THE SOUND OF A LOVELY ORCHESTER
Why it's worth playing a part at Hotel Das Tigra.
What does it take to keep things running smoothly at the hotel? Friendly interactions, empathetic conversations, and a spirit of camaraderie are second nature to us. This also includes a healthy culture of embracing mistakes constructively. We recognize strengths; it's a living manifestation of our appreciation. All of this creates a harmonious encore of comfort!
In our exquisite orchestra at Das Tigra, the most important thing is our respectful treatment of each other. Whether it's in service, reception, or housekeeping, we all hold equal value and aim to make our workplace a source of joy. Even when there are occasional discordant notes in our professional routine, our open-minded approach quickly restores harmony so that the melody of our family-run establishment delights both our guests and ourselves.

The Sound of Your Future Teammates
Which ranges of pitch we set through the strings of our instrument.
I've been part of Tigra since 2011. I started as a housekeeper back then. Today, I work in reservations. I consider myself fortunate to have been given this opportunity. When I look back, I'm always surprised by how much I've changed as a person. I used to be introverted, but now I'm practically the opposite! A lot of that has to do with the openness I've encountered here. There's an atmosphere of collaboration, allowing us to discover hidden qualities.
A crucial aspect of this environment is a culture that accepts mistakes as a part of growth. Trust is essential because it strengthens personal accountability. It's necessary, especially in our industry, where we've weathered external crises together. Here, we have ample time to focus on our tasks and discuss issues openly.
First and foremost, we are humans here, and then we are employees. Have I ever thought about working in a larger hotel? Of course, but I know many acquaintances who work in big establishments, and they often talk about the stress. Why would I leave a place where I feel comfortable and respected?
I remember it vividly: on September 3, 2018, I signed my employment contract and began working here at the hotel. It was a thrilling experience for me. It was my first job, and I hadn't been in Austria for very long before that. Many of my colleagues come from different countries, which makes it easier to integrate and adapt. For me, learning the language quickly is crucial to truly contribute. It's essential for any role in the hotel.
What's crucial for the great atmosphere at Tigra is our willingness to connect with each other. If I have an idea on how to improve or simplify something, I can always approach my boss. He listens. They are open to smart changes and appreciate when you ask questions. Currently, I work in both service and housekeeping. Every shift presents a different challenge, and that's what's beautiful about this profession.
In the future, I can see myself working at the reception. There, I'd be even more like a concierge for the guests, recommending them where to find culinary specialties not mentioned in guidebooks or which concert is currently a hidden gem.
