    Current Employee - Former Employee in Dundee, Scotland (UK)
    Current Employee - Former Employee in Dundee, Scotland (UK)

    I have been working at Apex Hotels full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The only pro is the free car park for staff.

    Cons

    Zero training and training times, if you reader have a bit of an understanding of how a hotel runs i can tell you that the cost of labour for the overall operation is 22% when a normal four star hotel would run at 33%.
    This is not a four star company and the staff levels are more similar to a premier inn where multitasking is king.
    Plus if you really wish to work 15 hours a week of unpaid overtime this is the place for you.
    They only care about their money as they are owned by a family of accountants.
    Staff are overworked, training is impossible to develop plus senior managers haven't got a clue of how to run the place but they have a degree in exploiting people.
    Do not work for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care less about profits and more about your employees and your customers.You make profits do you?There are also fair profits in the world of business even if you are a profit organization.

    I worked at Apex Hotels full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    My colleagues were lovely as were the clients.

    Cons

    HR bullied management on a daily basis made life a misery for many managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the current HR department need to be replaced with a department who understand the dynamics of Management and staff relations. As it currently stands the HR department break all kinds of employment laws and then harass management out of their jobs when they confront HR about their behaviour.

    This company really nee o support Management and stop breaking the law .
