A typical day at work is encoding, checking the cheques if the payment have no errors and filing files to their latest date. The management there have a good working environment.

1. Good company to be with2. They give chance of regularization and promotions fair to everyone3.the only company I work for almost 8 years.

Very good brand and company itselfIf it weren't the pandemic I'll be willing to work there until my retirement age.Basically Best western brands company is a good brand it is we're individuals don't just go to work but manage to learn more what is hospitality is about since the standards of the company are being studied, practice , revise and improve in a consistent manner..

Pros

1. Good trainings 2. Service oriented management 3. High class hotel operation standard

Below minimum for 30 days training

Work experience are great, however,The management doesn't care about the safety of their employees. Plus no service charge provided, no allowances, like if you are night shift they will not provide the additional transportation allowance (as we all know the rate of transportation during night shift is higher than regular day shift), they provide free meal at lunch time.minimum salary for all employees(except managers) and below minimum for 30 days training.

Pros

Free lunch

Proactive experience as Pre-opening Team

I'm glad that I have been part of the Pre-opening Team of Best Western Plus Ivy wall Resorts-Panglao. As IT Supervisor, I have learned not only technical works but also, to be more proactive in terms of budgeting, time management and administrative works.

Work life balance, real concern to employees, culture of excellence and continuous improvement

I usually start my day reading my emails then attend to my scheduled activities such as meeting, hearings, coordination with properties and project discussion. I learned that my job is a thankless job and I play a critical role in employees' experience and impact in the organization. I am pleased to be part of the organization with an open door policy where you can go directly to the director or the owner for concerns. The hardest part of my job are employees who always complains but never take part in creating solutions. On the other hand, what I enjoy the most is planning and implementing corporate programs, benefits and events.

Feels like I am just working at home.

The management, especially the General Manager is the most kind that I know of. As long as you are working according to your responsibilities, he allows any favors may it be for your family, personal development, etc. I just resigned because of the long hours in commuting to and from work.

Productive and fun work place with swimming pool and near the boracay beach

I used to work as a buffet server in Boracay Philippines for 3 months wherein I was assigned to refill the food station and keeping it clean and look appetizing. And then they put me to omelet station and bar mixing and doing different beverages. I also got a chance to communicate well with the guest and establish comfort while working.
