Such a great environment to be part of. The energy with Marriott International is like no other. The respect they have with the guest and staff is amazing. I remember getting out of high school and being 19, I had no idea that the hospitality path was going to be my passion. There is no doubt in my mind that this company is for a lifetime career. They not only help you grow in your career path, but also make it productive and energetic.
Your experience with Marriott will depend greatly on the property. While the corporate culture is based on inclusion, mentorship, and teamwork, it is up to the management of each hotel to meet those standards. When they do not, employees suffer. My experience was in a truly toxic property, so poorly managed that standard employees were working upwards of 50 hours a week. Management would pit employees against each other in childish disputes, talk about others' private information behind their backs, and absolutely refused to have their team's back when dealing with nasty guests. Sales goals and overheads were the exclusive aims, resulting in consistently overbooked weeks while understaffing to the point of lunacy. Adequate safety precautions were not taken to protect staff from construction and chemical storage. Retaliation was common, and I personally knew 4 people who suffered mental breakdowns and had to leave. It was the most psychologically abusive environment I have ever worked in, and the Marriott 6-month rule, perhaps protective in other places, left everyone feeling trapped. I quit 3 months in and would hesitate to rejoin the company since, on reporting the issues to district HR, a large group of us were told changes would be made, and none came. Allowing festering sores like the hotel I worked at to continue operating as-is will be the downfall of the company ideals.If you take a job at Marriott, stay sharp, and if it seems that the environment is toxic, begin seeking work outside the company immediately. It simply isn't worth the utter apathy of upper HR to - more...
Free meals, discounts, personal training materials
No transfers within 6 month period, poor local management, low pay, hours make holding another job impossible even if you are barely scheduled, no work over holidays
This a franchisee of Marriott they are so over the inept management they are threatening to pull their name off the side of the hotel. Which would be my recommendation. Underfunded benefits.bare bones insurance coverage and no HR person. 😢 .
The marriott culture is really a very team oriented company. The brand standards are implemented daily involving what we wear, our attention to detail, and our over-all hospitality to our guest.
Free meals, Weekly paydays
Salaries could use a little improvement

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
A typical day at work was stocking, filing, copying, transferring phone calls, and watching the security camera. I learned a lot like how to make room service reservations, spa reservations, using the phones, transferring calls, and so on. Management was nice. Co-workers were very nice and helpful. I liked it. Therefore, there was no hardest part. The most enjoyable part was watching the security camera and keeping busy.
The most rewarding part of my job was knowing that I was teaching individuals skills that would support them of the rest of their lives. The hardest part of my job was opening new hotels and losing associates that were very good and having to start all over. Also I had a very supportive upper management team that knew how to lay out goals and objectives.
Marriott is a leader in training.

Marriott is a great company to work for. Diverse workplace, specially working with different countries and culture's people is an absolutely great way to learn and share each others idea. I've learned respect,courage, patience & team-work in Hospitality Industry by working with some good people. My management team is awesome and people I work with have such a great personality that we always help each others department to make sure everything is running smoothly. Which is from our internal customer (our employees) to external customers. The hardest part of the job is making everyone happy is sometimes difficult. But we always tried our best. The most enjoyable part of my job to see happy customer with their smile or happy co-worker. Human personality is very difficult to learn but if you have a positive attitude and works in a diverse workplace it really helps a lot. I am proud to be a part of Marriott Family.
