Jason's Comments: I like the money and the benefits package. My job comes natural to me because I like helping people. We are all about service, pampering guests and they come back because of our employees. Our team is great here with lots of teamwork. I enjoy the events which are always something to look forward to and it shows you’re appreciated. I like the surroundings; the town and hotels are beautiful and Niagara-on-the-Lake is peaceful.

Rudy's Comments: I enjoy the money, the benefits, the team I work with and our guests. Our guests are different – they come to celebrate special occasions and we offer great service, exceptional food and an inviting atmosphere. I work with a team that has been with me for a minimum of 10 years and we are like a family.
Team Member: Michelle Miller
Position: Corporate Director of Revenue
Employee Since: January 1990
Michelle's Comments: We have a great working environment from the dynamics of our guests to the team we work with. I enjoy my role as the Corporate Director of Revenue, and it is important for me to know the role of each team member to understand how each activity can positively impact our guests. The entire team demonstrates pride in the environment and in turn, this is reflected in the interactions with our guests. My length of service is a direct reflection of Vintage Hotels' ability to provide growth, training and succession opportunities. As a company we treat our team with great respect and we are able to provide the additional privileges not extended in other work environments.
Team Member: Kim Feletar
Position: Pastry Chef
Employee Since: April 2003
Kim's Comments: In my position I have a lot of freedom to learn new things and Chef encourages us to experiment. I like the inter-property communication – I have colleagues to talk to and to share recipes and ideas with. I have learned hands on through various positions as a Kitchen Prep, Apprentice Cook and in my present position as a Pastry Chef. My approach to teaching new team members in the bake shop is hands on, and it is fulfilling to be able to help others develop and grow. In terms of advice, I would say that any experience you can get helps. The benefits and pay are good, and I enjoy having the opportunity to participate in extra curricular activities and community events.
