Mostly friendly waiters/waitresses. No job in life will ever be worse.
As with all hotels I was unfortunate enough to work in, the pay is minimum wage because legally they can't pay you any less. Chefs were absolutely bonkers and exempt from the law. Managers had some sort of superiority complex, unique only to hotels because the pay is so little for those they manage and the staff speak little English and are just trying to get by. If I ever had to work here again I wouldn't, I'd go on the dole and probably love it.
Advice to Management
Your minimum wage staff are fellow human beings who need to pay rent just like you. Being on minimum wage was the most difficult time in my life and I will always have a soft spot for criminals because after serving the wealthy whilst earning minimum wage, it is evident that there is a large proportion of the population that just doesn't care.

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Apex Hotels (London, England (UK)) in June 2014.
Group interview and then one to one followed by a trial shift. It was very easy and it was important that you can work in a team, the group interview was just a bunch of playing games and describing situations. 1 to 1 was more about experiences. Overall, it was a good experience
