Night Cleaner in Field, BC
Bad plumbing, toilets always backed up. U share ur living space w mice, squirrels etc. Staff caf food left a lot to be desired. Gd luck if ur a vegan.
Would not recommend for long-term advancement, upper management lacks knowledge of staff dynamics and needs
Fantastic co-workers and beautiful locations, but unfortunately upper management does not invest in long-term employees (likely they have become too accustomed to high-turnover). This leaves staff and managers that lack experience, feel stressed out, or overworked. I would only recommend working for this company if you are coming in with a short-term mindset.
It's very unfortunate because this place has so much potential, and I think a lot of people care about its integrity starting off..but quickly change their minds. The longer you work here the more disposable you will feel.
Food and Beverage Server in Field, BC
Not worth your time
One of the most toxic places I've ever worked at.
Staff accommodation is disgusting unless you're in maintenance or management/supervisor position then you get a cabin, if you're the regular staff you all live in one building and share a tiny bedroom. The shower curtains are never cleaned and the women's washroom has a hole in the ceiling that leaks water.
Staff meals are indelible 99% of the time since the "cooks" are mostly high while preparing it if you're vegan or vegetarian good luck. Food is either undercooked or overcooked no in between. I hope you enjoy paying over $100 a month to eat toast and instant noodles.
The only pro to staff accommodations is the gym.
Not only do they promote incompetence they reward bad behaviour (not showing up to work, calling in, or being late)
I witness numerous people get promoted who should have gotten fired and watch them not promote or demote staff who definitely deserved to get promoted.
They resign contracts of people who should have gotten fired and ignore things like (fights, bad work behaviour, stealing or male workers harassing females)
Since it's not a CRMR problem they don't care since it's just a staff accommodation problem. they have had visits from RCMP.
Housekeeping: If you want to get paid less than your supervisor when you do way more work than them apply here, housekeepers clean all the rooms and do "bags" at the end of the day while the supervisors sit around and complain how long the day was when they have only checked rooms and won't help do bags. Instead of jumping in and helping them do bags they just sit and complain. Complete laziness.
If you're front desk, bellman, or a server you can't have any visible tattoos or piercings (I was lucky enough I could keep my nose stud in considering some workers have had to remove theirs)
If you do go through with working for this company I would recommend having a vehicle and apply in the summer since that's when you will make the most money.
The only pro to this job is the hours and money during the summer/fall
would strongly recommend not applying in the winter as it's slow.
