Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – August 29, 2016
You are always scheduled to work a certain time, and get off at a certain time, but you always have to stay there hours afterward because the supervisor will not let you leave until everyone has their rooms finished and everything else is done. So, you have to help clean other people's rooms and do more, like laundry.
Morning Server (Alone, except on weekends) (Former Employee) – Enfield, CT – August 31, 2016
lazy management, left to figure things out by yourself, many flaws in system, no respect for employees, so many other negative things to say about this place- but not enough time. The place is also filled with drug activity, horrible environment. Many co-workers agreed with my opinion.
my typical day at work was fun and very busy. Very good work environment I would come in at the beginning of the shift I would empty out all the trash bins on the outside of the building. then I would clean the pool and make sure that all the chemicals were well balanced.
Front Desk Agent/Concierge (Former Employee) – Solvang, CA – June 15, 2016
1/4th of employees spoke English so communication was almost non existent, lots of drama and petty confrontations, took on more responsibility than job description entailed, worked for one year and newly hired employees received more pay, system and property out of date and make guests irate and uncomfortable at times.
Night cleaner (Former Employee) – Detroit Lakes, MN – September 26, 2016
Good place to work. Met many different people. I got to learn alot. And mostly everyone is really nice and helpful. Some drama occasionly but that cant be helped with such a large group of workers. But either way a very good place to work.
Working in the Hotel / Motel business was very good for me .
Night Auditor / Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee) – Hixson, TN – May 24, 2016
Before I got into the hospitality industry I was extremely shy, I would not talk to anyone I didn't know. But I soon got over this and learned that I could learn a lot from talking to the people who came in. The people were always telling me interesting things about themselves and where they lived. I got to the point where I could envision the places they were talking about and go there with them in my mind. some of the places they told me about I would really like to visit.
Learning from the guests, and being able to keep the accounts in balance the whole time I worked there.
Lead Cook (Former Employee) – Wytheville, VA – May 25, 2016
Although my time spent with the company was short term and I only worked part time, I was given the opportunity to grow and learn multiply areas. My supervisors treated me with respect, worked well with my co-workers. When the hotel was sold out I was asked to relocate to another state which made it difficult to reject. Enjoyed meeting quest needs.

General Manger (Current Employee) – Springfield, IL – June 13, 2016
I have enjoyed working for Holiday Inn Express in relation to the IHG brand and the relationship I have with the franchise. The downside is that I have been through 3 different owners and 3 different management groups. The management group can really make or break an experience when managing a hotel.

Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee) – Shreveport, LA – August 22, 2016
A typical day at work was an easy day. I learned the ins and outs of the hotel business. Management was okay. The co-workers were great. The hardest part of the job sometimes was running out of towels. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people everyday from different places.
suite keeper (Former Employee) – North Myrtle Beach, SC – May 21, 2016
I really enjoy working for Holiday Inn Express. While working their I learn how to make beds and fold towels in cute designs. I also Iearned to mange my time by getting on the clock and off the clock by a certain time. I work about four to five to days a week. The hours were not long so I had to do everything neat and organize as fast as possible. The hardest part of the job was the wait. You had to come to work early to get your linens and towels before they run out. If none was available you have to wait until they have clean linen. Then still have to get off the clock in time.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Lubbock, TX – September 21, 2016

Gather your cart that holds all your linen, bathroom products, and clip board. Change all dirty bed linen and replace bathroom products such as towels, toilet paper, shampoo, soaps, etc. Provide Customer service when in contact with customers. Manager on site are helpful when needing to answer Questions or directions for those you are traveling. I enjoy the friendly environment and organized the company is. This is a physical job so I believe this hardest part that some don't realize.
