Food and Beverage Assistant (Former Employee) - Hyatt Centric The Liberties Dublin
I worked for this company at their Hyatt Centric hotel in Dublin for its first 6 weeks after opening. Working in the bar/restaurant, shifts felt like they were never-ending, and management bullied their staff. To top it all off, they will sack you after bullying you for weeks and weeks on end, blaming it on your "unsatisfactory performance". Would not recommend at all.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything

Staff Member (Former Employee) - Athlone, County Westmeath
Promotes a culture of favouritism and bullying. Management form friendships with select staff and have them watch other staff while they are not there and report back. No progression or positive reinforcement only negative. Toxic atmosphere headed by managers who would totally ignore you all day only speaking to the favourite staff members. No appreciation for staff and just about pay minimum wage, looking for an increase requires begging for months and even telhen they throw you a few cents and expect you to be grateful. Rosters are done to prioritise the favourite staff members while the rest are left to work every single weekend.
Pros
The location and view
Cons
The managment and favouritism

Manager (Former Employee) - Athlone, County Westmeath
The job was sold to me so enthusiastically I was so excited for the potential of the role. The reality is completely different. Place zero trust in staff, offer little to no flexibility. You are watched like a hawk. The time I spent working there knocked my confidence in every way. If you are hoping to further your career in hospitality run dont walk away from this hotel.

It's a lovely family run business and a great hotel but cannot recommend as somewhere good to work.
Pros
Free gym
Cons
Terrible lunch food, wages, backwards management
