    Great employees and commitment to guest satisfaction, ability to take initiative and make a difference, great industry.

    I worked at Red Lion Hotels

    Pros

    Made a lot of money during football season as a banquet server.

    Cons

    Pay fluctuated, incredibly undertrained to work large events alone, wasn't ever trained and left to the wolves. Worked long hours. Sometimes over 24 hours. Then some weeks were slow. Management didn't delegate shifts properly. I would be called in to work a water service which meant I made nothing in gratuity and had nothing to do for 8 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees. They are the first person the guests interact with.

    Pros

    We are moving fast right now and it's a pretty fun time to be with RLHC because of that.

    Cons

    The growth makes for a fast pace at times and being able to function efficiently with ambiguity is a must.;

    Advice to Management

    Keep expanding and growing - that is where the fun is, seeing RLHC be at the forefront again.

    Some flexibility in schedule, ability to move up depending on the size of your hotel.

    Most of the cons you'll find working for any hotels, such as weekend/holiday work and difficult guests.
