Service Manager (Former Employee) – Glendeer Auto mall – 15 March 2016
I loved working with the staff here. Great atmosphere and cohesion between departments. The product has a great warranty and it was very easy to work with the manufacturer directly to help customers in a fair way.
Employee (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 October 2015
And lately famine. Although your coworkers and managers are usually excellent. A very team oriented dynamic. Salary is reasonable, work is not always available. The benefits are good. Sick days, medical and RRSP contributions by employer and many more perks.
Had a good atmosphere until Auto Canada bought it.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 July 2015
A typical day was spent trying to sell cars. work the phones and learn the brand and competitors. unfortunately the economy right now has caused this workplace to become quite strict and unforgiving. The bosses were great but Auto Canada supports the typical Sales motivation of the first one to the customer makes the sale. The bosses were quite understanding and pushed for success.
Great crew that sticks together
Corporate feel diminishes success rate of sales staff.
Convention Services (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 May 2015
A lot of room to advance except it takes a long time to acquire such. Needs a better scheduling system as everything is scheduled in seniority which is kind of horrible. You won't get any hours (hardly) if you're at the bottom of the hires.
Barista (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 17 January 2015
The people are the best part of my job. The benefits are great, and the customers are great too. Some of the cons include having to deal with theft a lot (as there are a lot of homeless people in the area who try to steal your merchandise and your tips), and the repetitiveness.
good situation customer service representative absolutly in high ranking ability
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 10 January 2015
Ability and performance works in duties has been proven. Increased knowledge of serving customers. Dealing with people work together as a team. Dealing co-workers as a team. Some are slow times working hours. Is to promote satisfaction of customers.
Good high salary obtain.
Making some false move give you hindrance of duty.
Banquet Server (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 January 2015
I have worked in many hotels asa banquet server and even tough this was the second highest paying one I could not stay there for very long.
The pros: *Amazing free food in the cafeteria *Great benefits *Free stays and discounted prices at other Hyatt properties around the world
The Cons: *They follow everything by the book- For example: You get a certain amount of sick days for the year. I ended up using all of mine at once because I was in the hospital. I had unexpected surgery. I called in to work with sufficient notice and brought a letter. I was remediated on paper for going over my sick days. I had not called in sick the rest of the year. Another example: All food and beverage needs to be in the rooms 15 minutes before the scheduled time on the contract. I was in the elevator putting cookies in a room when the elevator broke. I radioed the manager and told them they had to get someone else to bring cookies to the room because i was stuck in the service elevator. I was written up for not having cookies in the room on time even though when i radioed the manager it was still 25 minutes before the scheduled time. *Everyone on the management team treats you like you are a number and you do not matter. They are taught to intentionally have that distinctive separation between server and manager. *I have seen other staff disappear and go to the mall for 5 hours during a shift and the management team does not notice because they are in the office the entire time. *No room for advancement. It was made clear that they like to hire from the outside and not promotemore... from within.
Overall, I would not recommend this employer to anyone looking for a banquet job. I have literally worked for banquet positions that pay me half of what i was getting paid at the hyatt and i was happier.less
security officer (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – 14 October 2014
I worked for hrlb for about 6 years... It is a company you can grow with if you know the right people and suck up, there are definitely favorites. I was lucky to be in a dept where the boss had our best interest in mind. Always worked his best to accommodate our schedules. Weekends were busy so hard to get those off though. Best part was comp rooms across the globe, wonderful perk!! Pay was pretty poor if you were a line employee, minimum raises were standard.
comp rooms!! free lunch. really great people i worked with
worked weekends almost always, pay was low in certain depts, understaffed, some mngt clueless and disconnected from line staff
Room attendant (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 8 September 2014
Though this job has an excellent starter pay, with benefits coming in after 3 months, its tough being a new employee here. I have so far gotten just graveyard shifts due to seniority. There are too many people working here for there to be enough hours during the day, or even after September. You will need a part time job on the side, even if they promise you "regular work".
