A typical workday begins early at five o' clock in the morning. Throughout the morning I work with the busy breakfast buffet. The rest of my day consists of mice-en-place in the cold kitchen and sometimes preparing and serving banquets and events if there are any that day. During the afternoon I will prepare everything for the dinner buffet. The length of my workday can differ depending on how much work there is and if any of my colleagues need help. I usually finish work at six or seven o' clock.
The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting my wonderful colleagues every day and as a team serving great food. However there are difficult parts as well. I would say that the hardest part of my work is that the hours can get very long during busy seasons, and that I have not been offered the ability to grow and learn as much as I would like to.
I am however thankful for my time at Sharq. I have learned a great deal about taking charge of the food production, about the academic and economical part of being a chef and about working in very large scale productions since working for example large catering and in house-events. Lastly I have learned how to multitask and work at a high speed without feeling stressed.
The culture at the hotel is very good and socially it is easy to feel welcomed and comfortable. The management is good and stable, however I feel again that I through the management have been prohibited in my development as a chef.
Free housing, food and transport. Good social climate.

Butler (Former Employee) – Doha – September 9, 2016
I have learned a lot how to handle guests and their request, how to adapt to situation quickly and how to solve guest problems independently and efficiently.
It was a very pleasant experience overall, I certainly did learn a lot, however management team was not at its best when it comes to promoting their own staff, they preferred to hire people from the outside, which has lead to resignation of many people. On the other side, they were very supportive when it comes to learning and tutoring and being independent. Co-workers were very friendly and very much open for cooperation which made the job a lot easier.
working hours, free meals, acomodation, leave days
staff was very much divided by nationality and race
typical day at work is very good. i learned a lot about proper service, more details in food and beverage. the upper management is poor handled, there is a lot of employees who deserved to be acknowledge but the senior leaders only focus on themselves. Co-workers is awesome, they are the best team. hardest part of the job is having insufficient time for things to be done and lack of proper equipments. most enjoyable part of the job is when we create memories for our guest at the same time memories that we all cherish forever.
Every day is an opportunity to create a guest for life,Every day when I come to work, I see as an opportunity to create a special memory for our guest and members and to sell the facilities but to sell an experiencing -Every day, I have the opportunity to learn something new, as well as how to create unique and memorable experience for our guest. All of our multicultural team members have the passion for providing the Ritz Carlton legendary service - The management of the Hotel treat each Ladies and Gentlemen with integrity and respect, there is an equal opportunity to learn and grow with the company - The hardest part of the job some time is the location of the hotel but the hotels facilities are amazing and specially to work with the winning team is great, this can make us feel better and forget about the location - The most enjoyable is to be part of the Ritz Carlton family, love working with the team of hospitality professionals who have the passion for the people and who are always ready to do extra mile for the community
I loved that place form the first moment. A lot of passion, inspiration from leaders, the company had clear guidelines and standards from the beginning, very strong leadership and HR. A huge focus on employee satisfaction. I recommend it anytime.
A typical day at work. (a) I check and reply to my mails (b) conduct the morning briefing (c) attend to guest and employee needs
What I learned is that a most rewarding day is when you carefully listen to a person, meet their needs and thank them after a business transaction (I am happy when they are happy).
The management is wonderful. They apply the principal of trust, respect honor and integrity, the employees understands that they are the most important resource in their service commitment to the guest.
Co-workers are wonderful people, great team players.
The hardest part of the job is the day you fail to meet a customer need
The most enjoyable part of the job is that I am empowered to create a unique and memorable experience for the guest.
