    I have been working at Island Hospitality full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Corporate office is always available to support the hotels. They expect hard work and for us to take care of the guests. Not sure why some people think expecting hard work is a "con".

    Cons

    Accounting Department is TOO demanding. Sometimes it feels like they hired truck drivers to work there as they come across borderline rude when requesting items. The department needs to be reminded that they are there to support the hotels and not the other way around.

    Pros

    If you succeed you are given free reign

    Too much micromanaging of sales. Reporting often got in the way of doing my job.

    Instead of letting one bad "apple" create new headaches for all the other salespeople just get rid of them.

    I worked at Island Hospitality full-time

    Pros

    There are none to mention unfortunately

    Cons

    How much space do I get? Can't say enough

    Advice to Management

    The sad thing is, there really won't be anything done to correct their poor behavior, but I have learned since my departure that they have implemented many of the changes I had requested...YEARS earlier! Funny that those ideas were mentioned before, but written off until others came forward saying the same thing. A bit of other advice...exposed chest hair went out in the 70's...just sayin. This goes to the upper management guy with the Australian accent...the Bee-Gee wanna-be. You guys are begging to get a Hotel Workers union on your butt and I for one would love to see it happen.

    I have been working at Island Hospitality part-time

    Pros

    Good company and is fairly small enough hotel to work and get to know guests

    Cons

    management companies can be a pain and make your job harder when they refuse to renovate a two-decade-old property leading to guest complaints from the amenities and not our service.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of trying to scoop up as many properties, maybe try focusing so each property is up to par with brand standards.
