Red Roof Innawful experience


I was a Red Roof Inn employee and I was grabbed in the chest and my breast was shook, it also happened to another employee. I was chased by the manager while she was holding a sausage in front of her crotch screaming that its not big enough for me, while she was drunk partying with the renovation crew and some corporate employees during the renovation of the property. I was also called a queen who hit on every male guest that walked thru the door, at a company meeting with every employee there. I was also told by management that she was so horny she wanted to bring me to a room, it was too bad I was gay. After reporting all this to human resources, they told me there was going to be a investigation a month later human resources showed up did a investigation. During this the investigator told me that she knew there was wrong doing and something was going to be done to wait to hear from my district manager. When she left the manager started scheduling me for two shifts in one day, she tried to write me up saying that my drawer was short while I was having other employees count, sign off, bag and put my cash in a safe. Then I had other employees that were working with her that the district manager was calling her up and talking with her on the speaker phone on ways to have me fired, and things that my manager could do to try and write me up. I waited for a month to hear from the district manager, I kept on calling human resources to find out what was going on, they told me she was going to be in after a month had passed she finally showed up only to have meetings with every employee on how to do there job. During my meeting with her and the manager I asked her what would be happening with my case, she told me it was all in the past and she didn't want to talk about it any more. I have filed a suit with the EEOC and I am waiting for a right to sue know. I just want to let everyone know how they treat there employees and for a company that has a zero tolerance policy there was alot of tolerance. Also, while filing for unemployment because I couldnt stand to work there any longer, they denied my unemployment and during the hearing, they said that grabbing my breast and the other employees was a play by play action, because she was explaining a story to us. The company also said that she was written up with something called a possible step for termination while they were saying they did nothing wrong.

    I totally agree there is prostition going on there. There were drinking and shady characters all over the one I stayed in in Austin. I didn't know they treated their employees so crappily. No wonder the employees were irritated with me like they didn't want to be there. Now I feel sorry for the employees. Red Roof Inn should fly out of business and let these horrible management get what's coming to them.

    Hi StevenR

    Did you work for a franchisee or a company owned RR? I am considering a position with them as a manager- I'm not a crackhead and I won't fist anyone in the parking lot- LOL! Ohmyheavens: what a mess you had. I DO wonder how those people get their jobs and it seems like I'm scrutinized to death on job interviews...*sigh*

    How was it before you gave notice?

    I was a Red Roof Inn employee in Ohio for 8years. I had a spotless record with no write ups during this time. I was offered a job in another state. It was a lot more money so I gave my 2 week notice to Red Roof. That was a big mistake. As soon as I gave my 2 weeks notice my hours were cut from the 40 per week, to 32 the first week, and 24 hrs my last week. I have gotten 40 hrs per week for 8 years To make matters worse, as soon as I gave a notice, the "manager" hired one of her friends kids to replace me and gave them 40hrs... I was the only maintenance man for 8years, so I guess you could say I was the maintenance department. During my last 2 weeks the manager gave me every ### job she could think of, while the new guy did next to nothing. For example.. I was told to dig out the rock beds to replace the boarders while the kid put new pillows in the rooms. Now I'm 45 years old and the kid she is trying to replace me with is 21. Not to mention he worked for Red Roof 8 min. and I have worked for them 8 years. I didnt even want him to do it all, but a little help would have been nice. That is only fair, I thought...The next week she had me scrub all the toilets ( a 113 of them ) while her boy replaced lamp shades and changed remote batteries all day. If thats not bad enough.. I had to stop digging and scrubbing to run some of the work orders because the new kid knew nothing about the fire system or lodge net. I could of trained him but the manager was too concerned with punishing me for trying to better myself...I used one of the 10 vacation days I had left to find a place to live in the city I was moving to. I was never payed for it. When I asked the manager about it, she said its not her job! I called the district manager, and human resources. Human resources never bothered to call me back and the district manager called the next day and said he would talk to the manager about my cut hours. Nothing ever happened.. Not that I thought anything would be done.. I have seen a manager fist fight a guest in the parking lot and she still works there. Managment protects each other no matter how bad they are. And it's not just one manager.. in 8years I have worked for 7 managers. They had to fire one manager because she was a crack head and stole money. Thats about the only thing they will fire a manager for. Taking money..The others swore at employees and guests, screw people out of hours. Give all the easy jobs and weekends off to thier friends..ect. One manager even got in a fist fight with their own daughter who "worked" there too.. Right in her office!... and they still work for Red Roof. I could go on and on and on... so...Its been 3 weeks since I should have gotten my last check.. I have called every number Red Roof has and they say they are taking care of it. We shall see...Looks like I'm going to have to sue them for it... So, if your thinking about working for Red Roof, I would think twice... And if your thinking of leaving Red Roof.. I would NOT give a notice. Burn your vacation days and walk... unless you want to go through the fun I had.
