Applying for hotel jobs, mainly reception, front desk, reservations etc. What is the average salary range in these areas? I do have 5 yrs experience from the US.
Thanks a lot!

Thank you both. I tried Google, but in English , of course that's why I was not really able to find figures.

Re: salary for a hotel receptionist in Lausanne

Just be aware that any salaries in the hospitality industry will be akin to slave wages with long hours...

Thanks, Snoopy...Yes, i know that. Have worked in the industry for 5 yrs. Unfortunately, at the moment, as a starter in Switzerland, i really dont have too many other options...

If you don't speak any European language apart from English, then not much is the answer.

Yes, i understand that. I am learning both French and German, but at the moment I would still need at least a few months to be able to actually work in any of these languages.
So, not there yet...but hopefully, i WILL get there.
