Suggestions for improvement

  • They should improve on listening to their employees when they notice guest/ hotel issues rather than ignore them. I also feel they need to improve on communication instead of jumping to conclusions and punishing the employee. They also do not seem to care about employees personal life and expects them to practically live there. Its also selfish of the hotel to only pay servers around $2.35 an hour because they are a private family owned company. I also believe they can improve on providing employee breaks and actually feeding the employees when they are hungry. Another area of improvement would be that they shouldn't harass employees to volunteer for the community because its called volunteering for a reason.

What I like about the company

The only positive experience from working for this company was making decent money.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of them nearly forcing employees to "volunteer" for the company and they are very judgmental when it comes to being environmentally friendly. They also play favoritism and it is almost impossible to be rewarded when it is due. They only focus on the mistakes employees make and prefer employees to appear robotic rather than being unique individuals. To sum this up, this hotel is like a cult.

Yes

Suggestions for improvement

  • Value all your employees. Listen and investigate fairly do not fall victim to the mob mentality or alternative facts. Focus on the issues and let those that are accused the opportunity to respond versus others said it so it must be true. Objectivity is sorely needed here in this work place too many people in each others pockets so to speak so the cards can definitely be stacked against you if you speak out

What I like about the company

The lower level employees are nice and very friendly

What I dislike about the company

Very "clicky", if you are there for any length of time it is obvious. If you are salaried consider yourself in and valued, but if you are hourly you feel disposable. Prefer to handle "challenges" with your department within the department only. If you go to HR consider yourself gone because then it becomes no you are the problem not us or OH NO you brought the skeletons out of our departmental closet. Saw this many, many, many times then foolish me I had enough and said I think HR needs to be involved and what do you know. Only complaints they do take seriously are those of sexual misconduct because let's face it litigious backlash cost money.

Support from management

Management does not want to get involved with conflict, resulting in employee receiving a written warning. High turn over in company.

Teamwork

Co-workers are back stabbed and will get you fired

Internal Communication

The key is to not communicate with co-workers

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have meetings about improving working environment. Work harder to keep employees rather than using termination as a solution.

What I like about the company

Close to home, nice location

What I dislike about the company

I was an employee
