Great people to work with
Room Attendant (Former Employee), Niagara Falls, ONMarch 26, 2015
Very unorganised place of work, did enjoy all my coworkers. Very repetitive which I enjoyed because allowed me to create a routine to work with on a daily basis. Assigned 15 rooms per day to clean, always finished early due to being quick and efficient.

I was promoted to Housekeeping Manager, which is the only good thing I got from it.
Housekeeping Manager (Former Employee), Victoria BCFebruary 10, 2015
Cons: long hours, no pay for stat holidays as a housekeeping manager.
Working at the Sheraton was okay for the first two years. New Management took over and it went down hill. The hardest part of my job was dealing with the GM. He liked to make people cry. The people I worked with were great and so was the hotel itself. It was very enjoyable to be able to learn how to manage a department. I enjoyed that part of my job. If you could get over the over bearing boss, you probably could last a long time there. But I cannot handle mind games.

Waitress/Bartender (Current Employee), Cambridge, ONAugust 4, 2014
Pros: people/co-working/environment/
Cons: schedule
Working at Four Points by Sheraton restaurant gives me two types of working hours, either morning or afternoon shifts. A typical morning shift at work would be arriving there around 5:40 am preparing everything for breakfast. Once the restaurant is open and customers walk in, I would approach them and explain what we serve for breakfast since it's usually a buffet. Usually I would finish up with my morning shift around 12:00 PM. After everything is closed, I would have to check up for item that we would need write them down for my Manager to order them in. I follow up with my Food and Beverages Manager and he follows up with the General Manager. What I've learned working here is that every individual is different and that your not always right. Learned how to cope with people, and how to treat them. Everyone is different in their own way so I've learned how to deal with different personalities. I work with co-workers when the hotel is over 60-70% sold or if there is a special activity going on like a meeting in the banquet hall for example. All the co-workers I work with are amazing, I can depend on them for anything. The hardest part of the job is that we receive our schedules every Friday evening. It's hard to make any type of plans since you never know when your scheduled to work. It's hard for the Manager to know if were going to be busy or not. But I really enjoy coming to work because everyday is different for me. There are different customers everyday, but then there are customer that stay with us at the hotel for months. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know people that come around the world, learning about their cultures and being able to talk to them and having fun while still working.

Hotel housekeeping, Laundry and front desk were so much fun and hard work too.
Housekeeping supervisor (Former Employee), Fredericton, NBJune 15, 2014
Pros: daily hours of 9-4, good atmosphere, generous and hard working staff
Cons: party clean up, cut hours.
I trained people and worked beside them to get 16 rooms ready by noon.
The laundry needed folding and carts filled in the afternoon and I love to fold clean laundry.
My day might include emergency fill in at the front desk to take calls and check guests in.

The hardest job was cleaning after a party weekend of Hockey teams or other festive weekend get together. The rooms were a mess.

The most enjoyable was the laughter and the fun. I was so proud of my accomplishments as well.
Disappointment came when the management had to cut hours and so I left to make room for others who needed the job more than I.

Sales Operation Manager (Current Employee), CalgaryMay 24, 2014
I strongly believe in TEAM work and effort. I always promote a crystal clear flow of communication which makes everyone individual/associates life and job a lot easier and at the end leave a positive impact on the minds of our clients for how organized and seamless is the entire operation.
Work place harmony is the core to success, and at the end of the day how satisfied is my first line of defense(My sales reps) is matters to me the most. As they are the ones who are the face to the brand.

Thank you

Accounts Receivables (Current Employee), Dorval, QuebecMay 4, 2014
gather all the billing information, work with Controller and revenue auditor. Great atmosphere, co-workers have a great sense of humor.
Hardest part would be making sure nothing is missing on a daily basis and the most enjoyable part is when the clients pay in a timely manner due to correct billing and timely billing being put out.
