I thoroughly enjoyed working at Holiday Inn, Auckland Airport, there were challenges that I had to face but I did get amazing help and the team was more than welcoming and helpful. We did have minor problems from time to time but we were all professional and resolved the issues immediately and effectively. I would recommend working there if you are looking for a safe and friendly environment.

This is not a good place to work and they expect to much for minimal pay. Also if you have an opinion then it is to be kept to yourself and you can't expect them to care about your obligations outside of the job.
Pros
Met cool people
Cons
Bosses'

It was a real good time I have ever spend in my life in Holiday inn Rotorua. I have started my career from Housekeeping (room attendant). I have got promoted with in the couple of months as an Housekeeping Team leader and again promoted for HSK supervisor. Every one gets free lunch/dinner during the shift which was awesome. I really enjoyed my 2 years 7 months while working there.
Thank you very much for entire team of Holiday Inn Rotorua.
Pros
Good working environment and good pay. Supportive.

Its a good place to learn all aspects of the hotel as you closely interact with each department. You also get the opportunity to learn all job roles as you have to multi task most of the time.

Tight nit team but never enough rewards for the teams satisfaction. They have a great and welcoming sense of humour and are always friendly. You would have to remain focus and always learn from your mistakes before their team will eat you up alive.

The hotel is a good place to work as everyday is different and like any other jobs they have both good and bad days but to me the good far out weighed the bad you were always moving around you got to learn how to prepare the food how to cook some of the dishes that were put out on the buffet and the different types of food such as Indian Chinese Mexican and many more
Pros
Discount on dinner for you and up to 15 others plus discount on rooms in the hotel if you stayed
Cons
Long hours split shifts

The porter side was very demanding with a lot of the time with very outlandish requests from guests and trying my best to not upset them at their conquest for their ending nest or while they would rest. The job was very easy and very fun when it came to driving the more high-priced cars eg BMW's that many customers enjoyed purchasing.

The housekeeping was very funny and I gained a new respect for the women whom clean the rooms because of the amount of strange things that you would see. Definately not a job for someone of the likes of me. But it was very educational in a sense that something as simple as making a bed was very complexed and very detailed right down to the positioning of pillows.


But the hardest thing was to keep people confidentially when in fact the wife or husband is standing outside the door listening to the cheating. Not something that I enjoyed too much because I was often confronted and asked to knock on the door as a porter and housekeeper very offending and very demanding at times. Keeping me on my toes nevertheless but very mean at the same time.
Pros
Lunch was amazing
Cons
confrontational individuals in this hotel.
