    Lots of fun for little pay...

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee) Omaha, NE

    ProsVery fast paced environment and some great people that you work

    ConsThe pay was the worst. Being a manager and making less than $2 more than the general team members was quite discouraging.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Former HQ Employee - over 10 years service

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIn my case smaller corporation presented many opportunities to learn and hone skills that eventually enabled me to find a job in a larger corporation with opportunity for advancement and much better pay and benefits.

    ConsWorkplace rules are not enforced equally. Senior/Upper management does not value the average worker and comments are made about why does the company need to provide benefits to the average, lower paid employee despite public comments that "employees are our greatest asset"..

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou wouldn't be where you are without ALL of your employees.

    If your not getting tips or not in corporate then your being used

    Server (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsThe management more or less does not micromanage and has some good benefits. They do have a free cafeteria in most hotels which is really a great thing.

    ConsThey don't pinch pennies but they do pinch nickels. They are very cheap and pay below average for most employees. They need to care more about their employees and try to help them in their career.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate is way to large for such a small company. Please remove unnecessary people and make it less top heavy and pay your average worker more.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Mindless work for just over minimum wage

    Cashier (Former Employee) Addison, IL

    ProsFree movies, popcorn, and drinks are a great perk for the high school aged kids who work there. Ushering (cleaning theatres, ripping tickets) requires pretty much zero cognitive ability. Working in the concession stand requires a little more since you're handling money. And working the box office you handle a lot of cash.

    ConsStart at minimum wage. Get a 25cent raise after one year. After that pretty sure the raises get smaller and smaller. If you're seasonal and making more than minimum wage, then minimum wage goes up to be higher than what you were making, your hourly wage only goes up to what the current minimum is once you come back, even if you've been there for years. You don't get much of a boost for supervising or managing, either. Wearing a tuxedo (as everyone who isn't a manager is required to) is also pretty lame. Hypocritical middle management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote based on competency and good leadership skills, not based on those who suck up and are good at nitpicking.

    Good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Addison, IL

    ProsGreat employees to work with, customers are ok. The benefits are very nice, free movies and popcorn and drinks. I would recommend it for a part time job.

    ConsThe pay is very low, usually minimum wage but depending how long you have worked there possibly slightly above

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is very poor. If communication between the managers and the regular staff was more clear and encouraging then they could get much more out of what they have.

    Family company that moves very slowly

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPace of work is reasonable

    ConsDecisions are not made quickly and require approval at higher levels than should be required

    Decent Hourly Job

    Room Service (Current Employee)

    ProsMy position has a good amount of freedom to it. Much of the time is spent roaming the halls looking for dishes to pick up.

    ConsThere is good deal of walking involved, so if you're not able to do that, this would not be a good job for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe only advice I have is to better communicate with the employees. It is not uncommon to receive different directions from two different managers, and figuring out which

    You must multitask the entire shift. It is a very stressful and busy job.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood benefits and they are flexible with your hours.

    ConsNot much support from the management. No sick days paid, if you ill you won`t get pay for nothing. No bonuses and no raises on your 1 year review.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more managers, the Hotel is understaffed.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
