"The management."
Front Desk Clerk:
Pros: This job looks and sounds easy but it is not. There are many rules to follow, and processes that need to be followed. This allows structure in the workplace. It makes me feel safe.
Cons: The bad is actually the good. By were we are located, rules are constantly being broken, and cause trouble in the hotel, and me who tries to follow them. Management does little to do anything and blames the clerks for things that happen in the hotel and does nothing to correct it. Management allows very questionable people into the hotel and allows them to stay for long periods of time with out paying, and if the guest leaves without paying his bill he blames the clerks for it, even though we tell him about almost daily. Also he sometimes allows them back, whether or not they pay their back bill or not, its up to him, and allows them to rack up another one.
