    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent pay, commissions, good colleagues, free lunches, destination rates, nice properties, fun to meet people from all over the world.

    Cons

    Management is aloof, incompetent and distant. Very much an us and them culture. HR is confrontational and bumbling. Most "managers" are actually interns still in college who are under contract and run departments with zero work experience. Employees are very disposable, very high turnaround , very high burnout. Your hours are routinely cut due to managers getting a bonus for coming in under budget for work hours . Meaning you lose money. You will be dealing with complaints of angry , rude and insulting "budget" guests CONSTANTLY during your 8 hour shift and held directly accountable to resolve their issues however reasonable or unreasonable. This place is a meat grinder for workers. Internal theft is rampant and you WILL have confrontations with the homeless who frequently wander the property. You also will be asked to complete several different tasks relating to housekeeping, luggage transportation and parking cars regardless of your job title .
