Like any job, some days are better than others.

Small property, in recent times close 7 hrs/ day. constant schedule change, so no WLB. Great set of colleagues. Management focus on cost crunch. Fast paced day of work with minimal breaks. In general there is a great culture in the hotel. Lots of opportunity to learn different sections or areas of each department.

It is a good place to work in terms of salary. Otherwise the work environment isnt a healthy one to work in. The team member knows their job but are not willing to earn anything new nor do they want to advance in their careers. The most enjoyable part of working in the company is working with a few team members who have positive vibes and see life in a different angel. They know when is the time to have fun and when is the time to focus in their work.

Working in Hamilton Princess is fun. I enjoyed working with colleagues whose ethnicity is diverse. I am a freak of learning ethnic cuisines. So, I get perfect opportunities to learn new ethnic dishes such as Chinese, African and Caribbean. At the same time, I also share my knowledge in my ethnic cuisine, Indian. After my work, I can participate in the hotel provided recreational activities such as swimming, power walking and playing outdoor games. I always go to the hotel beach to swim. There, I can use beach toys, towels, and amenities fee of cost. I also get time to pursue my own hobbies such as karate, reading my favorite novels and writing short stories. While working, I come under a lot mental and physical stress. When I join the one of activities, I feel relaxed and ready to take more challenging work and stress. Even though I enjoy working in Hamilton Princess, I feel that I need to move on to learn new cuisines and better job opportunities that has more sustainable characters.
Pros
accommodation is provided at a reasonable price
Cons
some management staff not good
