Disaster

Management in the Calibre international it’s not professional at all. Once they declined my booking out of nowhere, when I went there and asked them for a reason they said that was a someone else mistake(?) I called them in the morning 2h before my shift supposed to start (emergency call supposed to be 1,5 before your shift) so as I said I did that and they complained and kick me out. They blocked me on the app, I cannot contact them. I just want to add that the main boss in the hotel liked me and was very happy with me working there. I always did my work well without any problems. I can say that I was hard worker. If yo looking for agency in the London do not go there these people will just treat you as a trust.

A nice place to start

Calibre is a good place to start if you have just arrived in the UK and have no previous experience. However, you will be sent each day to a different place and for not many hours per day and, since they only pay the minimum wage, you will not get a lot at the end of the week.

It was a very disorganized agency

A typical day to work was somehow bad and full of stress. Managers used to scream at you and humiliate you in some places. The hardest part of the job was that you were booked for an 6 hour shift and than they required you to stay another 6-7 hours above the program.

Pros

Lunches, met new people

Cons

Long hours, Poor management

Friendly and helping staff

It was a good environment, despite the long hours at work. Learned to cope with colleagues and respect their opinions. Most enjoyable part of the job was when salary was received :D

Very productive workplace

Room service attendants in hotels of all sizes deliver food, drinks, silverware and condiments to guest rooms to fulfill guest orders. The room service attendant wheels the tray into the guest room with the guest's approval, sets up the table, opens platters and identifies each portion. The attendant may check back later to remove the tray/trolley. Depending upon the size of the hotel, room service attendants also may be responsible for taking guest orders by phone. These servers must be familiar with the hotel menu to answer any guest questions, such as those concerning food allergies. Room service attendants also may deliver packages that arrive for a guest and take care of guests' dry cleaning orders. When they are not delivering items to guest rooms, room service attendants may be responsible for stocking supplies for orders.

Pros

Free meal, different activties

Cons

Long hours
