Marriott International has proven to be one of the top employers worldwide. In Edmonton, Alberta, I had the pleasure of working for a Delta property, which has been outstanding. Management has had many changes throughout the period I have worked at the hotel; but overall, it has been truly an amazing experience. My coworkers have been amazing and we pride ourselves in being genuine and caring when it comes to guest needs.
A typical day at work would be greeting different people everyday making sure everything is right for them. The work place culture was very good, I got to work a lot of great people and different personalities. Every work day awesome just because of who I was working with. Management was the same, they were great people. Always looked out especially knowing it was my first job and always teaching me something new.
I always look forward for the days when I have a shift, I enjoy working for the Marriott, best job I have had so far. Only problem is there is dead seasons where you get close to no hours unless you are the "top of the ladder".
Lunches provided (Taken off of pay)

free food, tips
physical work, unsocial hours
Working at the Marriott was a very enjoyable experience which improved and added to my skill set. I only left the position i was previously in for my desire to travel and live in Australia. I tended to work night shifts which in the begging was a difficult adjustment but i relished the challenge of more responsibility and new tasks. A typical nights work would mainly be attending to customers needs and preparing the hotel for coming day. I learned to deal with complaints in a way which ensured the customer felt satisfied, leaving our hotel with a positive experience. This was the most enjoyable part of my role as i felt entitled to represent the Marriott brand as if it were my own and found i excel most in my communication skills. Management gave me support when I needed it but also gave me the space needed to work efficiently. They also allowed a work place culture where I was able to become close to my colleagues building fantastic friendships.
I have learnt to work under pressure, my job there was a physical work and in a busy atmosphere so I had to control my self in those times. They provide me a training in reception and as a concierge that was better that I imagine and it remind me that to be a receptionist is my dream job.
Training, flexible schedules
sometimes the employees are not good rated
Better than most in hospitality in Aberdeen, however has much to be desired from. Lower managment generally ok, however the higher you go the worse. Terrible pay, very little to none advancement possibilities but it's hard to get fired. One would have to try really hard.
Free horribly coocked lunches and dinners
A typical work day at the Marriott was alluring I couldn't argue with the view of Waikiki Beach right where I worked. Everyday I worked at the bar my duties included cutting garnishes, stocking the bar, prepping the back room and control inventory stock. Most of my customer service experience came from working in the hotel industry. Overall management was good, there were times when a certain situation would arise and they didn't know how to handle it correctly but overall experience was good. My Co-workers were always the highlight of my day we all got along quite well and always worked as a team to provide our guest with the best over all experience at the Marriott. The hardest part of my job was my work schedule because I was on the bottom of the seniority list I always got the hours that no one wanted so I worked nights weekends and even holidays if they needed me. The most enjoyable part of my job at the Marriott was being a bartender and meeting people from all over the world.
Open Cafeteria, great co-workers and worked near the beach
Horrible traffic going to and from work
