    I worked at Days Inn full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, friendly staff, good training.

    Cons

    Very short breaks for lunch. Must be able to multitask very quickly when hotel is busy. I got fired without a warning and the manager didn't give me a reason.

    Advice to Management

    I think you must give a reason to a person you are firing. Also its good to start with a warning and let someone know what they are doing wrong...

    I have been working at Days Inn (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great customers that are nice to deal with. Location is perfect as well. Not much else can be said. New businesses opening all around providing more business.

    Cons

    Cheap management. Doesn't support staff. No benefits, even for management. Privately owned so they keep all profits. No bonuses or growth availability.

    I worked at Days Inn (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good hotel, some employees had great hospitality, owners were very nice and generous people.

    Cons

    They didn't spend enough time training employees, I would always have to work over because they didn't have the best of employees at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you have employees who want to work and can have management train them to do their jobs properly.

    I worked at Days Inn part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun place to work, freedom to work independently and there is plenty of time to get your rooms done; if you work at a decent pace. Co-workers are there to help anyone who may have rooms left so everyone can leave for the day. Comfortable, able to listen to music or listen to t.v. while working. Very family oriented, they value family obligations of their employees. They are understanding and if you need to go due to an emergency, or need to take a little time off to deal with an emergency, you are able to do so.

    Cons

    If you are a housekeeper, you more than likely will not be getting full time hours. Your hours vary depending on the time of year and amount of rooms that day. Pay is 8.00 an hour to start which isn't bad. If you are looking for more hours or full time hours..front desk would be a better option. I, myself, enjoyed the housekeeping position.

    Advice to Management

    None! Great job & keep it up!

    I worked at Days Inn full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly people to work with. Right next to a on and off ramp to a highway so it was always busy.

    Cons

    Management sucked. They did not keep up with inventory so supplies were always running out. There where drug busts going on constantly at this location. The owners would not listen to the workers and their input or suggestions. So good hard workers where hard to keep.

    Advice to Management

    Work a day in each of the departments and actually listen to the workers.

    Pros

    Cons

    New owners cut employees to bar minimum. Don't like to give raises.
