Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Utah – April 25, 2017
As this was the second hotel that I have worked at as a college student during summer vacation, I was expecting a similar experience from the previous experience, and that is not what I got. There was no balance hear, between work divide and or anything; they cycled through at least three managers in the few months that I worked there and they only time you got a break was when they were enforcing the required unpaid lunch break if you were more then six hours, even if you had less then a half hour of work left. Also there was an instance of them insisting we do our job, and handle a room, that needed to be commercially cleaned after something that had happened, cleaned more then we could do as just housekeepers, and they didn't do that and put us at a bit of risk.

At first going to work were worth looking for, through out the years it got boring and tiresome, due to I were over worked and under paid, co workers coming in late on a daily basis, not getting paid for it, worked five years straight without any vacation time or benefits, worked sick because I couldn't afford health care or time off, the most enjoyable part about the job were the guest only
Absolutely no real management,constant fear of boss.
Front Desk Agent (Current Employee) – Bradenton, FL – April 20, 2017
Absolutely horrid place to work. The owner is a sexist. Your also constantly being watched on the camera. You have to be afraid to sit for 5 minutes in an 8 hour shift. They will do nothing to fix up the hotel. So people are always upset and yelling. It's a ball of drama and constant fear of losing your job.
Front Desk Agent (Part-time) (Former Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – April 18, 2017
Employees were great! The establishment was ok....lots of cosmetic problems that went untreated. It was mainly a place for the construction workers to crash while working in town. If that tells you anything.

During the night shift you run the hotel alone. My duties included but weren't limited to checking people in and checking people out, handling money and personal info, and making breakfast and coffee each morning and washing linen as needed.
Breakfast Attendant/Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Augusta, ME – April 15, 2017
The work is easy and I love doing housekeeping. I was promoted to the assistant housekeeper after being at the hotel for a couple months. The management is decent but staff is under appreciated and not paid enough. The hardest part of the job is when we have a lot of rooms and are understaffed, but we get through it. The most enjoyable part of the job is talking to guests and getting to know them and the regulars. A typical day at work is always cleaning rooms and bathrooms under the housekeeping guidelines. A typical day in breakfast is making sure the food is stocked for guests and assist them in any way I can. The hardest part of breakfast is when we have a lot of guests because our breakfast room isn't big and the guests get very upset that there isn't enough room for everyone sometimes.
Good Benefits, Talking and getting to know guests/regulars

You get to meet a lot of people from different countries. The job is all around easy unless you are a housekeeper. Throughout the day u can listen to music. Everyone gets along but lately there has been a lot of drama
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Farmville, VA – April 13, 2017
Comfort Inn was an okay place to work. My co-workers were mostly friendly and helpful. However, I worked the 3-11pm shift and I worked it alone which can be a little uncomfortable at night. It was difficult to have help at night due to no one else being there until the next shift came in.
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) – The Colony, TX – April 13, 2017
Each day starts with providing breakfast for patrons. Then there was the checkout process where you can meet a lot of interesting people. This is a customer service position that has direct customer contact as well as phone communication.
