Pros

Friendly staff, franchise for Hilton so that presents lots of opportunities, Will promote from within.

Cons

Awful pay, there are managers here who have second jobs just to make ends meet. Overly aggressive labor budget goals cause frequent understaffing and sub par service to guests.

Advice to Management

Re-examine if you really want the property you have here in georgia to be competitive/successful, or do you just want to keep squeezing what profits you have out of it so you can continue to upgrade the properties in Chicago and Seattle.

    Pros

    Typical hotel sales job where the focus is just as strong on the solication goals as your revenue goals. No room for growth either within the company unless you want to move to another departments of the hotel.

    Cons

    I have seen a few properties now of Dow and you can tell a common theme with them all - they are all outdated and run down. I understand the need to save profit to buy more properties, but there needs to be a line somewhere to invest some of it back into your own properties.
