Success stories

Dimitrij Zakharchuk - Front Office Manager

Dimitrij Zakharchuk

Front Office Manager

Since when do you work for The Mandala Hotel?
Since 15 November 2016. I already worked here from 2007 to 2011.

Why work for The Mandala Hotel?
I completed my apprenticeship in hospitality at The Mandala. The decision to come back was very easy for me, as I remembered The Mandala only positively and the training here gave me a lot of fun. Here I was able to "grown up". The Mandala helped me a lot in Germany - thank you very much! Moreover, as fate wanted, the job I was interested in had become free. 

How was your career at The Mandala Hotel?
In 2007, I came to Berlin without German knowledge and got a job as a houseman. After, about one year later, the management approached me and offered me an apprenticeship in hospitality, which I successfully completed in 2010. Then I got a job as a receptionist. After that, however, I moved to other hotels for a few years, where I gained a lot of experience. In 2016, I joined the position as Assistant Front Office Manager at The Mandala Hotel, and in February 2018, I was promoted to Front Office Manager.

What do you enjoy most about your profession?
Develop new ideas, which help to enthusiast our guest and improves the optimization of our work process and of course the guest contact.

What is your goal?
Grow in the position of Front Office Manager and continue to enjoy my work and achieve the company's goals with the help of my great motivated team.

Since when do you work for the Mandala Hotel?
Since summer 2017. I already worked here from 2002 to 2010.

Why work for the Mandala Hotel?
I chose The Mandala because I grew up here and I owe the hotel a lot. It was good to leave the hotel for a few years to gain experience. I was in Florence, on the MS Europa, in Sylt and in Switzerland at The Dolder Grand. But I am glad to be back! Now I can put my accumulated experience in The Mandala Hotel into practice and I am of course very happy about it.

How was your career at The Mandala Hotel?
From 2002 to 2005 I completed my apprenticeship as a restaurant specialist. After that, I was deputy barman at the QIU and later I took over the business lunch at the QIU Bar & Restaurant. In 2010, it was time to see other companies, which is why I worked abroad for several years and on the cruise ship MS Europa. Since summer 2017 I am back at The Mandala and have taken over the QIU Bar as Bar Manager.

What do you enjoy most about your profession?
What I enjoy the most is to be host, to read the guests wishes from the eyes and to mix their perfect cocktail. No day is like the other and so are the guests and nationalities. It's just exciting.

What is your goal?
I would like to take the QIU Bar & Restaurant to the bar in Berlin on Potsdamer Platz, the place to be.
