Pros: fridays was casual day
I have worked at a few hotels, and i can honestly say Super 8 was the best. My boss's were amazing, everyone from maintenance to the housekeepers were all really friendly people. I loved coming to work everyday. I only left because i decided to move back to Ontario, i wish i could have taken the hotel with me.
Front Desk Clerk (Current Employee), Bracebridge, ON – September 15, 2012
Pros: no pros.
Cons: min wage, terrable hours/ managment
The owners live there with there children, the little kids come out bother you well your trying to work, they yell at each other a lot. Break time is the time that your not doing laundry or desk duties. You have to ask for your work schedule although they will change it last minute threw out the week anyways and tell you that its changed they never – more... ask because their life matters they act as though you don't have one. I got yelled at once for telling them I couldn't work the Monday coming up due to a out of town doctors appointment, I was yelled at for not telling them sooner even though I'd told them four days before and they hadn't giving me a schedule to work around for making the appointment, they wouldn't give me it off and made me work until the last possible minute that I could leave to be on time assuming traffic was perfect, I was 20 minutes late to the appointment. I was told I would have every third weekend off been working there four months and haven't had any even after asking, Ive had them tell me after showing up for a shift that they decided to go to Niagara falls to marine land for the day so they tell you instead of 11pm (when i should be off) your going to have to work until two am, you cant argue this cause there is no one else there and there already gone. the other desk girl that we had they had issues with so rather then confronting her them self's they would complain to me and ask me to deal with it, they are the owners and management, I am a min wage desk clerk so this isn't my job to deal with those problems me and this girl were of equal level authority and shed worked there longer. – less

Housekeeper (Former Employee), Edmonton, AB – August 28, 2012
I liked working there because I liked the work. You know what is expected of you and you can keep busy no problem. I like that I had steady hours. The staff was nice. Hardest part would have been when there were more rooms than staff at times. Yet I still stayed and finished my work and if needed worked extra to make sure everything got done.

Housekeeper (Former Employee), Harrisburg, PA – December 15, 2014
Pros: the tips left by the guest
Cons: no healthcare benefits ava.
Typical day of work required 20-25 rooms on some days less. Learned to be a team player and often helped others get ahead. Management was very helpful and explained a lot . The co-workers there where very polite and helpful in matters if not understood correctly and I think the hardest part of the job was the hours. But I enjoyed my time there and the – more... co-workers and the guest made the day go by fast. – less
