    Pros

    - nice team
    - trainings
    - extra half hour paid overtime if you have more rooms than the standard number.

    Cons

    - cleaning up to 16 rooms a day. If you get all check outs then you have really short time to do it all.
    - hard to keep up with standards with many rooms to do
    - getting rooms to clean in one day on three different floors ( so etines end up running out of time )

    Advice to Management

    Employee more people to maintain standards.

  2. its a joke

    Pros

    nice location thats about it really, shame the pay was so low you couldnt enjoy it, this company decided to pay me a wage less than i was earning at 14 despite being told it would be bumped up

    Cons

    poor quality food, i the only reason i wanted to work here was because of the ethical side of the food i would be cooking i asked all the right questions in my interview, but i was given lies as a response. their beef was the worst i have ever seen from a mass supplier which has been the cause of many environmental issues, i was told of the all the fish would be wild which was a load of bull it even said it on the menu it was wild! pay is very very low too!

    Advice to Management

    get you act together if your going to set company standards then stick to then and dont blow them off so you can get a bonus because your GP is in check
