Share your reason for job change.

Like: “I am very thankful to my previous company because I have learned lots of things from there. According to me, change is necessary for everyone to enhance your skills, knowledge, and personal as well as financial growth. And your organization is a very good platform where I can learn more”.

Q.7. What do you know about ____Cruise Line?

Answer. Before you give such kind of answer you need to google these points:

  • Study about the company in brief.
  • Name the name of Company owners and CEO.
  • Research about company current issues.
  • Study about their competitors.

All the above points you can find on google and make sure while giving such kind of answer you need to be very confident and polite.

Like: “It is one of the fastest-growing comping. The work environment of the company is also very good. People feel very proud to be part of the company, As a company provides full support of their employees in the professional front”.

Q.8. What is your expectation with our company?

Answer: This the most important point for you because if the interviewer will thing this candidate is good for the company then they will put you this question. So while giving such kind of answer you need to remember a few things:

  • Never share your salary expectation if you are a fresher because it might be you do not your market value.
  • Experience candidate can share their expectations, If you have some experience then you are free to share what you expect from this company.
  • Always says as per the company norms. Either you are a fresher or Experience because every company has its own salary structure.

Like: “If you are a fresher- I am a fresher and salary is not my first priority. This is really a big platform to start my career and I also want to improve my knowledge and gain experience. so my expectation is as per company norms which help me to maintain my economic needs“.

If you have experience: “I have 5 years of experience in ______ and my current CRC is 5LPA, Salary has never a big issue for me still I am expecting as per company norms as per my designation, my qualification, and my experience. Which can help me to maintain my personal and financial needs“.
