Long Working hours, Management is harsh and are workaholics

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Bosses calling at night and assuming that you should work for them even after office hour. They also have been calling your personal mobile phone and texting you all the time. People here are authoritative and hierarchical. Basically well paid but no career advancement.

The wage is quite competitive and nepotism abounds

No work-life balance, long working hours (at least 12 hours per day), nepotism abounds in every department, and you will be highly stressed and frustrated on daily tasks if you are not related to top management.

Pros

The Wage

Cons

Everything

要你個人能力好高才適應到工作,其實工作範圍冇固定每樣嘢都要執生工作時間唔穩定要輪班對於有生活家庭嘅比較難適應

Stressful work but well paid

Management directions always change due to management change. Sales targets are not easy to reach, those works are stressful and overtime work happened occasionally. But they paid well.

Very good

We can have a good training at first. Then, we will have a flexible break time and lunchtime during work. I feel lucky that I got a good senior to teach me

You (your luck) decide you experience

They assign you to a host and it's very unlikely that you'll go somewhere else after you graduated from the program. And HR has limited influence on how your host is going to assign you tasks / treat you / train you so your experience will depend on your luck, you can also fight for a fruitful experience though. Good place to start your career, but might not be the best place to stay if you are too laid back.

Pros

Very decent pay, work from home

Cons

Learning curve might not be steep at times

Flexible schedule

The schedule of the position of the part-time customer service representative was quite flexible. It was good for students to train their communication skills.

垃圾管理

管理只按人頭處理事情,而不是用職能處理事情永遠由不理解公司運作的人去當管理決策,没有了解前缐職員的苦況,放假突發on duty, 只識比返comp leave

Pros

大公司

Cons

工作範圍模糊,瑣碎繁複流程多

Not bad

Working environment so-so, but the pay is really good. Worked in a team that only works for 4 hours sometimes for an 8 hour shift. So doing part time is definitely worth it.

Pros

Pay well

Cons

not much upside

It is good for those who would like to have a stable working environment

I worked there in 2005 for only 4 months. As my contract is just a 3 months contract and I have found a perm job in my 4th month so I quit because of a better opportunity. The culture of HKJC is a very local one. There still got a tea lady to serve you tea every day. I was spoilt by that kind of service. Other than that, the people there are very kind to me. I'm not sure is it because I was too fresh and not competitive. The only annoying part is they have very rigid working hours. As a designer, I prefer flexible working hours.

Pros

Team lunch, tea lady service, rigid working hours, gym

Cons

Long probation, salary is not competitive

與其他員工建立友好關係

在工作中,我學習到與員工建立友好關係是不可缺少的元素。因為無論任何一種工作,都需要與其他員工一起工作。要提早工作效率的話,與員工共同工作會提升工作效率。

High-standard working environment

Most members of Hong Kong Jockey Club are rational, well-behaved and nice. Managerial level treated part-time staff very well, they like to have a short briefing before to start event for reminding us the process during the event. Excellent guidance is the key to success. My supervisor had never punish me harshly when I did something wrongly, instead of scolding at me, she would prefer explaining the importance of doing it correctly and how to serve the members in a well manner.
