Working at Doubletree by Hilton in Aberdeen is amazing! I gained much experience from the job. I had a shift at the bar. It was both interesting and very excited! I even worked during the breakfast time. It was the best experience! Moreover, I helped other staff during conferences and of course, one of my favourite parts – banqueting. It’s getting more and more busier, so the amount of the guests is increasing. It’s very challenging for me and I am looking forward to the Christmas period.
I had an opportunity to try all the new meals because the hotel released a new menu. Here is one of our main meals 🙂 It was very tasty!
I have even found out a lot of new information about cash register and how to use it. These weeks were just a waterfall of new challenges, new information and new atmosphere. I am very happy that I have such a great opportunity to improve my skills in hospitality & catering 🙂
As concerns my free time, I usually go out to the city center. My favourite place to have a meal is Japanase restaurant YO-Sushi in Aberdeen. They made the most delicious soups in the world! After having a meal, I usually just walk around the city and get the energy and beauty of it. I thank the fortune every day for having the life that I am living right now because it’s the life that I have dreamed of all my life. Thank you! <3
Have an amazing day,
CHASE Helsinki Update:
3rd week into work, the clarion is an amazing hotel with so much to offer and the view from the sky room is astonishing; looking out over the city of Helsinki- and such great fun too. Also, the team are very enthusiastic and passionate too.
Day off work meant day trip to Suomenlinna for some cultural learning, an island just a 10 minute boat ride from Helsinki harbour, which is a wonderful and historical place full of character and interesting sights, including an 18th century fort plus the Finnish naval academy -which still uses part of the island to this day.
My first work week at the Doubletree Hotel by Hilton was amazing! I have found a lot of new information as well as meet my colleagues with whom I will work for the next 4 months. At the begging, I was very worried about my start at this hotel, but it wasn’t necessary. Everyone was very friendly and open to me.
My first work on the first day was food running. I found out how the meals look like and how to present them to the clients during my first shift. On the next day, I had a very useful training where I came to know about HEART and how to deal with the complaints. Afterwards, I had a day off when I went out to the seaside. On my way back, I have seen a very beautiful tree with decorations on it. The last 2 workings day I was helping at the banqueting and buffet. My favourite work day was when I helped at the banqueting! It was very nice! The guests very really friendly and I was very happy when they thank me 🙂 I had a very pleasant feeling, a feeling of usefulness.
I am looking forward to tomorrow because I am going to have a shift at the banqueting again. Can’t wait!
