Current Employee - Front Desk  in  Arlington, VA
Current Employee - Front Desk in Arlington, VA

I have been working at HEI Hospitality full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Easy to move up if you get into the MIT program
There are some great people you will meet
You will learn very quickly because you will be doing many different jobs

Cons

The sick time is a joke, people call off willingly because associates will lose sick time if they don't use it. This sets others up for failure when you can't get a shift covered. Whatever happened to PTO

Underpaid and understaffed compared to other hospitality companies. HEI is fully aware.

HEI preaches about their wonderful hive and growing from within, however they hire from outside the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop just looking at your properties as an investment opportunity and actually show compassion. Look at other hospitality companies and take notes

    Former Employee - Executive Committee

    I worked at HEI Hospitality full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good internal programing, personable executives, nice properties, ability to grow.

    Cons

    Ethical decisions when divesting of assets.
    Ethical decision of treatment of employees, both former and current
    Human resources (corp) is operated by a youthful, but inexperienced team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a more support in human resources to support the field. In addition, EVP's and CEO's need to have front line hotel experience to be effective.
