Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, NC – June 26, 2017
A typical day at work consist of greeting customers, checking guest into the hotel, processing payment. I learned that you meet people from all walks of life. Management consist of making sure tasks are run smoothly as well as paying attention to prevent overbooking. The workplace culture is friendly with smiles assuring that guest enjoy their stay. I cant say that their is a hard part of the job. The most enjoyable part is seeing people happy knowing that I did my job for the day.
Occupational Therapist (Current Employee) – West Springfield, MA – October 3, 2015
Overall good company. I worked here Per diem and provided OT services to clients in rehabilitation /skilled nursing facility setting. Friendly atmosphere and clean. My schedule was very flexible. I worked on activities of daily living and therapeutic exercises with clients. The best part of the job was being able to help people regain skills necessary to complete meaningful activities when they return home. I enjoyed the clients and felt that I was making a difference.
Laundry Attendant (Current Employee) – Lake George, NY – March 3, 2015
the hotel is very nice. the people are great. I'm just looking for something different to do. I would like to stay working but they expect one person to do all the laundry of a 96 room facility with no help. its way more than one person should do. I also gave notice and they didn't offer me anything to get me to stay. At this point, its not the money its the hard ships on the body of one person.
A well organized establishment, resident and employee friendly.
Certified Nurses Assistant (Current Employee) – West Springfield , MA – March 2, 2015
Working on the rehab unit is very fast-paced. I have learned how to strategize my ability to maintain the needs of the residents in a timely manner according to the environment. I find the management to be very fair and unbiased. My experience with the co-workers is that of a good one; We all work together as a team to complete the daily tasks given. The most difficult part of the job, I would say, is dealing with the passing of residents. However, the most enjoyable part of the job is making their stay as comfortable as possible and making sure they always have a smile on their face.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Augusta, GA – December 3, 2014
A typical day at the Wingate is timely. Your on a time schedule for each and every room. I learned different techniques for cleaning and decorating. Management at that time over the Housekeeping dept. wasn't the best but it never affected my job and work ethic. I had nice co-workers, I enjoyed them. The hardest part of the job at times was trying to clean 12 to 20 room in a timely manner before 3:00 p.m. while still having to satisfy guests needs. The most enjoyable part of the job was the lunch breaks because you were able to sit down.
breaks, and tips
tiring due to physical output and cutting of hours
