    Learning the Hospitality Industry, one band-aid at a time.

    I worked at Driftwood Hospitality Management full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great assistance from corporate staff, with extreme growth potential for those that want to work for it.

    Cons

    Know the difference if your property is in receivership or owned. If Driftwood doesnt own it, then a band-aid at best is all you will get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even in distressed properties, a bit more revenue placed in will greatly increase profit margins as well as employee morale.

    I worked at Driftwood Hospitality Management

    Pros

    Company manages a diverse portfolio of property. Have some great staff in all positions.

    Cons

    They don't appear to move and provide opportunities for growth within. Old fashioned benefits and not progressive.

    I worked at Driftwood Hospitality Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Getting a paycheck which is hardly worth mentioning as you are underpaid unless you are upper management.

    Cons

    Intimidating, Condescending, Arrogant, Inconsiderate and Patronizing are just a small handful of adjectives to describe the current General Manager. If you are looking for an environment to enhance your skills and nurture additional industry education in a positive setting, this company isn't for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking down at those employees you feel are inferior to your position, pay scale and education.

    I have been working at Driftwood Hospitality Management full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Terrific support from corporate on down. Open door policy that WORKS. Room for growth and Managers willing to mentor and encourage those in their departments. Team spirit and nothing but good vibes across the board at the Sunrise property.

    Cons

    The only thing with respect to compensation I would change is the vacation time. It is not accrued during the year. You must wait one year to get paid vacation time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing so well. I am a firm believer that the GM sets the tone for the entire hotel, and Sunrise is managed exceptionally.

    Pros

    It's better than no job.

    Cons

    Management Company only cares about money. Nothing ever done to create a positive team driven atmosphere. Upper management will come on property, rip you to shreds and not even ask your name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop managing hotels.

    Pros

    great hard working people work there

    Cons

    No appreciation for hard work, never a thank you , if you go against the grain, your life is made miserable until you leave or you are let go. . The Gm and front desk manager set the precedent at the sunrise location

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you need to talk to the current employees about the working conditions at Holiday Inn Sunrise
