Would be an amazing place to work with new ownership
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Prince George, BC – 22 September 2016
The day in a life of a current Esther's Inn employ usually involves complaints about the poor condition of the establishment, and getting yelled at by the General Manager for things he refuses to repair like the two broken pools. The main problem with Esther's is one of the GM's there's two? at least that's what they say, The one runs around in shorts and an unmarked t shirt or muscle shirt saying he's management and giving customers trouble or standing behind the desk in a completely unprofessional outfit. The front desk is micromanaged and the direct manager has very little say in what happens at the front desk.

Front Desk Agent (Current Employee) – Prince George, BC – 4 December 2013
I have learned how to deal with many situations in an older hotel with a great variety of people coming to stay with us. We have people from every walk of life, cater to all kinds of functions, especially popular are the weddings in our gardens. Having an older hotel that is currently going through renovations can create some tensions for guests and learning how to listen to them and work with them to solve their issues is a key skills required on a daily basis. Yet the people we meet and get to interact with are still the best part of the job, really enjoy the new faces and the familiar faces equally and love how staff are like one big family.
Family-like atmosphere amongst staff and returning guests
Older hotel, renovations not fast enough for some guests
Chambermaid (Former Employee) – Prince George, BC – 26 November 2013
Work began at 8:00 am and ended usually at 3 - 4 pm, When finished your side of rooms then you assisted the other workers, until the job was done. Most Co-workers that were experienced were good to work with. Management lacked professionalism and tact, also included favoritism to longer working Employees. Most enjoyable was completing the tasks for the day
