The Employee Experience

Award Winning Service, Outstanding Achievement.

Hilton is proud to congratulate and recognize the Hampton Bar Harbor in the top 5% of Hampton hotels, awarded for high rankings in accommodations, service, and quality. The Hampton Bar Harbor received the 2016 Hilton Lighthouse Award based on guest feedback, showing exceptional dedication to customer service and overall guest satisfaction.

Friendly. Authentic. Caring. Thoughtful.

Our commitment to customer service and obsession with the details starts on day one. We set the tone with a comprehensive orientation program that focuses on hospitality and delivering happiness to our guests. Focusing on authenticity and empathy, new team members learn that training is more than learning what buttons to push, or what checklist to follow.

Ideal Candidate

Our team is passionate about sharing their adventures with guests, exchanging ideas for hikes, biking trails, and our favorite restaurants in town. We get excited planning the perfect day trip for our guests, choosing the perfect restaurant for a special occasion, or sharing our favorite spot for pictures in Acadia.

You know you're living in an incredible place when the hardest decision you will make this week is planning the adventures for your time off. Choosing the next mountain climb, deciding to wake up early (or stay up late!) for sunrise, paddle boarding or kayaking, hiking or biking. Life Decisions.

We believe details are important, and attention paid to small things has big rewards. We obsess over the little stuff every day – our mission is bringing joy to our guests, continuously improving our team and the property in an endless pursuit of the perfect visitor experience.
