What is the most amount of times you have Applied to one specific company? It could be different job titles and different states but how many times have you applied to the same company? Sodexo , levy, compass group, Hyatt Hilton Marriott have Applied to all those 30 or 40 times over the past three years. Talk about insanity. I stopped applying six months ago I’m no longer wasting my time with people like this!
Just flew American for the first time after six months of delta. Flight boarded at the scheduled time, left on time, landed on time. I didn't realize that was a thing that could happen
What I’m about to say is extremely selfish, but I really don’t want to spend the last few “free” weeks prior to tax season with the family. I’m doing it because it means a lot to my mom. I have no friends back “home”. Also, I feel like if I had my own family or even a significant other the parents would understand me not coming home. For some reason I’m single so what else would I be doing lol now they want to travel with me when I’m home to see other relatives..

Larger chains usually carry your typical business traveller with the occasional transient reservation on the weekends. Boutique hotels seek out those spontaneous travelers providing a unique experience you won’t find at another boutique hotel. For Marriott for example there’s differences within the brand. JW Marriott and the Westin attract a certain business person while there’s no two autograph collections or tribute portfolio hotels.
The main one is probably the culture. You may feel like just another number at a large hotel chain, while at a boutique hotel, you'll likely feel like part of a family. The staff at a boutique hotel is usually closer, and they often work harder because they have a vested interest in the hotel's success.
I work at Hampton inn suites. I find that we get a lot of wedding parties on the weekends and during the week were filled with business people who travel from all over the world
A large hotel chain will have more employees and be more spread out, while a boutique hotel will have fewer employees and be more concentrated. At a large hotel chain, you may have more opportunities for advancement and training, but you may also feel like just a number in a sea of employees. At a boutique hotel, you may have less opportunity for advancement and training, but you will likely feel like part of a close-knit team
