Definitely not my favourite job
Housekeeping (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC31 October 2018
Staff are hard to work with. Organization there isn’t even a thing! No one works well with each other. And the management doesn’t seem to be worried about their job or maintaining a staff let alone keeping the cleanliness of the hotel at best. I wouldn’t stay there as a guest because of how dirty it is, even after working there.
Pros
Full time schedule
Cons
Staff, cleanliness, management... etc

Best Company if you want to advance
Front Desk Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Kelowna, BC23 September 2018
Sandman spends a lot of time talking to front line employees. Even the most senior regional managers and VP's come and meet with us and ask for our opinion. The difference here is that once they listen to us, they actually take what we said and make changes, and get us what we need to do our job. The other great thing is that if you want to move up in the company, they always let current employees have the first crack at promotion. It's hard work but I'm really happy to work for a company that listens to it's employees and that has senior managers that actually care.
Pros
Advancement. Management that actually cares and listens to staff.
Cons
Hospitality in general can be tough work!

negative work culture
Guest Services Manager (Former Employee) –  Okanagan Valley B.C.29 April 2018
As a shift manager you are expected to work long hours, often staying 2 to 3 hours over your eight hour day. Low salary, and expectations are way too high. The lines between each persons roles are blurred. The property where I worked was severely understaffed and it seemed like upper management was constantly cutting hours. Very negative place to work.
Pros
if you are lucky enough to get full time employment, dental and medical benefits are offered
Cons
Long hours expected, Low Pay, Too many constant policy and procedure changes

Been with the Sandman company for years. They treat their employees with the out most respect. They have an open door policy if you have any type of complaints.

Not a real position
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) –  Fraser Valley Regional District, BC3 October 2017
Wasted my time working here. As soon as regular staff vacations were covered the position disappeared. They do the same thing every year. On the plus side the workers are for the most part ok. If you want to unplug toilets for a month or so this is for you.
Pros
Easy maintenance.
Cons
Not a permanent position (though that is what they advertise).

This was the worst job ever.
Housekeeper (Current Employee) –  Penticton, BC28 January 2017
I had a hardtime staying positive and able to focus on work here.
There is no consistent staff from gm to housekeeping.
The workplace culture is unsupportive and lacking positive consistent training.
Wages are low for the kind of work expected.
Pros
None
Cons
Tiring unorganized negative workplace.
