Gorgeous setting, fun team, management needs a change
The Wick is overall a great place to work. In beautiful Tofino, you will be looking at the best sunsets on your evening shifts, step on to the beach after your shift, be surrounded by beauty and nature and be proud to work for one of the best resorts in Canada. The people they hire are overall great. Somehow everyone is super chill, relaxed and loves the Tofino life, YET wants to work hard and with the high service standard the Wick has.They pay pretty well, actually, compared to most hospitality jobs in Canada. The problem is that somehow management does not always see this. They have SUCH great employees and they say it's their most important thing, but it does not feel like it. It's really the senior management, as they have been there forever, so things are done "the Wick way". It often clashes with the fact that they hire educated and experienced people who HAVE actually worked in different places around the world, so might actually have good input. Management is approachable, they are good and kind people, they have a good sense of humor. But the gap between senior management and the rest of the employees is massive. And no matter how many times employees point out the faults or what could be done better - nothing changes. Senior Management is simply not really there and when they are - they micromanage. It can be extremely frustrating. It's a great place to work, but you just have to stop fighting, bite your tongue and let it be what it is, as some things will never change.

Incredibly low wage, 12 hour day, favoritism, staff that pride themselves in getting colleagues removed, ineffective senior management, low benefits,

Amazing place to work.
The people you work with are so amazing. Had a great experience working there. Would go back in a heartbeat. The Wick is an amazing experience. Tofino is amazing.

They hired me over the phone, got me to move there, into staff accommodations. Never mentioned I'd be sharing my room with a stranger. Right away, demanded I do extremely high level work, no training or support. The sous chef got weird and hostile when I didn't want to hang out after my first shift. Was demoted 3 days later, given a massive workload to pick up the slack for the chef's buddy. Was terminated without notice at 2 months, 29 days, because I wasn't improving quickly enough. All in all, terrible experience.

Great Employer Who Supported Hard Workers
I had a great experience working for the Wickaninnish Inn from 2014 to 2016. I spent two years as part of their F&B team- passionate managers, restaurant staff and kitchen team. The days were organized and tasks clear. In restaurants there's daily chaos- but that comes with the territory. I felt supported by both my teams, and the systems in place to protect, promote and engage employees. For me, they created such an exceptional employee experience. The management team and the inn's systems and structures made for a truly wonderful, supportive experience. I look back on my employment at the Wickaninnish Inn, and have to praise the team that created undoubtedly the most rewarding, constructive and supported experience I have ever had as an employee. They uphold great standards, and create great teams. It was my pleasure to be a part of the experience, for however short a time.
