Working at the front desk, you start to meet people from all over the world. It's really fun to get to know them and learn about their culture. It would get a lot of people at one time but other than that it's a great place to work!
They don't care about employee's. I worked for 2 year's less than 3% increases, unsafe working conditions and do not care about work life balance. The only thing corporate Marriott cared about was the hotel owner's, because of this maintenance is neglected, employee's are paid poorly, the only thing that matters is the bottom line. Even costomers didn't matter the hotel I worked never had hot water instead of fixing the problem they trained how to deal with an angry customer.
I'm writing this review in hopes to get some kind of help. At the location I currently work at, there's many problems with employees. The Housekeeping Manager hides a lot from our General Manager. I personally feel like HR needs to be aware of a particular day where the Housekeeping Manager left with a housekeeper to an "appointment" on company time. He was being paid as he went to said appointment and hasn't experienced any kind of disciplinary actions taken toward him for this. He picks favorites and drives out the employees he dislikes. I'm hoping this review gets some kind of recognition to the problems we're encountering at our location because it makes it almost impossible to feel like everyone is being treated equally at our workplace.
A sense of belonging
Managers pick favorites/leave work on company time
I enjoy that I can work in my pajamas and have no commute. I provide rooms for guests to relax & connectivity on work trips. My manager helps me to improve my skills with monthly virtural meetings, and if I need to improve, I know what areas to improve in. The travel room discounts for employees is great! I enjoy travelling & time off & I am refreshed when I come back to work. I'm able to relate to guests that stay in our hotels when I have been to the hotels & local venues, I can give recommendations when I have firsthand knowledge gained by the travel.
My experience working at the University Park Marriott was a very positive one to say the least. Upper management was fair honest and caring and room for advancement in my position was offered tell me if I were to stay dedicated to the company. The Marriott company in general is a well established entity.
Honestly I get tired of jobs easily but I never got tired of this one! The only downsides are that your shifts are 8 hours and youre standing the entire time (invest in some good shoes) AND raises are only around .25 every June unless you're promoted. Advancement opportunity is honestly the best there is and I wouldn't want to leave unless I have good reason to (hired at a better paying job in my case) BUT, it is decent pay! I'm currently making 11.27/hr it's just not enough to feel comfortable while renting. ANYWAY all of the staff throughout the entire hotel feels like family to me and I've never had an issue with anyone I've worked with. It seems as if your well-being is actually cared about rather than being disposable :)
While working as a reservation specialist, the atmosphere was fantastic. This was the first 3/4 of my time employed. I then shifted to maintenance. My boss didn't know how to supervise. I also believe he was intimidated by me, maybe because I was 15 years older than him. I heard through the grapevine he was fired several months later.
There is always room to grow with this company and they really appreciate there employees. They are always giving them ways to learn more about all their hotel properties so you can be more knowledgeable in helping the customers find the hotel for their needs.
lots of fun parties

Marriott can be a fantastic place to work for those looking to acquire a unique set of skills and to further discipline oneself. Furthermore, they provide their employees with a great benefits package and employee discounts at participating locations.

I liked the work, done on a computer. Taking inbound calls, speaking with customers, & taking credit card information! You had to bid for your shift which was hard for me at the time to juggle family obligations! Since then, my family had grown up!
Bidding on shifts
Marriott has wonderful managers and supervisors tat are wiling to help when you don't know Ann answer to a question that the customer has. Also has many benefits that most people are looking for.
