Housekeeper (Former Employee), Port Huron, MI – May 20, 2013
Pros: friendly staff
Cons: worked long hours and never paid for them
It is a good job to do if you have a lot of people skills and you have a friendly approach to people. But it has a very high turn over of workers because they think its a easier job when it is not, making it very demanding to pick up workers who just walk off the site slack.

Cons: not enough hrs, under paid, more than just house keeping
A lot of great people to work with who made tolerable. Very high turn over rate. Under paid Not enough hrs, lucky if 2 days a week Owner of the hotel is awful!!!!!! I can't stress this enough. Mean, rude, – more... unrealistic. Does not care for employees. Aĺl about how to cut costs and what ends up in his pocket. Manager of the hotel is nice. No benefits Have to do outside work such as wash windows, sweep out parking lot, and pick up garbage. – less

Assistant Supervisor (Former Employee), Victoria, BC – February 10, 2015
Pros: the chance to learn any department you wanted to.
Cons: not being respected as a supervisor. supervisors are considered throw aways. not needed.
A typical day at work was full and enjoyable. I learned more and more every day I went to work as far as managing the housekeeping department. Management was good and fair, I thought. All of my co-workers – more... were exceptional to work with, it was a great housekeeping team. We were all very hard workers. The hardest part of my job was getting laid off with no warning. The most enjoyable part of my job was going to work everyday thinking it would be the last place I would work. – less
Housekeeper (Current Employee), Cornwall, On – October 28, 2014
Pros: free swimming
Cons: not knowing when you work next
I enjoy working at the Comfort Inn but unfortunately it is a seasonal position. My co-workers are very friendly and willing to lend a hand when needed. Management is understanding and willing to accept – more... any opinions or ways to help the hotel be a better place for our guests to stay. The most enjoyable part of the job is that when you arrive you are always greeted by the front desk staff and co-workers are all ready to get the work done that needs to be completed. Overall I enjoy working at the Comfort Inn. The hardest part of the job at Comfort Inn is not knowing when you will work next. – less
You are working steady until you are completed all your rooms.

Pros: you leave work when you are done.
Cons: not enough hours
Sign in when you get there. Get you assignment sheet and keys. Then go to you assigned floor. Get a cart, load everything you will need. Find out where you can start. If the room is vacant you completely clean the rooms and change the linen on the beds. If the room is occupied, you access what they are going to need and make sure they have it and also make their beds and clean the room.
