Pros: booking work shifts freely, choose when to work, does not requires much experience, setting my own schedules, flexible schedule of work, very appealing during special events, can work on interesting events such as concerts and boxing matches and christmas
Cons: very demanding on stamina, heavy lifting, long hours standing, lacking use of technical skills, physical and labour work than intellectual, no skill requirements, lacking professional work environment
A shifting and dynamic workplace that changes depending on the season, events and holidays. Every work day is different other than the events that takes place through few consecutive days.
The usual shift may be long or short depending on the amount of stress and work that must be done, ranging from usual days of calm portering to a long, busy day of providing service.
In my personal opinion, workers are casual somewhat tend to not demonstrate any professional skills, however the Shaw Conference not requiring skills and experience to work, which should not be taken into considerations. Works are however coordinated and diverse and can sometimes be pleasant to work with.
The workplace requires strength and much stamina and proves to be tiring and overly demanding on work days that are busy and long.
Many Shaw supervisors of banquets lack sophistication and civilized standards towards to workers, contrast to captains of the banquets department who are better mannered and level-headed.
The management lacks consideration for workers sometimes to charging workers for meals as not regarding amount of foods wasted after big events is ridiculous, but compensates with showing appreciation to the workers an being a flexible and friendly workplace and hosting special events for workers certainly makes up for any short in management.
The workplace allows flexible booking of work schedules and having freedom to a vacation break as long as there are no pending work shifts currently booked.
