Pros: great staff to work with..

A fun place to work but very little compensation and advancement opportunity
Guest Service Relations, Night Auditor (Current Employee), Greensboro, NC – November 27, 2013
Pros: kind staff, and good communication
Cons: low compensation especially for 3rd shift hours, no room for advancement, not much of a challenge for honing one's skills.
I enjoyed working for Motel 6 because the management and my co-workers were very kind hard working people. However I noticed corners were sometimes cut and advancement for compensation was never discussed or addressed. There were many employees that would come and go due to these issues. Overall I would consider this a good gateway job for other opportunities – more... in a laid back environment. – less

Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee), Kalamazoo, MI – November 18, 2013
A typical day at work is coming in and checking in guests who need a place to stay for the night. I keep logs on who I have sold rooms to, balance the cash drawer, use basic office equipment ( computer, fax machine, telephone, credit card machine), tend to any customer needs or complaints, and keep the lobby looking presentable to incoming guests. Management – more... is unorganized and needs to work on emphasizing their expectations instead of just assuming you know them. The co-workers are friendly, but have a hard time understanding issues that may arise and try to point fingers instead of take responsibility, because they are afraid of what management will think (i.e. unorganized). The hardest part about this position is the inconsistency of what is expected of this position, as well as one moment you could be really busy and the next moment you could be really slow and have nothing to do nor have an expectation of what you should be doing if the job is slow. The most enjoyable part about the job is that I am gaining experience towards what I would like to have as a career someday, which is to manage a hotel or resort. – less

Once we all got started I go around checking on the housekeepers and check their rooms and see anyone needs any help. Management was always on us wanting us to move faster – more... and get our work done without caring how clean the rooms where. I enjoyed my job for the most parts because I had a great team. – less
