    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at The Allerton Hotel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meeting people from all walks of life.
    Cafteria serves free good food.

    Cons

    Shifts very between morning, mid, evening, and overnight.
    Difficult to advance in company.

    Advice to Management

    Show some appreciation to your staff.

    Pros

    - room for promotion (though mostly due to high turnover rate)
    - competitive salary
    - independent property, which allows for flexibility in practices

    Cons

    - inexperienced management
    - little to no worker pride
    - under-staffed and over-worked = unhappy employees
    - high turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    - improve communication - drastically
    - take care of employees and treat them fairly
    - work as hard as your under-staffed employees do

  3. "Unlike anything Ive ever seen"

    Pros

    Location. Thats the only pro which is also the only reason guests come there

    Cons

    Everything else. Very inexperienced upper mgt afraid of their own unionized staff.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let front line staff run the hotel just because your afraid of the union. Ive never seen or heard anything like this before.
