Humans Of The Lord Elgin – part 4

ANWAR – Reservations Agent

Picture of anwar at his desk“I have been working for the Lord Elgin Hotel for over seven and a half years; working reservations for just under five years. I actually started working as a valet.”

“There have been quite a few memorable experiences since I have been at the Lord Elgin. I have had two kids, so working here is very family oriented because it is family owned. Once I started a family of my own the work I do here has influenced what we do as a family and for my kids.You know you work to have a paycheck, so you can take care of your family. Then, doing things with my kids always refers back to the Lord Elgin; with my time or my training and the things I have learned from the Lord Elgin, and within the city. I take them places I never knew about before until I learned about it through my work at the Lord Elgin.”

“At the Lord Elgin Hotel, everything is about the personal touch. Everyone who is here for years, years and years, are not here for the salary or because it is convenient to get to work. They are here because they want to be. Everyone pushes each other and the guests push us, because we do our jobs well with care and we really enjoy what we do.”
