    I was relocated by Hilton from Las Vegas to Florida but unfortunately the job was not what they said when I had the interview, they paid me 7 k and now I have to repay the money.

    nobody who had the same situation in the past?

    Thanks

    At least there was some money involved. When Marriott relocated me from Chicago to DC. I had to pay the whole thing myself.

    I had to sign a 1 yr contract when I had a relo with a hotel company back in the 90's.  If I left at anytime during the year I was responsible for a prorated portion of the relo costs, its fairly common to have that part of the deal.

    Could you give any less information??

    How long were you at the job for?

    Did you quit, or were you fired?

    If I gave someone money to relocate, I'd expect a return on that.

    Considering you're dealing with a corporate hotel, I'd assume that everything you need to know is in the contract.  Did you ever actually read it?

    Chefhow - That makes sense and sounds quite fair, actually.

    Im in the same situation now. I got relocated from a decent city to the middle of no where. I had to sign a contract stating if i didnt make it 1 year at the new property i would have to repay my relocation. Im dug in at six months. I keep telling myself i think i can i think i can. I have six long months to go. Im living the kitchen nightmare. Id probably be gone already but id have to repay the relocation. Like dave chappel told oprah "got you [email protected]"
