I truly loved this job! The downfall was management. The housekeeping manager hardly had anything positive to say and once housekeepers started leaving she started sucking up to the rest of us. You had to walk on egg shells with her because you never knew when she was going to be in the worst of moods or be in a "good" mood. The team on the other hand is pretty awesome! Once you move up to being her assistant, it seems like you can never live up to her standards. I bent over backwards for that woman and hardly ever was shown appreciation. A simple thank you would have been nice.
Great team, 30 minute lunch, medical and dental (for full-time)
Terrible CEO's, Clearly this place will be out of business soon

It was very clear from the start that the upper end of the company was siphoning all of the revenue of it's hotels straight up to the top. I saw many of them come through on vacations not caring at all that the hotel I worked in and many others couldn't afford to buy amenities to put in the rooms, or have water fountains in public areas, or afford to fix the computers we are supposed to have available to guests. All of the troubles of the hotel were put on the low end of the staff and no manager took any responsibility for anything.
No breaks, no healthcare, very few raises, no chance for advancement
good company too work for but management was that good at all company was going manager left and right and workers other than that good place too work good work environment and meet different people along way too help move on and bunch out...

Working with Cambria Suites was not hard at all. The management team in housekeeping was very helpful to all staff. Fast pace never a dull moment. I enjoyed the friendly guest and staff. Work isn't so bad when you work with a great team.

I learned how to not feed into certain things that are irrelevant. The most I enjoyed about my job is meeting new people. I have learned a lot from this company like leaving my problems behind. Keeping a smile on my face.

I would start my day in the office, we would all get the run down on what needed to be done right away and our list of rooms we needed to clean. We always worked as a team and helped each other out.
While I was working there I learned the meaning of team work, and when you have a great boss how smoothly things can go, and when you work hard it pays off. I've never had a manager have so much respect and care for their employers as I did working for this company.
The management and the boss of this company treated everyone with respect, and if something came up and it was important they always understood. All the managers of the different departments were always there and answered any questions you had worked well with their employers.
The co-workers I had there were also very great to work with. If they finished their list of rooms they had they would always be more than wiling to help. No matter how stressful the day was you knew you always had someone there for you and that always makes a great place to work at.
I think the hardest part of the job was sometimes you had to get rooms done quickly so people could stay and the rooms and they had to be spotless. other than that I loved that job. Also the second hardest thing about the job was having to leave and come back to New Hampshire.
The most enjoyable part of my job there was the people I worked with and the management, also the people that were regulars and stayed there all the time always made your day.
Free lunches, nice notes from the people that stayed in the rooms

A typical day at the hotel is managing the rush of large groups of guest enjoying the complimentary breakfast and the mass check out of the guests usually occurring around 10am-11am. Then the day slows down and in that time you prep for the night shift, handling any special requests or necessary accommodations.
Housekeeper/Floor Supervisor (Former Employee) – Traverse City, MI – May 5, 2014
Best place I've ever worked. It was such an honor to be a part of the team! I only left because I had to relocate! Cambria and the management are amazing! Fair pay, equal opportunities for advancement. Love this place! They appreciate their employee and treat everyone wonderfully with holiday parties and occasional free lunches for the staff!
Guest Service Agent (Current Employee) – Columbus, Ohio – January 16, 2014
This hotel is American owned and operated and is a pleasant place to work. There is just no room to advance. If you need a steady reliable job then this would be great as long as you are happy with what you do.
