I am so happy it’s finally Sunday……
It was one of most difficult work weeks I had in years. Extramely intense and with ton of preasure.
Hotel is getting more and more busy with now having over 400 people in house, no experianced staff, 2 outlets operating to the limits and no one really to help it got its toe on me.
On top of that preparation for opening new franchise outlet reached its creatical phase and preasure just keeps mounting up. This week I dicovered that way kitchen is build is actuall very different from how it was designed and I’m not sure yet how are we gonna work around it.
But my biggest worry is that We are still missing a lot of contaiers with decorations, scenery, equipment. A lot is still missing and with arrival dates very, very close to the date when instalation team was suppose to get here.
Customs are not helping out either. Almost every container is stuck for days before they get their heads around what it contains and release it. I’m hoping we will manage to get it all together somehow.
Worst thing is that there is no one to help. Company is still working on Minimum teams. everyone is doing job of 2 or 3 people, recruitment is dissaster not only because there is no people but as well because HR is simply overloaded and she’s not managing at all.
In the middle of this I had my first COVID Vaccine shot and I lost almost 2 full days. First right after vaccine I felt sick and on a second day It was impossible to focus on anything. Exrtramely weird. Never felt like this.
At least uesterday I’ve managed to catch up finally a bit on a office work. Created few new procedures, wrote down SOP’s, maybe this week I can start focusing on trainign my supervisors. That will be a good change.
It will be a tough summer. that’s for sure. Still considering that 6 weeks ago I had only 2 staff memebers, no procedures, no one who understands F&B, no equipment and no plan – I wthink I’ve managed well.
Today’s Writing feels a bit like complate mess.
I better stop and get a glass of wine …….
