    Pros

    Very professional, thorough training, newly renovated, clean and friendly environment, very low employee turnover.

    Cons

    Parking is too expensive, not a lot of upward mobility. Managers stay forever.

    Advice to Management

    Although employees love their jobs, it was an overwhelming feeling that they felt they deserved more compensation. Some employees have worked in an executive position for over 5 years and hadn't received a one cent raise!

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Delta Hotels full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Previous to the Marriott acquisition, People Resources (HR) was always centred on keeping employees engaged and happy. There used to be many employees who had worked for the company for decades, which made it feel like working with family.

    Cons

    After the old CEO retired and the new one took over in 2012, there was a culture shift and some of the old Delta essence was lost. There used to be a lot of talk about innovation but executive leadership wasn't always behind it or willing to take risks. Salary is not competitive with the industry.

    Advice to Management

    More open and frequent communication with employees so they are aware of changes happening and direction for brand.

    I worked at Delta Hotels full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some very good staff who have loyalty & go the extra mile. My job had been year round which is good in a seasonal economy

    Cons

    Management is out of control. decisions were made like a junior high school popularity contest. The quality of employees work was less important to managers than their ability to kiss up to the bosses. Training was non existent or terrible in most cases. If managers made mistakes employees were most often selected by them to take the blame and the consequences. The managers expect loyalty from staff but do not return the gesture. Employees are constantly given more duties which cannot be properly completed to serve guests. Employee shifts are cut to save money yet managers run up expense accounts for frivolous and unnecessary reasons. In some cases employees were told to swipe out on the time clock and return to their department and complete more duties. Staff are in fear of losing their jobs. The work atmosphere is toxic.

    Advice to Management

    A strong general manager is needed to regain control of the hotel and to clear out some managers. Training of staff is very important to the bottom line in the long run. This could be a good place to work. The company values should be followed.
