no other activities in the hotel for workers. Its just work
House Keeping (Current Employee), Dawson Creek, BCJuly 3, 2013
Pros: free lunch if the hotel is full
Cons: split shift
Housekeeping is not an easy job, it requires full energy everyday. It is a challenging job because you have to make sure the hotel guests are satisfied and comfortable with their rooms. With my job, I learned a lot of how to deal with guests, management and co-workers. The hardest part of the job is to go back to work in the evening if there are night – more... shift guests. It is overwhelming though when guests appreciate the housekeeping job. – less

Fun workplace but pay could be better
Front Desk Agent (Current Employee), Shamrock, TXNovember 19, 2014
Pros: shift hours, management, breakfast if you work morning shift
Cons: no breaks for front desk, pay could be better, rude people
I really enjoyed working here. We at the front desk have a check list to complete each day that helps us not to forget anything. The shifts are 7am-3pm, 3pm-11pm, 11pm-7am. We have a great team here and everyone is pretty respectful for the most part. The management really worked with me on having the same days off as my husband and also having off – more... for church. We have little parties every month for employee of the month and to get together and relax and talk. The management really tries hard to make sure everyone is happy. The hardest part of the job is keeping the guest happy with a smile on your face. Everyone always wants to complain about something. – less

poor management
Housekeeping (Former Employee), Williamsburg, MINovember 3, 2014
Cons: everything
Management was poor and didn't take care of situations that arose. I recommend not working for this company. Management has favorites and lets there staff get away with everything. Staff would come back from break stumbling and smelling like alcohol. The new staff had been trained in the rooms we cleaned that if the beds looked like they haven't been – more... slept in or didn't look that bad to just leave it or remake it...that no one would know that it was dirty. Really.. management was aware and did nothing – less

The Clean bandits!
Housekeeping (Former Employee), Grand Junction COSeptember 29, 2014
Pros: breakfast was provided for staff
Cons: easily replaced, not quite full time
I worked in the housekeeping department. Some days I would also work the breakfast bar. The staff are great. The hotel rooms are DEFINITELY clean. I will always choose Holiday Inn because of this experience! The head housekeepers make sure to inspect the rooms from top to bottom. (Almost with a white glove!)

Fast-paced, customer oriented business
Guest Services Representative (Current Employee), Laurinburg, NCJuly 21, 2014
Pros: free breakfast, discounted rates at other brand locations
Cons: no breaks/lunch, no pay raises, no set schedule, no job security, no advancement opportunities
A typical day at work would be to handle/process all cash/credit card transactions for those checking in/out; to answer and direct calls as needed; take and update reservations in the Opera/Holidex systems; sort, wash, dry and fold all laundry; deliver missing toiletry/linen items to guests and/or ensure housekeeping has all necessary items to make – more... rooms; restock front desk items; update room cleanliness status in the computer systems; send and receive faxes for guests and employees; other duties as requested by management.
The main things I have learned from this job are how to appropriately interact with the public to ensure a professional, friendly and enjoyable relationship between customer and business. I have learned how to multitask and trouble-shoot issues between front-desk and housekeeping. I have also learned how to appropriately approach co-workers and management when there are issues.
The hardest part of this job is ensuring proper communication between all departments and ensuring accuracy in areas where one does not have direct involvement. There seems to be an issue with this due to alliances and blatant favoritism between management and certain employees. There is also no unity or agreement between the levels of Management, resulting in contradictory instructions and decisions. Gossip is also a large problem which affects ones ability to advance in the industry or feel secure in ones position. There are no set rules or regulations for rewards, rates, schedules, or income and issues with maintenance constantly go unfixed.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with the public and the housekeeping staff, as Front Desk Clerks share many of the same responsibilities. – less

fun, good flowing workplace
front desk receptionist (Former Employee), Searcy, ARJune 3, 2014
I learned a lot in this particular job. It showed me a lot about customer service and how to always wear a smile. Management was really good about understanding any situation and showed me a lot when I asked for help. My co-workers were amazing and we always got along. The hardest part of my job would be bending down all the time, as I was pregnant – more... at the time, but all in all it was a wonderful job. I loved meeting new people and seeing regular customers all the time. – less
