Bad work environment despite many good colleagues

It's a difficult job at times but it can also be very rewarding. If you're a team player who prides themselves on quality you’ll do well.The people are overall great to work with. However the immediate manager and supervisors are a clique that create a bad work environment. Training is minimal. They provide little to no constructive feedback and when they do it is extremely vague, for example;Employee: Why am I better at this than my team mate?Supervisor: You just are.If the housekeeping department was fairly managed then I'd definitely recommend it, but unfortunately it is run by the adult equivalent of the "popular kids" and lacks professionalism and at times a blatant disregard to employment law.

Pros

Decent wage Discount on food Free gym membership

Cons

Poor communication Cliquey manager and supervisors Physically demanding

I started at Cofton as a Housekeeping supervisor and have progressed to the Housekeeping manager.

I enjoy the fast pace of Cofton. My job offers new challenges which I love as it make everyday different. I work with a great team of people. I enjoy the camaraderie which adds to the satisfaction of delivering a great service. I feel valued and appreciated by the company for the work I do. The directors are hands on and always willing to give direction and support when needed or asked for.

Pros

Great salary, health plan, friends and family discount for holiday, I have use of the pool, gym and onsite facilities. Company Perkbox giving lots of discounts and rewards, Cofton always throws the most fantastic Christmas party!

Cons

Hospitality is demanding, It is hard work, long hours, especially at weekends and holiday periods.

Good first job

Good first job, but can be generally bad, management were not the best, you didn’t feel appreciated by any members of staff even managers, the pay was absolutely horrendous, being on minimum wage during my two years working, a stressful environment during busy times. Was not given enough hours, very seasonal work.

Pros

Some friendly staff

Cons

Pay, no loyalty to staff

No loyalty to staff,minimum wage.

The atmosphere of the business is just about making money and there is minimal loyalty to their staff. Very poor Director staff relationship. Not enough staff in the summer. No recognition when you have done a good job. And only a telling off when you made a mistake. The hours are too long and you are seriously underpaid.

Pros

Nice staff freindly people to work with

Cons

Owners of company only care about making money and not their staff

Fun workplace

You are able to engage with colleagues and customers in a thriving workplace which boasts a positive environment. You are able to sample a selection of the night life in evening shifts due to the evening entertainment and variety of colorful customers that choose to holiday inn this leisure park. However your break time may be restricted at peak evening times due to a lack of staff on the shift with you that can induce mild stress and a rise in pay is promised however is forgotten of and remain on low pay. On the other hand there is a selection of discounted food available for staff during break with free wifi.

Pros

free access to leisure activities;gym & pool

Cons

long and unsocialable hours during peak holiday season

Fun community work force

I started one summer in the kitchen and havnt looked back. I've been to other places for trials ect noware is quite like working here great people hard work ethic and more fun than stress full days. Exsperianced head chef who has the time for individuals. And the best part everything is made fresh and from scratch. We get to Butcher make sauces,come up with our own recipes for the menu and enter the Cofton food comp you'll be surprised how much work goes into the food and making it great for our guests.

Pros

Work with great people. Free use of leisure facility's

Cons

Have to use the kettle for coffie 😢 unsociable hours

Fun and Professional

Working at Cofton was very enjoyable, a great team of staff made the experience worthwhile. In my time here I learned more than I thought I would about Bar Serving and working in hospitality. During winter months when business was slower, my supervisor trained me in the wider duties of the complex. I felt as if I had positively progressed as an employee and as a person.

Pros

Friendly atmosphere

Cons

Very long hours, not enough staff in summer
