    I worked at Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center

    Pros

    Fun and exciting place to work for a college student learning the hospitality industry. Great management and very flexible scheduling

    Cons

    The pay is not very good at all, very near minimum wage. Uniforms are tacky and uncomfortable. Management treats student workers like little kids.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a stronger training program for newly hired employees to get them more oriented to the work environment at the Kellogg.

    Kellogg doesn't understand the role it plays in the larger university environment.

    I worked at Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center

    Pros

    It was a relatively fun job and I enjoyed my time there, and I got paid incredibly well for my age

    Cons

    Management doesn't understand hospitality very well. There is extremely poor inter-departmental communication. The Staff doesn't understand the 'big picture' role that the building plays into the larger university environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You never know who could be hanging out in the bar or lobby. Sometimes these are the people cutting extremely substantial gifts to the university and it should be imperative that everyone be treated at an exceptional level of service.

    What is more important a $5 beer here or there, a meal comped, or a $250K+ grant for the university? Consider the larger scope of your actions.

    I enjoyed meeting such a diverse group of customers, co-workers, and VIP guests.

    Pros

    Most if not all staff is entitled to a free meal during the work shift.
    Very clean and professional place to work.
    Michigan State University benefits are great!
    20% gratuity is included on all orders for room service.

    Cons

    Long and unpredictable hours.
    Stressful environment
    Rich up-tight guests are a pain to deal with, and there are a lot of them!
    Poor management choices are effecting work ethic among employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time and listen to your employee's requests.
    Sending the next week's work schedule to employees two days before the week starts is unacceptable.

    Pros

    If you are still a student it is a good place to work, upon graduation it is more of a detriment for you.

    Cons

    You get paid a lot less than the amount of work carried out is worth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To listen to the input of the employees underneath them because the servers actually know whats going on because they are the ones serving.
