    I worked at White Lodging full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fairly easy to get hired. Most of the people working around you are great.

    Cons

    Hospitality in general has its pros and cons. For WLS specifically, I wish they would have focused more on the people inside the company rather than their revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more into your workers to get the most out of them.

    Pros

    The opportunity this company has is limitless. In the past couple years there has been a growing influence and change in culture which is forward thinking and much more progressive.

    Cons

    Onboarding with College Managers could be improved. Next generation needs 6 months of solid training before they are ready for management. MIT programs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to lean on your talented specialists in their areas. The team on the ground is the one that has to pull things through so continuing to consult them is integral.

    Pros

    With white lodging you get 4 free room nights per yer. It is easy to contact corporate about issues.

    Cons

    The upper management is very bad. No one knows how to properly schedule, I have had to work 7+ days in a row with no over time countless times. They say they care but don't.

    Advice to Management

    Train employees better, learn how to make a schedule, learn how to staff, create a new hiring process.

    Pros

    Unfortunately there are no pros for this company.

    Cons

    Worse management ever! You will be promised a path to your career, however that promise never happens. Terrible HR department. Oh and you cannot get fired because they don't have their policies together. So if you are a responsible person, you should move on.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together!

    They have a LOT of hotels in their portfolio so there are room to go up the ladder. The hospitality industry is interesting and has many perks.

    Turnovers are quick and need more training.

    More training.

    I have been working at White Lodging full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive salary. Knowledgable and respected leadership.

    Cons

    Consistent with many hotel management companies WLS could improve work-life balance. Long hours and ever decreasing productivity numbers means not much consistency in schedules. Not very appealing to a millennial workforce.
