I ended up with a truly amazing boss at Choice. I greatly appreciated the amount of autonomy I received and the coaching both I and my boss got from the company, which is trying very hard to develop internal leaders.
Choice Hotels International is in hotels franchise business and management . It employs up to 700 employees and owns 10 brands different hotels. The enjoyable part of the job is their annual convention.
SP 1 (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 20, 2018
This was a great place to work, however if going for a at home position understand what that means. the largest Issue I saw was people would wash out from not having a stable home life to support the type of work that was required. If this isn't a concern this is a great company.

Great Benefits, Great Pay, referral program, gym reimbursement. Company culture is always positive and encouraging. Competitive salary, paid vacation, paid holidays and covered parking. 401k contribution, company insurance program with HSA option.
Great company culture, internal movement is highly valued, you are given a lot of trust and ability to implement change early on in your career. Choice hires great people who are always open to letting you try new things, explore ideas. Management values feedback.
Lack of middle management opportunity/ability to grow within your role
Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) – South Bend, IN – April 28, 2018
Greeting my co-workers in the morning as they picked up there daily job duties to be down for the day. I then checked emails and reviewed phone messages to see if large groups needed overnight rooms and meeting rooms. Sometimes I had to meet with clients using the meeting rooms to see how they wanted them set up. Plus I also had to calling in for catering if food was to be served at the meetings. I would take calls daily about large group booking that needed 20 or more rooms. Along with people calling for large group needing a meeting room from 6 to 250 people it just varied.
Meeting different people from all walks of life
Having to deal with co-workers that a smoke smell on them after they took there smoke breaks.
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) – Blackwell, OK – April 21, 2018
I enjoyed my time with Choice. I worked with two different properties. Management at one was terrible so I went to the other where the manager was wonderful. The pay is low but you sit at the desk all day. I snjoyed speaking with guests though you get the occasional creep that won't leave the desk.

Very friendly atmosphere, enjoyed accommodating guests to make their stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Feequent group bookings of wedding guests and various other attractions and events in the community made the position very enjoyable.
Front desk hotel clerk (Former Employee) – Allendale, MI – March 29, 2018
I worked third shift at this hotel and it was fairly easy. Except when things were going wrong management would never show up, leave it to their poorly trained employees, and then get angry when when it wasn't done the way they wanted it to.
