Not a place to work if you want to pay to come to work everyday. There is no free parking anywhere.
Hostess (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INAugust 27, 2018
There is no room for advancement! Work environment is VERY HECTIC. Always low staff when we are a HIGH VOLUME restaurant. Do not recommend this job to anyone. You will be very stressed. The servers make good money but any other position is NOT worth it.
Pros
Good hours
Cons
Pay to park

Love the guest, hate management
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Malvern, PAAugust 24, 2018
It's all in who you know, related too or sadly, sleeping with. Good, hardworking people are treated bad, while those who do nothing but are either friends with or related to management are treated like royalty. Most don't want to quit but management leaves them no choice.
Pros
Great guest
Cons
Nepotism running rampant

Nice quick pace enviroment
Kitchen Utility Worker (Current Employee) –  Ellettsville, INAugust 4, 2018
This is a nice work environment, quick paced but not a sprint. The pay is good, the hours are okay, I feel as though the management could do a couple things better, but overall an okay experience.

Horrible culture
Housekeeping Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIJuly 20, 2018
Rude coworkers, poor salary, expected to work 12+ hours a day, and sometimes 10+ days straight without a day off. No learning opportunities. Upper management was unobtainable with closed office doors.

Be helpful but stern
Guest Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Highland, INJune 28, 2018
Working at a hotel you get to meet a lot of interesting people. You need to understand that you're not going to be behind a desk the entire time. Your role is to ensure the guests enjoy their stay as much as possible while making sure you meet the correct room rates for the day. Be polite and approachable and your job will be easy, for the most part and do not take anything personally.
Pros
Meeting interesting people.
Cons
Rude guests

Good career opportunity, fast paced, behind on benefits and work life balance
Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 13, 2018
White Lodging offers a good amount of career opportunity especially if you are willing to relocate. Leaders seem to care, but often there are limitations with resources, policies and procedures. The benefits for the company are mixed, great complimentary nights at company hotels, good insurance, 401K, PTO and work life balance could use improvement.
Pros
Growth Opportunity
Cons
401K, PTO and work life balance could use improvement

Exciting but stressful
Front Desk Manager (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYJune 11, 2018
Exciting and fast paced industry and company but be prepared to work long hours and spend little time at home. Customers are simultaneously the best and worst part of this job depending on who you are dealing with that day.

Favoritism at its highest
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Teaneck, NJJune 10, 2018
They tell you that you can advance in this company internally and while this is true, it only happens when you're a managers favorite and when you kiss up to HR.
If you get a job here and you're not a kiss-up type of person try to learn as much as you can from the job you are in and then get out and find a place that values its employees and where you can fulfill all your goals.
Pros
Great healthcare, they cover almost everything.
Cons
Favoritism, no advancement opportunities

Not a great place for everyoe
Guest Services Representative (Current Employee) –  United StatesMay 29, 2018
This company can be great if you choose the right property. Some properties have been carefully staffed and trained by great management teams while many others are the complete opposite. There can be fast turnover, poor management and generally non-existent training or support at times. This company could be as great as they advertise themselves to be if they get every property on the same page and provide equal support.

As corporate as Hotels can get
Guest Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZMay 28, 2018
White lodging runs its hotels with only profit in mind. They could care less about their customers and even less about their employees. The managers get treated like royalty while regular employees get nothing. If the expect you to move up they want you to go where they tell you when they tell you, and if you decline they fire you. Avoid them if you can you will not enjoy your time with this company.

Micro Managed Toxic Culture & SHADY Gossip Filled Company
General Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 13, 2018
Overall lack of genuine care!

If you have an opinion of your own and don't agree with company initiatives/White Lodging Corporate Leadership do not express it or you will soon be forced out of your position as they do not want to deal with the reality of the toxic culture White Lodging has created.
Pros
None
Cons
Shady

Intense focus on growth - no life balance though.
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXMay 4, 2018
Great company to jumpstart career - promoted and grew a lot in first 3 years out of college. However, lack of care from corporate for employees on the field is evident. Don't expect to have a work/life balance if you want to do a good job or gain respect.

Go anywhere else.
Sous Chef/Kitchen Manager (Former Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INMay 2, 2018
The management team in Fort Wayne is awful. There are drugs running through the hotel right in front of most manager or with them, and upper management doesn't even bother with it. They could, maybe if they associated themselves withthe rest of the workforce. But, all in all just sad. No responsibility taken, lack of a clear leader in the kitchen. Half of the cooks do not know temperatures, or how to do a basic wipe down. Scary place really.
Pros
Free food, if you cook it yourself.
Cons
Dirty Kitchen, Selfish Management, No Kitchen Leaders
