    Room Attendant

    Room Attendant (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsI was just arrived in London and I found this job opportunity very soon. The head housekeeper mailed me to arrange an interview the day after. The interview was very simple.

    ConsDuring the interview the manager told me they were looking for a part-time or full-time room attendant, I was looking for a part-time job, so I accepted. But every day they gave me 2 more rooms, so every day I spent more time cleaning rooms. It was too much for me and I quit.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
