    Pros

    Plenty of hours given during holidays

    Cons

    Do not listen to what days you can’t do as a part time employee. Take money off you for breaks even when not taken. Regularly expected to work over the rostered hours often up to 16 hour shifts

    Great Experience

    Pros

    I worked at the Galway Bay Hotel for two years. There is a great atmosphere while working in the hotel and the team provide support in every task you are assigned. I got to improve my communication skills and organisation skills while working here and developed the skills of thinking quickly on my feet and time management.

    Cons

    The only real con is that shifts can be long but this does come with the hospitality industries. The people around you keep you motivated and help you get through.

    Pros

    Sociable, fast paced and entertaining

    Cons

    Complete lack of respect for employees. Constantly understaffed despite reminders that we need staff. Rota comes out less than 12 hours before shifts start so you couldn't make any plans. Expected to work over 4 hours after your shift ends. Lack of communication between departments and staff. HR do not listen to complaints about staffing. breaks were rare and never guaranteed but still taken out of pay. food was also taken regardless of whether ate or not.
