    Its been a challenge

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
    Southern Pines, NC

    ProsI 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 .

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Didn't pay me, company didn't file my w4

    Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

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

    ConsI 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 Senior ManagementMake 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    amazing place to work

    General Manager (Former Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    ProsWilling to work sched. Good CEO. Clean place to work. Understanding people in higher management. Child friendly. Great customer service experience.

    Conspay for employees under management positions such as housekeeping, or front desk was low pay. Housekeeping came and went due to bad pay which is bad for business as clean rooms is the selling point.

    Advice to Senior Managementup the pay and the money saved on not having to train people over and over again as it would help retain the current employees.

    I love the hotel and my boss. Keep reading you'll see why.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Harrisonburg, VA

    ProsBrand new hotel and it is a franchise with standards. The work environment is good and everyone who works directly for the hotel is wonderful.

    ConsThe downside is the low pay, lack of benefits, very skinny staff, misrepresentation by owner. A lot of internal dysfunction and lack of communication.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou get what you pay for! Just above minimum wage and other payroll arrangements are not satisfactory. Not enough staff to effectively run hotel in a professional manner. Lack of hours and money causes employees to not care about their job - therefore, they don't do a good job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
