Pros

2 weeks vacation and 5 PDOs after being with the company for a year. Company is not franchised, so it's not to not have to compete with other hotels with the same name; other hotels are always willing to help one another out when they can from what I've seen.

Cons

No balance between work and home life. Some upper-level management has gotten to where they are simply because of the amount of years they have been with the company and not because they are competent and capable of performing the duties required to hold their position while others do a wonderful job and are never promoted, nor told what they need to work on in order to be promoted. Salary is disappointing; after breaking down how many hours I have worked, I make less than some of the hourly employees. Also, the company has such low turnover percentages because management has become afraid to fire any hourly employees because of the repercussions from corporate when your hotel's turnover percentage gets too high.

Advice to Management

Drury prides itself on being family owned and family-focused but has seemed to lost sight in that over the past few years. Start treating salaried team members with a little more respect as we are the ones putting in 60+ hours a week and covering every shift when hourly employees continually call off because they know how to work the attendance point system without getting fired.

    I worked at Drury Hotels full-time

    Pros

    Company truly believes in customer service which makes your job as a manager a lot easier, work to continually compensate line level staff for hours worked, training growth and recognition is there, bonuses for all employees is genius.

    Cons

    Don't know when to pull the trigger on firing non performers, AGM job is by far the most difficult and not paid accurately for hours worked and required to cover all roles at any given time, while vacation and PDO is nice the right staffing makes that difficult.

    I have been working at Drury Hotels full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits you are eligible for as an employee are the best part of working for the company. As long as you're willing to work, it's not a bad place to work.

    Cons

    The company 8 out of 10 times hires management from the outside. Most locations have management that have an inability to manage in addition to lack of experience to know what they're doing effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more qualified management and provide better training to both salaried and hourly employees.
