    I have been working at Marriott part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great training resources and online system. Fun and engaging work environment. Awesome travel benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Large company, hospitality hours and pay. Hard to feel like you can contribute to change. Slow days are killer if you want to make money and feel productive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage more with the employees and allow them to contribute to change. Give supervisors more Covell over their departments.
