    Pros

    Really enjoyed the property and managers of the hotel, the company itself is very old school and isn't great at employee appreciation

    Cons

    JQH is very behind the times. No holidays off. If hourly employees work on holidays they don't get pay and half. Benefits are terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Property management in Hampton, VA is great and really cares about their team members.

    Interview

    Phone interview, followed by face to face meeting, with cooking test and tour of the hotel. Final interview with general manager. Once in the company, interview is basically just a conversation between co-worker to see if you would be a good fit with the new hotel. Less examination of you credentials and ability.
