It was alright.

Front Desk Associate (Former Employee)
Cortland, NY

I worked at Holiday Inn Express part-time for less than a year

ProsIt was a paycheck. I kept my head down and did my work till I found something better.

ConsManagers were very petty. They constantly prank phone called a former employee. They also wanted to fire an employee. Instead of doing so they attempted to make his life as miserable as possible to get him to quit.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement was great at their jobs. They had your back if needed. However, far too personal/dramatic.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It's a job.

House Keeping (Current Employee)
West Plains, MO

I have been working at Holiday Inn Express full-time for less than a year

ProsFor more hours you can help in laundry. Working hours are great. It keeps you physically fit. If you aren't a social person it teaches you better social skills.

ConsThe pay is not that great. There are no benefits offered other than a vacation once you have been there a year. After a while it can start having effects on your body from doing repetitive movement. There aren't any opportunities to move up in the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees what they are worth, give them a benefits package and you will have less turnover rate for housekeepers.

Nice managers and friendly coworkers.

Guest Services Agent (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at Holiday Inn Express full-time for less than a year

ProsManagers were nice to me especially the front desk manager who trained me. They don't yell at me for my mistakes but gave me chance to learn from it by explaining how to avoid it next time. I am very thankful that I had such nice managers for my first full-time job. Most of my coworkers were funny and friendly too, I made friends with lots of them, always fun to work together.

ConsPoor pay, no benefits, no vacation for you first year, second year you get a week. I had very messed up schedule and they made me do audit with no extra pay sometimes.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay more to the hard working ones instead of pay the same to everyone. Coworkers need more vacation and benefits or they will leave sooner or later for a better offer.
