    I worked at Lodgian part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working for Lodgian/Holiday Inn I met a lot of hard working, nice people. It was my first job I was able to land after moving to the Baltimore area. The managers were not micro managers, and sort of let you do your own thing which is good

    Cons

    The management team was always being replaced by new managers. The hours were poor at times. The pay was low. I felt that the hotel was being ran on a small budget. We begged for a nice room service cart, and after months of begging we finally got one, and it was CHEAP! The new management that was brought in was not nice to current employees. It seemed like they wanted to bring in their own people at the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check in at your hotels more often. Ask the actual employees what needs to be changed. It seemed at the time like you prefer to shun the regular employees, and only talk with hotel management. You don't get any real feedback this way.

    Pros

    good opportunity for growth and flexibility with hours through college.
    able to make adequate wages through hours and tips earned

    Cons

    little reward for tenure in terms of compensation and advancement.
    don't expect to be rewarded for the time you put in or the education you've gotten besides another week of vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it takes more than another week of vacation to retain an employee that has invested themselves in your company.
    try offering competitve wages to your supervisors/middle management.

    I worked at Lodgian

    Pros

    Job not particularly complex. Good if you like interacting with and servicing guests. Working night shifts can be very quiet at times (a plus if you like that).

    Cons

    Dealing with people up all night "wilding" and disturbing other guests (if you were expecting quietness on the evening shift). Low pay of course.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think some of the guest management issues have been worked out for the better. The place I worked had an antiquated tracking and management system.

    I worked at Lodgian

    Pros

    It is a fairly easy job and is only sometimes stressful. The hours weren't entirely flexible, but concessions were made when they needed to be. My coworkers were also nice.

    Cons

    The job was sometimes boring and I didn't see much room for advancement. Also, I felt disconnected from a lot of the other departments as we didn't interact all that often. There was no importance placed on getting to know anyone other than those you worked directly with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that people who are in every position feel appreciated and valued. Also, make sure that the work place feels open and that different employees can communicate with each other.

    Pros

    Cheap hotel stays around the world! Excellent people to work with, I loved my boss! She was awesome! Meet lots of different and interesting people! Ability to eat anything in the breakfast bar! :P

    Cons

    Not so nice pay, could use benefits for all employees. Sometimes/a lot of the times guest expect more than we have ever given them. Some expected free room upgrades when they were staying for 2 weeks! And they pretty much demanded it! Unfortunately due to weak management who gave in all the time, guests figured out they could walk all over us and say, "well you did it last time!"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate the employees better!

    Pros

    Lodgian is a decent place to work - great people, job was so-so, but the pay wasn't anywhere near what the employees would like.

    Cons

    The company needs to realize that minimum wage is not a livable salary and not be so stingy with the pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay raises!
