A day in the life of a receptionist
It’s Saturday afternoon, 3 PM. Listen to all that chatter in different languages. Guests who travelled all day are queuing up before the reception. They want to check in as soon as possible. This is your moment. It’s time to start their holiday!
You and your colleagues work efficiently and with a smile on your face you’re checking in families and you answer all of their questions. Everyone leaves the reception worry-free and ready for their well-deserved time off. Your kindness makes the new guests smile as well. That’s how hospitality feels. That’s how you give guests a warm welcome.
In the meantime, the phone rings: “There is no water in bungalow 210, and the guests are on their way.” After a call to the technical department, the problem is resolved immediately. Two hours later your shift is done. Fancy a swim in the pool?

Janoek: “An adventurous way of working”
“I worked as a receptionist in France. A familiar atmosphere and when it was busy also some hard work. It’s an adventurous way of working, very good for your language skills and to meet new people. The days with colleagues were superb!”
