    Pros

    As a Brand Hampton has to be by far the Best with all the support offered to employees it allows any employee the opportunity to grow professional. I am grateful for the experience I received working at a Hampton Inn.

    Cons

    The biggest issue I found was with ownership and the constant battle over following how the owners wanted things done and being able to follow brand standard. Compensation for the job done wasn't acceptable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    setting boundaries is a must with this particular company and make sure compensation is given.

    Pros

    An overall great company to work with to gain experience in the hospitality industry, greatly improved my customer service skills and made great connections with employees and guests alike.
