Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 2 January 2019
If you are good at your job and you know what you are doing you will be taken advantage of, you will be expected to pick up where other workers cannot whether that means doing an extra room or 5. You will not be given whimis training or be trained by someone who is properly taught to do so. Your opinions and concerns will not be recognized as important or even recognized at all. Your health is their last concern so expect to have to fight for a day off even if it’s a family emergency or a serious illness. Supervisors and management are entirely inappropriate and immature with the way conflicts and other issues are dealt with in the workplace.
Free awful tasting coffee
Immature management, overworked employees, 0 concern for they’re workers health
Laundry Attendant (Former Employee) – Nisku, AB – 1 January 2019
I appreciated my job ,I felt I worked to the best of my abilities, I liked the steadiness of the work and some of my coworkers were nice others were negative and gossipy so I tried to avoid them. the business was getting quite hectic, having more work then one person could handle for the pay that was offered.
Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 December 2018
Management is worst. Worst customer service. Poor place. I won't recognize this old hotel with any person. Poor and dirty rooms. Prices for the rooms are high compare to the quality. Not customer oriented hotel.
High expectations for a low quality Hotel, teribble managment, Very poors hours.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Woodstock, ON – 10 December 2018
Although the housekeepers are very nice. Theyre little too nice and be careful. The job culture here is disorganized, unprofessional, and they just want there work done. Being a new housekeeper of course I'm gonna obey the rules and do the extra work they ALWAYS asked me to do. But it got ridiculous when I noticed I was only one barely getting help and or always having to stay longer to help other girls. I'm not sure if all holiday inn hotels do this but it so unfair when your trying to stand out be the best cleaner this and that and then you get told that you don't get tips until 3 months ? And that all tips are split "equal"? Yeaa right the managers/supervisor probably take half of your tips. They seem like very suspicious people. Athough the hotel is nice looking maybe because it just got redone but take a closer look around.. the managers have there kids run around at the hotels on the weekends all the time.. always hear them yelling being a noise disturbance to the guest trying to enjoy their vacation or maybe trying to get their work done because of their for business..
Short days, VERY controlling with your unpaid time.
Excellent équipe d'entretien ménager Travail de 8:30 - 17h 30 min de repas non payée 30 min de pause payée mais on n'a pas le temps de les prendre Les superviseurs sont gentis 14 chambres a faire par jour. Des fois difficile de faire les 14 chambres a temps
Room Attendant (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 18 November 2018
I met new people of different cultures. On a regular day rooms need to be cleaned and beds need to be made, every now and then guests ask me questions to where find places nearby. I believe my experience was appreciated when hired.
Server (Former Employee) – Yorkdale, ON – 30 October 2018
Very fast paced restaurant, especially during breakfast hours. Managers expect a lot from workers. Guest are very demanding. Work culture is great, many of your coworkers are easy to get along with and the company cares about its employees.
