    Salary compensation was comparable with the industry.
    Great environment to work in.

    Cons

    Unclear communication of job stability and direction

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Opportunities to relocate and learn.

    Cons

    Hiring freezes. Age discrimination amongst management. Revolving shelf life of GMs.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people, and they'll take care of you. Just because a Director is a fast talker, doesn't mean they're worth their salt, and are maybe a super star because of the work delegated to the people below them.

    I worked at Red Lion Hotels full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It pays higher than other hourly jobs in other places, but you have to work crazy hours.

    Cons

    1. Really shady management, they are not honest with you about your employee benefits and schedule. They told me there was no healthcare coverage, after I turned down the job, they offered to me. They hired me for morning shift, but they tried to change me to night shift.
    2. It's really dirty there.
    3. Shifts start and end times vary a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, don't try to lie to people to get your way.

    I worked at Red Lion Hotels full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company has a firm direction they are headed and provide the resources and empowerment to help achieve those goals. They have support systems in place from Operations and Sales to Revenue and Accounting that help achieve the goals.

    Cons

    Goals are great and all goals need a bit of stretch, sometimes there is too much stretch but it encourages you to get creative and try. 99% of the time, if you give your absolute best efforts, get creative, and still fall short of goals, they acknowledge and accept the effort and move forward, but, however, there is NO ROOM for excuses and not giving a best effort.

    Advice to Management

    Always keep the lines of communication open. This is not RLHC specific advice, but advice that I feel we all need to remember and keep in mind at all times. It contributes to positive employee growth and retention.
