    Pros

    Pay was decent for those unfamiliar with the field or without a degree. Friendly staff, and management, great learning experience

    Some software was outdated, the pay rate sucked for the educated, no room for advancement, and long periods of standing

    Advice to Management

    Please give your agents some chairs and give the guest free wifi, its the #1 reason why the hotels do not move on on trip advisor, its 2016 please get up to date on required accommodations

    Pros

    The people there are okay.

    Cons

    Has a Legal Department but isn't compliant with many laws. They are aware of what they are doing but would rather look away and get caught when the get caught because they save money.
    This place is a family business so only select people get taken care of.
