Inventory Supervisor (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – August 25, 2014
A typical day for me begins during the early morning hours. Each day before an inventory, I gather all items needed to manage an inventory. Depending on the store type, that will determine the amount of counters I will be needing to complete that specific store. I am responsible for making sure all equipment (terminals, laptop, printer, ladders, etc.) are available and in proper working order.
I have learned to be even more patient with new employees, as they have not done this type of work before. I am responsible for ensuring that those employees are properly trained and understand each stores specific way of how their inventories should be ran.
Management listens to Supervisors (which I currently am) as we come to them with concerns in regards to the flow of jobs, the counters assigned to us for a specific job, etc.
My current co-workers are very motivated individuals and all have their own unique personality. Team morale is a big portion to this job & to other jobs that may be more difficult.
The hardest part of the job are the hours that are scheduled. Most inventories that are scheduled start at 5 a.m. or 6 a.m. That means that we're leaving the office between 2-4 a.m. depending on the distance.
The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know different District Managers, Store managers, their staff & their customers.
Guest Service Agent (Former Employee) – Dallas-Fort Worth, TX – January 18, 2018
The only positive I can think of in regards the job is the people I worked with. As a company I surely do not understand how they don't seem to care about a property that has continued to fail in upkeep. This company also owns another hotel w/in a mile of the 1 I was working for, that seems to be the 1 they focus on because it's not failing. If your guests keep bringing up the same issues in your guest surveys why on earth would the company not try to fix this. The rooms are in desperate needs of renovations as well as the building itself.
Insurance is a joke..they cover $100 it's more like a discount card ..I would take ObamaCare anyday if I was able to afford the high deductibles.
