Absolutely Terrible.
Maintenance (Former Employee), Calgary, AlbertaApril 27, 2014
Pros: cheap accomodation
Cons: everything
As a former employee of the fairmont Palliser hotel, I can tell you not to waste your time applying for this company.

All the departments are terrible. In my department, my manager never conducted evaluations of staff performance... and said daily that our performance was excellent. When I went to transfer to another property my manager insisted he would give me a positive reference... then (after transferring; and behind my back) told my new (potential) employers I was terrible (against the law).

It is a unionized environment. There is A LOT of unethical work practices going on here. There is also unsafe work being performed. No safety meetings. EVER.

Terrible managers, No training. Dead end job at its finest.

The company lies to your face. They allow workers who have been there for 30 plus years to use foul language and disrespect you.. only because such employees are so deep in their union seniority that it is impossible to terminate that employee.

they use foreign workers to complete work in the palliser and manipulate workers by threatening to send them back to their home countries if they do not co operate completely.

What about workers out east IN CANADA who are desperate for work?

I'm glad I quit. It is was a waste of time working there.

I'm sure you'll have the same experience.

Dishonest managers.
Unethical company.
No advancement.
Authority figures stealing your personal possessions without being disciplined.

awful experience.

Environnement de travail
Gardienne d'enfants (Current Employee), Montebello, QCJune 20, 2014
L'environnement de travail est parfait. J'aime les enfants mais je ne peux développer une carrière dans ce domaine. Mais je le fais pour m'amuser.
