Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Silver Spring, MD
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Silver Spring, MD

Pros

nice people, currently free parking, free coffee still available. interesting for the most part in marketing, good. current location. good hours

Cons

layoffs!!!!! executives not being cut... lots of admin and "little guys" so the exec wil still get their bonuses in February. high profile exits followed by returns with contracts.... no explanations. it is a big drama.. execs having the company buy tickets to raffle off to employes then canceling raffle toocket big tickets for himself.... the week of the layoff... we think je can still afford to buy his own tickets!!! need an ehics officer

Advice to ManagementAdvice

hire an outside etics officer.... regain employee confidence the recent layoffs of lower level staff only and no consolidation of functions under fewer exec makes people nervous ... big advice --- skip the bonuses this year and plow that money back into an pgrade of IT infrastructure

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Scottsdale, AZ

    Pros

    Benefits are good, people are nice. The pay is decent. Training is well done and prepares you for most of the issues that are required to do the job.

    Cons

    The calls are all very similiar. The franchissees are rude and barely speak english and constantly belittle you when you are trying to help them when they have made a mistake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce a penelty on the franchisees that are constantly rude to the call center personnel. This is the reason for a high turnover rate in the call center.

    Former Employee - House Keeping  in  Omaha, NE
    Former Employee - House Keeping in Omaha, NE

    Pros

    Working as a house keeper was good because there was a lot of job freedom. I could show up a little late to work and it was no problem. Also, there's no one monitoring you so as long as you finish all your assigned rooms before guests need to check in and make sure the room is done up to standard you have a lot of freedom. I brought my ipod with music/books on tape everyday which really passes the time; others would turn on the tv while making the beds, cleaning.

    Cons

    It is the same thing over and over and when you get a busy day you get very stressed and fall behind in your work if your not going at a very fast pace. After making 13 beds you get really sick of it and begin to despise bed skirts. The pay is also low without many benefits. Theres not much room for advancement and the owners were stingy about allocating more money to the hotel for fixing things, raises etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would just say make sure the employeees are appreciated. Its not a really good job and can be very stressful. Make sure your can meet some of their needs whether its a day off or an afternoon for an appointment/ family etc. It would be great if you couldn't give raises to at least give a small gift to employees as raises seem very scarce. Also, make sure the hotel has all the supplies it needs, without them employees can't do there jobs effectively.
