Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Alot of hard work, for minimum wage. Expectations are above normal. Everyone is out for themselves. Its a good stepping stone but its best not to get ur hopes up of friendships or team work. They dont acknowledge employees who work really hard to make it all run smoothly. Keep to yourself, do your work and ull be okay.

Very confused have no idea which way is up

Managers don't know which way is up. Stock is always out or late. Get pushed out the way while working so they can insult you. Broken equipment no effort to get it fixed and buy new stuff

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

It's fine and as a work place should be

Worked there and find no fault in the place as it hang all entire on one self if you know your work then you won't have a problem, if you a housekeeper then you need to know cleaning is of importants to your self and to other and benefit both, so knowing your cleaning and doing the job is important and vaccination aswell as it comes with cleanliness.

My overall about weatern province caterers is the mistreat of people, not paying the salary the people deserve, stressfull.

The management treat the staff so poorely that it's a strungle for a person to take a sick leave day and you sign warnings for asking about your salary.

The most enjoyable part of the job is that I could make residents smile including staff on a day to day basis

I would like to start a new career not because I don't love what I'm doing I have quite a passion for what I'm doing but I want to grow in life I want to grow in the hospitality industry so therefore I will search for something that meets my needs.

Well Presented Company With a Smell

Well managed company with a good reputation in general. In my many years in hospitality and catering, I have never felt so insecure in my job, getting rid of staff is shockingly easy, without any remorse. You have to fight for a decent salary, getting paid what you worth is a general practice. Growth opportunities are probably my highlight about WPC as there are transfer and promotion options.

Pros

Promotions, Reputable Company

Cons

Long Hours, Under Paid
