Nice people bad management

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Pay wasn’t that good the people were nice to work with though. The benefits seemed good when I got hired but they never ended up giving me the benefits the entire time I worked there as a full time employee and I worked there for a year.

Great place for career minded

BW is a great place to work because of the strong management and empowering workplace culture. I've been in the industry for 35+ years so it's not my first rodeo. Anytime you are still LEARNING and developing at this stage in your career is a testament to working for BW.

Pros

Management and culture

Cons

the pay could be more competitive, benefits are great.

Worst place I have ever worked. Do your self a favor and don't bother, unless you are desperate

Have been in this business over 25 years, worst job I have ever had. Management has no idea what they are doing. In 8 months of working there I stopped counting after I seen 30 employees come and go. Truly a bad work environment

Pros

Nice view

Cons

Management has no clue how to run a business, treat staff, or cater to guests needs

No benefits, underpaid, remote location, absolutely terrible management.

Terrible management. No PPE available at front desk throughout most of covid, lied to staff about guests quarantining with covid, generally cheap and dishonest.

Best place to work

Meeting new people and hearing their story's was the best part of the job, co workers and management was all good. They trained people good. The boss was very fair person, she praised your good and corrected the bad, which made us better employees. The owner of the motel even took all his employees on a helicopter ride which was great. Something I never experienced.

Fast paced and hard job at times. Though there are times when we do have lunches and fun days.

Though the people that i work with are great. There is always a competitive nature at work among some of the coworkers. There should be teamwork with all ur coworkers..not just half.

Pros

You get a % off ur stay at any best western. U get full use of the facilities for free

Cons

Can be fast paced and stressful. No weekends off

Pros

Secure hours and crew

Cons

It can get very busy, very fast.

Lots of opportunities

My main duties is a Night Auditor, but there are many opportunities to learn about different aspects of the hotel / hospitality business, and how to run a business in general.

best western

Productive and fun place to work, everybody helps anyone that is in need of help with the rooms. the workers are great and i wouldn’t recommend for a first job. it is very fast past and you have to have very good time management skills for this type of work. it took me a while to get used to it. overall i would recommend this job to anyone that has cleaning experience!

Pros

cheaper hotel rooms

Cons

very fast paced and long hours some days

Great people and fair management

As a banquet server, I felt I was treated fairly and felt welcome within the company. Management was very understanding about absences and taking time off.

Pros

Free dinners most of the time

It was a great place to work, and you were always asked if you were happy with your shifts. Made life long friends

Clean and well organized business, both for Front Desk personnel and for the Housekeepers. Management was easy to approach for questions or concerns. All staff worked excellent together,, and no one was left behind....team work is the dream work.

Pros

Gifts lunches dinners parties.

Cons

Not always enough hours for everyone

Breath of fresh air

Of course we all long for that one position that one company that allows you to maximize your creative talent. This is it. Your hard work will not go unnoticed. The owners are very sincere and down to earth but have a strong ethic in beliefs. This is your one opportunity to join in to this group of team members. I’m still going on three years in love with my work and life balance here. It’s is an absolute misfortune if you don’t take the opportunity to observe this culture.

Pros

Fair wages, great benefits, team culture, promotions, opportunity to grow

Cons

Absolutely Non. If you find one your not team material it’s up to you to make it the best.

If you like to stay quiet its a good job but if you chat that ammo to get you fired

Over all I had not the best time. From having a verbal schedule, then being fired for 15mins late after being praised for my work. Over all i dont recommend here until new management.

Pros

Clean building

Cons

Drama, bad management.

typical hotel restaurant.

environment was typical for a hotel restaurant. Chef and cooks were very slow to start working when no one was watching and usually miserable to be around. I experienced a small amount of bullying from at least one of the cooks here. The food produced was of the typical hotel quality. wages are poor.
