Unionized environment at some properties

I worked at the Empress, very high hourly wages and great benefits. Tenured team that was at times resistant to change and development. Loved the staff cafeteria!

Fast paced. Great learning environment.

High energy required on a regular basis. Able to gain knowledge from the wealth of experience of coworkers and management. There is always someone who cares about your wellbeing, whether or not it is work related or personal life.

Positive culture

A great place to work. I have never worked at a friendlier place. You do not find the normal whinging that you find at most other jobs. A real positive team atmosphere.

Worst work environment

I have never had a work place as bad as the Mallard Lounge at the Fairmont in Whistler. As a junior server you are very poorly tipped (the senior servers keep 99% of it and the managers do nothing about it), over worked, and have no say. The physical work is unbearable and way more than what they say in the job description. Because of the way the junior staff were treated I will never recommend anyone I know to work there or even stay there asa guest

Pros

Whistler was beautiful

Cons

Everything about the job

Amazing place to work and grow your career

A company based on values and development, coupled with a major focus on luxury service for all guests. Wonderful opportunities for those starting out in their careers as well as executives that want to take the next step in hospitality.

Underpaid/Undervalued

While the work itself can be demanding and taxing at times. The colleagues you work with are what makes this place worth staying at. Senior management is out of touch with mid management and below. They will dangle promotions over you and often give them to the ones most eager and willing to take for low money. Never have I seen soo many director positions created just to keep talent that could make more elsewhere.

Nice leaderships, good employee's restaurant, friendly workplace

Fairmont Hotel is a good choice to work in the hotel industry. They offer completely employee's benefits such as shoes and massage for you and accommodation. And you will have a friendly workplace for working and a good employee's restaurant for free meals per day.

Fast paced, interesting place

- a typical day: check work requests, perform work. - what I learned: time management, work-life balance - management: good enough for workers, go above and beyond for guests. - workplace culture: very inclusive, lots of events - the hardest part of the job: not getting fat from all the treats - the most enjoyable part: the treats and appreciation for a job well done.

Good pay but toxic environment

I have friends working at different property and they enjoyed the work. So I applied at a different property when I saw they were hiring. Pay is good but the work environment is very toxic and no one seem to be happy working there (they only stay for money and benefits).

I didnt get any training, and when i brought it up to my supervisor they said I would have to figure it out on my own and they didnt get any training aswell. There turn around is very high. supervisor th
