Fun, but bad management.

I have been working at Candlewood Suites part-time for less than a year

Pros

Get to meet a lot of people.
Relaxed, ever changing environment. Sometimes fast, sometimes slow.

Cons

Bad Management.
Lack of Supplies.
Inability for management to respond to customer requests and that makes us at the front desk look bad.
Things never got fixed. We've had a room with a broken phone for four months.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Supply the staff so we can perform our jobs with ease and fluidity.
Remember to always call back guests or speak to them regardless of what it is to ensure satisfaction.
Have things fixed promptly to ensure efficiency and raise revenue.

    Management's "professionalism" is a front for a disconnected, self-serving, ineffective team.

    I worked at Candlewood Suites

    Pros

    Once hired you can do virtually anything you want as long as you act the part in the presence of management. As long as your paperwork is up to date and you look like you're busy you can sleep in your office all day if you want.

    Cons

    Management hasn't a clue what their staff is doing day-to-day because they cant be bothered with participating. If you bring issues to their attention (make waves) they'll get rid of you for attempting to get something accomplished. If you take pride in the work you do and put alot of effort into it this probably isn't the place for you.

    I have been working at Candlewood Suites

    Pros

    Get to meet new people daily, your opinion matters, LOVE supporting Give Kids The World. Very caring company. I feel its a good start to a career.

    Cons

    Doesnt pay very much. Sometimes people can be rude. Other than that I would recommend a job at the Candlewood Suites hotel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for being so understanding and supportive. I love how close of a "family" our company is. They really treat you like family.
