Front Desk Clerk Concierge / Internship (Former Employee), Toronto, ONAugust 16, 2015
Pros: Free meal
This is a fast paced hotel, i have learned a lot during my 4 months of Internship work here. The Front desk and Housekeeping department are very professional, motivated and inspirational leaders. Co- workers – more... are also nice and fun to work with. They welcomed me warmly. The only downside of this job is whenever the subway is down along downtown core since The Fairmont Royal York is located in the heart of downtown Toronto, a lot of construction site are going on in this area. other than that working here is so much fun and inspiring! not to mention the free meal you get everyday for the employees :) It is my pleasure whenever i make guests satisfied. Having some experience at Royal York is definitely worth having :) – less

Lead Hand (Former Employee), Lake Louise, ABJune 16, 2015
Pros: A great place to live and work!
Cons: Some of the things we had to deal with.
The day would start with a meeting in the morning with the management, and then I would go to my shop and organise my staff. I worked with a lot of excellent people and forged friendships with them.
We all treated each other with respect and the other trades and our department were very cooperative with each other,

HomeBased Agent
Reservations Sales Specialist - Home Based (Current Employee), moncton, nbMay 27, 2015
Pros: No travelling required as I am home based.
Cons: No room for advancement and I am also on overnight's/rotating shifts.
Fairmont hotels and resorts is a very well known company. My colleagues are great and extremely knowledgeable. Great benefits as well. However, I am looking for a career that makes life at home/family time more possible. There isn't much room for advancements (shift seniority, etc.) and working overnights shifts is getting to be harder and harder being a mother to a 4 year old.

Line Cook/Prep Cook (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBMay 24, 2015
Pros: Good environment
Cons: have to pay for meals
Lot's to do. If you like cooking, and want a career this is probably the place to be.
Management is overall pretty good for the most part, the employees are very friendly and helpful.
Hardest part of the day is general prep work.

Banquet Head Houseperson (Current Employee), Lake Louise, ABMarch 10, 2015
Pros: benefits, wage, geography, learning environment, constant opportunities
Cons: very choice lifestyle, very isolated, highly transient
A beautiful hotel with some wonderful management in place. Difficulties include a highly transient work force, and some colleagues being there for the lifestyle and not the career. A great place to learn very quickly, wonderful benefits and wage. Definitely would recommend for anyone young or starting out in Hospitality. The lifestyle is very hard to sustain for a long period of time for most.

second cook at the Fairmont Banff springs hotel (Current Employee), Banff, ABOctober 6, 2014
Pros: get time off when wanted, also comes with great health benitits
Cons: don't get sundays off.
start at 5:30am -2pm are the consitannt hours.
have learned big production, to work more efficiently
and clean. learn how to teach and show others new things. to be more creative.
co-workers are great to work with and that is a key component.
hardest part of the job, is to do the same things every day, I need a little variation per day.
most enjoyable is to make the guests truly happy.

Fairmont President's Club Agent (Former Employee), Toronto, ONSeptember 16, 2014
Great training and staff

Management, especially upper levels, is very welcoming. The company was fine, but there is much work to be done on both the property and employee discipline. Managers and Directors are very hesitatant to take a shot across the bow as they pine for promotions, and that falls on the colleagues sometime.
