Great place to work and build your career in hospitality
maintenance technician (Current Employee) – Holiday Inn Express Chillicothe, Ohio – January 7, 2016
Its a great place to work and the staff is friendly and the perks make it worth while. I have been through 3 managers in 4 years so it took some getting used to their own style of managing. I will remember this job for ever.
get to use the pool with permition from the manager, 3 free nights a year, employee discounts on rooms
The room to grow for this company is extraordinary! The corporate will go out of their busy day to help the management team. In return, the management teams goes out of their way to help the employees (they lead by example). The vision they have for their company is building a powerhouse, which they have done a great job doing and continuing to do so.

Typical Days is 8am to 6pm (although 7, 8, or 9 not uncomon)
Biggest thing i learned was networking and communication between other properties, builds strength and additonal solutions to challenges faced at properties.
The management was EXCELLENT when i joined the company, Very much a family/team atmosphere. Then a new DOO came into the mix, the culture changed dramatically, as often happens when management changes.
Completely enjoyed the team of people that i worked with. very supporting, informative, and willing to help.
dealing with some of the corporate office politics, the continual stress of worry about job security.
Easily talking with my guests, building my team, working in the community, and the volunteer projects for charities.
Travel, Socialization with other Alliance Team members, Our yearly Gala

Guest Service Agent (Former Employee) – Hilton Garden Inn Chelsea, NY, NY – December 28, 2014
Providing every detail need to the business traveler including that warm welcoming greeting from staff during busy intervals of travel arrivals and departures and stays. I learned that small properties are more challenging to operate because the staffing structure is compact and less flexible. Management is authoritative but lacks motivation driving charisma and effective support. Co -workers were unique and savvy with potential advancement capabilities. The hardest part of the job was completing all the required training tests to certify for the brand. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the various challenges with optimism and witnessing the joy and satisfaction of guests as they experienced exceeding expectations from friendly, knowledgeable staff and a comfortable well equipped service residence. Feedback from guests always reminded of how comfortable guests felt to share their stories with people they felt at home around.
