    I worked at Grange Hotels full-time

    Pros

    - Free food
    - Fixed amount of hours
    - Friendly multi-cultural team

    Cons

    - Low salary
    - They're completely ignoring trainees and you have to work 6 days per week as a trainee for at least 3 months.

    Advice to Management

    Have several people to decide if the trainee had passed the probation period, not just one.

    I worked at Grange Hotels full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Too easy to get a job here. Turned up at an open day, only asked 2 questions for an interview. 2nd interview asked 2 further questions, then they printed a job offer letter.

    Cons

    Unprofessional and unhelpful from the beginning. Almost no training, was thrown into the deep end on the first day. First week was given a long list of responsibilities and expected to know everything. Scrutinised over every little detail, patronised and belittled. Backstabbing and boot licking going on.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees properly from day one.
    Do not overwork people to the point where they no longer have any social life.
    Improve the wages - works out to be below minimum wage.

    I worked at Grange Hotels full-time

    Pros

    It was piece of cake to get hired.The interview had the common questions, I had an answer at the end of the interview, after a few minutes waiting.
    The stuff was very friendly, we had a great team.

    Cons

    The hiring process was so fast that it seemed dodgy, now I know why:
    -poor salary
    -4-5 hours between shifts (finishing at 11 PM and start the second day at 7 AM, so basically after commuting you have 5 hours to rest) usually twice per week
    - no career progress opportunities
    -poor management

    I worked at Grange Hotels (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extensive experience
    Gaining titles easily
    Easy to move between hotels

    Cons

    I worked in Grange in 2 of its hotels in multiple positions, Inc in senior management role.
    You would surely get the solid experience in hotel industry and That's it. Don't expect anything more.

    The staff turnover would be unbelievable and mostly it would be about training new staffs, the HR system in the company is absolute joke with unqualified HR Managers.

    Like other reviews rightly said, right contacts with people or with the directors can get you any position and the whole environment can be very political.

    If you are simply desperate for a role to kick start or survive then ok..if not pls stay clear.

    Advice to Management

    Serious need for change.Staffs must be empowered and HR system must completely change
    Need of serious culture change too

    Pros

    None. This is a truly bad company that do not look after their staff. Its just a conveyor belt of foreigners who they exploit, over work and under pay.

    Cons

    Terrible management who clearly lack the qualifications/experience needed for their role. Run by friends of the owners rather than qualified individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting corners
