If I could rate it a 0, I would.
Honestly, this company is not worth anyone's time or effort. If you have the chance to work somewhere else, by all means do so. As others have mentioned, this company lacks professionalism, employees are treated lower than dirt, and there are absolutely no benefits whatsoever. An employee can advance in this company very quickly by kissing ass rather than actually being a good, hardworking individual. Special attention and care was given to those who were friends of the manager/supervisors. In effect, many of the employees themselves were lazy and did not contribute to the overall cleaning process. Most of the time, the job was "done" carelessly; pillow cases were done half-assed, trash could still be found in the aisles, bathrooms were not cleaned thoroughly, etc. Those who did their job well and meticulously were not appreciated or recognized and so they too lost their motivation and began to do the job in a careless manner.
Some people had been there for years and they had not been given raises.
Others became supervisors, not because they had the skills required to be one, but rather because they had befriended the manager. Most of the supervisors are incompetent, rude, and would often treat the employees in a belittling manner. They also could not handle stressful situations and then would release their own frustrations and shortcomings on the employees.
Also as others have mentioned, the manager was not concerned for the employees at all. He wanted us to believe that he was, but in reality he did not give a damn. If someone had an issue, he would direct us away from him as if he were the king of the realm and we were just lowly serfs who had no business coming to him.
The job itself is incredibly easy and would have been a decent job for people who just want a temporary job until they can find something better, or for those don't have many responsibilities in life, but unfortunately the people who run it are not worth the effort. If you are an intelligent, hardworking individual, get away from this place; you wouldn't want to stoop your level down to these low-lifes.

That little Italian fellow with the glasses that works there is so magical, when he walks by I feel compelled to thank him for being alive.

I completely agree,favortism seems to be a big problem in this company not to mention the leads/ supervisors who got the job simply by kissing ass,and from experience at this place the "leads" not only do there job ass backwards but are also rude and treat the employees like crap! Ive never worked for a company like this in my life. As far as getting fired because of depression I clearly remember that and not only is it unfair but illegal as well. Security is supposed to be done regularly but it is not,security is only done while TSA is looking over our shoulder,really would anyone feel safe flying on any plane that is supposedly "secured" by huntleigh? Absolutely not! But non of that matters just as long as Erik Maltby saves a few bucks. If you are in desperate need of a job do NOT apply at this company,no incentives not even a "hey good job". Point blank the management sucks,the pay sucks and its not worth the time or effort. The only people who stay at this job are the ones who know they cant do any better

Run by restaurant talents formerly at the Biltmore, Vee Vee and Dante, The Gallows dishes up extravagant turns on poutine and treats seasonal salads seriously within a steampunk-meets-IKEA tavern aesthetic.

The Boylston location of Bikram Yoga Boston is one of the larger Bikram yoga studios around the Boston area. It is two floors and there are many classes offered. Each day of the week (weekends included) there are classes at 9 AM, 11:30 AM and 4:30 PM. Every day except for Saturday there are classes at 6:00 PM. There are also several other classes throughout the week including earlier and later time slots. Because they have two floors and two rooms, they have classes back-to-back. Many Bikram studios that only have one studio can't do this because they need to leave time for people to come in and out of the room; leaving time for Savasana at the end of class (relaxation! the best part! which many people take for 15 minutes or so at the end of the 1.5 hr class in 106 degrees...) The amenities include a large changing area, bathroom and showers, but due to the class schedule there are often lots of people in the changing rooms. Overall, this is a great studio and I favorable for the various time options that are available.
