    Pros

    The People- You enjoy getting to know all the people at your properties. Anytime I was able to get a hold of a GM, we would put our heads together and build upon our controls. Getting reports is not a problem because everyone knows what the goals are. Being with the accounting group in Tukwila was great as well. The other PAs are very helpful in getting you started and answering questions along the way. Having everyone working on the same group of hotels builds great expertise. Many issues are easily correctible. Just ask questions.

    The job-Starting off it feels like you are drowning but actually that's the best way to learn how to swim. You get to know a lot about the properties and how they operate. You get to learn a lot in a short amount of time before you get cut loose. Its very fast paced but many of the properties are similar. As I said before the people are very friendly and will help you in any way to meet the deadlines.

    The properties-Working with franchised hotels, you get know a lot about the brand and the ownership groups. There is a lot to learn and it gets very intriging. You get to know how properties operate with very beneficial accounting knowledge.

    Cons

    Month End-Basically my only con, but you will find this is standard in the industry. Anytime you are closing multiple properties you will get times where all the deadlines meet. The best part about month end is that each month is very similar in what issues arise at the properties. It's easy to anticipate the issues and making all the necessary entries before month end. Makes the load lighter at crunch time.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget to invest in your people! Recognition is great but feedback and development is golden.

    Front Desk Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hillsboro, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at InnVentures (Hillsboro, OR) in September 2017.

    Interview

    It was a very nice experience. I met with the Front Office Manager first and it felt so comfortable that I didn't even feel like I was being interviewed. I felt like I was just having a conversation with a new friend and getting to know each other. Then, I met with the General Manager and she is amazing. She's funny., she's kind, she's just so inspiring. Getting to know these two ladies was and has been a such a pleasure.
