    Pros

    Front-desk training available Un-Paid, free coffee

    Cons

    The manager lives on the property, he expects trainees to work a schedule shift overnight and days for training with no pay. He has no patience and breath down your neck constantly. He blames new employees for mistakes that older employees make. Tremendous amount of turn-over, low pay, no health benefits. This is a sweat shop, Stay away from this tyrant and his strange behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Improve scheduling for new employees

    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.
