General managers at Kimpton Hotels add to their top pay through a bonus program that pays out for hitting at least 85% of targets including employee satisfaction, guest service, and financial performance.

Staff members enjoy benefits like health insurance for part-timers, pet insurance, and a 401(k) program that matches 25% of employees' contributions, up to 5% of total salary. Team members are eligible for two free room nights in the hotel where they work, as well as discounted room rates and meals at other properties.

A little luck can make pay go even higher: Kimpton's properties have giant Wheels of Fortune where employees who are recognized by their co-workers get to spin for prizes or cash.
