AWFUL
Receptionist (Former Employee), McAlester, OKAugust 15, 2013
Management, associates, receptionists, no matter who it was that worked here, they were all rude and unhelpful. I learned absolutely nothing from anyone, everything was self taught.

Great place to grow in career
Front Desk/ Night Auditor Agent (Current Employee), Columbus, GAAugust 15, 2013
Pros: eat whenever you are free and all guest has been taking of
Cons: not being able to leave for luch breaks
A typical day at work is guesting guest enacting with extended stay guest make reservations physical and over the phone

By working here I have gained alot of knowledge about the in/outs of a hotel how finances work, and how to setup and sell to company so their employees could stay with doing their travel

I have great co-workers, we all work together – more... well.

The hardest apart my job would be telling a guest a room is out of order to sell or that we are sold out for the night. My goal is to make every guest feel welcomed and have a place to stay for the night.

The most enjoyanle part about my job would be meeting new who are traveling from varies of places and never been to the city and asking alot of questions and me having all the answers to make their time here excellent to visit again! – less

Operations Manager (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALAugust 9, 2013
Job does offer good benefits but there is minimal job advancement if you do not have secondary education, and the corporate management does not understand or appreciate the day to day duties.

Guest Services Agent (Current Employee), Joplin, MOJuly 4, 2013
Pros: general manager, laid back, socilizing
Cons: really no breaks, can never get off for holiday's, and the owner of the company.
The emplyees that i work with are great and can't say enough good things about the General Manager. A typical day isn't to bad you keep pretty busy with checking in guest and keeping up with laundry. The hardest part is having a lot of guest arriving and your the only one at the front desk and trying to finish laundry for the next day. Most enjoyable – more... is interacting with some of the guest get a lot of different personallitys that you meet and get to talk to all over the world. – less

It's changed a lot from when I worked there, but like most hotels, it's not the most pleasant job to have. Too much work, not enough pay.

Don't work here!
Operations Manager (Former Employee), Joplin, MOApril 10, 2013
Pros: the hours
Cons: poor treatment of employees
If you believe in values and being treated with respect don't work here! I would not recommend this place to anyone! I was warned before I worked for them they were a bad company to work for. I wish I would have listened then. It is not a professional environment! The management all the way to corporate does not care about their employees. They repremand – more... and belittle their employees IN FRONT of other employees and customers to see. This is not how a hotel should be ran. Gossip is spread around and management gets involved in the gossip and bad mouth each employee behind their back and then when they are with that person they bad mouth someone else. They don't communicate problems and they make promises up front that they have no intention of keeping. Its one thing for coworkers to act this way but managers are supposed to be an example for others and rise above it. – less
