I worked at Lodgian

Pros

Cheap hotel stays around the world! Excellent people to work with, I loved my boss! She was awesome! Meet lots of different and interesting people! Ability to eat anything in the breakfast bar! :P

Cons

Not so nice pay, could use benefits for all employees. Sometimes/a lot of the times guest expect more than we have ever given them. Some expected free room upgrades when they were staying for 2 weeks! And they pretty much demanded it! Unfortunately due to weak management who gave in all the time, guests figured out they could walk all over us and say, "well you did it last time!"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Compensate the employees better!

    Low pay, no training, but hey, it's a paycheck.

    Pros

    You get a paycheck, a small, small, paycheck. There is little to no training, the manager takes training tests for you and lets you know that you got a 100 percent on the computer training. They ask if you want a tour of the hotel so you can explain the rooms and lay out to guests, but then refuse to show you. There is a lot of back stabbing and gossip allowed to go on between assosiates and managers. Overall, a very immature, weakly, run hotel which shows a lot of complacency. They are riding on the Holiday Inn Brand.

    Cons

    As with many other entry level positions, a lot of work for a little pay. Very multitasking intensive, combined with kissing up to rude patrons. Little to no training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your people.

    Pros

    Flexible hours.
    Non-management co-workers are great to be with.
    Good for part-time.

    Cons

    -So-so pay.
    -Lack of training.
    -Incompetent management.
    -Housekeepers cannot communicate well enough, causing everyone problems (especially the guests).
    -Uniforms are hot, itchy, and unprofessional. It doesn't matter what size you are, you will look like a clown.
    -Constant berating and non-constructive criticism from managers, especially HR. You will hardly receive positive feedback, despite your effort and personality.
    -Having to clock in and out; HR highly persnickety. You are always watched.
    -30 minuted lunch...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the terrible, polyester uniforms. Let Front Desk wear own profession clothing.
    More hands-on training instead of from a computer.
