Think carefully before coming here
Supervisor and Cashier (Current Employee) –  lake louise2 July 2018
I accepted a supervisor position at this location. The staff accommodation is shared and there is not a lot of privacy. My car was vandalized after a few days of arriving here. I never got a follow up back from security. I feel extremely isolated here almost like a prison. There is only a small bar down the road and nothing else to do except hiking. If you don't bring a car here good luck. I have also noticed a lot of people here have addictions. i've seen a lot of drugs and drinking which is hard when you don't do them to make good friends.

I would think twice about coming here. I am already considering my options to leave.

Great Hotel Company to Work For!
Security Services Agent (Former Employee) –  Lake Louise, AB5 April 2017
Fairmont as a whole is a great company to work for. It is luxury, friendly and nice. People are generally happy in their jobs and makes for a positive work environment. Chateau Lake Louise is a resort property, therefore has a different work/life balance compared to an urban city hotel property. Working security in Lake Louise offered a FAIR, rotating schedule which allowed for time off between shifts and working days to be out and enjoy the best natural landscapes that the Canadian Rockies have to offer.
Pros
Amazing staff resturant with great meals offered. Good staff accommodations.
Cons
Resort property environment.
