A typical day at AmericInn included preparing and setting food out for breakfast for guests. Replenish silverware, dishes, food and stock. Keep breakfast area clean and orderly and set up for special occasions and events. I learned how to work and serve large crowds of people and to treat customers respectfully. The hardest part of this job was when the hotel was full and had to keep up with replenishing foods, dishes ect. The most enjoyable part of this job was knowing that the customers appreciated all of the hard work with keeping up.

If you need to make money and work for a flexible management team, this is the place for you! Schedule can be a little inconsistent but overall once you're doing being trained the job is very easy to maneuver.

Great Hotel. Questionable management. Owner is amazing lady. Super sweet. Guest are always wonderful. You meet a diverse group of people and you create relationships with long term guest. Housekeepers are extremely hard working.
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Forest Lake, MN – February 17, 2018
Needed a lot of work when it came to management and how to keep good workers. A lot of turnover. Not fair with raises and/or benefits. This is something that the company needs to work on and being able to grow within the company.
A friendly work environment with supportive and understanding managers, owners, coworkers, and front desk attendants

The managers were great leaders and fair in scheduling. The coworkers were supportive and kind. I gained a lot of experience in cleaning, organization, being time sensitive in the frequency of my progress on shift. I recall a time when there was an outbreak of flu that had most of the staff out sick. I took a few shifts outside of my normal hours to clean and service every room in the hotel. There was a total of 44 rooms in a 7-8 hour shift.
flexible hours, great beginner job, great interview
Front Desk (Former Employee) – Eau Claire, WI – December 15, 2017
The current manager is great to work for and really puts in the effort to make sure everyone's schedule works out. Even though shifts are 8 hours each, some accodomations can be made.
There are a lot of turnovers which makes it hard to occasionally find replacements and having 2 people per shift switching off days is kind of hard if the other person on that shift cant cover. Number of staff for desk would be nice if increased by one or had staff for specifically on-call scheduling.
The overall work environment was great. Shift expectations were very clearly laid out so anyone just training in can catch on easily to what needs to be done. Work pace varies from day to day depending if slack needs to be picked up from the previous shift. Some days will be very busy and gi by fast, and some will be very slow.
Great Management, Schedule accomdations are negotiable, Somewhat fast paced and sometines slow, Never the same day as before, Good communication, Manager can be reached when off the clock for any concerns or questions
No Job Advancement, Low Staff (Or could be improved), Coworkers don't always do their job leaving more for the next shift

While working at Americinn I did not have the greatest management, but I do know now that it has such changed and the new manager is an incredible person to work for. I did overnights, it was hard at times but interesting and refreshing.
Front Desk Clerk (Current Employee) – Griswold, CT – September 24, 2017
Overall, I am satisfied with my job at AmericInn. Unfortunately, they have been bought by another hotel chain and all current employees have been released from their jobs as a result. This is the only reason I am seeking employment elsewhere.
