    I worked at Motel 6 part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work was fairly easy and the Owner was kind and caring.

    Cons

    The pay was low, but that's expected based on the small amount of responsibilities. The bookkeeper/Desk Agent was late most days and no action was taken after bringing it to owner's attention.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your staff to push harder and expect more of those that work for you.

    Pros

    They have the best health insurance of any place I have ever worked

    Cons

    with 4 and 11 cent raises it would be not in your lifetime to ever see 10 dollars per hr.

    Advice to Management

    take home my pay and give yourself a 4 cent raise then try to explain to your kids why they dont get to eat this week!

    I worked at Motel 6 full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people that work at Motel 6 (corporate staff, operations, etc) are some of the best people I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    The company is working really hard to fix it's problem with Work/Life Balance. It just is not there yet. I would work 80+ hours a week at times and that lead to no life and a whole lot of work. That ultimately led me to leave the company.
