Engineering Department

The co-workers from other departments treated me better than some of my co-workers in my own department.Union based seniority should never result in a perceived authority over a worker with more experience and qualifications.

Pros

Free Meal

Cons

Rotating shift work was too difficult to endure.

Run away while you can

Totally waste of your life. The management don't care about anything, except for themselves. They're completely the opposite from what they say. Run away while you can!

Beautiful place to work, amazing staff and management.

Great work life balance and amazing people to work with in the Guest services department. They understand and encourage activities outside of work and try and let you have the best work life balance along with other amazing perks from the hotel. My favourite employer hands down.

Pros

Fun staff including team members and management, great work life balance, unreal starting salary, lots of growth potential, beautiful place to work, free staff cafeteria

Cons

Can get a bit stressful but you have support from your team- can sometimes be boring but again, you work with an amazing crew

Exciting place to work. Great opportunity to receive experience in so many different areas.

I thoroughly enjoyed the work I did. It is a wonderful opportunity to try to turn moments into memories for our guests each and every day. It is also a privilege to work with a group of highly talented people.

Wouldn’t recommend to an enemy

Idiot managers and supervisors, inconsistent hours and schedules, little to no work life balance, terrible wages. Spend all day dealing with entitled self centred customers, a nightmare from start to finish

Pros

Health Benefits

Cons

Literally everything else

Great benefits

Overall work can be stressful at times (when its very busy) but management is helpful and supportive. Culture of inclusivity, diversity, and support. Pay could be better but is very competitive of the area (town is very expensive to live in).

Pros

Staff Activities, Mental Health Liaison, Free Lunches
