Good atmosphere, great team, high standard of training/experience, free on- shift food and fab benefits (dining, hotel stay, wellness facilities).

Pay not adequate to experience.

Casual 0h contract can be stressful at times, being called off work the night before. No set days, no set hours of work.

No room for progression and Favoritism in the workplace. Unsociable hours and a lot of managers not doing their actual job. Unless you are a manager then you are cared for if not then they do not bother.

A typical day of my job was setting up the coffee dock, managing it, serving customers and closing up. I also restocked it throughout the day.

I learned a lot of valuable communication skills as well as it improved my ability to work independently.


The management was nice and helpful whenever I had questions and everything was neatly organized.


The workplace culture was friendly and everyone seemed really interested in me. It was nice to be in and I felt like a real part of the team.


The hardest part of the job was to deal with really busy moments, fortunately I learned how to handle this and it also ended up being the most enjoyable part of the job.
Pros
Free meals, discounts at the restaurant, free coffee, loads of extra FOTA benefits
Cons
Long hours, a lot of standing

Excellent staff in Fota make working there a fun and easy place. Flexible hours give you a good work/life balance. There is opportunity to move to different departments within the Fota Collection.

Working in both the Christmas and Halloween experience, I have got my fair share of time in the facility. I find the management team to be unknown of their duties and the facilities to be unequipped. I would not recommend anyone to work at this Hotel for either event
Pros
there are none
Cons
Long hours, short breaks

Worked here for over a year and a half while I was in college. I was given so many opportunities to gain trust and earn responsibility, to learn and train, and to make friends. Everyone who works here is so lovely and helpful. I'd come back in a hearbeat, however, having finished college my career is heading away from hospitality! I will miss everyone in The Fota Collection.
Pros
Free Lunches, Free Wildlife Park, Hotel Discounts
