Been working for this company which was taken over by Interstate Hotels. I've been employed for about 2 months and have yet to receive a paycheck from the company at all which here in Florida is referred to as Wage Theft. Had to get a lawyer involved. Bills are piling up, some are disconnected at this point. And I'm being taken into circles on why I have yet to reap the fruits of my labor.
Short breaks, no pay, not a professional setting, and again freel labor

Some of those nice was challanging but I never complained and they never complained about the overtime. The hardest part was stairs we had no elvator and 2 kitchens to stock wit 1 upstairs dishroom
Director of Revenue Management (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 2, 2016
There is no such thing as a typical day in the hospitality industry. Interstate Hotels promoted an excellent culture of ever changing experiences. It is the variety in your work day that made these experiences so great.
I had great job growth opportunities with advancement from Front Office Management to Revenue Management and multi-property experience.
Bartender (Current Employee) – Lancaster, PA – February 24, 2016
I have been a bartender under Interstate Hotels and Resorts for 3 years. They have wonderful opportunities for employees including world-wide employment transfers, discounts on hotels, competitive benefits and much more. I very much enjoy my employment with Interstate Hotels.
Hotel Discounts, Employee Benefits, Flexible Schedule
Management is typically "Hotel" trained instead of Restaurant trained.
Loved the relationships I've built with my customers
Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – February 23, 2016
I loved communicating with my staff at each of the hotels. We've built a relationship that made me eager to go to work. My floor supervisor wasn't very efficient in her job which made it harder to complete my job.
A typical day consist on getting together with the employees having stand up meetings every morning to review what is to be expected in order to keep a safe and comfortable workplace not only for the employees but most importantly the guest.
The toughest part of the job is when you have a heavy turn over and the majority of the hotels guest are checking out giving the housekeepers up to 26 rooms with at least 15 being checkouts.
The best part of the work day is at the end of the day when everything has calmed down and everyone is finished with their work. You get that sense of relief and everyone is ready for another successful day.
ASSISTANT GENERAL MANAGER (Current Employee) – Plainview, NY – August 3, 2015
Interstate Hotels & Resorts is a supportive management company. Hotel is face pace, very demanding and rewarding place to work. Hard to balance home and work. Bottom line is very important along with customer satisfaction.
