pt kitchen (Former Employee), Annapolis, MDJanuary 25, 2015
meh its a living i guess. The managers never know what they're doing, and they blame us for poor training. It wasnt bad but unless you kiss butt you'll be treated badly. Anyone higher up is NEVER at fault. and if they're worked here longer and dont like you quit now. Its like HS

Front Desk Agent (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAJanuary 22, 2015
Pros: free lunches, many awards ceremonies
Cons: work loads, unreliable work schedules, conditional employee
Growth within the hotel is imminent as long as you are willing to apply. The staff is iffy and well diversified and the management is not what it seem. Ultimately keeping to yourself is the way to goes. Trust is not so trustworthy at this hotel.

Don't expect support
Front Desk (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHJanuary 13, 2015
Pros: free lunch.
Cons: no life outside of work, no support, and no stubility.
Good pay, but that was the only benefit. Fired people every week. No support from managers but then again they were getting fired too. They fired the GM, then most of the other managers. It was a sad place to work.
