working with our people. Learn how to work in other areas. Being able to create new menu's every six months and provide the best food. Working as a team to get the job done and having a good time at the same time. Lifting heavy boxes. Joking with co-workers and managers.
Less money.Advancement opportunity is very slow.
I like working at Marriott-International because good people and good jobs learn a lot from a good chef and make different dishes they have good discounts to the hotels
I have worked in the kitchens of a few Marriott properties. My overall perception of the company is very good. They offer good pay, good benefits/vacation package, and outstanding travel discounts. My experience from one hotel to another varied greatly. I loved my job and managers at one hotel but completely loathed both at another. Unfortunately you do not know what type of experience you will have until you take the job. I called it quits most recently after being worked 60-95 hrs a week continuously and being overlooked for a promotion despite my hard work.
I came here expecting to do great, awesome things in the kitchen but come to find out its all frozen, heat to order food. Limited on what I could do in the kitchen do to "high labor cost" not able to show my talent, was always told not to go above and beyond with food specials or preperation. Nothing is made from scratch. Its all from a box or a bag of powder mix. Only good thing is the pay.
Pay, smoke breaks
Poor quality food, managment.
Very fast paced but there is plenty of help when the manager knows what he or she is doing. The other employees are good co-workers. There are some issues with co-workers that come from other countries and do not know English very well.
Great pay and benefits
Some people from other countris afe hard to understand
its a nice place to work for n a lot of team work n a nice staff n everyone help out each other n the chef is a great cook n great leader I really learned a lot I started out in the dish room n worked my way up to a lead cook
need a new dishwasher
a work day at the Marriot intense and fast pace ,always learning something new, different cooking techniques, working with new tools of the trade , management was the best that I have worked for always teaching, grooming, and preparing us for success ,the culture was to take you to your most highest place , the hardest part was waiting and being patient for promotion , because of the amount of talent that was present.the most enjoyable part of the the job was seeing a smile on people faces when they taste something that you created and they like.
something new everyday
when business gets slow
This located taught me a lot while I was there. I learned the time management great people skills. I worked with many different cultures to learn different techniques in food preparation.
growth knowledge and strength
long hour alot of time spent away from family
8 to 10 hour work hours per 5 to 6 days (pending overtime) Communication is practiced and implemented strongly Management and employee relationship is impeccable and well-structured. Co-workers are more than helpful and enticing, providing incredible feedback and executes excellent work ethics. Because the work setting is busy on a daily basis, important elements are maintaining communication, safety, and professional conduct. Guest interaction, employee / management relations, and hospitality services are the most enjoyable of the work.
