Too much responsibility for the money .they want you to be a staff manager for cook money. And still give cook's hours if you're not salaried. Just need to up the pay and trust supervisors more.

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.
Pros
Pay, smoke breaks
Cons
Poor quality food, managment.

Some people from other countris afe hard to understand

I loved working here. I learned so much and love the fast paced environment. Management was willing to teach you and help you grow. Unfortunately all the ESPN Zone owned by Disney closed.

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.
Pros
something new everyday
Cons
when business gets slow

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.
Pros
Meal breaks and Company Benefits
