I worked at Towne Park full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

No experience needed. If you really want to put in crazy hours and drink some of their koolaid, then there is room for advancement within.

Cons

Long hours, demanding managers, no job security

Advice to Management

Compensate your best employees to prevent them from leaving.

    I have been working at Towne Park part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Works with your schedule, and good work environment. Helps you gain experience in working with different types of people.

    Cons

    Pay isn't the best. Deal with many restrictions from the hotels. Highly focused on customer service to the point that it almost becomes impersonal.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the base pay. $4.50 isn't enough

    I have been working at Towne Park part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most flexible schedule of any employer. Pick up shifts or get time off is never a problem. Tips can be very good depending on the contract property. Ability to grow in the company.

    Cons

    $3.00/hr starting out at most properties. Huge ladder gap between manager and GSA's. Managers don't genuinely care about hotel patrons or lower staff. Managers create and change new rules seemingly every week. If you take a week or two off, expect the rules/procedures to be different when you return. Tips are generally quite low. I've been fortunate enough to work at a luxury property where tips can range from $10-30/hr on top of the hourly. The overall average at my property comes to about $14/hr. Most properties have to make-up tips for the employees to clear minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Consider employee and patron opinions directly. Communicate full intent clearly. TRANSPARENCY!
