    I worked at TOG Hotel Properties full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None really to list except for the training that can be useful to help you move on to a real hotel

    Cons

    The owner micromanages. You're only paid a decent wage if your a sales manager. Both the Dallas and Fort Worth properties put in fake reviews to boost their ratings/rankings. Fires the best employees and keeps the shady ones. Need I go on???

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of everyone and start all over.

    Pros

    There are no pros, though people state that the pay is more than the average, as a salaried employee you get taken advantage of and end up working more hours per week than you imagined.

    Cons

    Where do I start? There is nothing worth mentioning here. The owner is a narcissistic, ego centrical person who truly believes the world revolves around him.

    Advice to Management

    Management is not at fault here, they are not allowed to do their jobs due to the micromanaging owner.

    Pros

    -Decent pay
    -good downtown location
    -some solid co-workers

    Cons

    -Bad insurance/benefits
    -Horrible "training" (unless you want to know how not to do things)
    -Scatter brained owner who doesn't know or remember what he wants from one minute to the next

    Advice to Management

    Move the owner to a retirement home and run your hotel like a hotel should be. Re-invest in the asset and your people.

    Pros

    Love working for IHG because I Love the loyalty program, but they don't follow IHG standards. This company pays well but you're basically selling your soul to the devil for money.

    Cons

    Terry Tognazzini is an eccentric, micro managing loon! Do your self a favor and keep looking. Terry does not care about customer service, he just wants everyone to do things his way which by the way never makes sense. When a manager is talking to an upset guest, Terry will pull him away just so he can talk to him for hours about nonsense and upsetting the guest even more! The front desk is stuck with this distraught guest!

    Advice to Management

    RUN! Management is a joke at this place! Management are nothing more than Terry's patsies. Your career is short lived because no matter how well you do, Terry will say you failed him and fire you.

    I worked at TOG Hotel Properties full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I do not have anything nice to say about the property that I worked for.

    Cons

    Upper Management is not allowed to do their jon, due to obsessive micro-management. The sales techniques for this property are complely outdated and uncalled for. Spent hours and hours in useless meetings when we could be doing work. The owner micromanages all hotel members untill they loose their mind and quit. Upper Managment will run your clients away. The property that I worked at was not in good shape, as they could put more money into the hotel. You will learn nothing, except how to suck up to managemnt. If you do sell anything, others will take credit for your work. If you see this property listed, do not bother applying. It is a waste of time and will suck the life out of you. From day one, I was warned to find another job asap. It did not take me long to figure out how horrible the property that I worked at really was. The first week I was there, I literally had no job to do. I was hired as a corproate sales manager and my segment was changed three times within the short period I was there. The entire property is a revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    Do what is right.
