Former Employee - Guest Service Representative in Walker, MI

I worked at Holiday Inn Express part-time (more than an year)

Pros

You will have fun working here. Both the staff and the guests that stay love to be there and if you are outgoing, you will fit in right away.

Cons

The maintenance staff is awful, technology crashes every day, and you are overly stressed. There are too many cliques between FD, housekeeping, and management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please change this hotel and FAST. The front desk staff does not get paid enough for the amount of work that is put in to the hotel.

    Pros

    They treat you well. Shifts are not too long, you are fed mid shift and they give generous breaks.

    Cons

    They will not give second chances and do not give allowance for family/home circumstances. They do not sympathise with out of work issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more understanding, it goes a long way with us little people.

    Former Employee - Sales Manager in Janeville, NB (Canada)

    I worked at Holiday Inn Express full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Education and learning opportunities, good pay, decent line level staff. It was a good opportunity to make contacts in the business community.

    Cons

    Rapid turnover (you will eventually be fired or worn down to quitting), unbelievably incompetent management, hostile environment, poor goal setting (contradictory goals). This place is deeply in the hole and you will be required to make up for shortfalls you had nothing to do with. Management thinks nothing of screaming at you because they feel like it. Owners are a non-entity and they should be on site at least a bit to provide guidance. You will just be told do this today and the next day be told to do the opposite. If you like chasing your tail, this is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your people and invest in them, loyalty is not what can you do for me today. Operations management are truly despicable human beings. You need to be on site every week and foster openness with the employees who will tell you the harsh truth so you can understand how truly awful the culture of poison is.
