      Great Company

      Pros

      Unlike most other hotels, the hotels are actually managed directly by Drury corporate and not a management company. This leads to easy communication and clear goals towards the future and what is currently going on within the company.

      Cons

      To remain competitive with other big name companies, Drury hotel provides multiple amenities to all of their guests. This has attracted more than usual difficult guests.

      Pros

      Wonderful management, autonomy, usually off before 1 pm

      Cons

      If you are ever sick or have a family emergency, there is never coverage. A manager has to cover for you, and they make sure you know that. Volume of customers to serve and cook for is very extremely high. Very little help is available to you. You must come in early to every shift and stay late in order to complete tasks, but you are constantly reminded of labor costs. Be prepared to spend at least an hour per shift washing dishes by hand. No breaks.

      Company Listens and Cares

      Pros

      Smaller company compared to other hotels brands, and they made the work environment feel very welcoming. Management was willing to work with me when I had problems, and were very accommodating with my schedule while in classes.

      Cons

      Standard downsides associated in working hospitality/tourism - you'll probably work most holidays. It's not a detriment specific to the company, just something you need to be used to in the industry.

      Pros

      Wonderful training. Very streamlined and consistent. You always know what to do, they have training modules for every situation. Very family-oriented. They start you off at $15- Entry level position but they recognize talent and you can quickly move up. Most people stay at Drury for decades I saw Chuck Drury every day, and even as an entry-level employee he made it his business to know everybody's name in the corporate office. Great benefits Health insurance, life insurance, 401k, Short Term Disability/long term disability, PTO and PDO days.

      Cons

      The last interview before they hire you is VERRY long. 4 hours long and they don't make you aware of that before you arrive once you move up, it can get a little political. It's not horrible but 1 of the RSMs at that time was rude, I would speak and she would just look and keep walking- literally the only person.
