Banquet Server (Former Employee), Brandon, MB – December 30, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Cons: late nights
Shifts often began at 6am or 4pm. A typical day at work included setting up tables for banquets or conferences, serving, and cleaning rooms. Management was respectful and often listened to requests for time off. The hardest part of the job was the hours- working early mornings and late nights (sometimes until 3am). The most enjoyable part was the fun work environment and free food.
Housekeeper (Former Employee), Flin Flon, MB – November 16, 2012
Pros: get to pick what time you start at
Cons: long hours
The manager was hardly ever around or available to talk too so most decisions were based on what we (the cleaners) knew about the situation. I got along good with my co-workers, they all would say I am hard working. The hardest part of the job would actually have been dealing with the managers. The most enjoyable part was freedom to make decisions and feel god about doing so.
im a hard worker, like to do my job the right way and try to enjoy it.
Housekeeper (Former Employee), Flin Flon, MB – July 26, 2012
clean rooms, lobby and bar. make sure that there is no spots of hairs on the wall or on the floor. management was good. the hardest part of the job was making sure that everything was spotless. no stains on the blankets, dust and vaccume everywhere. the most enjoyable part of the job is at break times where everyone can laugh and share on how they are doin so far.
cook/barmaid (Former Employee), Dudley, West Midlans – October 22, 2012
Pros: free bacon sarnies !
Cons: early starts in winter
I really enjoyed working at the Victoria and unfortunately had to be laid off due to lack of work for me to do. I would typically work about 2 hours a day cooking breakfasts for the bed and breakfast side of the business which was my main job but occasionally be called in to do barmaid work which I enjoyed and sometimes I had to do a bit of cleaning and preparing buffets for when they had a function. Great place to work and the manager and his dad were lovely.
