    I have been working at Super 8 Motels full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy job, flexible schedule, employee discounts

    Cons

    Owner likes to try to make you pay out of your pocket. If a guest skips you are responsible for room rate.
    If your drawer is short you are responsible for paying it back
    If boss shows up you're sent to clean trash from parking lit while he is left alone with your drawer so even if he messes it all up you must pay still because its your numbers the transaction is under. You'll be responsible for providing anything you may need to complete the task. There is no heat/ac in my lobby so you're freezing all day or burning up all day. You're at the mercy of the weather.

    I have been working at Super 8 Motels part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to get a foothold in the hospitality industry. The work hours are somewhat flexible. Management has been professional and easy to work with because each location is franchised. If the owner cares about the property and employees, working at a Super 8 is a great opportunity.

    Cons

    It is a lower tier hotel, so customer expectations for accommodations can be unreasonably high even with decent rates. This is a challenge for the extremely successful Super 8 I work at.
