Fast Paced and Entertaining

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I love working in the service industry. Holiday inn gave me the opportunity to try out many different roles. Management changed a few times while I was working and this created many challenges. Loves my co-workers though.

Pros

Benefits, hours

Cons

Split shifts, stressful

Productive and fun

Productive and fun place of work. It’s a challenge to retain and find staff in this small town though. It’s a family owned business and the owners are very nice people.

Pros

Free meals and staff accommodation

Cons

High turn over

Room to grow

Good place to get experience on your resume. They teach you in different departments but there is a lot of politics.

Pros

Can grow with the company

Cons

To much politics

Share your experience to help others

At first, it was very stressful, too much too do for one person I mean too much rooms too clean for one person. Food was okay.

It was stressful to be honest and a lot of pressure too finished your rooms. Too much too do for one person! Except for that everything, was good. It was a good experience after all.

Pros

Good

Great coworkers, poor management

Seems fun at first, but the more you get into it, you realize the manager cares more about what movie she’s watching on her iPad and what skipthedishes order to place constantly…. Uncomfortable work environment once fire evacuees took over the hotel. We were prepared or ready to handle this type of thing… it was and still is bad- good luck

Pros

Cool coworkers

Cons

Unprofessional Manager

Pathetic location

Unless you stuck your head far up managements butt there’s no respect. They did care for you safety you never got help when you did get busy. You’re expected to watch the restaurant and bar ALONE (it’s a downtown location with TWO entrance) AND do room service. Oh and take no breaks. And when you did ask some one to watch the restaurant for a break it was a big deal. If you were one of the favorites you were allowed to do whatever you want and those of us who actually worked for nagged at basically to pick up for the other peoples slack.

Pros

Leaving

Cons

Everything. I’m embarrassed of this place.

Toxic management

It is a great place to learn for beginner or starting working in hotels. Staying there too long will probably just cause some nasty drama for you. The managers really thrived on having power over lower employees and causing unnecessary drama between the staff. Funny thing is none of them are educated. The managers just got there jobs because of luck. Overall the benefits and some co workers were super enjoyable to see every day! There was alot of good memories still. Even though the work place was quite toxic. There’s alot of never dull moments when you work in hotels!

Pros

Some co workers are like family, benefits, overall work..

Cons

Trashy managers, toxic environment, unnecessary drama

Immediate Manager is an old school miserable person

Doing the daily tasks in guest rooms were straight forward and mostly easy, but dealing with my Maintenance Manager was very stressful. I became stressed thinking about coming to work due to never knowing how my immediate Manager was going to be that day ie the mood he was in etc, plus the worker I worked with the majority of the time & trained under mostly had an ok attitude and he helped me alot but whenever I'd forget a tools name or how to do a certain step in repairing a heat pump etc he'd get snarky which was annoying

Pros

Great staff other than my dept(maintenance)

Cons

Immediate Manager was moody and miserable

Traumatic place for me

I had the greatest work experience with some great people. At the same time, the place taught me not to trust so easily. It scares me until this days.

Friendly environment

Cons

Mishandling Serious problems

Great Housekeeping Manager and Friendly Coworkers

Housekeeping manager is very kind and very supportive. Cares about you as a person and friend before a worker. Cares about your home life and family, celebrates birthdays and makes every workday fun. Is leisurely when asked for time off. Will help you get the work done. Great boss, only hires great people. Worked with them for over a year. I quit when I went to college. Cant say enough about this place

Pros

Caring Manager, not long workdays, pays higher than minimum wage

Cons

Customers can make a real mess, rarely tipped for hard work
