They need to stick to the Marriott motto, which they don't. If you treat your employees great the they will treat our customers great and the customer will return,

Marriott offers travels benefits where I was able to capitalize on for my honeymoon. I also was able to save some money in my 401K which is used for my mom's hospitalization.

Everywhere you go, you're going to find managers who just don't care about their employees. And nowhere was that more evident than at the San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront. The managers did not want to assist and stayed in the back. They only appeared when their managers or high profile guests were present. The back of the house is absolutely filthy. Fruit flies and garbage everywhere.

A typical day at work, was using my brain fully to pay attention, for the least error could make the simplest operation shut down. So I always had to be aware of my surroundings and alert to be attentive of whatever came my way! After learning all of the computer do's and don'ts, I felt: If I never learned anything else, I'd be OK in life. However, it was a lot my mind took in. Management? Well, some were great! but needed to be more humble, lets say that! I never worked with so many nationalities! I loved Every minute! Hardest part of the job was getting up some days,at 5am in the morning. but I enjoyed the food that we had in the cafeteria and I worked with the nicest group of employees. made lasting friendships!
Pros
the break room
Cons
getting up at 5am at times

Usually began work at 6:00am (clean and pressed) by reporting to Exec. Sous Chef Y. Tuncay. Cleaned and sanitized my designated work station; set-up sanitation buckets, appropriate cutting boards, (usually white and/or red); collected holding towels (blue) and wiping cloths (white). Cleaned and set-up all tools and equipment: (i.e., turned on grill, ovens, stoves, etc..) knives, spatulas, tongs, etc.. Reviewed all events; especially Banquet events posted. Created (with Chef on duty) a prioritized "to do prep" list and began working. Teamwork is always an essential component in meeting all events requirements. Communication is "key" to good teamwork. Co-workers are my team mates. I value their support and input. Long-standing/senior team mates are sometimes slow to accept new co-workers and their methods of doing an assignments; even though the same results are achieved. This was difficult. The people.Most were engaging, witty, cordial and quite talented!!!
Pros
We are busy and that's always a very good thing.
Cons
Long-standing and outdated methodologies that required more time to complete than was necessary.

Great place to work, especially if you like working in a busy work environment. Everyone is super friendly and welcoming to new employees. It's fun, and if you are in a position that is allowed to take tips, they are great. Main cons:: The schedule comes out on a week to week basis so it makes it very hard to plan anything in the future in the span of one week.... Management is cool, but they don't know how to lead and encourage a team (nor schedule). They also lack experience within the hotel industry, and it shows in their management. Management also lacks acknowledgement for other departments beside the front desk. The company drills people to learn the 15/5 rule.
Pros
Good benefits, great place to work, they really take care of their employees
Cons
Short breaks

I think for the whole time I worked for marriott hotels I realized they keep their employees happy and for the same reason employees take care of their jobs so the entire machinery works smooth.
Pros
Managers (for the most part) gives you power to make decisions
Cons
Sometimes you have to go thru a long list of screens to get to a simple task

A typical day was a sold out hotel with several events going on and groups in house. I learned how to manage a hotel during a sold out situation while still performing to the best of my ability when things were fast paced and chaotic. My coworkers were always available to help.
Pros
free dry cleaning
Cons
lunch wasn't free

Be familiar with the locations of all function rooms and related areas and the various types of workable setups. Efficiently set-up and break-down all department functions. Assists guests whenever possible, referring all requests which are beyond the scope of your responsibility immediately to your Supervisor or Catering Service Manager on duty. Carry out all reasonable requests by management which the associate is capable of performing.

Marriott is a good company to work for. It is very diverse. The people are nice. I love working with people from different cultures. They are real good on giving you requested days off to take care of family business.
