Decent Company to work for, however, regional Sales Office concept is an epic fail!

Pros

Opportunities all over the world if one is flexible to move. Marriott's product is excellent. I still prefer to stay at Marriott properties when I travel.

Cons

As a sales professional, working in the regional sales office is the equivalent to working at a call center. In my opinion, this is not a sales position. No face to face contact with clients is not built on true relationships and limits the sales manager's abilities. This is challenging.

Advice to Management

I don't have any feedback. Management does a good job at preparing those who desire growth.

  1. Marriott as a company is great, but the pay is not.

    Pros

    Huge network of hotels gives room to move around and be promoted Management is usually understanding and respectful Fun and young front desk staff Employee hotel discount is nice Time at work goes by quickly because you are always busy

    Cons

    LOW pay (barely above minimum wage) - makes it easy to burn out Training system has some flaws Dealing with some RUDE, pushy, unrealistic people - you have to learn to not take complaints personally The hours are hard to get used to, transitioning between early mornings and late nights Working on holidays

    Advice to Management

    Please find a way to pay the front desk staff a higher wage. Hire quality people who are great at the job, and the extra money you pay them would be well worth it. Don't hire idiots.
