    I worked at Alton Towers Resort part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good pay, flexible working hours, good when time off is needed, a reasonable amount of time for lunch break. Friendly staff, always willing to help when needed.

    Cons

    Workload often too much, staff bus was quite expensive and if you missed it you had to wait an extra hour/hour and a half for the next one.

    Advice to Management

    All housekeepers expected to complete 9 rooms in 6 hours, regardless of the state of the room (some rooms were often covered heavily in mess, e.g. food, rubbish, etc). For me, this was only just about doable when all the rooms were reasonably clean to start off with, and as such if even a single room was significantly messy, or if the daily job was one which was time consuming, then it often seemed impossible to complete the full 9 rooms on time.
