    Pros

    Great workout, get to work at your own pace as long as time standards are met, easy but hardworking/physical job

    Cons

    Doesn’t pay much, no benefits, can’t get to a higher position

    Advice to Management

    You should pull pay housekeeping more because they are the ones that pretty much run the hotel. If it wasn’t for housekeeping there wouldn’t be any clean rooms for guests. It is a very hardworking job to barely get paid the least amount of money

    Give your employees the time of day. Most of the time they are trying to improve the work environment. Be mindful of issues of harassment and lack of property security.

    Pros

    Driving the shuttle you earn tips. You meet people from all over the world. You work independently. The pay is above min wage.

    Cons

    High turnover. Manager finds is always negative and will never appreciate your hard work . You will work weekends forever and if someone calls In sick then someone else will be working 16 hours. No benefits. No future. You will be tormented on your days off or when your not clocked in. Some of the women there are evil, hateful and will backstab and make up lies about you.

    Advice to Management

    Give people a reason to want to come in. Appreciate effort and don't assume you know everything. Ask first without blaming. Praise . Give bonus. Give a future to people. Otherwise you will always have a high turnover.

    I worked at Choice Hotels for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good for building customer service skills, year round employment. Maybe good for students in wintertime, flexible schedule, extended unpaid leave in off season available. Discounted employee room rate at affiliated hotel chains.

    Cons

    12 hour shifts, no overtime pay, no night shift pay, no raises, no benefits, no holiday/ summer season bonuses, no paid leave.

    Advice to Management

    When you purchase all the properties you are planing on purchasing, and accomplish all the rest of your plans, you should start providing some kind of benefits at least.

    I worked at Choice Hotels full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good, stable company. Working the front desk is a wonderful way to meet people from all over the world, and to gain experience dealing with all sorts of problems and attitudes. If you are a good worker, management stands behind you.

    Cons

    Work shifts can be difficult if you prefer working "normal hours". The graveyard shift is great if you prefer quiet, but not if you really want to interact with people. The salaries are not great, and there were no benefits offered when I worked there.
