I worked at Choice Hotels full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Management wanted to do well

Choice Hotel brand recognition

Sales incentive to recruit new Choice Rewards members

Did not have to wear tacky uniforms

Cons

Ownership would frequently overrule management recommendations

Minimum wage

No raises

No benefits

Needed repairs and upgrades to hotel put off until last minute

Property management system not efficient, and recommendations to improve the software are ignored

Advice to Management

Develop an internship program to recruit strong talent from local universities. This way you can convince performers to work for minimum wage (or less being an internship). Although no performer will stay for too long with minimum wage, at least you can have them locked in for a few months. Or you could convince ownership to pay employees more, but I do not see that happening.

    I have been working at Choice Hotels full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best reason is working for an owner that does not micro-manage. It's located in a great location and guest satisfaction is high on the list.
    Above average pay.

    Cons

    Not much support-you will often work alone and are expected to be able to do all necessary tasks, including housekeeping and maintenance no matter how busy you are.
    There are no benefits, period.

    Advice to Management

    Benefits.
