Was laid off from my job due to Covid 19...in March. I was never called back , (I was a housekeeper for almost 5 years), and was told they no longer had my housekeeping position due to " restructuring of the company", but get this...they hired a cleaning company. Like seriously. Something wrong there. Very stress full and difficult place to work, the company doesn't seem to care about their employees...not a very friendly environment and not at all supportive, they care more about the guests than they do about their staff... hard work, short staffed, not even a thank you at the end of the day for the hard work that you do. Years ago it used to be a fun place to work. Not anymore. It is not a very healthy place to work, maybe if they treated their staff with more respect, and showed their appreciation to their staff for all the hard work that they do, the staff might even enjoy working there.
every once in awhile we would have pizza day for lunch
very stressfull, hard work, too many rooms to clean on some days up to 23 rooms, working by yourself, not much help from the GM or Head Office.
I wasn't unhappy with my job until I caught a cold and was sent home for 14 days due to covid out break. I never had the symptoms. I was let go a week into my leave due to "Economic" reasons and was never called back even for another position that was suitable .
Good work team
Got dismissed because of covid and never got a call back even for another position
i work night shift at this hotel. mostly quiet working in nights. everyday new experience handling different type of guest. i do night audit for this company. i have to balance all day transaction and need to close all accounts.
GM/Regional Manager micro manages everything and everyone. This type of leadership does not allow one to grow in their role or with the company. She tends to play God with your future. She is outstanding in Operations, but a terrible people manager. The culture supports this bullying type of management style. The hotel has huge turnover. The Sandman brand has many positives. They need to be more progressive in changing their iron fist management style. It's time to retire the dragon lady!
The Canadian company brand
The old fashion management style
Sandman is just an ok place to work at. I was the night auditor and the only staff on site from 11pm to 7:30am. It was stressful when there were teams staying at the hotel. The manager who took over in the morning was always late and blamed it on traffic ALL the time. There was no security so if a sketchy person came in, it was up to you and the non-emergency police line.
Nothing i can think of
I busted my but working for these people for three and a half years and was paid only minimum wage the same amount of money as somebody with no experience even though I had 10 years of experience. I'm a very fast paced individual so I cleaned double what other people cleaned. The place is a joke
I'm working as a night auditor at the Sandman Hotel in British Columbia. Every person who is working with me, especially my general manager are really helpful and supportive.
Staff is amazing , job is fast passed and stressful and feels like alot of pressure somedays. Management don't know how to appreciate there staff and take you for granted. There is a serious dis connect with employees. Lack of communication and not paid for over time
I have bad knees and when I had to do the washrooms in the rooms, there was no broom to use, they told me I had to use a rag an spray bottle to sweep and mop the bathroom floors on my hands a knees. Terrible and rude staff members that were horrible at training.
