Mitarbeitererfolgsstory Monika Seer

I have been a restaurant manager at Sky Restaurant for almost 6 years and I can hardly put into words how much I love my job. The wealth of variety created by the different guests from all over the world is simply priceless. Working with our apprentices fills me with joy – watching their personal and professional growth and making a positive contribution to it is simply great.

Every day brings new encounters, new stories and new challenges, and that’s what inspires me again and again.

Erfogsstory Maria Morales

After climbing Huascaran (the highest mountain in Peru) and crossing the Ferrari route on Alpamayo, as the first Latin American woman to do so, it was clear to me that I could only go higher in the Himalayas.

Somewhere at an altitude where the mountains in Europe have long since stopped, I met an Austrian who also wanted to go high, or rather, up high.

What was combined in the thin mountain air could no longer be separated by the oxygen-rich air at lower altitudes. So I moved to Salzburg and met Marbelly from Guatemala, who got me a job as an evening maid at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, now the IMLAUER Hotel Pitter.

Over time, my mountaineering ambitions turned more and more into running ambitions, and so today I am known as an ambitious runner at the IMLAUER companies.

Erfolgsstory Julian Adelsberger

“I like to be challenged and encouraged at the same time.”

I started my apprenticeship as a restaurant specialist at the IMLAUER Pitter in 2021 and have learned a lot of new things since then. I owe my smooth entry into the world of work in particular to my great colleagues, who always support me and are there to help me whenever I need it. The decision to go into gastronomy was easy for me, as my parents work in this industry themselves and I want to offer guests not only good food, but also an unforgettable time with excellent service.

“From apprentice to executive sous chef”

I started my apprenticeship as a chef at the IMLAUER Hotel Pitter in 2009 and successfully completed it in 2012. I then stayed at the hotel and worked as a chef de partie and later as a tournant.

For the next 2.5 years, I developed my skills in various kitchens.

I returned in 2018 and have held the position of Executive Sous Chef at the IMLAUER Sky Bar & Restaurant since May 2022.

Many of our employees have taken the opportunity to develop internally within the company. This is particularly evident in our trained apprentices, who stay with the company after their training or work seasonally and return later.

Christina Rosenberger

I was able to gain my first experience and enjoy working in the hotel industry at the age of 16 as a service intern. As a result, I decided to do an apprenticeship as a hotel and catering assistant at IMLAUER Hotels & Restaurants, where I was able to get to know all the departments at the “IMLAUER Hotel Pitter”.

I was particularly impressed by the work at reception back then.

After another year, I started looking for new tasks and decided to break completely new ground and change industries. Just six months later, I realized that my heart still beats for working at reception. So I returned to the IMLAUER hotel family and after a short time I worked my way up to Front Office Supervisor.

The adult apprenticeship as a hotel and catering assistant was the best decision of my life”.

Jobs in tourism will always have a future and there is nothing better than seeing happy guests.

Praktikantinnen IMLAUER Hotels & Restaurants

We particularly appreciate the excellent teamwork between the apprentices, interns and employees. In addition to evening service in the Sky restaurant, we were also able to gain valuable experience at the banquet events.

We really appreciate the opportunity to work in different service areas and we are happy to be able to gain so much valuable experience here.

We are grateful for these valuable insights and look forward to learning even more and developing personally in the remaining weeks. We will certainly remember the IMLAUER Hotel Pitter and its warm atmosphere.

“Thanks to the Imlauer family, I have the opportunity to live out my independence and take on responsible tasks.”

It fills me with great joy to see how well the cooperation works in this large family business with the many employees, apprentices and trainees.

The IMLAUER Hotel Pitter is famous for its Salzburger Nockerl. The sweet finish is served personally at the table by each service employee. It is a personal and amusing experience how every guest watches me closely and praises me for my work. I am thrilled by this special atmosphere and look forward to gaining many more unforgettable experiences in this internship.

This profession not only allows you to earn good money, work all over the world, meet interesting people… but maybe even save lives!

Of course, this is all very hypothetical, but if a guest hadn’t told me to have my birthmark on my head looked at by a specialist, I would certainly have had bigger problems in a few years’ time.
On this advice I went to the dermatologist, who cut it out and it turned out to be black skin cancer.
Fortunately, it was recognized relatively early, but in my case I only have Gastro to thank for that – that’s definitely how I see it.

Chef de R

My name is Emma, and I work at the IMLAUER Sky Bar & Restaurant as Chef de Rang. I really appreciate the cooperation among the employees here. I always enjoy the varied work with guests from Salzburg as well as from different countries and cultures. I particularly enjoy supporting our inquisitive apprentices and following their progress. At the company, I have the opportunity to continue my training in the field of tourism alongside my job and to put what I have learned into practice straight away.

The special thing about our hotel is its versatility, as we employ apprentices in the IMLAUER Sky Bar & Restaurant, in the PitterKeller, at banquet events and for catering. I really appreciate this opportunity to get to know different areas and take on a variety of tasks.

What I enjoy most is making the guests happy and I enjoy working in a team. Here with us, the employees are like one big family, and that creates a great working atmosphere.

Emily Fischer, Apprentice restaurant specialist

I have been working at the IMLAUER companies in Salzburg since September 2018. There I started and successfully completed my apprenticeship as a hotel and catering assistant as an adult apprentice (only 2 years of apprenticeship). I then moved to the Convention Sales department at the IMLAUER Hotel Pitter. There I am responsible for the organization of company events, seminars, weddings and much more. Together with five other contact persons, we organize events in our diverse event areas such as the 1,200 m² Pitter Event Center, the IMLAUER Sky Restaurant and the PitterKeller restaurant.

I started my career at IMLAUER as a temp / Commis de Rang. After studying tourism at Salzburg University of Applied Sciences, I took over the events department at the “IMLAUER Hotel Pitter” in 2015.

I have always had a passion for hospitality and the hotel industry and after 5 years in the Convention Sales department, I was given the opportunity to take over the management of the Hotel am Mirabellplatz in 2020.

My time at the IMLAUER companies has been characterized by personal and professional development, enjoyment of work and valuable interpersonal relationships.

I look forward to celebrating further successes together with my great team in the future and creating unforgettable experiences for our guests
