Marriot is a great company to work for, great benefits and higher then normal pay.BUT the Housekeeping Dept at the new Ocean Front Hotel is terrible!I really hope the new male supervisor can figure things out and get them straight.When I was hired on the spot back in June, i was hired at $20 per hour. Yes, summer incentive BUT that was not made clear to me until 9 days after i started working there. To get that $20 your rooms have to be above 90% cleaniness, perfect attendance, be on time every time AND THE BIGGEST KICKER OF THEM ALL.....YOU HAVE TO HAVE ALL YOUR ROOMS DONE BY THE END OF YOUR 8HR SHIFT. SOUNDS EASY, RIGHT?Well you cannot complete 9 to 16 rooms by yourself in a 8hr period when check out isnt until 11 (80% of guest stay later 12 to 4pm) Also your different levels of the Marriot Rewards program determines your check out time, for instance if you are a titanium member your check out is at 4pm. That many rooms to be done to their check list standards is impossible! Yes, many girls get all their rooms done in that time, HOW? Well they cut corners! Dont vacuum, sweep, mop, change sheets. I was paired with 7 different partners and ONLY 1 did it 100% right, and correct to their standards. They are blind to that factor.On top of running floor to floor trying to find supplies, sheets, towels. Super busy weekend but the night time house men or early morning housemen dont do their jobs, so when housekeeping comes in and are ready to work...closets are in disarray, no supplies, carts used for housekeeping are DISGUSTING, trash left on them, old wet towels, sheets, - more...

The work here was slow paced but also have to move fast in each room. Low maintenance from management, no one micromanaging. Great place to learn who you are.

I arrived at 8, had to turn in reports to franchisee by 9:15, Balance previous days sales for all departments, submit employee time for the day before. Write checks for deliveries, prepare the bank deposits, submit new hire paperwork, and verify references, conduct safety training and new hire orientation. Make a trip to the bank to do deposits and do change orders for the following day. When necessary, be a third party observer for inventory audits for each department (restaurant, hotel, housekeeping, bar and gift shop).
Pros
Nice surroundings
Cons
Stressful enviornment

Rewarding interactions with people from all walks of life. Typical day involves making a difference in a person's day by providing customer service, knowledge of things to do and/or area, and being a part of a company that provides a home away from home.

I enjoyed it. Nothing really stood out as really good or really bad. I enjoyed meeting the hotel patrons and the staff were always really kind to each other, even if we were in different departments.
Pros
Meeting People
Cons
Dealing with Rude People

Spent years with Westin in several cities. Love the brand, and the pros outweighed the cons for me. Hotel discounts are huge benefit for my family and I. I enjoyed the pace most of the time, huge turnover with hotels and its hard to retain people.
Pros
Hot Lunch;
Cons
Short Lunch; hard to take breaks

Stay away. They're robotic, insensitive, cold and calculated to employees as well as guests. Stress is created with no concern or consideration for staff or patrons.

The Westin was at one point a really exciting place to work, until management changed. From the point on things was not quite the same.
