Central Reservations Agent (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 11 March 2019
Canad Corporate is where i worked. I was there a long time and enjoyed it for the first few years. Some changes in management became the downfall. It was once a happy fun office atmosphere and it then turned into a jail like atmosphere. The best thing I did was leave.
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 24 December 2018
I liked working here as a dishwasher up until I had no other choice but to put in my 2 week notice due to hours being cut that stemmed from a serious medicial issue that I had gotten from work. My boss gave me attitude when I had a dr's note saying I had to take a week off of work then another 3 days afterwards due to not healing properly.
too far from home to travel and attitude of fellow coworkers

Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Manitoba – 15 October 2018
After 2 years worth of hours you reseive benefits. Some have worked for over 2 years and still haven't accumulated enough to get benefits. Some staff members are treated badly by others. Fire Safety procedures not known to most departments. Policies being ignored due to circumstances. Most of the year struggling to find enough staff to keep things running. Sometimes denied breaks in the busiest circumstances (rarely but does happen). Equipment needed to do cleaning tasks always breaking down or in bad repair. Rooms on kids themed floor have bunk beds many have made complaints are unsafe (but to expensive to replace). speaking English isn't necessary for most workers not dealing in customer service ( which is ok until u try to tell ur manager they said something rude in their language. Then your manager will say "we can't prove they said that")
Very accepting of bilingual workers, 50% staff discount, if staffed can be great work environment
Inconsistent policy enforcment, worker to worker conflict happens here, long wait for benefits when working part-time
Great company to accelerate at whatever level one is hoping to achieve. When assigned to a certain position, higher ups rely on us to sail the ship without incident They are always hiring the younger generation allowing them to start gaining work ethic advancing them quicker into the system. Various individuals from all walks of life are welcomed and continue to advance within the ranks.
I've worked at various different canad properties, and it boils down to the location, and who you're working with.
Your manager and coworkers can make your life amazing, or you can regret coming into work everyday. Same as any other company. Some properties have high employee turn over, others the same people have been there since forever.
Corporate is sometimes stupid because they don't have knowledge of how things are run on ground level so they change things with out knowing how it would effect everything.
They brought in New management. Worst set of ppl I have ever encountered. Done their way or your fired. Even if isn't working. Rules don't apply to managers. They treat employees like they are children.
Server (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 6 April 2018
Their meal plan aren't equal for every employees, ONLY MANAGERS IN CORPORATE OFFICE CAN HAVE PRIVILEGE . You cannot order to take your food home. You can only have 50% off during working hours, which that time when you couldn't eat because it always gets busy.
Very often, cooks, and buffet servers, dishwashers are degraded.
THEY ALWAYS BRAG ABOUT THEIR "HIGHER POSITION" we got it already. There's one time a lady approached my co-worker and she literally said, "Oh is there more of this? You that I work at the coorporate office".
Waitress (Former Employee) – Portage la Prairie, MB – 11 March 2018
management for the most part was great. hours were very flexable and worked with my schedule as a student. this was in the portage la prairie location . would recommend. hardest part was dealing with people who were staying here for the flood that happens every year they can be rude people but over all great place.
Call Centre Representative (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 9 February 2018
Corporate office is a joke, management is a joke, HR is a joke. They treat their staff like garbage, have the worst turn over I've ever seen and allow management to bully and harass staff out of their jobs if they don't like you. I wouldn't recommend employment by Canad Inns to anyone
Poor management, owners who don't care or are clueless, no payoff for hard work
this job was rewarding in ways from the customers. Management didnt really care about what you were doing for them just that you were there. You could advance however you could not really make any more money
Difficult to manage work family life balance with robotic approach towards Human resources..Rules been flouted while clocking employee hours .operational Gap between Middle & top management communication.
I got hired as a room attendant that would work in laundry also. I also got told that I would work weekends SOMETIMES. That ended up not being the case. The manager that hired me was only there 2 times out if the week and did not care about anybody other than the 2 people that were there more than 5 years. I got taken off my evening shift because I was more needed in the rooms. Then they stopped putting me in laundry at all because 2 women were complaining that they weren't getting any hours. Essentially I worked as a room attendant, laundry attendant, and house person. They never had enough people to let people have weekends off, plus putting only one person in laundry while the hotel was busy and penalizing people for not being able to keep up with laundry. The straw that broke the camel's back was a new manager coming in and treating me differently than everybody else. I got stared at, followed around, and even though I was nice to her she never once was nice to me back. After I got a second job I was refused to start my new job, so I left.
Don't work here!!!!!!!! Especially for housekeeping. They push you to work your hardest and more for minimum wage!!!!
