Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Beirut – 25 September 2013
worked with Holiday inn as front office supervisor then a sales executive, developed my career and personality, connections and how to deal with clients from all over the world,management was very close to us, had many trainings, respect all colleagues, the challenge was the most enjoyable part of my job at holiday inn
Workplace and culture was great. We treat each other as a family. The hardest part was, because I am the only person as maintenance, I have to do it all as much as possible as I can. I sometimes work even during my rest day specially those times of Snow and it's cold and the heater is not working and or other stuff that needs fixing.
I enjoyed most of my working experience with Holiday Inn Suites. I was able to manage not just my time and expertise but I was able to work with other nationality and climate.
I learned and passed Pool and Spa operator, I also had a certificate as preventive maintenance and it's all because the company allowed and make sure that we maintain standards in the hotel.

Great stepping stone within career path. I didn't enjoy as much as other jobs however I learned many different attributes in regards to working life. Customer Service, courteous awareness, computer skills, and much more! I learned so much in so little time its unbelievable, I would recommend to anybody anyday!

HouseKeeping/Breakfast Bar (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 27 October 2016
You come in work hard and seem to never do enough. Always micro managed. cut your hours horribly and do the schedule without using their brains so you have even less help throughout the day. never order the right amount of what you need General Manager talks to you like your stupid your opinions dont matter at all they just kinda do what they want and ignore logic all day
Banquet Server (Current Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 26 October 2016
Co-workers are very hard and kind workers but the management is lacking in that aspect. Management is slow and unorganized leaving staff to improvise to make the best out of situations.Working is fun and enjoyable as you get to connect with new people but it is stressful when you are put in a position that disappoints the guests. The hours are not consistent or guaranteed so you can end up with weeks where you work everyday or weeks where you do not work at all.
Staff meal after working 5 hours
not being told when shifts end, not having gaurenteed shifts per week
House Keeping (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 25 October 2016
I thought house keeping job as a burden when i joined in this company. when I completed my complete training period I felt it as a normal job. Again I couldn't adjust with my allocations. When I made my mind to face all difficulties, I found this job as interesting. I learned that do not think any job is difficult before you try to do by our self.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Leduc, AB – 29 October 2016
consistently over hire staff and make it very hard for the employees who have been there a while . their scheduling is an absolute mess they never have enough girls when needed but always seem to have way too many girls when they dont need them . ending most of the girls in 3.5 to 5 hour a day shifts which honestly does not add up very well on pay day . not to mention they have you sign a "no gossiping " policy but its entirely voided by even the head staff i witnessed the supervisors on multiple occasions say things about other staff to other staff. so over all this place is by far the worst place to work they do alot of two facing but they treat you like garbage make you work your butt off with no benefits or nothing .
Worked there 5 years ago when establishment was under different management
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC – 5 November 2016
Had great experience working for this hotel! Such an enriching experience! Staff and customers were amazing! Only downfall was management. I will refrain all other comments. But I would anyday, return there with a new management staff.

Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Brockville, ON – 29 November 2016
this was not a great workplace to work in, management almost was never there to help and always left you by yourself with little to no training on the subject. its really hard to get ahead and have a good day a work in this place.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 30 August 2016
I enjoyed working at Holiday Inn. The management was great and the working atmosphere was incredible. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Very interactive work place, mostly friendly staff, benefits were great, independent type of work, long shifts. The management & staff always made each day great for both the guests and the employees! Most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the different guests & building relationships with the regulars.
Line Cook (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 12 January 2017
opportunity to be creative in regards to specials, management works with you and listens and makes you part of the process work as team it can get slow so sometimes you have to go looking for something to do.
Worst company i have ever worked for. The Company does not respect the employee contracts, and the union only cares for the union. You're on your own.
Bartender (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 18 August 2016
Not a Company to grow with. I started with the Company in 2011, with a signed contract for a full time Bartender position. Over the four years of employment the union and Management used loopholes to take my full time shifts and give them to under qualified persons, while leaving me with one or two breakfast serving shifts, by the end the Union told me to get another job...so I did. The company told me if I did not work the breakfast shifts I would be fired. Having another bartender job, breakfast was impossible for me to do, so they let me go and said that I quit. WORST COMPANY AND MANAGEMENT EVER!
too many supervisors, not knowing what each r doing
Server/Hostess (Former Employee) – Westbank, BC – 27 December 2016

Front Desk Supervisor (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 October 2016
I like working for Holiday Inn Express but I am not allowed to sit at all.I work 7-3 with no break at all.We are not allowed to sit.We have already had a front desk clerk go on WCB because we can not sit at all.I understand standing when a guest comes in but should be able to sit on downtime.
very productive and I enjoyed my responsibilities.
Housekeeping supervisor (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 6 September 2016
