    I have been working at The Houstonian Hotel Club and Spa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is great and they offer excellent benefits. The managers work with your schedule especially if you're in school. My coworkers are absolutely amazing and make working there so great. It is a great company to work for if you are looking for a company to grow with, most of the employees have been there 5-30 years.

    Cons

    MANAGEMENT, MANAGEMENT, MANAGEMENT, I cannot say it enough! There is so much politics involved with management that it is insane. A lot of times being able to get things done for yourself depends on wether or not your manager likes you.

    Advice to Management

    Leave the politics and your personal lives at home!

    I worked at The Houstonian Hotel Club and Spa part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with! I worked at the club and the hours were decent for hospitality business. I was always off at 10 since they closed at 10. Managers were great to work with. Compensation was great, especially if you spend a good amount of time working there. I was there for ~100 days and I got two raises.

    Cons

    Members can be a little demanding at times. But there were also good members who I miss.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to get to know staff.

    Pros

    Great place to work at. Good benefits, friendly people, comfortable environment.

    Cons

    Not too flexible with hours, life revolves around this company. Feel like you have no free time.

    Advice to Management

    Think about how people also need to have there own life outside of the workplace. Be a little more flexible.

    I have been working at The Houstonian Hotel Club and Spa full-time

    Pros

    They are very flexible and like to work with college students. You are also able to gain experience by changing departments or campuses (hotel, club, spa). Great benefits within the hotel, club, and spa.

    Cons

    There is no place for real advancement. It can be a highly stressful job with crazy hours and the pay is not bad but not so great either.

    Advice to Management

    Managers, directors, and supervisors should also be required to take training courses as all other employees do. Also, a little appreciation can go a long way.
