Stressful environment with poor management .under staffed with work culture of lean and mean work style.Hardest part was being the only maintenance man with A 300 room property with no help.challenging but wears you out eventually.
Guest service agent (Former Employee) – Collinsville, IL – January 20, 2018
Great coworkers. I made wonderful friends and loved the management on a personal level. But- when it came to leadership management was very poor. They care about employees personal lives but they don’t care about them when it comes to the job perspective. I would NEVER suggest working as a guest service agent. Horrible people everyday, always get yelled at, management doesn’t support, very short staffed, customers are always very rude, there are ZERO breaks available. When asked owners of company why, their response is the position is an on call position and they don’t care. The solution- have a manager who is sitting at their cushy desk work the front desk for employees while they have a break. Every other hotel chain can somehow implement this idea. Struggled to use the restroom one time a day, no lunch breaks, and standing in one spot will take significant tolls on your body. No room to grow in this company at all. Just not worth getting talked down to when one can go elsewhere and find a much better work environment. The company is very small minded, has no desire for change and better implementation.
Guest Service Agent (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – January 4, 2018
Working for the Drury Inn & Suites was so fulfilling. Between the constant guest interaction, the positive and upbeat staff and managers, as well as the quality care and concern for each employee, it was definitely a company I could see myself working for long term. I was sad to leave and hesitant to move somewhere else.
Excellent employee care, great benefits, quick-paced environment

Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – December 29, 2017
The Management was wonderful, The co-workers were friendly, and the guests were fantastic. They paid great if you did your job correctly, the insurance was wonderful and I miss working here. If you have the chance to work for the Drury, take it they are all so great!

I often helped out other departments throughout the day. Working in Drury Inn was a safe environment and everyone that works there are hard workers and kind. The management team always try to help out and make sure everyone is doing okay. However i do dislike that management would often change your work schedule of the week and not notified the workers that they changed it. The hardest part of the job is that i always have to do set ups alone because the other workers do not want to learn how to do it. The most enjoyable part of the job is joking around with everyone
Good Coworkers, Work as Team. Management was good
Not having consistent work schedule, lifting heavy objects alone

Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) – Lafayette, LA – December 18, 2017
Drury Hotels are a family owned business and treat you like family. The pay isn't the best, but it is a pleasure to work for them and you get to work alongside friendly folks. The training is adequate and you won't be left alone until you are ready. Help is readily available whenever you need it. A great working atmosphere. They keep on top of building improvements so you won't have to worry about a crumbling infrastructure.
Family friendly and a good place to get experience.
Night Auditor (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – December 9, 2017
I had worked in numerous hotels in Louisville and none expected more from their employees than Drury. Conversely none paid or had the benefits that Drury affords their staff. So if you can handle the stress of putting in a very full 8+ hours of work then explore joining them. If not, don't waste your or their time.
Breakfast Attendant (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – November 21, 2017
it is a wonderful place to work if you are interested in furthering your skills in customer service and hospitality. I really like the fact that you can get overtime whenever you need and also you get an understanding of the guests lives and get to know them on a good level.
