COVID-19 has changed the Game
Let me tell you that 2020 is projected to the worst year on record for hotel and restaurant occupancy. The pandemic has confronted the hospitality industry with an unprecedented challenge.
❗️The reason I am doing this post is that 70% of the personnel who are applying now to various projects are complaining about low salaries and telling stories like "But during my previous contract the salary was much better". To the best of my knowledge I did salaries/conditions comparison with the same Clients before and after COVID story. Obviously the result was that the same restaurants, hotels are paying less now.
❗️Another point is that you have to understand there is a world of difference between long term cooperation and pop up. During pop up seasons the conditions are normally better but for a short period of time. If you are into long term partnership then you come on the scene and show something ( Probation ). If everything goes well the conditions will be getting better and the most important there will be opportunity to grow.
To sum it up, I want to everybody to keep calm and realize the world has changed. There is no way you will not a feel an impact. Unfortunately we have to curb out our appetites for a while. The hospitality industry is slowly recovering, so let's hope everything will be back on track soon.
