Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee), Shelby, NC – October 16, 2014
Pros: not limit to breaks.
Cons: no advance in pay/ no health insurance
I did like the fact that I was working by myself. You did not have to depend on anyone else to get their work done. There was down time in between checking in guest. The weekends were busy but the time went faster. At times I would have to fix a problem with a guests room.

Night Auditor and Front Desk Associate (Former Employee), Joplin, MO – October 13, 2014
Pros: some free time to yourself
Cons: no breaks, too much responsibility, no management
I worked at this hotel for only 3 months and typical shift would include the usual duties involved with being a Night Auditor, along with all the duties that come with being a cook, maid/house keeper, front desk associate, manager and security. Being the only employee in the entire building can be extremely exhausting; causing you to be the sole person – more... who has to take of EVERTHING. Assuming you have the time to take care of all of this, as you spend most of it tinkering with the outdated technology that simply wouldn't work half the time, causing you to mess your entire job up some nights.
Management was totally non-existent. I recall seeing my manager actually in the building only once throughout the entire three months that worked there. Even on the days that he would be there when I wasn't, there was absolutely no sign of him doing any actual work. If it wouldn't have been for the employees earning only minimum wage keeping the place running, that hotel would have rotted away from non-existent management. – less
