A good place to work if you are a student
Casual Waiter C&B team (Former Employee) – St. Andrews, Fife – 31 January 2017
Fairmont is a good place to work if you are a student needing a job while studying, I was employed as casual staff and found it very difficult to obtain a full time post at the hotel. The vast majority of full time jobs especialy managment roles are filled by non british workers; while I do acknowladge this is great for international guests, it seems to be that british applicants are overlooked on most full time applications.
During my time with Fairmont St Andrews I had spoken with the HR team about full time vaciancies to be told there wasn't any that I was able to apply for, however while checking the website a new advert for Barman had been posted just days before (I have worked behind bars of Hotels, Inns and Pubs at various levels on and off for the last 20+ years, I also hold a Personal Liciance); the post was filled by a none british person.
As stated Fairmont St Andrews is a great place to work if you are happy with a zero hours contract, the people you work alongside make the shift fun and its is frendly between staff members, the downside is if you are British and want a full time post.
Great place if you are wanting a zero hours contract
Very hard to move up to full time or obtain a post if you are British
