    I worked at Historic Restoration

    Pros

    This company has excellent benefits and a family culture in its dealings with employees. While revenues and the service culture within the Hotel itself were not high enough for my own employment to be a successful and enjoyable experience, I still value and respect the efforts the company is constantly making towards growth and improvement.

    Cons

    No downside to the company itself, just a really rough transition trying to come out of a recession, upgrade the quality of the employee work ethic, while selling a clearly worn product . Lots of resistance within the existing workforce to any change or improvement at all, and alot of hostility and resentment at even the attempt. Very difficult emotional environment to deal with. Lots of "pass the parcel" going on from the bottom up...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none really at this time, change is hard, very difficult, and sometimes you just get run over in the process

    Property Management Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8+ weeks - interviewed at Historic Restoration in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    Chaos! Interviewed for one position, considered & interviewed for another (then another) finally hired for a position completely unrelated to what I interviewed for. While waiting to be hired, original hiring manager was fired and replaced, then HR Dept lost my paperwork so had to wait for that to be completed again. Then the Regional for that property quit, so had to wait for the new regional to come on board for my hire approval. New hiring manager wanted to hire someone else (her stepdaughter, no less), but VP intervened on my behalf. Interviewed with 4 hiring managers (2 regionals and 2 community), and before I even began working one of those regionals and one of those community managers were no longer with the company, so the process took forever.

    Interview Questions
    • Very few job specific questions. No scenarios asked. Questions pertaining to expected pay rate, availability, etc were the main themes   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations at all. I was originally offered a LOT more than what the final offer of employment stated. However I had been strung on for so long regarding my hire date, and I had turned down so many other offers believing HRI's promises, that I was in financial straits by the time I was hired and just happy to work. My advice would be just to run away from this company. I have been here for 18 months now and every meeting is full of new faces, the turnover is THAT bad. I am currently looking for a new job, and cannot wait to leave this horrible place.
