    Pros

    Cheap hotel stays around the world! Excellent people to work with, I loved my boss! She was awesome! Meet lots of different and interesting people! Ability to eat anything in the breakfast bar! :P

    Cons

    Not so nice pay, could use benefits for all employees. Sometimes/a lot of the times guest expect more than we have ever given them. Some expected free room upgrades when they were staying for 2 weeks! And they pretty much demanded it! Unfortunately due to weak management who gave in all the time, guests figured out they could walk all over us and say, "well you did it last time!"

    Advice to Management

    Compensate the employees better!

    Pros

    You get a paycheck, a small, small, paycheck. There is little to no training, the manager takes training tests for you and lets you know that you got a 100 percent on the computer training. They ask if you want a tour of the hotel so you can explain the rooms and lay out to guests, but then refuse to show you. There is a lot of back stabbing and gossip allowed to go on between assosiates and managers. Overall, a very immature, weakly, run hotel which shows a lot of complacency. They are riding on the Holiday Inn Brand.

    Cons

    As with many other entry level positions, a lot of work for a little pay. Very multitasking intensive, combined with kissing up to rude patrons. Little to no training.

    Advice to Management

    Train your people.

    I worked at Lodgian full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company was true to employees and leadership. Allowed a good range of freedom and had a sound structure. Great focus on HR, Revenue management, and operations.

    Cons

    Company was doomed from onset due to fiscal instability. It was one of the rare publicly traded owner/operator hotel companies, but didn't always capitalize on it's strengths.

    Advice to Management

    It's all over now.

    Pros

    Well managed. Flexible and fair scheduling. Competitive compensation for the type of work. Nice perks including HIE discounts at other locations.

    Cons

    The position required late night shifts that were shared by all employees. Position offered little challenge or chance to advance beyond the desk.

    Advice to Management

    Management was fair and well respected. Only suggested improvement would be a displayed opportunity for challenges and eventual advancement. Would work for this company again.

    Pros

    Flexible hours.
    Non-management co-workers are great to be with.
    Good for part-time.

    Cons

    -So-so pay.
    -Lack of training.
    -Incompetent management.
    -Housekeepers cannot communicate well enough, causing everyone problems (especially the guests).
    -Uniforms are hot, itchy, and unprofessional. It doesn't matter what size you are, you will look like a clown.
    -Constant berating and non-constructive criticism from managers, especially HR. You will hardly receive positive feedback, despite your effort and personality.
    -Having to clock in and out; HR highly persnickety. You are always watched.
    -30 minuted lunch...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the terrible, polyester uniforms. Let Front Desk wear own profession clothing.
    More hands-on training instead of from a computer.

    Pros

    Marriott is an awesome company to work for. They treat their employees with respect and fairness. Well established management training programs allow for career advancement for those individuals interested in excelling within the organization.

    Cons

    As with any company in the hospitality industry the hours are long and working holidays and weekends as well as night shift vs day shift changes make it difficult for family time.

    Advice to Management

    One of the things that took place every year when I worked at the Courtyard was executive management would go out into the field and work in one of the hotels for 1 week covering several of the positions within the hotel i.e. housekeeper, dishwasher, front desk clerk etc. It was awesome for employee moral and kept the executives in touch with life on the front lines.

    Pros

    Lodgian is a decent place to work - great people, job was so-so, but the pay wasn't anywhere near what the employees would like.

    Cons

    The company needs to realize that minimum wage is not a livable salary and not be so stingy with the pay.

    Advice to Management

    Pay raises!
