If you are an islnder then this job is for you. House keeping is majority Tongans and Samoans. Management is really good, just be honest. Rotating rosters, so flexibility is a must. Cheap parking ad you get a free meal,but the meal isn't the greatest. But for a student or visa worker I would recommend.
Free lunches cheap parking
Too many Islanders that gossip.

I would like to say good place to work with but no recognition for whatever good things you done for the company. They heavily rely on the guest comments. If guests mention your name then you are the best. Otherwise u are nothing for them even though you done a lot for the company.
Great experience, worked with some friendly colleagues. Throughout the 3 months of being there, I did learn so much about the front office position and I feel it is a job I truly love it was just unfortunate that I could not get along with everyone there.
lack of training
Friendly people to work with and you can learn a lot from other colleagues. Has a variety of different Ethnic backgrounds. Hardest part of my job is not getting the support to progress to the next level in the required field that I am currently working in and the most enjoyable part of my job is that I get to do what I love to do.
Free lunch, discount parking, free laundering of uniforms
Long hours, Minimum Wage
I would recommend this place to anyone to go and eat food open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. the workplace culture was a good environment to work in.

Establish initial contact with customer at file turnover with excellent customer service skills
Every day was a new challenge, no two day were the same. I was able to put my extreme customer service into play and reaped the benefits of that. That team was the best bunch of people I have ever had the privilege to work with. The 12 to 14 hour days were a bit much at times. The people and the comradeship were the things that I will remember. Thank you CP/ Park Royal.
Meeting many different people from all cultures
Long hours due to staff not coming in or calling "sick".
Crowne Plaza Auckland is mainly a business hotel, with the leisure groups promenant in peak season meaning a persistent minimum occupancy of 80% all year. It is a vert fast pace high intensity job to coordinate group accommodation bookings with many different aspects and characters juggle. As it is only one person to handle the emails, calls, amendments etc it is very important to keep note and to make lists in order to stay on top. It is also important to liaise with almost every department within the hotel as the groups definitely will affect their sectors - maintaining good relationships with each department is very important. Crowne Plaza auckland was great to strengthen my experience within the hotel sector and to give extra knowledge on the accommodation side of hospitality.
Complimentary meal per shift and dry cleaned uniforms
meeting different people everyday, most enjoyable part is when we have famous people staying at the hotel the management were very professional in all aspect get along well with my co-workers.
company provide free lunches and breakfast
Good place to work and ideal company. Learned quite a bit about the hospitality industry in NZ and the type of guests that once can expect. Multi cultural work place, with people coming from around the world and working.
very freestyle organisation culture and had pressure to improve team and yourself, Bad training program, doesn't have training procedure. learnt from junior who only worked for 4~5months. If you have lots of experience and get used to hospitality life, then should be aright but not recommended for junior, not many chance to promote.
