    Pros

    Manager works with you for emergencies, family health.

    Cons

    Barely making enough to survive with the cost of living

    Advice to Management

    Housekeepers deserve better wages for what the job entails. Wv is listed as one of the lowest paying wages nationally. starting wage should be at least 10.00, and periodic raises should be given for compensation for job well done. /a bonus here and there is nice but a solid wage is stability for struggling workers with economy so bad. each step up from that should be a dollar more on the hour. With all do respect, good employees strives even better when wage meets the labor given.


  6. Not the best place to work!

    Pros

    I was able to be promoted to Assistant Manager after working for 7 years and the new owner realized my potential to handle all aspects of the Microtel Inn .

    Cons

    No laundry person, One washer One dryer, No stability, company rules change every day, not enough team players.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to work with your employees not against them. We know that its your company there is no need to bring it up every time you get upset.

    Pros

    They always have shifts needing covered. But honestly found no pros!

    Cons

    I worked there for 2 weeks and the franchise owner Varun did not file my pay because he lost my W4. So I had sent him one via email, text PDF format, and physically brought one in. A month later still no pay or answer from the Umbrella company Wyhnndam. Don't expect much help from their cooperate either!

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your franchise owners file paperwork correctly so labor commission doesn't have to investigate, and at least follow up with your current and former employees before it escalates to that. You guys need to pay your employees fairly or at least have a HR to report situations like this too.
