This hotel was dump when I came on board. Eventhough it was brand new and had just opened in march '08, the rooms were dirty and the bed linen and terry that they used (and kept using!) was full of yellow stains.

When I came on board I took action. I hired the right people and started spot checking on employees. I stayed nice with all but was firm in my actions. This place turned around so nicely. The owner (and his wife), however, had absolutely no regards for their employees personal lives. After one incident they made me fire employees (eventhough we all know it takes 3 strikes!!!) They didnt want to give anybody any benefits and when they found out that their own handbook showed that they did holiday pay, they made me take that information out of the handbook.

I had only been on board for about 2 months when they told me they were going to let me go. For what? Then come to find out that they had hired somebode else already 1 month after I got hired. One month! This did not make any sense to me. I had put so much hard work in this place. I had made al lot of long hours because the place was already falling apart (and Tropical Depressions and hurricanes really dont make things any better if they are already falling apart!!)

Then I found out the real reason for my termination... The new guy was a buddy from back home Ohio! They fired me because they wanted to get a friend in!! That is ridiculous! You fire people for good reason and with warnings but not because you want to replace them with a friend.

#1 UPDATE Employee

I believe that everything You said it s truth about Microtel hotel

AUTHOR: Kiki - (U.S.A.)

I am working there so I know from the first hand that we are all working as mules,our supervisor cutting our hours off that we have earned and she s also rude to employees.We employees don t have any kind of rights,we have minimum wage of 7.25$ and nothing from benefits.The supervisor and the rest of the bosses get bonuses because cutting our hours and company makes profit and the funny thing is that they are employing more people and to us they are cutting our hours which we don t have enough ,just to pay us less and get in theirs pockets more so I m asking myself where is the justice?!

#2 Consumer Comment

Well...

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

Florida is an "At-Will" State. This means that you can be fired for any reason at any time(even if it seems unfair). There are very few exceptions such as items that would be covered through the EEOC, or if you were under a written document that stated otherwise. There is no such thing as "Three Strikes" in an At-Will state. It can be one-strike(or even no strikes) and your out.

The good news is that if you were really this super employee you should have zero problems getting another job. Perhaps your next employer would even fire current staff to hire you.

Welcome to the world of business.

#3 Consumer Comment

They did not need a "cause" to fire you.

AUTHOR: Peter - (U.S.A.)

An employee can be terminated at any time, with or without cause, and with or without notice. This is perfectly 100% legal. There is no rip off here.

If you do not like the law, perhaps you should only enter into employment situations in which you and the employer sign a contractually binding agreement which states you will remain employed for a designated length of time.

Welcome to the real world.
