I feel sorry for the staff

Most work is from other departments or colleges. Work overload is not balanced.management only for themselves.culture not always respected and to be comprised. Loyalty level clients abuse where employees suffer. Enjoyable part when shift ends

Pros

Lunch charged at minimum price

Exploring Marriott on a daily basis( The Westin Hotel as an example)

Working at the Westin Hotel in Cape Town as a commi chef was wonderful. I've never in my professional career as a chef experienced such friendly hospitality from all staff and it's management team. I can only praise them enough for making my time always a pleasure being around them. It felt like home really.

Pros

Always be on time and diligent, Be honest and curtious at all times, They also say that honesty is the best policy

Cons

Never go into your work place with personal problems, Do not take that doesn't belong to you, Don't be lazy and never backchat to your superior, Follow instructions promptly

The culture is awesome u just need to be cautious as to where you find yourself within the organization

Awesome people to work with. Culture is great but certain management is not cool. I found myself integrating easily with the people as they were lovely. Management depending on where you find yourself within the organization is lovely but do but not everywhere. overall my experience w

Salary must improve

Everything feels great except the salary so they must sort it out and team is very good but management doesn't recognize the non managerial staff especially food and beverage

productive

A typical work day starts of quiet which at any given time can become busy. Working at the Westin requires motivation, energy and zest. It teaches one to deal with the curve balls of life as every day comes with new challenges.

excellent work environment

I have really enjoyed my time working at Protea Hotel by Marriott Cape town North Wharf, the work environment is excellent however I feel that it is time for me to take a different route outside of hospitality. As is the case with all jobs there are ups and downs, ups being that I get to meet and acquire new guests everyday and no two days are ever the same, downs being the shifts - you never get to see your family. I am very family orientated so I am looking for something that only requires me to work weekdays and maybe alternate Saturdays.

Pros

Free lunch daily

Cons

long hours and shifts

Great place to work!

Alway a great vibe at work! Learned allot ! Great management always supportive and give the best service! Hardest part of the job is to keep all the customers happy at the same time when it's busy but you as you learn , you learn how to manage it and it later becomes a challenge for yourself and that is what you work for to better yourself! The most enjoyable part of the job was the people you work with! They become your family and some your best friends!
