Pros: opportunity, fellow management and team members
Cons: wages, ownership
The Hampton Inn provided me with a plethora of information, and I was able to manage a multi-million dollar company at such a young age. They gave me the tools needed to be successful, and to make my team thrive. I can honestly say that the Hampton Inn helped mold me into the young, head-strong and independent hotel manager that I am today. I was given so much information and opportunity at such a young age.
However, I felt as though the compensation was low for how much work and responsibility I was given. There were times where I would work 60-70 hours a week, for a month straight, and I never saw any bonuses or extra perks. However, I believe that molded my work ethic and made me want to preform better in more recent jobs, giving me an edge against other potential employees.
Working for the Hampton Inn was one of the greatest opportunities I have ever had, unfortunately I could not stay with the company under extreme and odd circumstances, but I would go back in a heartbeat if I could!
