    Pros

    Profit Sharing is a great perk if you qualify. Was recognized several years in a row as employee of the year/ quarter

    Cons

    I worked for McKibbon for 7 1/2 years. In those years I never had more then $1 raise. I always had to eat my lunch at the front desk because no one had "time" to relieve me for 30mins. You only get 2 weeks paid vacation, you have to work 10 years to get three wks. After I returned from maternity leave my schedule was inconsistent and seniority didn't matter.

    Advice to Management

    It is true that you can replace employees at a drop of a dime in this industry, however you shouldn't mistreat the ones that work hard for your company. I understand business is business but treat employees better and your turn over rate will decrease.

    Pros

    I would leave this section blank, but there is a twenty word minimum. There truly are no aspects of this company I experienced over the years I was employed that make it stand out as being a decent place to work.

    Cons

    For an hourly employee, you are better off working at walmart. There are only a few benefits offered, and those only become available if you average thirty hours per week over a year. Their business model is to keep hourly associates under thirty hours. A 1-3% raise is offered yearly, and you may have to beg for the yearly review to even be conducted. They would rather you forget about it. Management is unorganized and inconsistent with policies. You may be encouraged to bypass health and safety violations to reduce waste or maintain a budget. Hard workers are held in the same position and go unappreciated while bad workers are not penalized when they should be.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate- keep in touch with the environment within the hotels and conduct annual sit down interviews with at least a portion of employees from each department to gauge their opinions on the effectiveness of their managers. Your mission statement couldn't be more inaccurate from an employees standpoint.

  6. Middle management seems to be lacking in certain departments due to sometimes high turnover rates

    Pros

    The company is very nice and friendly. They offer profit sharing and seem to care about their employees at the corporate level.

    Cons

    High turnover leads to too many people trying to change things too often which creates conflicting standard and confusion.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your middle managers more to ensure that they are handling procedures properly.

    Pros

    They hire great employees whom care about their job and the well-being of the guests that visit. Flexible Schedule with competitive pay.

    Cons

    Hotel industry, so it's never closed and hard to get time off. High rate of employee turnover, but again because it is the hotel industry.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and consider their ideas, this will inspire them to work harder and in result make you look good.

    Pros

    Being a sales manager with McKibbon gave me some experience for my resume. The hotel discounts were good too.

    Cons

    Weak leadership and demanding general managers at different properties caused constant mixed messages.

    Advice to Management

    Get stronger leadership at VP level to allow your sales team to be effective and work in partnership with GMs. It's impossible to have 3-4 different managers at one time. Also offer more financial rewards...the commission and salary are a joke.

  9. Very gad experience.

    Pros

    A mess of a Company. Long term VP's are dooming it. They can't handle growth and maintain culture.

    Cons

    None that are worth mentioning.

    Advice to Management

    Shake things up, remove ineffective dinosaurs from Corporate.
