Housekeeping Attendant and Laundry Attendant (Former Employee) – London, ON – 26 May 2017
My typical day at the Hilton Hotel.
I would strip the beds and make the beds, I would also take out all the garbage from the room and strip all the dirty laundry from the rooms. I would disinfect the bathroom and kitchen. I would wash the dishes and put them back in the cupboard. I would vacuum the room and dust every surface of the room.
Free food during your shift and paid sick days..
Paying for my own parking which got very expensive, .
Excellent company to work with. They care about the little people
Executive Chef (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 3 January 2017
As a former Executive Chef of the Hilton, I must say it was one of the most enjoyable postings I have ever held. The management and staff were a solid team. Proper training and courses were provided in a timely fashion, without disrupting service to our clients. The support for the staff was very strong, giving credence to the high moral of the management and staff. The longevity of staff employment made it evident as to how well this particular team was treated and how much they enjoyed coming to work each day.
Housekeeping Supervisor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 October 2016
I love working at the Hilton Toronto. The management takes good care of you provided you work hard and are willing to learn. I learn about the day to day functions of the Housekeeping department and working on my computer skills at the same time with using software's such as synergy and ONQ My colleagues have a very positive attitude towards their job making it easy for an intern like me to gel in easily and learn fast. And they all create a very productive stress free environment to work within.
Free Lunches, Good Management, Potential for growth
Operations Assistant (Former Employee) – Hilton – 16 October 2016
I learnt scheduling, reporting and good leadership. The day started at 8:30 with brief meeting about everyday's agenda. I learnt how to keep people together despite of the differences in their opinion.

Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 30 August 2016
The hardest part of job is each room is different when coming to cleaning .... 1 room can take 15 minutes to do but depending on who checked in it could take up to an hour .... I think in this matter there should be incentives for employees to do it .... they need to appreciate their employees more and have benefits
Receiptionist (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 24 August 2016
- Completely daily tasks, update staff email, check-in and check-out guests accordingly, and answer general hotel inquiries accurately, meet brand standards.
- I learned how to professionally communicate via telephone, email, in-person, etc. I also learned how to manage myself and the departments according to hotel efficiency and guest needs. I grew familiar to computer programs including: OnQ, Outlook, Gmail, Microsoft Office. As per customer service; I learned how to settle invoices, transfer calls/ take messages, take payment and count tills.
- Management: Prompt for me to start work, training was disorganized but I did master all brand standards and duties, forward about mistakes to future prevention, worked as a team for events. I look at the management as "bosses" instead of "leaders". Instead of correcting me, they'd do it themselves without explanation. Simple language such as " I " vs. "we".
- Hardest part about that job: Disorganized training = mistakes that were learned from and never repeated, long hours without tasks (constantly keeping self busy), schedule for every week distributed very short notice.
- Enjoyable part about that job: different departments had diverse employees, professional environment but genuinely friendly at that. Consistent shifts and biweekly pay.
House keeping (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 22 June 2016
I really do enjoy the job I just do not like the idea of our over time hours being banked, as well as the face that our Christmas bonus was not a bonus but a $50 advance on our paycheck that was not authorized. on the other hand I really did enjoy cleaning the hotel rooms and interacting with the guests and seeing them smile
