Butcher (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 29 July 2017
I have nothing but respect for everybody that works there and I would work at four seasons hotels and resorts again in a heartbeat. The systems are flawless and the job descriptions well thought. plus the benefits are the best I have ever sen
Generally good place to work, harsh termination policy when new technologies introduced
General Cashier/Tour Coordinator/Credit Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 24 April 2017
Hotel offers chance to work in many different capacities, most involve direct guest contact with sometimes demanding customers. Having the support and opportunity to satisfy these demands was rewarding. I learned economy trumps loyalty when my position was eliminated.
Staying at other hotels in the chain for free a huge pro for my family.
Director of Operations (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 March 2017
Great visionaries, amazing hotel teams, and interesting work! The culture is welcoming and inclusive, and feels like family. You're given the opportunity to travel the world and see places you would never imagine being able to see.
Free (subsidized) lunches, complimentary nights, discounted food and drink.
Executive Assistant to the General Manager (Former Employee) – Whistler, BC – 30 March 2017
I was fortunate to work for the Four Seasons in Whistler, British Columbia. The property is wonderful, the village is incredible, but the job itself is taxing. Overworked, and under appreciated. I would love to work for the company again, but the location was the main issue. The property loses money annually and can not staff accordingly.
Ski Concierge (Former Employee) – Whistler, BC – 15 March 2017
Working for the Four Seasons was an incredibly enjoyable and rewarding experience. It was the first company which I felt treated you as an equal. During the busy periods the higher management team from other departments would come along to help. The hardest part of that job was dealing with difficult guests. Guests with high expectations and who are paying thousands of dollars per night expect only the best service. As well as this, the company follows the Forbes standard which has allowed them to be the only 5 star resort in Canada. This standard which every staff must adhere to was also a difficult transition. Overall the Four Seasons is a very rewarding company to work for.
Bartender (Current Employee) – Toronto – 15 November 2016
By far the most corporate environment in which I have ever worked. I have enjoyed my time here, but we are currently involved in a contract dispute which has negatively affected my perception of my employer.
Assistant Director of Finance (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 November 2016
A typical day at work involved daily income report, room statistics, payroll issues, payable, receivables, food and beverage, dealing with department managers, fitness club, parking, disputes, etc.
I learned to treat people with respect the way i was treated. My co-workers are probably the best and were the most important team members.
I was a member of the executive committee, and met once a week to discuss with the most important issues dealing with personnel, finances,expenses, capital assets, renovations, budgets, room occupancy, forecasts, etc
The hardest part of the job was to ensure financial statement were provided on timely and accurate basis by the end of the month.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with great people who were hard working, loyal, trustworthy and helpful.
on-going training and tuition paid for further education
CATERING SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 November 2016
Four Seasons is a wonderful company to work for, especially for young motivated employees. Great culture, leadership and opportunity for those that work hard and want more experience for themselves. Hard work is rewarded. Keep in mind, this is a 24-7 operation with 0 days closed. It can be exhausting….you need to manage your time to achieve work life balance. The company continues to go through transitions, those that can fit in and have a willingness to travel within the organization will do well. Great opportunity for young career motivated individuals who want a good base with experience.
Excellent training and free travel, a good place to work and management.

Great place to work if you have your heart and soul in the industry. If not, you won't do well here. The demand for service excellence, and quality assurance for our guest is impeccable. You must put your all in for this company, in return though, they put their all in for you.
