    Pros

    Good for gaining hospitality experience, lots of locations (worldwide company) this is a part of the Wyndham brand relocation is available! Great employee discounts for rooms.

    Cons

    The Wyndham brand doesn't have a hood membership system or rewards for employees. Employees have limited power when it comes to rewarding guest's for staying frequently or rewarding guest's for constructive criticism.

    Pros

    The guest, the cute skaters, the nice cars, its a hotel and great from that perspective.

    Cons

    The management yells, the racisit comments made by management.. we all have favorites but its not obvious in the work place. Nothing about what you know, its about who you know and how well you kiss their butt. After years of no raises, being scheduled wrong all the time, being threatened. . Not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    get a new managent staff, believe in the betterment of the employee too.. not just your own pockets. A lot lives .. dreams.. and human respect youve taken away with the bad hours, terrible customers, and a CEO who spends more time watching the camras to "catch us" doing bad. .. Than showing us he appreciates our hard work. We are the ones selling the rooms, not the CEO. Your staff is your team, not your slaves.. not servents.

    Pros

    If you need to take time off for any reason the management is very understanding and flexible. You learn on the job and through a series of videos. You gain vast amounts of customer service skills and the manager is always willing to help even if you have to call to get an answer.

    Cons

    While working here we changed base companies upon doing so we lost all of our vacation days, without the possibility of gaining any in the future. We also lost the holiday pay for the foreseeable future. When the winter months roll around you are losing hours unless you are one of the few, very few, people who have been there for more than 3 years. The only way you will get a promotion is if someone leaves. The current owner of our location is constantly losing things in when they are given to him numerous times and its not like his office is messy he is just a little absent minded.

    Advice to Management

    I think that if they want a good company they need to make sure that raises, or even just cost of living increases, were given because during my time here the only time I received an increase in pay was when I moved to the over night shift and that was hazard pay as something dangerous was more likely to happen in the wee hours of the morning. Also, make sure that employees have holiday and vacation pay even if you only offer certain days to people that have been with the company for a certain amount of time. I loved working here until the company change happened.

    Pros

    Standard 8:30 to 5 Mon-Fri work week for office staff. Lots of interactions with upper management. Training and travel were available to other locations. Great healthcare package.

    Cons

    The new owners removed all the PROs. They changed healthcare to an horrible option and increased the cost. Changed the work week to a rotating schedule with no oversight. You get what you get depending on what your supervisor feels like giving you. As long as the supervisor doesn't go over the allotted hours no one checks the schedule. The new owner vanished after the initial 2 weeks and left some older relative that speaks broken English in charge.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is unavailable to the line and file. You hire way too many people for cheap that can not speak English properly. I have significant doubts as to whether some of them are legal, and I've worked in hotels plenty of times but we have an abnormal amount of non-speaking staff. Fix your scheduling and benefits. Treat people more humanely. Explain to them, help them along and make them feel wanted. Rumors are around the area that you are going under, while I don't work there anymore you should take action on that it can demoralize your staff.

    Pros

    Caring co-workers, management concern over employees health and travel conditions

    Cons

    Drama, drama, drama, unsanitary conditions in area's of the hotel, bed bugs in some of the rooms, shuttle (van) that doesn't work, stress due to the poor condition of the hotel and having to keep guests happy while they are in truth a terrible hotel.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the owner, get financial backing that would allow the necessary repairs to be done, and the employees to be paid a competitive wage instead of the low ball wages they are being paid currently.
