    Pros

    The only pro that i experienced from this job was working with the public and meeting new people every day.

    Cons

    There is absolutley no room for advancement, staffing was always an issue and we were required to work double shifts to keep the front desk maintained at all times while the manager sat at home and wouldn't answer any calls to assist the employees if there was an issue. The employees who not actually doing their job duties we're somehow always off the hook no matter what they did while the others fought hard to keep the hotel running.

    Advice to Management

    Close the Harrisonburg Jameson or terminate the current manager. i was degraded and humiliated in front of other employees on a daily basis.

    Pros

    The guests were great, the staff was wonderful. We worked as a team and we worked independently of upper management. We only saw the Regional Manager once every quarter.

    Cons

    The upper management is horrible, they do not communicate with anyone. They are reactive and not proactive. They will walk into a hotel and fire people randomly. They are well known for this and they don't have to have a reason although they strongly promote the "3 writeup rule" and make sure that they have covered all their bases. They do not reward for performance. They have cut bonuses and made them virtually impossible to achieve. They cover their own mistakes while taking down anyone in their way.

    Advice to Management

    Since you know it all, it doesn't matter anyway.

    Pros

    its heated in the winter and a,c in the summer.company dicout at other locations, flexable schedule and the p.t.o time that can be aquired

    Cons

    no room for advancement or raise, nothing is appreciated , there,s no overtime available you get called in and the next day you have to leave early because of the overtime, and it seems when ever something comes up and no one wants to do it ,we,ll then it falls under maintenance

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees , some do know what their talking about,keep supplies on hand . its bad when you have to run to the hardware store for a 30 cent item

    Pros

    It pays money so that I can pay the bills, and it fits in my school schedule. It was also nice to get to work alone.

    Cons

    Employee turnover is very high. Every day is the same thing as the day before; there is no variation in the day-to-day routine. Everything is unnecessarily micro-managed, all the way down to the "phone script" that must be followed "every call, every time," which is nearly impossible because not every phone call is the same and warrants the same "script".

    Advice to Management

    You need to do a better job training associates, and there is no reason why it should take more than half a year to find a new manager in this economy.

    I have been working at Jameson Inns part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had a pay check coming in every two weeks.

    Cons

    I never received a raise. There were people that had worked there for over 10 years that were only being paid 8.50 per hour. It was very sad. Also working at the front desk in the evening and night shift was dangerous for only one staff member on duty.

    Advice to Management

    Give hard working, committed employees that are dedicated to your company more than 8.50 per hour!
