Tough environment from a staffing perspective. Continual expectation was make the highest quality product with minimal which is a fantastic learning challenge. Overall a good job that was a good starting place for learning about quality.
Overall Marriott is a good place to work. There isn't much of a work life balance if you are in management but I think that is the case for most hospitality jobs. There is plenty of room for advancement especially if you are willing to relocate. They match 401k and offer decent benefits. I feel like most management is underpaid based on the amount of hours you work but they do have a nice culture.
Free lunch, 401k matching, benefits
No work life balance
I worked in various management positions ranging from operations to sales and thoroughly enjoyed my time working for Marriott. The support from my managers was invaluable. I was always asked about my career goals and encouraged on a daily basis. The workload was heavy most of the time, but that is to be expected on the operations side of the hospitality industry.
Vacation time, health benefits, employee hotel discounts, family environment
Long work days, as a manager expected to be on call.
Marriott is a great company to work for , they have a great verity of brand to satisfied all guest needs , they are structure , customer service oriented and great opportunity for growth .
I woked at Austin Marriott North. It was a very interesting experience. It was my first time ever not working in Banquets or Restaurants. I was a front desk supervisor. They really gave me an opportunity to really learn and test my ability to manage a team and still maintain exception guest service. It was a very humbling experience and it gave me new respect for what the front of house does. I moved from that position to an Assistant Banquet Manager position, which I was far more in my element. The hotel was very understanding that I was always wanting to move to the banquet team and when the opportunity arose, they really supported me.
Just another big corporation thats only concerned about the numbers. Employees are nothing more then away to achieve the numbers. The only time they act concern about anything is when they think they are going to be sued. I have spent almost 40 years in the hotel business and regardless if its Hilton or Marriott or what ever ,the attitude and mentality is the same. I would never advise my children to ever work for such a heartless and stressful environment in the hotel business.
Free lunch, good benefits, 401k
Long hours, no set schedules, lots of stress, No balance with life and work.
Fast paced daily, They offer the best training for hotel management. Some favoritism among a few. Employees come first atmosphere. The hours away from your family. The most enjoyable were fellow team members
free lunch, discount parking, clean environment
Lacks promotion opportunities for all
working in Banquet, it was long hours some time worked 16 hours, then come back after 7 hours rest and do it again. it was a challenge, but with upper management it was totally worth it.
free food, free dry clean.
A typical day at work is he come in clock in get ready for your meeting or stand up you meet your crew for today usually have a couple of last before you get into the meeting joke around then you get to the meeting which is pretty much telling you how your day is going to go when needs to be accomplished by the end of the day and usually everybody's in High Spirits and you usually have a good time just enjoying the guys that you work with.
Free lunch usually nice coworkers can be a fun place to work Healthcare and weekly pay
Unorganized can be unprofessional managers are sometimes unmotivated
