This is not an easy job per say. It is physically demanding, days can be long, however I feel very accomplished at the end of the day. We work as a team to get the work done.

In the Banquet department it was slow paced for the most part, but very fast paced and sometimes stressful during dinner services. Many opportunities as they put you in multiple departments.

I was basically a slave working this job. I was so exhausted after the 12 hour shifts that I would sleep for 12 hours just to come back again... this job still gives me nightmares over 3 years later... dont sign the contract or you're trapped for at least 2 weeks!!!

One of the best places to work. Very friendly even family like environment. Lots of diversity and respect for the multicultural work environment. I automatically felt like part of a team and fell in love with the people who work there, I’m so happy to be a able to work with such a wonderful group of people. Another benefit is that they offer great discounts for stays at the hotel, golfing and fitness for the employees who work here. I definitely recommend anyone who is looking for a job in the hospitality industry to come and apply, this is a beautiful resort with fantastic people and lots benefits, truly a great place to work.

My job was in maintenance and I worked for the Nottawasaga for 14 years and retired recently. Each day was different, my work included repairing damaged Dry wall, wallpaper, kitchen equipment, electrical failures, plumbing leaks, fine woodwork and some welding. I learned much about the business and extended my knowledge in the field of building maintenance. I enjoyed new challenges and problem solving, especially with machines with which I unfamiliar. The most frustrating part was trying to source parts from external companies to make repairs. The most enjoyable part was to see elements in the Hotel that I had made or installed and know that they would be there for many years to come.
Pros
Fantastic friendly workforce
Cons
Shifts

I love working at the Nottawasaga Inn Resort. It is a great place to work if you want to grow in your career. Great work place to learn from different departments. Sometimes long hours are needed just like in any hospitality business but, hey! who said good things in life come easy. Management is supportive and understanding. Staff in general is friendly and great to work with, as per the owners, they are understanding, humble and always welcoming. Since day 1 it has been a pleasure to be part of the Nottawasaga Inn team.

There are many employees who have been working there for over 20 years and that says something in itself.

They were super flexible with me when I decided to go to college and they gave me a schedule that allowed me to have a good balance of work and school life.


The Biffis family are kind and caring to their employees and often have appreciation days etc.


If you are an adult who can be on time and complete the job description you were given you will truly enjoy working here.


If you are self entitled and lazy it's not the Nottawasaga Inn that's the problem, it's you.

The Nottawasaga had flexible part time hours allowing for activities outside of work. The staff ensure a happy and productive workspace. Management is unorganized.

What can I say about this place. So much potential but completely out of touch with service culture and what the hospitality industry stands for. Management here are atrocious and you really can't fault them because I look at the top for leadership ie. the ownership group. With the exception of one owner I don't have anything really nice to say about the other 4 owners. If staff do a good thing or make a customer happy then you should be at least rewarded or recognized for it and not be reprimanded for it. All of the renovations are nice and they truly want to upgrade and keep up in the resort industry. Let's face it without the staff that work hard here on a daily basis, all of the renovations is lipstick on a pig. There are a handful of long-term employees with the mindset that they can dictate policies and do what they want because they have been here forever. The bullying that I have seen both during the day and overnight is really sad and is harmful to the service culture they try to portray.

I don't want to sound negative as I have had some good times here and met some great people. I'm just very disappointed in the way this played out and honestly felt this way my only way to vent and give people here an honest opinion of my time spent here.
Pros
Somewhat edible soup, Employee Christmas Party
Cons
Not knowing schedule until it is released, lack of clear defined leadership from the ownership group, terrible service culture, gossip mill that runs rampant here.

Great co-workers, nice people. I enjoyed working there. Managers were nice, customers were great (most of the time). It's funny to see fat men try to get free bacon when they get their kid to grab a plate FULL, then try to convince server they only should get charged for the "Cold" buffet. (Claiming they only had cereal)
Pros
free lunches
Cons
short hours

Formed many new friendships and built very strong camaraderie. A typical day in the life of a housekeeper required commitment and strengths in many different departments ranging from cleanliness to social aspect.

I lasted 3 weeks, made to feel completely stupid on a daily basis, they talk to you like you're an idiot. And I was a supervisor! Management is horrid, they treat housekeepers awful.
Owners of resort are snobby cheapskates that pay lousy wages and expect maximum work plus some.

Best avoid working here if you can.
Pros
None come to mind
Cons
Theres simply not enough room here

Working at the Nottawasaga Inn was great. A typical night for me was providing coat check for the guests and also serving them with food. I also answered questions they may have asked. Overall working there was a great opportunity for me as it taught me the skills of working with others and working with customers or guests.
