    I worked at Ayres Hotels full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pros – Great employee rate on hotel rooms. Learn about customer service. Great team environment and plenty of opportunity to learn more about the industry. Gave me my start in the Hotel industry.

    Cons

    Con- I had my review and scored very high and all I got was a good job. The company is great but very cheap when it comes to raises and growth potential. Advancement is difficult because it such a small company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunities for staff to advance and benefits of working in this company.

    I have been working at Ayres Hotels part-time

    Pros

    Very family oriented
    Free breakfast
    Easy to promote/sell because of the amenities, location of the hotel and great rates
    Promote from within (but not a lot of positions available to be promoted into...)
    Senior Management (Family Owners) do a real good job at remembering your name and will make an effort to greet you every time they visit the property so make sure you maintain a good reputation!

    Cons

    There was a very long period of time where supposedly no one got raises and there was a "freeze". I had my review and scored very high and all I got was a good job. I did not feel appreciated whatsoever. The company is great but very cheap when it comes to money. They are often understaffed so when you would call in sick or wanted a day off, it was really hard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation to your employees, have "Employee of the Month" (or of the Year) awards -- not only for certain departments, ALL departments. Give bonuses to front desk agents as they are usually the first in line to take the hit when angry guests approach them.

    I worked at Ayres Hotels

    Pros

    The staff was extremely friendly and instantly welcomed me into their family. Management was very approachable and very good about keeping you up to date about changes and congratulating you on accomplishments

    Cons

    As a starting position in the Phone Operation area, slow hours would go by verrry slowly if you had completed all of your tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that employees know everything there is to know about reservations and checking people in. I needed more practice checkign people in before actually handling guests.

    Small Hotel to Gain Experience

    I worked at Ayres Hotels

    Pros

    It was nice to work at a smaller hotel to gain experience in the industry. The company acts as a community toward its employes and I would definitely work there again.

    Cons

    Unfortunately there are only a few job openings because it is a small hotel chain so you either have to leave the company or are forced to be patient and hope something will open up for you to move up.

    I worked at Ayres Hotels

    Pros

    Nice hard working line staff but that's about it. Some the properties are nice

    Cons

    GMs at certain properties lack refinement, are uncouth and somewhat dense. Makes you wonder how they got the job. Must be friends of the owners. There is some hint of racism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're wondering about your bottom line, take a look at upper management. Mainly at your GMs.

    You will gain a lot of experience and have the chance to figure things out for yourself.

    The training lacks in detail and consistency.
