Good start out job but is not meant to be a permanent career
Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 7 June 2017
Overall it was a good place to work if you like being a bit sheltered away from interactions with others. I, personally, would much rather prefer to be around more people and to be able to socialize. Very supportive people, flexible hours and a great team to work with.

Great environment to work, if you like working on your own and occasionally assisting other teammates this is a great job. You are assigned your own set of rooms and given two breaks in between cleanings to rest a bit. It's an easy job, but requires a lot of movement. Most enjoyable part of the job was when you were rotated you normally got to clean the lobby and assist with rooms which was a nice break from regular room cleanings. Hardest part of the job is stripping the beds and making them.
sandman hotel was very good and i have good experince from it.

Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 November 2016
On a typical day I do my work with a good attitude as much as I can and strive to do the best job I can and work quickly to get done in the time I'm given. The hours range from 3 hours to 8 hours a day depending on how busy. It is a good place to work and I get along with almost all my co-workers. The hardest part of my job is pleasing my supervisor and climbing the stairs in the morning to stock my cart. The best part is when I'm done for the day and I see that I didn't have to go back and fix a mistake and I finished on time.
Banquet Captain/ Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 September 2015
The best part about this job was interacting with the hotel guests that come and go. I also learnt a great amount of customer service and why it is important to go above and beyond for a guest/client. After working at the front desk for a while, I moved onto working in the banquet rooms. Banquets were stressful at times trying to please the clients, but it wasn't stressful everyday.
Working with Sandman company was a great experience. -Banquet halls -Cleanup work place -Vacuum -Mop -Clean dishes -Organize cutlery -Set up halls as requested -Take down halls as requested -Clean washrooms
Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Revelstoke, BC – 13 July 2013
Work is work at the sandman hotel, it has given me a basic knowledge of housekeeping skills. The management at the Sandman Hotel is nice enough, the co-workers are all really nice and try to make you feel as welcome as possible. The hardest part of working for the Sandman is time management and the most enjoyable part of the job is the flexible hours the job allows.
Guest Service Representative (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 17 May 2013
It's a great place to work because of the people you work with. The staff at the hotel have a great attitude, and welcome you in as if you are family. It's a busy hotel, that constantly keeps you on your toes with guest issues etc, which if out of our control makes it very hard to work sometimes.
