I have been working at Best Western full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

All the staff are friendly and get on well with each other, free use of gym and swimming pool, membership discount on food & drink and beauty treatments, Best Western discount at other hotels

Cons

Long hours for poor wages, senior management take advantage of the people who work really hard, no rewards for achievements only bad words if mistakes are made, corners are cut to save money but to an extreme that means the staff can't do their jobs properly

Advice to Management

Don't take your staff for granted!

    I worked at Best Western full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a job, thats the only good thing. I'm sorry I have nothing positive to say.

    Cons

    The management is the worst I have ever seen, and that just trickles down into every aspect of the entire time you are there. Whether you are working or on vacation. A business shouldn't be about the money above all else, when the business you are in is "hospitality".
