amazing living accommodation for staff , amazing scenic views , gorgeous castle , top food , good experience , good staff training , good equipment , good working hours , salary lot lower than expected .
Horrible to work ofr. the team members and other staff are the only perk, all team members so nice and friendly. Terrible work life balance, Managers are not in agreement or on good terms. Managing skills poor and all managers are very clickish. Very little to do in its location also two pubs in town and no other activities. Staff accomodation is mediocre, nice building but facilities and the monitering of them is not ideal. large garthering of friends not allowed. not very fair hard to relax in your own home. rent is also expensive for what you get. Staff lunches unhealthy and no options or flexablity for vegeterians or gluten free staff members. Also sexist, no girls bar tend there. only males unless theyre unavailable.
Working at Ashford was very different, as the standards they have for cleaning are very high. Although they give less rooms in general to each chambermaid, these rooms still take a lot to actually clean them, and it was still quite a stressful job.
Hard manual labour
For those that see their career in hospitality it's best place to work, lots of career progression opportunities. Great benefits including uniforms, food during the shift, lots of discounts for hotel products also holidays, possibility to relocate to another RCH Hotel which Ashford Castle is a part of.
very good training,most of the staff are really friendly and helpful. The most enjoyable part was working here is the other staff. uniform were provided. it was required that you had a good knowledge of history for the castle and area, there were good training to help you with this.
You are expected to be fully dedicated to your role. It's a rural setting and most people work shift hours so can be demanding on the employee in terms of having a work, life balance.
free lunch and great training availible
short breaks and long days
I have moved to Ireland to work with this company and realized that the high expectations I had are not being filled. I like to live in Ireland and want to work in another environment and be happy in here.
low salary and small village
i personally couldn't say anything bad about my experience working with Ashford Castle or the Red Carnation group. the management are your friends while still conducting them selfs to the highest level expected of them, and the people in the kitchen, and front of house are like your best friends, and at every chance they all try and keep the atmosphere professional and calm but with jokes and funny moments galore as always will be in life. bacicaly what in trying to say is they are like a family and they dont even try to hard every one was easy to get along with and always there if you had a rough service or bad day
