I worked at Colonial Inn

Pros

The non-management staff were delightful and dedicated. The history was rich. The guests really enjoyed the place.

Cons

No employee recognition. Being berated by upper management in front of floor staff and guests. Even when revenue goals were continually surpassed always being told it could have been better. Finding out a subordinate made more money than you. Finding out all male counterparts in similar management positions made more than you. No human resources department for a staff of over 70 employees. Awful benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The first rule of successfull business is take care of your internal customer. Recognize the achievments of your staff.

    I have been working at Colonial Inn

    Pros

    The owner is a crusty old kook who has worked in high-end hotels for his whole life. The GM does his best to keep him on track, but he does stray. The staff does have a lot of fun for what little benefits that are given them.

    Cons

    The owner wont develop its staff. If staff doesnt meet his expectation, he replaces them. He will hire the new employee, have you train them, and then fire you. The owner purposely picks fights between departments to keep everyone competitive. There is no teamwork and no stability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some money and develop your staff instead of constantly replacing them.
