Self involved manager, badly run, illegally withheld pay, NO RESPECT

POWDERHORN CHATEAU, OHAKUNE, NEW ZEALAND -- especially backpackers BE WARNED!! After offering a job under completely false pretenses to help them out over one busy period. We were bagged out, told we didnt know how to do the job that we had been doing for 7years prior on our FIRST shift. Not good enough, too young and shouldnt be in the industry. Had pay illegally with held (no consent to do so and took from pay without first coming into our hands for an amount they decided upon with no word to us till we chased it up the DAY we flew out of the country),they are cowards! Deductions for flights at double the amount, no respect, no honesty, worst place in 10 years i have EVER worked and would NEVER recommend the badly run business and very self absorbed operations manager to anyone! shame cos its such a beautiful spot. It took us a month to get our contracts, took 5 weeks to be informed of the pay decrease from offered salary to casual rate. Being a backpacker it took till after the first pay week to be informed it was required to have an IRD number before getting paid ... this took 4 weeks to get and another week before pay was organised. Slack, useless and no respect for anyone!!! JG - canada.
