Staff get treated so badly ! Unfairness is very common in workplace, managers have their favorites and if your not one of them watch out ! Unhealthy work/home balance and they don't care, mangers come in make a mess and leave it expecting you to clean it up daily!!

Hospitality is Hospitality, it has it pro's and Con's. The amount of different characters you meet along the way is very interesting & intertaining but unfortunately you do not have a social life as your shifts are all over the place plus weekends are a must because thats where the money is.
long hours not suited to family life, minimal operational support, Woolworths input made it difficult to run a hotel as a hotel felt more like a constant "compliance" job minimal availability for front of house hours and being a venue manager of a hotel
Bar Attendant (Current Employee) – Penrith NSW – 17 June 2016
My role as a bar attendant involves a heavy customer service position that allows me to interact with a variety of different people. I deal with many situations from problem solving to complaints handling. I work well within a team environment as well as individually. I enjoy the variety of people I am able to meet and the fast paced nature of the job.
Bartender (Former Employee) – Dunsborough – 7 April 2016
Get to work 10 minutes before every shift. Check the roster for what job you have been assigned. Clock in and say hello to management and staff to make sure they know you are here, and then go about your business. Only hard part about the job is when there is "difficult" customers. But the co-workers are what makes the experience enjoyable personally. Management are normally easy going when they are not stressed, and can normally always assist you with any enquirers, and being new to the team I had many. Overall a good venue to start working with. It has got me a foothold in the industry in which I plan to take my experience further.
Class 2 Waitress (Current Employee) – Perth WA – 1 April 2016
The work is hard and long, the managers are under experienced and need training. The job requires strong and motivated people. A lot is expected of you, and managers are not very motivational or helpful. Chefs are always angry, and more often than not people are not happy being at work.
I loved working for this company, I believe I gave more than 100% effort into the workplace, I was there almost everyday and I treated it like it was my second home. My typical day at work would consist of opening operations, management of staff and their duties, reconciliations during the day, saving hours on labour. The hardest part of that job was at the end, I was told I shouldn't try and strive above what I am capable of via another manager. It made it hard for me to feel a part of a team as I was new to it. The most enjoyable part was the customers, my job there was to ensure they had a pleasant experience and it was my priority to do so.
Free lunches, in-house competitions, incentives for upselling.
Springfield Tavern (Former Employee) – Brisbane, QLD – 23 October 2015
was ok to work for, was easy and fun at times, management could of been a bit more encouraging! overall was good. a typical day would be bit full on at times. I learned that working for this company that you needed to work hard to get to where you wanted to be rewarded with great hours. there was no hard part of the job that I can recall however I was a hard worker.
I enjoy the day to day and personal contact with clients
Sales Attendant Bottle Shop Drive Thru (Current Employee) – Adelaide, SA – 8 October 2015
I love the atmosphere of the BWS drive thru, enjoy & get along well with both management & fellow co-workers. We know when its time to chat and when its time to get on with the jobs. I also love the daily contact with customers & getting to know the regulars, and knowing what their order is.. I have only been working in the current bottle shop as a fill in for the past 4mths, and I would love to make it a more permanent position. I am also learning so much about wines which i never knew before. I find that each shift i always learn something new. Management are always friendly showing me knew things all the time and are always available for any questions I may have. I think the hardest part of the job for me is the learning of how the computer is set up and works, but with the help of co-workers and managers I am getting use to it. I find just about every part of the job enjoyable
Working with a great team
The weather, as its a outside drive thru, but i soon adapt
Corporate Receptionist/Deputy Office Manager (Former Employee) – Bowen Hills and Bulimba – 1 October 2015
As part of the original company Austotel in the late 1980's I was employed as a Front Office Hotel Receptionist and PA to the hotel manager within weeks of arriving from England.
Front office reception included organisation of travel and accommodation for guests and management, preparation of their respective accounts and reconciliation of debtors and payments. I also supported the duty managers in the nightly balance of monies and safe holdings. Reconciliation of monies and accounts were the most enjoyable part of this job.
During my 18 years with the company I worked for 3 years within the payroll department as a payroll officer which entailed collation, extension and entry of hotel time sheets using the Micropay Payroll System.
With the merge and change of name to CUB (Fosters Group) I was transferred to the head office and managed the front office area with my co-worker.
ALH Group separated from CUB Fosters, I transferred to the sales team however ALH group asked for my return as their Front Office Manager/Deputy Office Manager.
I remained in this role for quite sometime however they relocated to far South Brisbane and after 3 years of travelling I longed for a job based in the City.
Wonderful friendly environment with free meals and achievement awards
Company diversified and owned by various groups meant an unsettled job security
