    Unlike anything Ive ever seen

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLocation. Thats the only pro which is also the only reason guests come there

    ConsEverything else. Very inexperienced upper mgt afraid of their own unionized staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let front line staff run the hotel just because your afraid of the union. Ive never seen or heard anything like this before.

    under-staffed and over-worked

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    Pros- room for promotion (though mostly due to high turnover rate)
    - competitive salary
    - independent property, which allows for flexibility in practices

    Cons- inexperienced management
    - little to no worker pride
    - under-staffed and over-worked = unhappy employees
    - high turnover rate

    Advice to Senior Management- improve communication - drastically
    - take care of employees and treat them fairly
    - work as hard as your under-staffed employees do

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
