    Has anyone here worked for the Holiday Inn corporation? What experiences did you have and would you recommend working for them? I was asked to give a seasonal proposal on a local Holiday and I was told that the corporate headquarters in Memphis would be making the final decision on the contracts. I'm not even sure they understand that the contract is for three years (the maintenance man does not have a grasp on the language yet). Any information you have is greatly appreciated.

    We don't have a Holiday Inn, but we do have a Holiday Inn Express. I bid on them last year, did not get the contract, and now am glad that I didn't. They fired one company midway through the season, because another company claimed they were not using the correct amount of salt that was specified in the contract. I know the company that was doing the work that got canned, and they were not doing a bad job. We had a guy come into town last year, that was stealing accounts. They did tell me when I submitted my bid, that they would send it to the home office, and it would be their decision. Not sure if this helps any.

    You should consider the frozen moisture that precipitates from the atmoshere, attaching to the terrain forthwith you speak of. Figure the geometry therein, thus relating to the geographic region in which you reside. Then you shall find the answers that ye seek.......Sorry ........I stayed in a Holliday Inn Express last night! HEE HEE HEE;)

    Alot of holiday inns are independ owned such has here in my town we have done the one here for 10yrs but we are only hired has subs has the owner of the place has a decent chevy pickup with a vplow they pay us per time when either the snow is more than the owner can handle or hes gone out of town, imo i think hotels and motels are a real pita tons of cars to work around and in our case limited places to put the snow we get paid 100 per hour and stay has long has the little fellow needs us so i dont complain however just saying alot of headaches involed.
