Productive environment with fantastic coworkers
Room Attendant (Former Employee) – Tofino, BC – 10 January 2018
My day was spent working in teams to clean the suites and common areas to a high standard of cleanliness. Great structure, fantastic business. Was rarely super difficult, except when it was crazy busy. Then good time management skills are needed to perform well in this position. Management was mostly fantastic, very understanding and fun to work with. For the most part, couldn't be more happy with this job. However there was obvious favoritism, and there were many days where I went home very upset as there was the odd manager or so who were very difficult to get along with. The coworkers were phenomenal though, felt like a big family as most of the employees also live on the property in the staff accommodation. Communication and benefits were great, as were the "higher-ups". High turnover rate of room attendants as the summer season is quite busy.
Hardest part of the job was the manager and that we were ill-equipped to clean toilets. (Gloves and rags: had to stick your hand in every toilet.) The part I enjoyed the most was the priceless view. From every section of this resort you had a breathtaking view of the beach. I was paid $13/hr and was on contract for full time, although an 8-hour day was rare. Overall I would definitely recommend Pacific Sands!
Free monthly staff lunches, great benefits, awesome view, fantastic coworkers
Management, hours were never full time despite being a full time worker
