Pros: learning experience
A great place to work. 4 restaurants, 4 bars, 350 bedrooms and 300 staff. It was like one big family. I enjoyed going to work, Not only was I being trained in Hotel Management, but it kept me from partying too much at weekends with my college friends. I worked in pretty much all departments, even laundry, where I carried out a time and motion study. I could get a phone call at 5pm to cover a shift at 6pm but I enjoyed that; plus the on call pay was higher than regular pay. I learned how to deal with staff and customers as well as how to work under extreme pressure. The most difficult part of the job was working in the kitchens as, apart from the production kitchen, they were all too small and extremely busy.The most enjoyable part of the job was parading around the Hotel in either a morning suit or a Tux when doing duty management.
