I really enjoyed working here. Good atmosphere, staff was great to work with, the pay was very acceptable and the building itself is in decent shape.
I won’t beat around the bush - I was the Executive Housekeeper at this property for a few months. At first, it was fantastic until I realized that the General Manager was very intimidating, abusive and confrontational. No matter what or did or how I performed it was never enough. Now, this is fair because everybody can improve but as soon as the GM realized I wasn’t going to abuse my staff and force them to work when they were sick, I was no longer “management material”. I hope he reads this, and realizes that a manager is only as good as his team - and if they’re all miserable, it will reflect management and more importantly, the guest.
I would highly suggest working at a different hotel, despite Country Inn being a very good brand. It’s that one rotten apple that spoils the whole bunch.
Don’t work here. My husband worked in management. He was offered a wonderful salary. One he couldn’t refuse to support his family. He has worked nothing but hard for his employer. Never called in sick. Never late. The owner hired him for the summer bc he had no one to run the department. As soon as the summer died down he fired him days from his probation. This company will only use and abuse you.
I love my job. Management always takes any concerns seriously and tries to fix problems in a timely manner . Good communication with all team members . Dont have many negative things to say about this company.

Working with this company is a great opportunity to enhance your knowledge and skills in Hospitality Business. I have learned many things since day one until now. I truly believed that working experience here is a learning process everyday. Associates are helpful and knows how to deal with all the people in different walks of life. The hardest part of my job is to deal with the different issues from the guests. I know that is normal because we can not please everyone. But despite of that, we can easily solve problems because we work together with Respect, Integrity, Teamwork and Entrepreneur.
I think it begins with management. She never interacts with anyone unless it absolutely necessary. No one gets appreciation from any direction. There is no extra help when needed. There's no appreciation week. No one is taught social skills. Employees need to stay in their own department and do their own job. There is no meetings. To many chiefs not enough Indians. This place is not stable to work in. The executive housekeeper is not keeping private information to herself. Which is a no no. She doesn't tell the manager everything. The manager doesn't see everything and or doesn't know all the truth... they need to see the real deal what's going on..People leave because of this ! Team work includes everyone including executive housekeeping too.!!!! Practice what you preach. If the vacuums are junk then it's more time consuming. She didn't tell anyone that another company came in with country and suites.When a couple a ladies came in for a meeting the management pretended she did...no she did not. She was lieing...no comments. No communication. Like always. She doesn't want to spend money to make money.
Some co workers friendly
Need team and all treated fair, a raise..needs vacuums .not useless junk. Gossip and paranoia.
It's fun working in hospitality field. Where you get to meet & greet new people on daily bases bit challenging but still lot's to learn. You can encounter bad days but you gotta let it go with your smile on face be positive and confident never loose your professionalism no matter how hard the situation is.
nice people, has teamwork

Working there was more stressful than anything I've ever experienced. The management was horrible for communicating with and made things a lot more difficult than they needed to be.
I learned a lot about teamwork and how a team SHOULD NOT work. I learned that communication is key and that you need to be clear and precise with instructions. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I got to clean a lot, which is something I really enjoy. But for the most part, I was very unhappy at work.
