Love hate relationship

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Crown is like a toxic relationship. You have this love hate relationship. But look overall, I wouldn't want anything different. I worked for 4 years moving through different levels of the Guest Service team within Metropol. You name it, I almost saw everything. Metropol was a super busy and stressful at times hotel. Staff turnover is huge but not a bad thing. However this did effect the team being short staffed many of the times but we made it work.When I was a bell staff member, we had the most casual staff come through. Crown only hires the best and you can tell but now and again a bad one slipped through. Same with management, overall they were allllll amazing but some supervisors didn't deserve their job.Crown looks after their staff very well. You get free meals daily at the canteen (after a year it feels the same but hey its free). They launder everything. You get a huge locker. There is a staff only Gym. Discounts at everything within the Crown company and many other offers from 3rd party companies like insurance, car finance, etc. One service I would suggest is joining the Crown union. Only because you never know when working in such a big business and their Union is amazing.Overall expect to be pushed to your limits. I started at Crown when I was 19 and it really made me into who I am now. I resigned from Crown 2 years ago and would love to one day return.

Pros

high pay, flexible hours, free food and services

Cons

the pressure

Great place to work

Great place to start your career. They really push for younger employees to apply for senior positions. Receive two meals a day in the staff restaurant included in your salary. Uniforms are laundered and pressed for you. Have a staff convenience shop a staff discount store. Gymnasium which is cheap.

Pros

Salary

Cons

Shift work

I’m a former employee- all management in those days were not approachable, very demanding,

Stressful environment, starving for a 5 star experience with minimum offer for staff , contractors were treated like secondary employees , privilege was always given to employees who are directly employed by hotel

Rewarding work experience

This is a position to not only become a professional , but you can learn new skills , up skill with courses , work different shifts to fit different lifestyles , it’s progressive challenging and providing a 5 star experience for guests is very rewarding. The nature of the work is varied and never boring.

Productive and fun work place

At the first day of my job, I got to learn so many things for ex; some chemicals that I did not know at my previous jobs for cleaning. The staff management and availability of the adequate cleaning equipment is very impressive. All the staffs whether senior or junior , all are very friendly and supportive. I did not find any of the task tough.

Pros

Free Lunch

Cons

not any

Casino

Great company to work for however an industry that requires someone who is available 24:7 for shift work. Being on your feet for over 10 hours as operating your own section in each department.

What you'd expect

Worked in production. Fresh ingredients precut and packaged. Sauces made by internal department. As organised as can be. You can spend a lot of time just standing around though, waiting for functions to commence.

Pros

Free meals, not stressful, time to network

Cons

Can be boring, no overtime, can be repetitive

Productive company with great culture

The bosses are quite nice. Spend more time in communications would be needed to work with people in the Crown group. The overall quality of the people who work there is quite high and proficient.

No work/life balance

Say goodbye to your work/life balance and your weekends! Terrific pay to deal with rude customers and at times hopeless managers at all hours of the day. Cherish the single weekend a month you get off if you’re full time...you’ll almost be guaranteed to work every weekend if you’re part time.
