It's very very competitive work , you are in need of a high level of time management skills and experience in Housekeeping
My experience working at the Holiday Inn was not good but it gave me anxiety from being stressed out about how fast I could clean a guest room , you are under extreme work ethics and it must show or you do hear about it and your supposed to enjoy your place of employment but unfortunately a couple co-workers are territorial due their length of time there so the new girls start out with NOTHING on their carts , no linen because the older crew takes everything so this causes stress because you don't have the means to do your job correctly or in a timely manner, they need to fix that area of being fair to their new employees because when I worked there it was uncomfortable some days ,girls were crying from being scared of the management. Otherwise if your built for this kind of high stress and can use a high level of time management than I'd say you'd fit right in. But for some like myself I couldn't take the stress I felt each day going into work so I terminated my position.
Discounts at Moxie's, lunch and smoke breaks
Limited city transit on the weekends

Management is worst. Worst customer service. Poor place. I won't recognize this old hotel with any person. Poor and dirty rooms. Prices for the rooms are high compare to the quality. Not customer oriented hotel.
International discount on any Holiday Inn hotels
low salary and over work
On the surface it seems that it is a decent place, but thats just on the surface. I have noticed disregard for the safety standards of personal safety, PPE, heavy awkward lifting, working near deadly voltage/energized equipment without precautions. Workers dignity is also disregarded insofar shifts, or rude narcissistic behaviour from the higher management. I disadvise you to be part of an environment where discriminatory ethnic remarks are carried out by Operations Mgr or even termination threats out of the blue (on the side) if you voice disagreement on some aspects of what constitutes you own red lines. Workload is not evenly spread, often unrealistic tasks and the work-life balance is simply not there.
good, easygoing coworkers who are also walking the same shoes
poor management with no openness in communication; Not competitive salary rates
Independently owned hotels in Alberta are doing more with less these days. A flattening structure and reduction in front line personnel means that middle management takes over the roles of the agents, housekeepers and servers for a large part of the day, requiring a lot of extra effort and overtime for the managers.
Great Brand to work with
In my time working for the Holiday Inn Express, the staff have made me feel like part of a family. Everyone is concerned with your well being and management will do their best to make sure the schedule works for you. If you are ever unsure, co-workers are always willing to help at anytime of the day.
Enjoyed my 3 years working with this company. Kind managers, reliable co-workers who are eager to take a chance on people and give them training. You never know what will come through that door.
$3/day off your cheque and basically eat whatever you want off the menu!
Never know what will come through the doors.
i start work early in the morning and finish my shift around 5:30 pm The way they pay us is not fair.I get paid by how many bed we make.If i don't make 17 beds in my whole shift , they won't pay me full time. Which is not right. They were expected to pay me full time regardless of how may beds i make. I think the management is not good. I always work 8hrs
get paid by how many bed you make, not by how many hour you work. I think this is not fair the employees. They exploit us
The particular hotel I worked for no longer exits as it was The Holiday Inn The Palace on Gateway Boulevard. It is now a Sawridge. It was owned by IHG and we had the most incredible team, product and service while I worked there. Our clients were all repeat and loyal clients and we knew all of them by name. We ran like a fine tuned clock.
A typical day at holiday inn was really nice, but fast paced, clock in, stock the cleaning carts, go to the assigned rooms, clean the rooms and bathrooms, strip the bed sheets and put clean ones on. the woman I was with showing me the ropes told me I couldn't go on breaks and to take my lunch break after everyone else had theirs, to get rooms done faster. I'll admit I was slow at getting the hang of the repetitive work and that was my downfall and fully my fault. But I still didn't like the idea that I was told not to go on breaks. overall it was a great place to work and most of the staff were really nice and genuine people.
meeting great people, salary
suggested that i shouldnt take breaks and have a late lunch.
it is just an ordinary day to work in the morning, I learned to do my tasks in a minimum supervision. My co-workers are indeed supportive for each other.The hardest part of my job is when there is no stuff to provide but one thing I enjoy is when I receive a tip from the guests.
