While Briana appears to have a positive relationship with her job, commentators warned she may be speaking out too soon. The TikToker revealed in comments that she’s only been in the role for two weeks.

“It’s fun, but it gets old after a few years,” shared a TikToker.

“By convention season in every major city,” wrote a second.

“Until the Karen’s come and say no hot water, housekeeping stole something, late check out, etc.” explained another user.

In summary, she says the negative aspects of the job are things like low wages and dealing with the aforementioned “Karens”. In fact, she says her job at the hotel pays $11 an hour, which she thinks isn’t bad considering the average starting price in the area is $12.

However, Briana says her job offers numerous other benefits, including an understanding of management and flexibility in scheduling. She also says the “Karens” don’t bother her as she has had other jobs in the past where she has dealt with difficult people.

She concludes by saying that she doesn’t aspire to hotel work as a career, she is simply showing what she perceives to be the perks of the job.

While Briana appears to be OK with her salary, users on TikTok were horrified by her salary.

“You can get paid $17 at Six Flags bro,” one user wrote.

“Currently I work in a grocery store at 16 and my starting salary is 14,” added another.

“The girl starting at my Holiday Inn is 15,” claimed a third.

Still, many others said they can’t tell if Briana is happy.

As one user wrote, “Not mad at you got nothing but love for you do your thing.”

The Daily Dot reached out to Briana via Instagram DM.
