    I worked at Choice Hotels full-time (More than 8 years)


    If you're good and you find yourself working for a trusting manager, you can really make a difference for the company.


    Choice Hotels is an old company and comes with a boatload of bureaucracy and process. If you're a hiring manager, the HR process is tedious and heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Tear down the walls. Be open to new ideas, let your star employees shine and do what's best. Stop the "that's the way we've always done it" mentiality.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rockville, MD

    Average Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Choice Hotels (Rockville, MD).


    Compare to other places I interviewed, Choice's interview process is not well planned. At the very last minute they decide you will meet more people, than originally planned. They don't show you the office, which is strange.
