Porter (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 13 September 2016
A typical day at work is helping hotel guests with their luggage. I learned different cultural diversities and management cares for their employees. My co-workers make sure that everybody is having fun at work. The hardest part of work is when there's a banquet where every body gets drunk and we need to keep some guests quiet.The most enjoyable part of the job is when I;m touring guests around the city.

Toxic Work Environment with Many Issues with Management
Front Desk Clerk (Current Employee) – Greater Sudbury, ON – 19 March 2017
In my experience at the Radisson Hotel Sudbury Location, I have found that there is poor communication and training between management and staff as well as ever changing policies that are impossible to keep up with. The management (specifically the GM) that has been running the hotel for the past few years has been known to discriminate against and put down his staff and staff are often denied their legal rights as employees (breaks, etc) and NO part time staff are guaranteed a minimum amount of hours. Perks of this job is that it includes a few taxable benefits with the union contract such as a staff meal every shift of at least 6 hours.
Banquet Server (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 January 2017
The company and the staffs are doing great in their work. When I got hired in this hotel they provided me everything that I have to know about the company including training and seminars before they put me on the floor. The bosses are easy to talk to.

Server and Bartender (Former Employee) – Red deer, albera – 5 October 2016
I enjoyed the job and had great customers/ guests. Working there was sometimes stressful when it really shouldn't be. When I started I had 3 interviews which is the most I've ever had even in way better jobs, so I was expecting great things. However it seemed to be a little bit divided with new changes for improvement, which is great but it was very disorganized. Enforcing new rules on new staff by security, almost like being bullied ( which should be addressed by management) and letting old staff get away with anything. While I started 2 longer term staff quit with no notice and the rest of staff seemed close to having enough or looking for new work. Servers in restaurant and lounge had to use own floats, which was never mentioned about the job in 3 interviews. Although kitchen staff were nice, what was ordered by guests did not always come out in the meal, added or missing ingredients which sacrificed your tips. Yet you still had to tip out to kitchen. Poor communication with higher up staff assuming new staff know everything, events, wedding tastings, ect. Again making a easy job hard and stressful. Eventually this could be a great place to work but they need to figure it out and get everyone on board.
Most staff were enjoyable to work with and help out in anyway, customers and guests were very nice even when they could see the struggle
Older security staff trying to be your manager which is nothing to do with their job, poor comunication, unorganized managment

Night Auditor (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 21 March 2016
i loved my coworkers. they were great but with in 3 months of me being there i still didn't have a uniform. and in that time 4 people quit. while i was there 3 were looking for other jobs so they could quit. half the night audit paper work is pointless, but they require you to do it and then give different papers to 12 different people. you're required to show up at lunches and dinners for staff, despite the fact that you were night shift so you need to sleep during the day, and the fact that you do have a life outside of your job. I went to a job that pays less just to get away and be happier. i'm happier making less money half way across the city than i was working 2 blocks from my house and making more money.
Its a shame, it couldve been a great job. i was so excited when i started there. it went downhill fast.
Part-time Front Desk Manager On Duty (Former Employee) – Kitchener – 17 April 2015
This hotel was a great place to work while I was in school. The staff and atmosphere were very inviting. They recently renovated the surface aspects of the main lobby and hallways to improve guest experiences. Management was helpful and friendly to deal with in both cases of emergencies and problem situations.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 November 2014
one day I went little late for work, everybody had packed their cart and ready to start clean while I have to find all the stuffs for my cart. there were no enough cleaning towers for exchange. during that day, I keep going down to the laundry room get some new towers and other supplies. it slowed down my work speed and made me so hard for the whole day. I learned it is important to have the good relationship with co-worker in this case, because we can share the supplies with each other. the hardest part of this job is when you get most of the room are very messy to clean. the enjoyable part of the job is very personable working environment.
