Avis d'employé sur Best Western
Extremely interesting and fun place to work.
Front desk was very interesting. Always different challenges and meeting new people from around the world was a very great experience. We had different types of conventions or weddings and banquets in which I would be involved in organizing. Making sure all tickets were accounted for and that the overall flow of the event went smoothly. I would have to tend to complaints of the floors. For example if there were people being too rowdy I would have to politely tell them to quiet down. Make sure that there wasn't anyone in the pool area unattended to if they were under age. Replenish the sundries. Would be the one to go out and purchase sundries if the inventory was low. Emptied and balanced the parking meter. Made sure cash balanced at beginning and end of shift. All in all this was a very nice clean and safe place to work.

This family run hotel is a great spot to work. The management team is amazing, trustworthy and fair. During the busy season there is a good vibe and tons of people to meet. Also, if your past job experiences allow, you can help out in different departments of the hotel.
If you're a robot that will dedicate your life to the hotel, or a student working part time, you'll be fine. Otherwise, go elsewhere, the workplace ethic of the full time staff there is barely human, and the (absentee) owner's business ethic will make you question life itself. Be careful what you say to whom, it WILL be used against you. But if you're fine minding your own business and doing the daily tasks for about an hour, and spending the remaining 7 hours doing barely anything you'll be fine.Great support staff, housemen (a.k.a. janitors), maintenance people, and the housekeeping are fantastic people that you'll WANT to be friends with. Barely got to get to know the rest of the front desk staff as I basically worked alone my entire (relatively short) time there.Management disapproves of independent minded people that would rather know why certain things are done the way they are, instead of doing them blindly. Also, the Accountant/Front Desk Manager barely works during the daytime, so good luck getting feedback from the only person that can tell you if you make mistakes. Hardest part is the dead time, you'll literally sit there for hours doing nothing at times, you'll yearn for the times where 15 people show up at the same time.Best part however is when people feel valued by you due to the nature of your good service, seeing your name appear in reviews will make your day. And like mentioned above, DON'T OPEN UP TO PEOPLE WITH YOUR SAME JOB TITLE, some people actually arrive early with the specific intention to talk with management about what goes on behind their - plus...
Great support staff that will make your day so much better
Terrible relations between management and staffing. You have no value there as an employee, you're a meaningless cog.
