Unsociable hours
Porter (Former Employee) –  Tullamore, County Offaly18 July 2019
Like most restaurant / hotel workers, its long hours, cheap labour and mundane work, it handy for college students maybe but for most people it's a place just to fill while looking for something else
Pros
A reference to use in later jobs
Cons
Long unsociable hours

Workplace or Machine
Food and Beverage Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Tullamore, County Offaly24 August 2018
The bridge house hotel is a fine-tuned machine of a workplace. With over 200 active staff on the roster, it's hard to be seen as anything but a number. In some departments, staff turnover can be high, and when someone leaves, they're replaced, and often forgotten about. That's just the way it is.

The hours can be long. You're expected to often work split shifts, ultimately taking up your entire day, at minimum wage for most. When you're off, you're expected to be on call in case you're needed.

Staff generally all get along pretty well.
Pros
Nice people
Cons
Long hours

Bad management
Waiter, Bartender (Former Employee) –  Tullamore, County Offaly1 February 2017
a typical day at work can be stressful as the management made us employees feel like robots and I have seen good people getting fired out of there for calling in sick. Management is the main problem, they do not know what they are doing and they talk to some emplyees like theyre children
Cons
You shouldnt go by the roster in there because you will be asked to work more and more hours

Bridge House Hotel
Night Porter/ Manager (Former Employee) –  Tullamore, Offaly Republic of Ireland23 December 2014
Very busy Hotel with three restaurants, two bars and night club, dealing with all types of individuals, as would be required in a 5 star hotel, with wedding parties averaging three per week.
The hardest part I found was dealing with intoxicated people but one takes the good with the bad.
The enjoyable part of my job was getting to meet people from all walks of life, from CEO's to the ordinary person having a break.

Very nice place to work
Waitress (Former Employee) –  Tullamore, OY19 September 2014
Come in at 9am and set up.. all the tables have to have sauces and salt and pepper on them. set up cutlery this all has to be polished. put out jigs of fresh milk. bowls of sugar has to be put out also. 10am doors open. my duties include keeping tables clear and customers happy. getting desserts, serving tea/coffee. on the till, handling money.
I learned a lot from working there it was my first job. I learned time keeping and how to deal with customers in a patience and happy manor.
My co-workers were so lovely to work with, so helpful and I got on well with everybody.
The place was well run
the hardest part of the job was keeping tables clear when it was extremely busy but I managed and got the job done.
I loved working there loved talking to the customers and the staff and really just enjoyed everyday.
Pros
Getting to know people
Cons
There was none
