    I worked at Joie de Vivre full-time

    Pros

    Working at smaller hotel will give you chances to take on responsibilities that aren't available to you at other hotel chains. Good for experience and resume. Management gives you consistent days off, which I hear is not standard in the industry. Laid back culture with low expectations, if you're into that.

    Cons

    JDV markets themselves towards job applicants as a company that provides an unparalleled work/life balance at the cost of high salaries. As a front desk agents, you get a low wages and a bad work/life balance, working varying shifts with half-hour lunches and dismal perks. You can get promoted much more quickly in JDV than in other chains, but they don't have a tradition of developing talent or formal education for a career path. HR couldn't give me a salary trajectory or a career path to the role I wanted. Because they can't develop talent, sell employees on a long term career path, or pay them livable wages, good employees often leave fairly quickly, leading to bad morale and being consistently short staffed. I developed a lot of soft skills and phone skills, but it was an unrewarding experience.

    Advice to Management

    Have serious internal conversations about how to retain more employees. Don't chalk it up to "it's the hospitality industry, there is always a lot of turnover," and call it a day.
