I’ve been working here for almost 2 years now and it’s the best place to work. My manager is very lenient and the best, I was diagnosed with a disease and was off for a very long time but they didn’t fire me yet they were able to accommodate it. I’m so thankful I found this workplace..

Don’t work here. Everyone treats you like garbage, and cleaning staff are extremely shady. They don’t do background checks so you have no clue who you’re working with. You don’t get breaks because of the down time and the management won’t properly pay you due to not wanting to give overtime pay if passing 40 hours
Pros
Breakfast/food from continental restaurant, lots of down time
Cons
Unprofessional management, unprofessional cleaning staff/untrustworthy

The interview lasted for 10 minutes. They ask me reasons why I leave my last job and how did I heard about the hiring. They are very polite and ask you easier questions that is in your resume.

Management is terrible, training can be better. I had 4 days of training, first 2 days I didn’t learn anything except watch videos which were somewhat helpful but not really.

My experience working at Holiday Inn was the best job experience I have ever had. It was a happy environment, was a positive, friendly place to work. My co-workers were like family. I looked forward to my next shift, and didn't want it to end. That's the type of environment it was...for me anyways.
Pros
Opportunities to work in all departments.
Cons
I wish it had been a permanently position because I'd probably be still employed with Holiday Inn.

The Holiday Inn Express and Suites is a fast-paced high volume hotel. Each day can be different. Problem solving and multi-tasking is a main criteria. Guest from all around come and stay and professionalism is your best combat for dealing with guest. Some slight competition is a little factor and punctuation. It's not a bad place to work but, as a reminder you are downtown Oshawa.
Pros
Easy shifts
Cons
Problem guests

Where to begin..... The owner pays you every 15 days WHEN he feels like it. You do not get paid for over time. You are NOT given the proper PPE when cleaning he rooms. There is mold growing in the walls of the hallways and rooms. Half of the rooms in the hotel have black mold. All fire extinguishers are 5 years out of date. Management is toxic,they start fights and do not settle work place conflicts. Your hours
Pros
You have a job
Cons
The stress and drama

There was always a guest complaining, (I would have too) about the quality of the hotel, on busy weekends only one elevator would work, bugs, etc. It’s probably the worst hotel in the city, it isn’t somewhere I would stay for even one night. A front desk agent position would be an okay job if it was a different location
Cons
Guest complaining about things management should have taken care of

I was working in kitchen staff and work was really fast paced as we have to arrange breakfast and we have to change it as before the stuff finishes and to take care of all cleaniness and guest satisfaction.

One word. Micro-Manage. That's all you need to know. Oh yeah, one time during the winter they sent me out in a raging blizzard to bring guests to the airport in a shuttle van with NO WINTER TIRES. After trudging through several times, the snow and ice packed together on the roads and became slippery and thick. So thick, in fact, that when I returned to the hotel the shuttle van got stuck and the general manager (who chose not to get winters when i let him know we didn't have any on) had to come outside in the freezing cold and push me loose while the wind whipped him in the face. Remember kids. Safety first.
Pros
I'm sure there were some pros, just gimme a sec..
Cons
Being asked to cover for your co-workers shifts, make up for their poor quality of work, not being able to leave the property on your break

This was my first hotel job and I started as a Front Desk Agent. Within the first yeart of my employment I applied for a promotion for Housekeeping Manager and I was awarded the promotion. I grew my knowledge over 2 years and again I was selected for an internal contract to be a Sales Manager for a year, to cover a maternity leave. This hotel provided me with so much knowledge about the industry and allowed me to grow within my chosen industry.

Interesting place to work if you want to grow and get new experiences every day. I have worked in other hotels too, but the management and work ethics are pretty different here. The customer is given the most preference and the employees have been trained to do no compromises when it comes to guest satisfaction. A place to learn and grow is what Holiday Inn Express is all about.

Well I worked at this place of employment for only a short period of time. It was a very toxic environment. At the time of my employment the HR department was a joke
