    I worked at Clarion Hotels part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was fair considering that I worked in an upstate NY location - summers were very busy & sometimes stressful, but the winter season was a chance to rest-up.... Working the audit, I didn't really have to deal with any drama, etc, that the day shift employees seemed to experience, I enjoyed my time with the company & miss the co-workers who came in before I left,

    Cons

    I have no complaints about the specific location that I worked,

    Advice to Management

    Take care of Dee ... Customers love her & she takes the job seriously! <3

    I worked at Clarion Hotels full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get paid $15 a hour which is okay if you don't have a lot of responsibilities.

    Cons

    Your job is as needed so if guest stay over and don't want your work in their rooms you have less work for the day and remember you get paid hourly, less work, less pay.
    Not a very diverse environment mainly Brazilians.
    Workers don't use gloves to clean bathrooms which I found to be very risky and nasty.
    During the slow period from winter to spring you get only a few hours so even though you are registered for full time, you get part time hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be more respectful to employees when they have issues, complaints or inquiries.

    Pros

    Easy to get hired, consistent hours on a weekly basis.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. Only way to move up is by sleeping with someone higher up. Constant complaints of bed bugs and no respect to employees by having them work full time hours, but labeling them part time to avoid giving benefits.

    Advice to Management

    You are nothing without a team, respect them a little more
