I worked for Lexington reception services. They move us like puppets arround, changing us last minute because they made mistakes in the rota, not aware of who is in and out sometimes. Trying to scare me of being fired when i have hard things going on in my life. No empathy at all. New managers who don't know what is legal to say or not and trying to take advantage of foreiners who want to start a career. I do not recomend lexington after my experience with them.
Pros
Payment
Cons
Management, too many sites

I worked for Lexington for just over a year and really enjoyed it. It was a fairly easy job but always something to be doing. Our managers were always on top of everything which made life for us easier.

No help from management, they need you there only to work as a donkey, if you have any problems or questions they make you feel like “you should not even ask”.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Management and all rules

My day varied depending on the business needs
I can narrow it down to the following which includes also part of what I learned:


Ensure that effective quality of services is provided to the standard of the client, customers and company

Meeting and following communication with customers for bookings and events

Ensure all legislation (health and safety, Allergens, etc.) is adhered to

Ensure the highest standards of presentation and cleanliness of all front and back of house areas and equipment (meeting rooms, storage areas, pantries, kitchens)

Ensure that administration is maintained to the highest standards on a consistent basis (stock-take, purchases, orders, keeping temperature records, cleaning schedules, allergen lists, menus editing and booking sheets, etc.)

Attending and supporting team meetings and training schedules

Ensure checks are carried out in the meeting rooms and associated areas for faults

Ensure that light and heavy equipment is well maintained and presentable at all times

Ensure that there is a thorough understanding of the daily work schedule

Ensure that all meeting rooms are cleared within a specified time and create a welcoming environment for the customers attending the meetings

Not the best compnay to work for, at least my departement. Some managers are given too much power and they will definitely abuse it.
Also the staff is treated as a number.
Pros
Flexible working hours
Cons
Managers abuse their power
