Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – February 17, 2017
This work place was more of a slower pace than the other jobs i have worked. We took phone calls from customers looking to book hotel rooms. with the help of management it made the job easier and more comfortable. i enjoyed interacting with customers.

I did kind of liked this job, but there is absolutely no room for advancement when you're in sales. When a better job comes open, the interview process for someone within the company is a waste of time. They pretty much only hire from outside. The pay for sales is not good (under $10/h), and the healthcare is expensive. Vision and Dental are pretty good, though. Co-workers are nice, but keep to themselves mostly. It's a good job if you're a student, but not for someone looking for a career.
Free gym and shower room, nice team leads
Pay, no room for advancement, benefits aren't very good.
Company doesn't treat employees as people, just "workers" and numbers.
Manager (Current Employee) – Seattle – October 16, 2013
Corporate culture is unsupportive and dismissive of the field. Takes years to address recurring problems with employees and violations of policies. Low-wage workers treated as if they are nothing by upper management. They have a vice president who travels around and he makes sexually suggestive comments to hourly staff, racially charged jokes to management staff, and has been with the company for many years. He is the example of the company. The good managers are pushed out and away because they are overworked and under appreciated. Not a good place to work at all!
The company itself if horrible. Bad culture and no one to listen or solve anything.

The major flaw of the Radisson Blu Aqua Chicago is that is does not hold employees accountable for their work performance (Good or Bad). Below standard thrives here. The property is owned by a Shiek from Qatar so management does there own thing until a new policy is spontaneously implemented. The HR office is a place for getting yourself in trouble if you speak up about concerns. Other most problematic scenario is the cafeteria food. Its made of left overs from the banquet functions. Employees refuse to eat. While many of the departments are evolving to be efficient others are still not caught up due to the HR office not being run adequately. The Radisson Blu is a non union property.
Good clentele. Great neighborhood. Follow the rules and management will leave you alone.
Startup with many grey areas, No advancement, No Union
Former Manager (Former Employee) – Radisson Blu Philadelphia – October 19, 2014
This place has the worst reputation which is well deserved. Employees treated poorly and as if problems with property are owned by them and not the result of absentee Executive Team. Worst HR department for activities there is no unity and attempts are fake, forced and uncomfortable. Food in cafeteria is disgusting. Overworked and under appreciated mo matter what position. Carlson team are schmucks who lack professionalism and reward other no talent schmucks that will laugh at their inappropriate jokes and feed their egos. You will be thrown in with little to no guidance and then counseled and threatened with write ups if things are not done properly. By far the most poorly managed hotel. New owners more concerned about paying for renovations then paying their skeleton crew staff who do the work of two positions in a normal hotel for less pay. Hotel has bed bugs and vermin issues, frayed towels, holes and stained sheets. Housekeepers treated like slaves.
