typical day at work just being on the phone helping guests with inquiries, very hard when it busy around summer time can get frustrating not being able to breathe on the phone but around christmas time very quiet and relaxed. incentives which are really enjoyable and help you work the extra mile to earn some extra money. overall a good place to work with good people.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – West Drayton, Greater London – 17 January 2018
Unreliable pay as you didn't know how many rooms you were going to get. Also I got under paid a few times when I was working for the company. When I asked for work they said they didn't have work for me but the other employers worked for the day. I got less rooms to clean than the other workers there.

Receptionist/Administrator (Current Employee) – London Bridge Station – 7 January 2018
Good benefits such as 50% off rooms but i have to work morning, late and night shifts all in the same week which is intense. Cant really socialise after a shift as you cant be bothered to and guests can/ will be unnecessarily rude and mess up your day. Good experience and good as a temporary job.
Free hot drinks, cheap hotel rooms and many different discounts
Receptionist (Current Employee) – South East – 5 December 2017
I can’t fault the company and what it stands for. There are great benefits to the company and you do feel part of a big family working for premier inn. But the management and their policies is absolutely absurd!!! I work as a receptionist which I love, love the guests love the work. But if someone calls in sick whilst your on shift it’s up to you to find cover from other sites. And unfortunately if no one can cover you are left with doing a 15+ hour shift, Ive heard stories of people doing close to a 24hour shift purley because you rely on you coworkers so much the policy is if you are calling in sick you can ring a minimum of 3 hours before your shift starts.......THREE hours to find cover at 4am it’s a ridiculous idea. I think it’s crazy. Your not entitled to a lunch or proper break. You can sit out the back and nibble on a sand which for a few seconds until you have to go back to your desk and deal with a guest. The hours are unsociable and the job itself can be slow leaving you with not much to actually do other than sit at the desk and wait for a guest to engage with. Unfortunately I wouldn’t recommend working for premier inn simply on this basis of the ridiculous idea that we are somehow robots who are willing to do 24hour shifts and have no breaks.
fantastic management and team fun and enjoyable workplace
Main duty as chef, producing quality meals (Former Employee) – Bourne End – 29 November 2017
a typical day was usually fairly busy i learned how to prioritize while in a busy cooking enviroment management was fantastic and always there when i needed them the team i worked with was fun energetic and ready and willing to get the job done whatever it took the hardest part of the job was when it got very busy but management was always there to step in and lend a hand the whole days work was satisfying as i loved the company and the staff so it was all round enjoyable
many benefits as it was a big company eg discount or relocation to thousands of other sites
sometimes hours would be longer than expected due to how busy
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Uxbridge – 26 October 2017
It was a nice environment to work and the colleagues and boss were very friendly and welcoming when I joint. I would definitely recommend working here as it was a fun experience to develop different types of skills as there are different areas to work in.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Crewe, Cheshire – 18 October 2017
Working alone you can just get on with it. You are expected to do a lot in such a short amount of time. Very repetitive work and not a lot of hours going for those who want them. Head housekeeper has her favourites and some get treated better than others. Poor management, no one is interested if you have a problem.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Stirling, Stirlingshire – 16 October 2017
The job it's self was fine but the time in which to complete tasks was crazy. They treated you like a robot. It was a labourous job with very little support on time management. The team were looking out for them selves with no team work ethics.
