Don't waste your time here
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) –  Owen Sound, ON23 May 2018
If you enjoy working for a company that cares more about turning a profit than the safety of its employees than this is the job for you! Be prepared to have your suggestions be completely overlooked and you opinions unheard. Have fun working your butt off but never seeing an increase in your wages so that the top dogs can roll in their piles of cash. Express your concerns with the general manager and expect an unfair outcome so that the hotel can maintain its perfect image. Your experience working here is guaranteed to be much improved if you are a male.
Pros
Beautiful location on the bay
Cons
Management; unfair wages; little to no hours in the off season; long shifts with no breaks

Poor Pay

Great guests, best hotel by far in the area, but the company does not pay the employees what they deserve. Loyal long term employees do not get the pay they deserve.
Pros
free soup
Cons
minimum wage even for those who have been there longer then 10 years

Will forever miss this place
Kitchen Helper (Former Employee) –  Owen Sound, ON13 February 2018
Worked here twice. Unfortunately had to relocate back home.

Such an unreal place. Great management team. Can't thank them enough and would recommend this job to anyone.

I worked as a dishwasher, but also did some prep, made pizzas. I feel my strength was I was someone who kept morale high.

Hardest part was sometimes the hours could be long on banquet nights but generally the work load was lighter.

Most enjoyable was the people. Everyone from the Desk, Maintenance, front and back of house was unreal.

Since new management for the Kitchen, morale has never been higher, communication was more clear, days felt shorter. Generally we weren't clock watching. Time flew because as a crew we enjoyed eachothers company and fed off of eachother.

This was one of the best jobs I had and am blessed to have worked there twice.
Pros
Great Team
Cons
None.
