Work place is terrible, not safe environment

Hello, I have decided to take a job working in a kitchen. I thought it would be a good place working at the Fairmont Lake Louise. It is a good place, beautiful and wild nature. Beautiful hotel. But I would search more and think a few times before going there. Please, I am writing this review for you as it could be damaging coming here. The environment at the kitchen is unsafe, no sanitary, that can be very bad for your health. Because of the season and a lot of tourists at the hotel and its full. That's why the workers are not able to keep the kitchen clean, everything is desolving and spreading the toxins into your system. The machine is not cleaning properly and you have to do a job twice or even more before the grease will be removed. It has a bad smell and still has a lot of fat on it. The management is terrible, they do not listen and they shout and making it as your fault. The floors are full of water and they are also covered in fat which makes it easy to slip and get an injure. At the place where you have to live with your coworkers always will be a party. They do drags and alcohol. No one cares. There is no peace. No privacy. Girls were bringing the guys into a room for a night.

Pros

new people, experience

Cons

unsafe

Colleagues will throw you under bus

My experience was very cutthroat with this company. I felt like I was killing myself only to get thrown under the bus by my boss on multiple occasions. The company protects people in high management positions and doesn’t care about anyone else. THE MOST TOXIC WORK ENVIRONMENT.

Pros

Health benefits and free meals

Cons

No recognition for hard work, toxic work environment, HR ignores complaints, overloaded with work, etc.
