Housekeeper in Brigham City:
"How is this legal?"
Pros: I was able to witness firsthand, the abuse and neglect of my fellow coworkers...being paid 3.50$/room-piece rate..with each room costing the customer close to 100$/night, the customer has every reason to believe that their room will be actually clean and their is NO reasonable expectation that a customer will tip the housekeepers. The housekeepers are told that if the rooms arent clean by check in time that they can be fired (expected to complete their remaining rooms without pay) or pressured/invited to QUIT their job. I like having MORNING PRAYERS with housekeeping manager..but disagree with GROUP HUGGING..as the employees feel obligated to participate when its asked for by mgr. I await lawsuit.
Cons: I do not care for the religious descrimination, (Housekeeping mgr has openly and proudly stated she will only hire people of her LDS faith) or the favoritism (e.g.; "you keep quiet and do as your told and MAYBE you can be promoted if you decide to become best friends with mgmt) or their attitude towards the customer blatant and open use of illicit drugs (laughing and instructing mgr on duty NOT to call the authorities and then expecting MOD to APOLOGIZE for inquiring about the proper way to deal with situation...because it was an interruption in Motel mgr weekend) I don't agree with their policy on the use of Hampton Inn workout room/pool/hot tub by the employees during their off hrs-as its NOT allowed...also, an employee of this Hampton Inn location may NOT book a room during their time off, using the employees discount, at this location(an employee is NOT allowed to use the Hampton Inn facilities that they also work at, for any reason, at any time- outside of work) I could go on..
