Ambiente muy bueno y agradable entre todos los compañeros.
Es una cadena de hoteles muy buena y repartida por todas las zonas. Mi hotel estaba justo en el centro y ofrecía desayuno incluido en el precio. Muy recomendable.

okay company
not a bad place to work, it is as you would expect for a job in hospitality, very relaxed atmosphere, and chilled management, all areas of staff in the hotel comunicate well and is a good place to make new freinds

Avoid this company at all costs
If I could rate it zero stars I would. It is a toxic place with toxic people. It is slave labour, impossible to clean the rooms in the time given. Staff ring in sick regularly and you have to cover their rooms as well as your own. Avoid at all costs.

Stressfull and disorganised
Besides the absurd idea of a standing reception during the night, many tasks we were asked to do were repetitive and done automatically by the computer (just needed a bit of computer knowledge).
Coworkers talking on each other's backs; progress is not meritocratic yet changes on the people you know and on 'how long you have been there.

It's always someone else's fault, very hard to find people (both coworkers, subordinates and managers) who can actually take responsibility.

fast paced and can be stressful
tasks need to be done quickly as its busy in restaurant and events and you need to be thinking one step ahead to be able to stay on top of tasks and get everything done on time

Production rotating shift
The work was standard hours per week over a rotating shift system. The worse was to work Friday night and had to attend at 07:00 for a fully packed day until four with a full breakfast and lunch plus delivery to stores. Often only having two hours sleep and not going home leaving night duty shutdown at 03:00 after heavy Friday party night for eighteen months until taken into debt over car servicing. Had to wait some months before company pension given and was checked over by Chairman and CEO flown in from world duties plus what looked like the President of the USA under audit.

ambiente stimolante
da parte dell'azienda si avverte una gran premura nello stimolare lo staff al lavoro di gruppo ed al raggiungimento di obiettivi di grande ispirazione specialmente perche' vige molto la meritocrazia

I have 5 years working for Holiday inn
I say there have been good and bad moments. But the hotel as a company has done its best for the staff. Managers some have to be good other not so good. but You need to be patient and wait for the right people to manage the hotel. Bad managers always will be and you just need to be smart and wait for them to go.

I lived working for the holiday Inn but I moved away that's why I had to leave.
I work at the Farnborough Holiday Inn and I love every minute of the it I worked with fantastic and caring people. Once you've been there 1 year you get a bonus they celebrate birthday's by having a lunch with the manager.
Pros
Lots of benifits
Cons
Weekend working

Fun
Well Managed but need to.put your hands everywhere, no particular department exists eventhough what you applied for, Its good to have some experience on all around but it can put you in stress unnecessarily and can be left on your own initiative where, you can't be everywhere at the same time. (Think twice, what you applied for and what you end up doing)

On site management manipulates a lot of things
The sr managers specially the Chef’s being Asians have no work ethics , well supported by the operations manager many times the GM is not informed .chefs staying on site steal food and are very egoistic never like to cooperate with other nationalities
Pros
Gm is good
Cons
Don’t work in the kitchen as the chefs are not professional at all
