Team Member in Victoria, BC
on 10 March 2021
There are nicer hotels to work for in Victoria.
The pay is not worth it. Some shockingly low wages, even for the industry, with only the tiniest 50 cent annual increases. A fast-paced environment is enjoyable but poor staffing makes it unmanageable. Management does not seem interested in the growth of their employees and seems very distanced from the employees they oversee. They appear relaxed and comfortable while the rest of their staff run around in a stressed panic. Other team members were very kind and supportive alwaysTake my advice and apply to work for any other hotel in Victoria, you will be better off

Laundry Attendant in Victoria, BC
on 8 May 2019
Amazing people, just not for me
In a typical shift, one may be expected to sort and fold towels, fitted sheets, flat sheets, and any other laundry typically found in 4-star hotel rooms. One will also be expected to load and unload washers and dryers, sort through dirty laundry for stains, remove stains, and collect dirty laundry from the two hotel towers, gym, and spa. The only thing I can really say I learned is how much work goes into making hotels look nice, and what I should expect from hotels I visit. Management was fantastic, able to work my hours around prior commitments. Workplace culture was very kind. The people working at this hotel love what they do, and the hiring team is looking for that. If you aren't totally into housekeeping and laundry, this isn't the job for you, which is why I left. The hardest part of the job would be some of the folding, mostly because it can be heavy and awkward, as well as waiting for machines to finish towards the end of the night. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people. Everyone is really kind and loves what they do.
