After looking for jobs within the pub and retail industry, Jake struggled to find the right job for him that would fit around his University schedule. Jake joined the business as a Hotel Team Member and quickly discovered that he loved customers and the fact that every day is different. He applied for our Management Development Programme – Aspire Traveller – and has now relocated back to London with his partner and transferred to our flagship property to develop his management skills and knowledge.
Claudia, Assistant Hotel Manager
Claudia joined Travelodge with very little work experience, but proved herself straight away by constantly asking for more and more responsibilities, which helped build her knowledge and confidence, and makes her a great candidate to become one of our future Hotel Managers. Claudia is one of our most successful Aspire Traveller candidates – as she is now an Assistant Hotel Manager in one of our largest sites in East London.
I have been working at Travelodge Hotels (UK) part-time (Less than a year)
Everyone in the same job gets paid the same amount regardless of age! Amazing compared to other companies
Always opportunities for overtime if you want it
And 50% off Travelodge as well as money off partner companies!!
They give you the opportunity and encourage you to become multi skilled in order to take up more shifts if wanted, the idea of furthering your career in Travelodge is encouraged also.
No obvious cons, overall great company to work for and great pay not based on age. Great work from management!
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work!
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Travelodge Hotels (UK) (Manchester, England) in May 2017.
30 minuets of asking about me and how I would be if it from working for travelodge. Then a tour around the hotel, phonecall saying I had the job the day after.
