Depends where you are, I guess...
Front Desk Clerk (Current Employee) – Nacogdoches, TX – October 15, 2018
At my personal location, I'm lucky to have a great manager who does his very best to work with us. If we need a day off to handle a personal matter, he does everything in his power to get us that day, even if that means he covers our shift himself. He is very patient with everyone on his staff, and probably gives most people more chances than they would otherwise deserve. On the other hand, the job itself could use a few changes. The pay is quite low, even for my area, and there are no benefits what-so-ever. When I had applied, I was desperate for work, so did not mind at the time that it was quite literally impossible to move up in position or get any sort of pay raise. The job can be quite dangerous due to unpredictable guests, and we often have to call in local authorities for assistance, yet we are unable to make above minimum wage. My overall rating of motel 6 is: Slightly below average. If you decide to work at one, find a location with either a great team, or a great manager (I was lucky with both). Having good people around you, thus making the job more enjoyable, can mean the difference between staying for a few months and staying for a few years. But please add benefits of some kind...
Great management, great team, family atmosphere, relaxing
No breaks, no lunches, low pay, no benefits, dangerous work environment (due to area), inconsistent hours, no overtime.
