Room Service Server (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB23 August 2017
Enjoyed my 3 years working with this company. Kind managers, reliable co-workers who are eager to take a chance on people and give them training. You never know what will come through that door.
Pros
$3/day off your cheque and basically eat whatever you want off the menu!
Cons
Never know what will come through the doors.

Night Auditor (Former Employee) –  Hinton, AB20 August 2017
Little issue with the management but overall, the company is great. All staffs are great. My manager at front desk is very open with request offs. Little issues with the manager but that is normal at a workplace.

Great interaction with clientelle
Night Auditor & Front Desk Agent (Current Employee) –  Windsor, ON19 August 2017
you learn a great deal on the term "customer service" and what that entails. You learn to adapt to situations that happen instantly with guests' (good/bad). You also get well at problem solving on your feet, and learn how to react in emergency situations where you are the safety net for the hotel.

Working with the other staff is always great, but it can be difficult as well. With a 24/hr business and a lot of shift changes, communication can get lost. That is always an ongoing process.
Pros
Discounts on other location
Cons
long hours

Customer Service/ Front Desk (Current Employee) –  Nisku, AB19 August 2017
The people are very nice to work with. Holiday inn doesn't seem to hire very many people at at time, which causes some individuals to be over worked and stressed. The job itself is very busy and mentally demanding, very fasted paced.

Houseman/maintenance (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB4 August 2017
Happy to be one of the employee. Coworkers are great! The most hardest part of the job is cleaning non stop when its busy and the most enjoyable is the fact that you yourself manage your own time.

Needs some improvement
Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB21 July 2017
Maintenance manager needs more people skills. He has no desire to listen to explanations or to answer questions regarding some aspects of the work needing to be done in building. Always berates staff loudly in front of other staff members. Does not keep word about pay raise after trial period. Has no wish or desire to accept other ideas for other ways to do some jobs in maintenance areas. Is always suspicious of staff members in his department.
Pros
lots of work
Cons
poor people skills with employees in maintenance shop with maintenance manager.
