Pros: meeting lots of new and interesting people, lost about 7 lbs in a few weeks because of the stressful environment.
Cons: $10.50 an hour is not enough for the intense mental, physical stress there, hotel has mold and employee areas were not clean, i also didn't feel like i was working in a safe environment at night
I worked there for about three months before I HAD to leave. The management didn't seem to have a clue how the hotel was to be run. I felt an enormous amount of pressure to be perfect from day one. In addition to the high-stress, fast-paced environment, my manager held me responsible for information and skills that I had never been taught. When I failed – more... at various tasks, or did not perform them to her expectations, I felt like I could at any minute lose my job. We had to multi-task TOO much at the front desk, and while I know I excel at projects and customer service, it was extremely difficult for me to manage customers coming up to the desk for various needs, customers calling down from their rooms for various needs, management wanting me to complete detailed and focused projects all at once, and do them well - after only working there a couple of weeks. I found out that my job had been filled by quite a number of people in a short amount of time. I found out most of the management quit or were asked to resign shortly after my departure.
On the other hand, I do not think this reflects the management at the other Omni locations. In general, I believe the Omni company is a good one and has good values and intentions. The location where i worked briefly needs some serious work. – less
