    Good entry level jobs, no work-life balance for management

    Pros

    Job Security, training, multinational organisation, good SOPs and brand standards, great team thanks to the efficient recruitment process. Good opportunities to progress and transfers are possible when relocating.

    Cons

    For a salaried employee in a management position overtime or extra days are not paid, so you can end up working 12-16 hour shifts adding up to 70-80 hours a week, and still being paid for 40. Unpaid sleepovers in the hotel are required for duty managers (which consists of FOH departmental heads), at least once, but sometimes 2-3 times a week. All the above makes work-life balance nonexistent.
