Hospitality Lodging Management


According to ISEEK, Minnesota's career, education and job resource, lodging managers in the U.S. earn on average $23.62/hour. Top earners make more than $43/hour. ISEEK: "Competition for jobs at large hotels that offer the highest level of guest services is expected to be strong. Opportunities at smaller hotels should be better. Those who have a college degree in hotel or restaurant management, and have good customer service skills and related experience should have the best prospects."

Lodging managers receive perks not often found in other occupations, including bonuses of up to 25 percent of their salary. ISEEK: "Hotel and motel managers usually receive benefits. Typical benefits include health insurance, sick leave, and paid vacation. Some hotels pay for formal training programs. Others may give managers a percentage of the hotel's profits. In addition, some hotels provide managers with lodging, meals, parking, and laundry."
