Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 April 2018
Every job has it's perks but this job was stressful. This location is behind on laundry and not enough supplies. Time limits on room isn't enough. Not to mention the rooms that floods and while cleaning rooms, it was always hot. No wonder why guests give this hotel a bad rating.
Linen runner/Houseman (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 3 April 2018
Worked there for about a year, management staff were great people but weren't given enough power to keep poor employees from not doing their jobs, my supervisor was the nicest person and helped me out a lot, and my manager was an incredibly reliable individual who was always willing to fix your schedule.
My schedule was as solid as a rock, only having to work an extra day if it fell on a holiday, and only then if I chose to work to get time and a half.
Unfortunately the owners decided to close the laundry division which increased my workload and a few of my co-workers weren't the greatest or most reliable people. I ended up leaving feeling somewhat bitter, but I'm glad for the experience.
Your schedule is very solid, but flexible if you need a day off
Not the friendliest people to work with, other than the managers/supervisors.
Housekeeper & Maintenance (Former Employee) – Charlottetown, PE – 22 March 2018
A typical day at work at the Best Western would involve arriving every morning at 7 o'clock and we were assigned 11-15 rooms to have cleaned properly to have ready for the guests. I learned proper folding techniques and how to work meticulously doing so. The hardest part and the most enjoyable went hand in hand and that was the labor. Bending down, lifting heavy things. I loved this part of the job because I would go home and feel as thought I did a very good job, not to mention slept like a baby.

Loved it. Really had lots of smiles and laughs. Hours were good. No complaints. Very clean environment. It was always busy there you barely had a day off but it was beneficial that way if you like shifts like that. All in all I work there again.

Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Great Falls, MT – 12 February 2018
Not a very supportive workplace. Nice guests and friendly staff. Front Desk manager was good to work for and with. HR management was disappointingly not supportive of staff. Hardest part of the job was working when events were going on. Also didn't get the feeling the staff mattered very much to management. Happy staff=happier guests.
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 31 January 2018
At Best Western Primrose Hotel which was sold in May 2015 and is no longer a Hotel. Reconciling cash, cheques, credit cards against Night Audit reports. Doing daily deposit slips and arranging for Armoured Car pick up. Handling petty cash. Responding to credit card disputes in writing. Credit Card disputes can be challenging and figuring out why things are out of balance when it happens. Management was fair.
An exciting and fun workplace with great staff and guests.
PORTER (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 31 January 2018
A typical day at work was fun and enjoyable with the company of great co-workers. Never a dull moment. The day consists of assisting guest services with the guests needs and assuring a great stay. Also, many banquet functions and conference meetings must be prepared, the Porters are responsible for the set up, maintenance and overall care of such events. We are responsible for the clean up after an event to prepare and set up the next one. We have many other responsibilities as well, Porters generally do a little bit of everything in the Hotel from maintenance/technical duties to customer service and hospitality duties. In the end, a great place to work.
