    I worked at Principal Hotel Company part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Other waiters were friendly, pay was okay, location was lovely and had good links to transport.

    Cons

    Management was not adequate to say the least, rota quite often came out 24 hours before they expected you to come in for a shift, the pay did not match the pressure managers and supervisors put you under, understaffed and a high staff turnover (I now understand why), kitchen staff absolutely horrible to the waiters - quite often heard vulgar comments from male kitchen staff about not just female waiters but female managers as well. Staff are not valued and definitely not respected as they should be.

    I worked at Principal Hotel Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lovely environment to work in
    Meals provided
    Bonus scheme

    Cons

    Long hours with no overtime paid

    Too many managers not enough staff

    Going in at management level should be ok as treated better than staff below, read contract prior to accepting & request increased salary as budget will allow.

    Pros

    The shifts are very flexible when you are part time you can pick which shifts you are available for on a weekly basis which is ideal for students.

    Cons

    Late hour shifts. Some shifts don't finish until 4-5am which can be difficult if there is no public transport available going to your house at that time.

    Advice to Management

    Performance appraisals, more training and communication with staff
