Receptionist (Former Employee) – Suffolk – 9 July 2018
A pleasant job but a lot of repetition. If you got caught with the 3-11pm shift it would take away from your own free time. Part time workers would take extra hours out of choice but there contracts were never increased.
Front of House (Current Employee) – Birmingham – 10 July 2018
same jobs day in day out not structured training plans management is poor and they delegate most work to shift managers hardest part of the job sometimes is dealing with difficult guests but I like to see this as a challenge of good customer service
With other hosts your never alone meaning you can share the work between each other, theres structure in the evening and morning due to breakfast and dinner shifts, (0700-1500 or 1500-2300) time always goes quickly and fun people to work with.

Hotel Receptionist (Former Employee) – Liverpool – 28 March 2018
I can't speak any higher of the staff, from housekeeping to management everyone shared the common goal of making the hotel the best it could be. The salary was excellent and the work felt meaningful and provided the chance to interact with guests in a friendly and gratifying way.
High Salary, Abundance of Shifts, Opportunity to work at other branches.
Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Mansfield – 8 March 2018
Being a housekeeper at Premier Inn is hard work. It can take several months to be able to clean a room in the allocated time to a high expected standard. I found the job physical, but enjoyed the hard work and satisfaction. Management, Head Housekeepers and my colleagues were really helpful, friendly and hard working.
Good benefits, work school hours, can request days off
Min wage, weekend work, can be short days in winter, long days in summer
Duty Manager (Former Employee) – Walsall, West Midlands – 6 March 2018
This company does not offer enough promotional opportunities. Require flexible hours that suit the company and not you. Before apply be aware of the allocated hours as they will eat into sociable hours.
Nights Receptionist (Current Employee) – Liverpool Albert Dock – 1 March 2018
The benefits for working at the Premier Inn are great. Management doesn't really understand the effects of mental health vary from person to person and don't really show any sympathy when you have an episode. Its the type of job where you either love it or hate it. I started to like it, until the management changed that and now, I am unhappy working there. Everyone is different, so, don't take my word for it. It's up to you to make up your own mind about it.
Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 11 February 2018
Good company to work for but it is going through a lot of restructuring which doesn't give great job security. Also work life balance is poor for a manager. On call 24 hours a day and if someone calls in sick you have to cover it yourself.
