— people of 14 nations with a variety of personal life stories - from chefs to migrants - are working at the magdas HOTEL. Each and every one of them make this place so unique. If you have been here, you understand what we mean by that, and you will also have your own story to tell.
For people with a refugee background, it is still difficult to find work in Austria. Initial lack of German language skills, the resentment of many employers, as well as the circumstance that refugees are only allowed to accept work after receiving a positive response to an asylum application (which can often take months or years) make integration difficult.
At magdas HOTEL, they're convinced that those people who leave their home countries are able to strengthen the hotel business, because they bring with them many skills, talents, languages, and cultural backgrounds and thus allow for a special position in the hotel market.
