Positive Experience

Overall the company has a good culture and I enjoyed my time there. One criticism is that management needs to get more involved in the oversight of day to day events. They are too disconnected from the staff.

Is nice working there

I enjoy working there. But is very challenging. You must be willing to work hours without break. It doesn't not offer staff transport. The team is excellent.

Decent and professional.

A typical day at work would be serving the guests, entering the lounge. Making them feel at home, afterall you are the host. Making sure that they are served with the food and beverage as reequested. Giving the guests on arrival, that lounge vibe.

Pros

Breakfast in the canteen.

Cons

Long hours

Fun workplace

It was nice working at Protea hotel because it came with a lot of accommodation experience and how to deal with different attitudes so I was well equipped and I was volunteering I was not paid but the experience was the same as being paid. If it was not for the experience that I got without being paid I would not know how to handle pressure and still excel.

Cons

Reasonable hours
