Well
Assistant Front Office Manager (Current Employee), Dayton, OHMay 17, 2015
Pros: Free lunch and dinner
Cons: Management is in disarray
I started at the Crowne and loved everything about it. After 2 short months I was promoted several times and found myself unable to have a personal life. I understand working in management can do this to you but this was ridiculous. 70+ hours a week is insane. I never received benefits. No PTO. No sick leave. The pay was extremely low considering the hours I was working. I would love to find a hotel that appreciates my hard-work and is willing to let me see my family. This is not a place to work if you have a family!

Line Cook (Former Employee), Feasterville-Trevose, PAMarch 19, 2015
Pros: head chef was a very polite individual
The day would start by checking in with the chef to see which items on the line would need to be refilled or replaced. Then proceed to fill/replace items on the line. In the mean time if tickets would appear in the window then the orders would be carried out with the highest priority. The management structure consisted of a head chef, a sous chef, and a senior line cook. Those would be the people to report to.

Hotel in renovation
Director of Sales (Former Employee), Lafayette, LAMarch 17, 2015
I was hired to help chance the image of this property and get it ready for the Crowne Plaza name. I was interviewed by IHG as a Director of Sales for a new franchise owner IHG must approve this position. It was a very exciting time to work with this group to convert this hotel to a Crowne Plaza and its brand standards.

Relaxed job with good hours
Pool Attendant (Former Employee), Cherry Hill, NJMarch 8, 2015
A day at work consisted of greeting guests and providing them with towels. I would also take orders for room service at the pool. The hardest part of the job was cleaning the pool and keeping the chlorine levels right. The most enjoyable part was being able to read during down time.

Pros: free lunches
I did a high school summer program here at the crowne plaze in 2008. it was a great experience. I did housekeeping, catering, in the restaurant, dishwashing.
i learned that working in a hotel is a very busy place to work in.
the management was great.
we were part of a group, so we got to know everyone for our co-workers.
the hardest part was trying to do everything, because its so busy.
the enjoyable part we can relax when its our break,
