Don't trust anyone
Employee (Current Employee) –  Savannah Historic District, GAJune 13, 2016
No one owns up to their own mistake. They always point the blame at another person.They do not care about the morale of employees. No one is happy here. New GM talks to you like you are stupid. When you ask him to explain he just repeats the exact same thing but slower. Employees are leaving once per day at this hotel. New GM does not care about staff and will run hotel into ground.Run away from this company in Savannah.

Nothing

No life, you work all the time can't keep staff

Desk Clerk (Former Employee) –  Valdosta, GAMay 31, 2016
Worked for 6 years,never once late never once called in sick. Worked every shift and aNY time they needed me. New management came in Dec 2014 they fired us one by one. Stupidly I thought it wouldn't happen to me boy was I wrong. GM only cares about their bonus and loyalty and dedication mean nothing. 25 years in hospitality and 1st time let go. HR does not care eitger.

food and beverage manager (Former Employee) –  Tuscaloosa, ALMarch 10, 2015
Inadequate training. You're thrown in a sink or swim environment. Very poor pay for the amount of work the company expects out of you. You're asked to run their restaurant, work numerous shifts as well as handle all catering and banquet events with minimal staffing. Salary offer is a joke compared to other hotels. You're on call 24/7 even though your restaurant hours of operation aren't 24/7. The company completely depends on customer reviews to base and judge your ability to succeed.
Pros
discount through marriott on hotels
Cons
long hours, no family life, low salary, poor benefits

Worst Hotel Management Company in the Country
Manager (Former Employee) –  FloridaOctober 31, 2012
It was very disorganized, with upper level management talking about employees and guest in a demeaning way. General Manager was very threatening and conniving, never appreciated the hard work and commitment of his employees. Eventually everyone who loved their job gave up and quit because nothing ever changed, even after speaking with management about these issues. Employees have no outlet to discuss pertinent issues they are concerned about. Even though they are told there is an "open door policy" and if they have an issue they can report it anonymously, this is not true. Very disorganized from the top down, and manager turnover rate very high.
Cons
lied to, never supported, retaliated against for wanting to improve employee morale, wages below industry standard

Watch Your Back Enviroment
General Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 15, 2015
HR is NOT your friend! They, like most HR departments, are there to protect the company, and they do that very well. GM training consists of a total of 4.5 days in Dothan listening to the various corporate departments tell you how special they are. Be prepared to sleep through the HR and especially the recruiting portion of the class.

Evidently, they had a GM who worked for them for several years before they were caught being a" little less than honest" and now every policy and procedure they have in place is a result of this. They literally have a policy and procedure for the policies and procedures, be prepared to not be trusted.

LEARN TO SAY YES TO EVERTTHING YOUR ASKED. LBA does not want General Managers, they want robots who are reactive, do not think for yourself...that's not what your paid to do.

If accepting a position at LBA, be prepared to "WATCH YOUR BACK" Most everyone at the corporate level is always ready to throw you under the bus to make themselves look good. The RDO's are all scared of loosing their jobs which means you will have no support, your RDO will not go out on a limb for you. If you accept a position keep a detailed diary, do whatever you can to stay off anyone's radar, keep a very low profile, and always be looking for another job. You are under a microscope from the moment you arrive and make sure you do not make the mistake of trusting anyone above the property level.

Don't be offended by the emails you will regularly get that state if you fail to do something you will be terminated, its just their culture. LBA's favorite motto
  more... is "perception is reality", you will hear it a lot, especially from HR. I wonder if Hitler's perception was reality as well? Must have been, I think that is where they got it.

My perception? LBA is probably not the worst company you could work for, but it is very close.
