    I worked at Marriott full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Sage ran the operations of the hotel that I worked for, and they were truly amazing. I loved working for the Marriott and was sad when it was time to move on. They world with my hours as a University student and were always supportive of my hopes and dreams. They even allowed me to take off 3 months to intern in Africa.

    Cons

    I really had no problems while working here. Of course they made some awful hiring choices at times, but they soon realized their mistakes and dismissed the newest member of staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, you are wonderful!
