    Nothing but lies!!!!

    Guest Services Agent (Current Employee)
    Lancaster, PA

    ProsI have been promised a promotion since the day I started. They even went as far as to create a job title with a job description and then turned around and said they are only required to have one manager so they are not going ahead with my position.

    ConsLies lies low pay horrible benefits

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the promises made to your staff. Do not treat them like they are expendable because they will not stay working for you. Have some integrity when running a business. It is poor business ethics to make a proposal then take it back.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Poor management, lack of training, I received low pay even with some experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDiscounted room rates when traveling.

    ConsLow pay!! Overworked. You are expected to work like a slave. I mean literally, you aren't given a lunch or any breaks through out your shift. Guests are continuously complaining about the hotel. You are required to check in more than 30-40 guests and accommodate to the many complaints guests make and answer phones for reservations, which happens more than you think. The computer system is also buggy, which can be partly due to the way management set up the rooms and such. Co- worker are rude and have ghetto attitudes. It's wasn't a friendly place to work at.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is ridiculous and poorly staffed. New hires, who lack experience, are promoted. It's just a matter of who the manager becomes close friends with rather than promoting people practically by skill and experience. It's just politics.

    Worst experience ever

    Guest Services Agent (Current Employee)
    Kennesaw, GA

    ProsIt's a nice average hotel to gain experience in. The guests are pleasant, and you get the amount of hours you need/ want.

    ConsThe management is disgusting. They micromanage, belittle employees, and never take the blame for anything. The pay is somewhat decent but you are way overworked. The communication amongst the staff is awful and you're clueless as to what's going on upon arrival for your shift. So many people quit in such short time, including myself.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe hotel just needs new management. There's nothing you can do to improve them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No professionalism in management.

    Room Attendant (Current Employee)
    Linthicum, MD

    ProsIt is work. Not a difficult job.

    ConsThe manager hired several family members and they all form this "clique." Threats of termination if you do not come in even when not on call, even when you "always" come in. Promises of advancement never come to fruition. Low pay with no raises.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease pay attention to the activities and behind-the-door policies of your store managers, hiring family and other unethical behavior carrying on at this location. Offer better paths of communication between upper management and lower scale employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The worst place to work at!

    Night Auditor (Former Employee)
    Mount Laurel, NJ

    ProsMy co-workers were super nice .

    ConsNO way for promotions.
    NO way to get a raise.
    They don't offer any sort of benefits .

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your staff , give them a chance to express their opinions. Evaluate your staff annually and give them a raise.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Being on the Frontline

    Front Desk (Former Employee)
    Mount Laurel, NJ

    ProsWhen I worked the front desk at Wingate, I learned how to engage with the public and not take things personally, assisting guests with needs, coordinating tasks set before and learning how to multi-task quickly.

    ConsThe huge cons are the salary, no benefits, no paid sick or vacation time off, no OT pay.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
