Expected to work multiple jobs, and more times are not part of your job. Since got asked by different people to do different jobs on top of your supposed job. Too many management staffs, so there are sometimes different directions were given. A handful of times were not able to have the required 30 minutes break, since was overwhelmed with the job that was given. Staffs are paid the same wage all day of the week even though working on weekends. Kitchen staffs sometimes even had to finish later than what is rostered and not paid the extra time.
The staffs are actually lovely people, and very nice to work with.
working as a chef build patients skill in me and its challenging to finish the work in time help to learn time management. i like to take challenges and talking with customers make the work more joyful.
38 to 40 hours
Working at the Langham my experience wasn't as good as I anticipated.The reason for this is they were meant to shut down this year, but since then a new management team has been introduced and there have been lots of internal fights within the organisation which ultimately affects every facet of the hotel, including Banquets, where I worked. The work life balance was not ideal as we were rarely given breaks even though working for longer than 6 hours, the staff were all on visas as well all from Asian countries so there was a communication barrier there as well. However in saying that, I did gain many valuable skills in relation to customer service, organisation of stock, and setting up rooms for functions.
Seems like a nice place to work with at first. Found out after all that its all politics. They say its nice place to grow your career but they wont allow you to move to other department or level up in your career if they dont want to.
Communication is pathetic. HR always claim to be improving things but just say what you want to hear to make you happy but nothing improves. Working conditions need improvement. Overtime needs to be paid. Wages are low. Promotions are rare. No annual review. It's more about who you know than your skill and technique which is ridiculous. Work you like crazy but don't wanna pay you for extra hours. You'd expect better from a renowned international hotel. Management has their head up their bum.
made some friends
Hours, not being paid correctly, not being paid overtime, management is pathetic
Great place to work, everyone is friendly & gets on well. Social place to work, don't be surprised if you don't end up paying for a drink on a night out! Negatives Job security was an issue as they stopped employing people on long term contracts (that may be different now) Staff food is revolting & you have to pay for it! Pay is pretty low compared to their competitors.
banquets set up, running a functions and complain headlining every day learned new set up and dealing with a different type of client managing the day roster staff at during events, and training communicate communicate communicate handling aggressive client team work
the langham melbourne is the best employer for me to work with, i feel very lucky to get lots of exp here. good management, learn lots of knowledge, unfortunately my visa condition (student visa) it require me to get sponsorhip and i couldnt get it from Langham hotel melbourne due to it circumtances.
Beautiful work place, a typical 8hour shifts with a variety of beauty treatments. Just like everywhere else management could be a bit more empathetic and the hotel could be a bit more organised however with all the hotel perks and wonderful team (in all departments) it all makes up for all the cons. Besides being far from where I live there also is no rotation for the weekend, weekend work every weekend is a must. These are a couple main reasons why I couldn't stay on board, I am a solo mum and have to leave home at 7am and arrive back home at 730pm the lastest.
Management aren't so empathetic
