    I worked at Four Seasons full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, employee cafeteria, uniforms are laundered and provided and generally a great work environment. They really make the employees feel wanted and retain a great number. I really enjoyed working there.

    Cons

    The reason that I left was the hours. I was never on a regular schedule, some weeks I would work 3 different shifts in the same week. For instance on a Monday I may work 7AM - 3PM, Tuesday 3PM - 11PM, Wednesday 3PM - 11PM, Off Thursday, Friday 11PM - 7AM, Sat 11PM - 7AM, Sunday off. It just was really hard to deal with the sleep deprivation. The other con would be working weekends, nights and every holiday. It get's old when you can't spend time at the holiday's with your family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you hire Managers fresh out of college, their heads tend to swell really big, really fast. Keep them humble by letting them work in the trenches a lot more during their first years with the company.

    Interview Details

    HR refused to interview me when I said I would not work on Sundays. I went home, bypassed HR and called the Pastry Chef directly. He set up the necessary interviews and I was hired on. The interview process was interesting: first with HR, then the pastry cook, then chef, then food and beverage director, and finally the general manager.
