Tim - Deputy Manager

Tim - Deputy Manager

My name is Tim, 29 years old and live in the centre of Deventer. I have been working for Pillows Hotels since October 2017. Here I started as an itinerant worker for 3 days a week, but pretty soon the FO Manager turned out not to return from maternity leave and I gradually got more duties and responsibilities. In late summer 2020, I got the opportunity to move to Pillows Hotels in Zwolle in the position of Front Office Manager and enjoyed working there for 1.5 years. As of January 2022, I am back on the 'old' nest, but this time in the position of Deputy Manager.


I started working in a hostel as an internship when I was 15 and have worked in all types of hotels until Pillows Hotels. From hostel to 5-star and both front of house and waitressing. At some point, I wanted to work closer to home and saw that they were looking for a Front Office employee at Pillows Hotels Deventer. I chose this because the hotel and the people gave me a good feeling during the introductory interviews. The hotel is of course also in a breathtaking location. During my time at Pillows, I did the high hotel school part-time, so I was able to immediately put what I had learned into practice. Of course enormously supported by the guidance and rock-solid confidence of Miranda (General Manager). I also believe in Pillows' core values of being ambitious, doing it together and wanting to be the very best together. That makes it a great company to work for.

Why work here?

Obviously because you have the nicest workplace in Deventer! But also because you are part of a top-notch team that together, every day, is ready to offer the guests a fantastic time. No day is the same with us. From regular lunch and dinner, to weddings or our famous Dinner Cruise. Creating special moments is our focus. Of course, the many great fringe benefits are a nice bonus 😉
