Current Employee - Senior Director in Silver Spring, MD
Current Employee - Senior Director in Silver Spring, MD

I have been working at Choice Hotels full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

General good working environment. Middle management and staff are competent and supportive.

Cons

Very short term focused. Senior management is fixated on maximizing personal income during fairly brief tenure. Little investment in the brands.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest for the long-term health of the brands and maintain a consistent strategy.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fort Wayne, IN

    I worked at Choice Hotels full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Management wanted to do well

    Choice Hotel brand recognition

    Sales incentive to recruit new Choice Rewards members

    Did not have to wear tacky uniforms

    Cons

    Ownership would frequently overrule management recommendations

    Minimum wage

    No raises

    No benefits

    Needed repairs and upgrades to hotel put off until last minute

    Property management system not efficient, and recommendations to improve the software are ignored

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop an internship program to recruit strong talent from local universities. This way you can convince performers to work for minimum wage (or less being an internship). Although no performer will stay for too long with minimum wage, at least you can have them locked in for a few months. Or you could convince ownership to pay employees more, but I do not see that happening.
