Pros

It was great to get to meet people from all over the world that stayed there. Night shift was nice to work by myself without management there.

Cons

Had a wonderful first manager, but then they hired two young managers and they were inexperienced...tried their best though. Pay was terrible.

Advice to Management

Don't under pay your employees. $8/hr with no benefits is terrible and why there is such a high turn-over rate and hard to keep good employees.

    Pros

    Well established company. Many different things to learn from front desk, guest services, maintenance, and even auditing throughout the night.

    Cons

    As with every hospitality business a slow season can call for long hours, but this is where it pays to take the extra time to learn other facets of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Absolutely nothing because the president worked in the building with us and did everything possible to ensure the guests and employees were taken care of.


  2. Inconsistent Chain

    Pros

    I really can't think of a single Pro.

    Cons

    1. Inconsistent operation of Hotels. 2. Poor Leadership - All hotels independently Owned/Operated 3. No benefits of any kind 4. Best Western International does not support hotels - Worldwide sales does nothing to help. 5. Poor branding - General public has no idea what the difference is between BW, BW Plus & Premier.

    Advice to Management

    David Kong & board members need needs to know what is going on with the hotel brand/chain. Over all David is doing a good job - For what this brand is.
