Provided a living income, but the management was not tolerable, very unorganized and received payments late almost every time.
Room Attendant (Former Employee) – Lac La Biche, AB – 26 April 2013
A typical day at work would be finding out the rooms that need cleaning and start by stripping all the laundry, so that our sheets would be ready for when we have finished stripping all the rooms. Then after we have stripped the rooms we clean each of the rooms one by one and put them back on for vacancy. After my floor was done I would move to another floor and help them and so on. After all the rooms were clean we would meet in the laundry room and finish the laundry for the next day.
I learned how to sanitize and clean really well. Also to work with a range of ages.
There was a lack of management and lots of confusion would occur because management was not organized. Sometimes cheques were deposited later than were supposed to and did not get payed for our overtime.
Working with the co-workers at Ramada was great, it was like working with a family.
The hardest part of the job would be the large amount of labour for a small amount of people.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when there was a lot of team work and equal labour put out by the individuals. Also the teamwork made it feel like a family who was able to feel comfortable with each other and joke around.
Fun people to work with
Lots of labour for few people
