Bartender
Bartender (Former Employee) –  Scotland8 December 2017
Started off well but after a holiday the GM turned on me. GM had been very supportive and wanted me working there long term but was dismissed shortly after returning from my holiday. Direct line manager came in after me and seemed to feel threatened by my skillset immediately. Holiday pay structure is poor and was not explained. Contract was terminated due to lack of hours as business forecast was wrong, even though i had predicted that it would be a quiet spell and someone would be dismissed. Warning would have been nice. Staff only got staff meals if they lived on site or the GM wasn't around. Often had to cover 3 or 4 departments at once while on minimum wage. Would not work for company again
Pros
Guests were nice as were most colleagues. Fun atmosphere at times
Cons
Management. Pay

Not an employee focused business
General Assistant (Former Employee) –  Oban22 April 2016
The implementation of the Fair Fund was ridiculous, resulted in me giving up employment immediately.

On the whole they are very poor employers. The hotels are put under a lot of pressure from head office to achieve yet they lack basic management. It is a very confusing company to work for. Complete disregard for their employees. Very much a boys club at the top of the chain.
Pros
Free staff meals & Uniforms
Cons
Long working hours, lack of respect, poor rates of pay
