    Pays well, good people, no to much pressure, multitasking required to do your job makes you improve your personal and work related skills.

    Overgrown management system, little development possibilities, some managers with lack of understanding of their department

    Promote internally, especially longlasting loyal employees that have a drive and experience.

    I worked at Apex Hotels part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent employee system, adhering to standards at all times, different tiny perks like leave bonus and free bowling. Comparing to other

    Cons

    schedule could be more flexible, very formal conflict resolution practice. A lot of very good ideas by management in theory, but with no adjustment to reality when implementing them in practice.

    Pros

    Meals on duty, salaries always on time and the GM who is actually the only high ranked guy who wants to help

    Cons

    Manager and the assistant manager from the restaurant are not the best people to work with, they make your job pretty hard.

  8. "It's a Hotel..."

    Star Star Star Star Star

    Pros

    Mostly friendly waiters/waitresses. No job in life will ever be worse.

    Cons

    As with all hotels I was unfortunate enough to work in, the pay is minimum wage because legally they can't pay you any less. Chefs were absolutely bonkers and exempt from the law. Managers had some sort of superiority complex, unique only to hotels because the pay is so little for those they manage and the staff speak little English and are just trying to get by. If I ever had to work here again I wouldn't, I'd go on the dole and probably love it.

    Advice to Management

    Your minimum wage staff are fellow human beings who need to pay rent just like you. Being on minimum wage was the most difficult time in my life and I will always have a soft spot for criminals because after serving the wealthy whilst earning minimum wage, it is evident that there is a large proportion of the population that just doesn't care.

    I have been working at Apex Hotels full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are incredibly friendly. The team is very multicultural, people come from all over the world. There are no hierarchy barriers between management and employees and it is very easy to speak to anyone. It really feels like a family.
    There is a great mindset of trying do to even better. People are encourage to speak their mind.
    The company is also very successful in its category. The product itself is very good and the service is excellent.

    Cons

    The pay is not great... but it is hospitality, and it compares to bigger brands like Hilton, Marriott...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work !

    You basically have to run around, no real training, other employes don't talk to you, unrealistic expectations

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the office and try doing the work- you wouldn't last!
