Hampton is a good and friendly workplace. All employees are treated like family.
Room Attendant & Supervisor (Current Employee) – Airdrie, AB – 6 April 2017
The Hampton allowed me to learn different skills, such as working with their computer program to update room status and balance many responsibilities at once. All employee's there are friendly and we treat each other like family. The employee's from all departments work well together in order for the hotel to run properly.
A stressful environment with an inappropriate management team
Front Office Manager (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 7 February 2014
A typical day will include being berated and penalized for situations out of your control. It is expected you not only do your job but other jobs as well as they do not want to hire the necessary staff to function well. It should be expected for staff to be underpaid for the work that they do, for your schedule to be posted weekly at the last moment so you cannot make any plans outside of work, as well as be a part of a team who are exhausted and angry as a result of working under a tyrant family.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 December 2013
my typical day at work was coming in and get your cart to start cleaning the rooms that was assigned. If the carts were not stocked you had to restock them yourself with shampoos, conditioners, body was, body soap, towels etc and all the necessities that a room is required to have. I also had to vacuum, change sheets and just basically do what a housekeeper does to make sure the room is nice and tidy for the customers. Management was not so good, everyone was always fighting about something when i was working. My co-workers were individually great sweet people but like to talk behind peoples back to much, but thats life and thats jus what happens sometimes, you have to roll with the punches to get a pay check. Most enjoyable part of working i would have to say is learning the knowledge of becoming a better cleaner and more experienced so you can progressively work faster and be more accurate to details. It could also let you keep your job and let you get paid better. I also liked the work out and knowing that i did a days hard work.
learned customer service
people talking about things that should not be in the work environment
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 2 April 2013
Cleaning anywheres from 12 to 14 rooms a day. How other people live at home. Management was really good. Co-worker were nice, easy to get a long with most. Hardest part of the job was to make sure that nothing was forgotten. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I was keeping busy throughout the day.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, Manitoba – 3 October 2012
A typical day working at Hampton Inn was hard and phyically demanding. We changed the linens, towels, soap, coffee, tea, cups and everything that needed to be changed or to be replaced with clean and washed material. What I learned from working with Hampton Inn hotel was, it takes 15 minutes(20 minutes max.)to clean one room with 2 beds. Also, I learned how to clean the dining area and the stairs area of a hotel. The management was okay, would of been better if the manager hired two people per room and not one. For this reason, I lost 5 pounds within one and a half weeks working there. What if a pregnant woman was working there? Now you can paint the picture. But, the co workers were really friendly and helpful when you needed it. Overall, I enjoyed cleaning the rooms, helping guests with anything they needed and also cleaning.
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 19 September 2012
Great start off job in the travel and tourism industry. Management needs to improve their work. Lunch breaks and bathroom break are impossible to get, no teamwork no team lead, no encourgement a lot of he said she said, no trust.
