Toxic environment

no structure and no leadership. Company needs to learn a lot before they can invest in their employees.Not for the faint hearted. You need to be strong and take the heat even if it isnt your fault.

Great company - will return tomorrow

This is a great company to work for. I have received great training and opportunities from them while working there and will return tomorrow if I had the opportunity. Local systems and owners my slightly skew this experience, depending on your property/location.

Pros

International company, great perks, incentives, medical aid, provident fund and staff meals

Cons

Stressfull but satisfying

Is very demanding

Management doesn't care much of their staff. The salary is to little for all the work one person work. Is one of the busiest hotel. But they don't have enough staff

Good company

It's a good place to work to gain experience in the hotel industry the only thing is growth potential is limited. It has its challenges and perks like any hospitality job though what great is that being a five star you get to rub shoulders with high profile clients and serve with excellence for their calibre

Bad working environment

The working environment at Sheraton hotel is not conjusive. The employees there are less dissatisfied and forever complaining regarding the workload, absurd working hours and less renumeration

Pros

Good for reference purposes since it is a 5 star hotel

Cons

Not so great to work at

No growth and managers are bossy not leaders.

I'm thankful that Sheraton Pretoria let me volunteer, but again I'm highly disappointing how the managers treat us there, they are too arrogant and are not appreciative. I'd never even recommend anyone to work at Sheraton Pretoria Hotel.

Has potential to be top hotel in RSA.

Not enough resources to achieve set goals and standards. Communication is one way only from top down, employees not empowered to make decision or come up with their own solutions to their challenges.
