Some people were nice to work with.

The hotel needs all new management.. accommodation assistants and public area cleaners need more respect and wages needs to increase. The work that gets done on a daily basis they deserve more money.

Pros

Easy to travel to.

Cons

Terrible wage's

Run away

Worst company ever. Run away from Dalata group. All the management from top to lower are rude and they don’t care about the staff. You are just numbers for them. Don’t waste your time!

Company take advantage of staff

If you’re good at your job you will get to do the managers job for minimum wage and no chance of progression. Tips are very low and some managers on much higher pay take an equal cut each night. No shift rotation although this was promised multiple times so you will either work all morning shifts or get all night shifts which means no work like balance. Also worked full time but was told all contracts were 0 hour contracts but later found out others in the same position had full time contracts.

Pros

Staff meals

Cons

Everything else

Don't do it unless you are stuck for cash

Very toxic HR and micro-managers. You will be expected to perform like it's your dream job, but you will be paid cents with no future prospects. The company try to seem nice with laughable "benefits" and "training" but really it's an awful place to work. I worked with senior staff that had been there for 10 years plus with no progression even though they were fabulous at their jobs. It's honestly sad, if this company looked after their staff better maybe there wouldn't be such a turn over. Regardless, avoid at all costs, they will exploit you as much as they can hahahaha.

Pros

Staff members were nice

Cons

Almost everything else

lots of things to do but a little too overwhelming

My typical day of work would be to go in and check the lists from the cleaners, and see when there finish cleaning so I can assist on there cleaning and to help out with the cleaning to make sure it is all clean for the next customer. The most enjoyable thing about the job was meeting new people and connecting with the staff and clients.

Pros

good breakfast food, and lunches that's free

Cons

lifting heavy mattress

Terrible

Worked here for approx 1 year. Almost no work life balance. Expected to work extra hours without lieu time or overtime. General manager has been there too long and is not open to new things, micro manages all managers and doesn't appreciate anything. HR was poor and badly managed. Everything was last minute. I wouldn't recommend anyone to work here at any level.

Pros

Free Gym

Cons

See above

Fun working environment and lovely staff

It was nice dealing with people from various countries and from different culture & tradition, I enjoyed my time and getting interact with them, solving their problems while working at the Front desk in the Hotel. Staff is also lovely in Maldron, they are fun loving and work as team, sometimes we have stressful days but we work together to make things work and provide the best customer service and we make sure that our guest also feel that they are getting looked after so we can welcome them back again.
