I worked here at the Barrie location in 2015 in addition to this summer season . I have 7 years cleaning experience including hotel, and am definately worth more than minimum wage. I have never worked somewhere with staff or management like this. Management sits in their office and talks badly about staff , staff / employees steal from co-workers, it can be a very catty and malicious environment all around. Management does not appreciate the cleaning ( or front desk staff ) whatsoever. This season I called MOL on them because they have been stealing all of our tips, and when questioned they said it was a new " Policy". The majority of staff are foreign exchange students comming from a contracted company - no experience and horrible workers.
Management will also have timmies days where they bring doughnuts and coffee and only keep in front office for themselves/ front desk staff . Of a guest leaves something for housekeeping , it is pocketed by the team lead or we aren't even notified.
Comming back to this job as I am transitioning into starting my own business, it has made me 100% more motivated to never work for a company like this again.
On the bright side- I was able to pay my bills. Had I been able to keep my tips , who knows what extra incentive I would have to stay and continue to pick up the slack.
Will never apply here again.
Great job for first time students , management is relaxed with missed days and work like balance if you have outside commitments like school. Had 3 paid sick days as well which I am grateful for.
Work like balance was flexible with hours
Low pay / theft / unappreciated by management
