Advice to ManagementAdvice

I don't have much advice as the company pretty much runs like a well-oiled machine. I would stress more of a work-life balance. The hotel industry in general is tough with long hours and minimal holidays.

    Current Employee - Sales Manager in Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Sales Manager in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at White Lodging full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I liked everyone on my sales team and enjoyed going to work everyday. It's an easy product to sell as long as you do your research, speak with confidence, and know what you're talking about. Advancement is quick if you do the right things.

    Cons

    If you aren't willing to relocate, advancement will take some time. I wasn't willing to relocate so wouldn't make the money I wanted as fast as I wanted it. Once I realized how long it would take me to get where I wanted to be with hotels, it made me want to get out of hotels. I pursued other opportunities and one came up that I couldn't pass.

    If you aren't willing to relocate, good luck advancing quickly. At White Lodging, you don't make money with raises, you make them with promotions. No relocating, no promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's ok to say GOOD JOB. Even when hitting your goals, it's never good enough here. Also, too much talk throughout the company. Everyone knows everything about everyone before you even meet them.
