Auditor (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 17 October 2018
The company/owners changed three times in the duration of my employment. The hotel progressively got worse to work for with each changeover/merger. Poor communication, poor stability in management, poor compensation. I stayed for too long, mostly due to the strong relationships I had built with co-workers. And our desire to stay and support each other.
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 5 October 2018
Job was fun because you got to meet new people everyday. Learned to work in a team setting with the housekeeping staff, restaurant/banquet staff. Management was great, made sure we had fun but were also serious about job. Had awesome Christmas parties!
Served and greeted guests attending an event at the hotel, and also general cleaning
Dining Room Attendant (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 15 September 2018
It is an Wedding occasion the same time it is New Year`s Eve. I learned to cooperate with my adult co-workers and reviews the food of the guest if they have their allergies. I think the hardest part is holding big plates and glasses ware in a tight place and surrounded by 100 people. I enjoy the most is all my hard work becomes worth it and the experienced I had with different types of people. When I see them smiling and appreciate what I`m doing make me feel overwhelmed and proud to my self.
Houseman (Current Employee) – Moncton, NB – 6 September 2018
I worked at the Four Points by Sheraton for approximately 1 year. I found the atmosphere positive and the management friendly. There was a certain air of professionalism there. Overall I can't find anything to complain about. The only detractor was that it was very hard to get a raise there.
challenging and enjoying while cleaning the rooms.

Customer Service (Current Employee) – 123 Queen West Street Toronto Ontario – 24 August 2018
It is a typical day at work is physical work more cleaning, vacuuming and beddings, I learned to work fast and think fast what I need to do in order to get it done my 16 rooms in 8 hours. The management not so much comment the are great doing their own jobs. Work place are safe, fun and productive place to work on.
The hardest part to work of the job when I am sick going to work. It is risky and not safe if your not feeling well to work. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the time I enter the room to clean is I found money on the bed or on the table as my tips also if the guest left their things and they never claim it after 60 days it goes to mine.
Free drinks and some treat free foods every 3 month for all the birthday celebrant.
no breaks if you want to finish your rooms breaks is optional.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 22 August 2018
I worked there for about two days and ended up quitting they used the same rags all day the staff was rude and they lost my direct deposit so to get paid was a huge hassle and working from 8-7pm everyday sucked they also used the same three rags on the floor all day long and to clean the bathroom floors I was provided with a lint roller to get hairs off the floor so you can imagine how sore your back and knees get!!!
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 2 August 2018
Chefs put you on 6 days in a row and the workload is horrific. The kitchen is gross and not only is the dishwashing machine a sputtering antique, you are swamped and still expected to play janitor at the end of your shift. Brutal.
Shuttle Driver (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 July 2018
Hours are all over the place, no rarely work the same shift more than 2 days in a row. Minimum pay and only raises are legislated ones. Work alone at night. Assigned duties not in line with your area of work.
none, even the discount for staying at group hotels is minimal
never a raise. never encouragement from management, never work just your area, can be assiged to tasks other than your job specifics
