    I have been working at Island Hospitality full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Fast growth if you produce results and are a Team Player. I started at the end of 2016 as a first time General Manager, and I am now a Dual General Manager in Houston.
    - This company prefers to promote from within. They recently promoted two strong female General Managers in Texas to Regional Vice Presidents. Island also has a Leadership Development Program available for Front Office, Sales, and RVP positions. They invest in your future and want you to succeed.
    - Benefits - 401k, affordable healthcare (I have the family plan), realistic expectations, and a relatable Senior Leadership Team that genuinely cares about you.
    - Supportive systems and processes without micromanagement. Easy to use accounting, payroll, budgeting, forecasting, and sales related systems.

    Cons

    There aren't any hotels located in Katy, TX! :)

    General Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Island Hospitality (Pittsburgh, PA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Waited about two weeks after applying to receive phone call to take personality test and express interest in interview. Completed test immediately and had scheduled phone interview time with Regional Manager. AT the time of interview, after she did not pick up the call, I received an email apologizing and saying a meeting popped up and we would have to reschedule. After attempting to email two times to reschedule, with zero response, I finally called and asked if there was still interest. She said there was and we, at that point, rescheduled. Interview was on the phone, and lasted about 90 minutes - was very normal.

    I was then scheduled to meeting with the Regional VP, who flew in for the interview. This interview lasted only maybe 20 minutes and I did not get a great sense one way or the other how it went, being that it was so short.

    After a week or so, I emailed the initial manager politely asking if the position had been filled. Waited another week, emailed the VP politely asking for an update. Another week, emailed them BOTH with the same question. I never received a response.

    While I am ok getting beaten out for a job, and I am understanding that sometimes a person isn't a great fit for the position, I can not understand how executives can get to this level without enough decency to let someone know what's happening with the position when they have asked directly three different times over the course of 6 weeks. I feel like i may have dodged a bullet with this one...
