Employees all do their best to work together.

Operations Supervisor (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

ProsEasy to move from one hotel to another within the company. With many of the locations in the US being corporate ran the transfer ability is simple and for managers they even pay for the moves up to $4000 in some cases and more for longer range moves.

ConsHiring process seems to be a little skewed at times. There used to be a birage of interviews to go through and now if someone likes an applicant it only takes a nod from the general manager to push that candidate through. With the general manager not being fully aware of the persons qualifications, it can be a detriment to establishment when they are waived through the process.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of your comfort zones. Hire people from outside of your immediate circles. Many managers don't want to take the time to train new managers. So, when a position comes available a manager tends to put a call out to their friends to apply and if they do apply it is almost automatic as to who will get the position. Get back to basics.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
