I have been working at Island Hospitality full-time (Less than a year)
Island purchased the hotel I manage back in June 2015. I have been very impressed with their professionalism and personal investment. They invited us down to Florida to meet everyone, get some training, and learn about the company. Everyone is very nice. Island offers great pay, great benefits, they do not micro manage which is fantastic for GM's! They believe and trust there hotel managers as "captain of the ship" to make decisions which is nice. I am very happy with Island so far! They pay excellent attention to where is needed and they care about their associates. Very happy! Kudos!
Nothing yet. I think for as big as they have gotten in a short period of time, they are transitioning, staffing, and changing very well
Advice to Management
Keep in touch with your GMs about what is going on in their hotels, opportunity, and successes. GMs know their hotels and care about them! This does happen very well now so thank you! Our regional Alex is fantastic! Kudos to him!
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Island Hospitality (Pittsburgh, PA) in July 2015.
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...
