In the events department, it's okay if your in education like in college or university and want to earn some money over the weekend. But I wouldn't recommend for someone who needs has a very busy life as you will most likely have to work overtime if there's a delay in service and/or cleanup. My shift pattern was usually 7pm to 3am but I often had to stay a lot later if set up for the next day wasn't complete.

Be prepared for a lot of walking and long periods on your feet. But it's fun interacting with guests and your colleagues while listening to the DJ (may also get pulled into the dance floor by guests too!)
Pros
Nice team, nice food, okay weekend job.
Cons
Long hours on your feet, overtime if your over 18.

Great place to work, enjoyed it a lot at the start.
Free food on shifts and management were good, also free gym access. Most of my coworkers were fantastic and it made the job easier. However definitely DO NOT start getting into relationships with staff... probably not a good idea. At all. Makes things extremely awkward and you might end up having to leave your job because of it...Apart from that, lovely place!

while i worked there and before the hotel was taken over by a different company, it was a good place to work and the team all worked and supported each other. There was a sense of care by staff and some management.

Work at Holiday Inn was repetitive and slow paced.
The organisation and priority of jobs could have been better. My immediate manager was fantastic but beyond that there was a total lack of support.

Relaxed work environment management is no good and neither is the salary I would not advise a friend to go and work there as my experience there was not the greatest.

Have been with IHG for almost 2 years and genuinely enjoy it, the team are so supportive within the hotel. I have originally worked at independent hotels and wow it is a huge difference.

Management are shocking, no training, no help, they don’t care, they don’t listen, then blame you when things are wrong.

Food safety is an issue, anyone cooks with no formal training, food left out on sides for ages, no rotation of stock, nobody cleans during the day, it’s all left up to the night staff.

A typical day at work there can start off relaxed and then come six o clock someone could phone in sick (which happened a lot) then you could be snowed under at the bar and have no help from the restaurant or management.
Pros
Friendly staff and regular residents.
Cons
For the money you get paid and the very long shifts it's not worth lossing your social life.
