    I worked at Choice Hotels

    Pros

    There is nothing to say here

    Cons

    Choice Hotels as whole do not have any standard. They want to follow Hilton, IHG without any customer base. You can't give service, when you do not make any money in Hotel..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should run the hotel and get a experience of daily issues and know the reality.

    Pros

    Not high stress. Opportunities can be there for those that seek them out and play the game.

    Cons

    Like high school some days. People who get ahead often do so via favoritism. Not a lot of talent across many areas, but that does allow some to hide and take home a check if they want.

    I worked at Choice Hotels full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get to work for an individually owned property, therefore making it a personal experience. (This can be a good or bad thing). For me it was very enjoyable.

    Cons

    Choice Hotels itself does not seem to care about the overall wellbeing of its employees, but instead only for the money they do or do not bring in. There does not appear to be any loyalty within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more for the individuals that work for you and give your company the good name it has, instead of thinking of everyone as a dollar sign. (There appears to be no loyalty).

    I worked at Choice Hotels full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is invested in your success and is willing to drop anything to help you out or teach you! It's a great way to see what it is like to work in the real world as you get your own cubicle and are invited to meetings and lunches.

    Cons

    There weren't too many downsides to speak of. Sometimes there was not enough work for you to do so you might have a little struggle trying to look busy, and the building is very cold but that's it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management was very kind and helpful to interns!

    Pros

    Loved working with line level co-workers, meeting new people from different cities. Very satisfying helping our guests and seeing them smile.

    Cons

    Ownership offers promises and never follows through. Does not give reviews, raises, promotions. Don't jump to conclusions without investigating first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give reviews, follow through with raises. Don't promise then not give it.
