Games Attendant, Key Holder, Assistant Manager (Former Employee), outback,New south Wales AustraliaNovember 25, 2014
Pros: the scenery and experience
Cons: my boss becoming ill
The Royal hotel was situated in the bush in Australia.The village had a population of only 50 people was was the only pub for hours so we were always busy due to harvest and people living in the surrounding areas.There was only two of us working in the pub.Unfortunately my boss became very ill unexpectedly so i had to take over the running of the pub.I – more... searched on gum three and found a backpacker who joined me.It was hard work and long hours but we enjoyed every minute. I had to order the stock and pay the bills.We shared the work and took turns serving the bar, cooking in the kitchen,and maintaining the upkeep of the rooms.When my boss was discharged from hospital he told me that the customers had been telling him of the great work we were doing and he decided to give me a raise.It was an experience i will never forget. – less

Restaurant experience
General Manager (Current Employee), Durban, ZNJuly 17, 2014
Pros: learned a lot
Cons: long hours
The lodge had only a small aount of rooms. I was handling more the restaurant side and Le domaine is a residential area. We have done events like happy hour every Sat and was very busy. Also we had movie nights and weddings. We were a young crowd who achieved a nice outcome from the residense. We also got to cater for the old age home that was challenging – more... at times. The hardest part was the long hours of work and no sleep. I enjoyed the residence and listening the the old folks. – less

A sad place to work
Head Chef/Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Ullswater the lakesJuly 8, 2014
Pros: live in and free food
Cons: remort location, every long hours
from breakfast to the end of dinner service working most of the time and when busy having to serve food and even work the bar.
Since been there I have learned that you need staff but good balance of staff that know their jobs and can work together when the pressure is on. Sadly we don't have that today and that makes the job hard, The best part of the – more... job is days off – less

On Call All Departments (Former Employee), Nottingham, ENGJuly 4, 2014
Pros: learning experience
Cons: stressful
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. – more... 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. – less

Chef (Former Employee), South Grafton, NSWMarch 3, 2014
Pros: good work life balance.
Cons: comfortable job, i need a bigger challenge.
Great bosses, happy work environment, fellow staff all pleasant, close to home and kids schooling. The menu is nice whilst simple ( steak/schnitzel ,daily special ) but provides little challenge for a Chef with over 25yrs experience. Hours are smallish for a chef, 30/40hrs, i am comfortable with 45/55hrs or more per week.
