    I worked at Marriott full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, cheap 5 star hotels stays, good colleagues

    Cons

    Bullying and aggressivity allowed and done without punishment by executive management, complaints about executive management are just deleted or ignored, expressing opinions leads to disciplinary, no prospect to advance unless you´re one of their national or you lick butts, too much politics and too many lies, too many chiefs, very ignorant and sad environment, I´ve seen so many people getting a nervous breakdown and crying, even the GM herself can get mean like in primary school, there were times where 10% of the employees resigned in one single week, even in one department of 7 people where they had 6 managers over 2 years, after the new manager felt he couldn't cope with them knowing more than him,he bullied them and 6 people resigned within one year....all departments are just the same there...people were congratulating each other once they know they will be leaving....associate surveys are hidden and don't lead to any changes and managers have a go with people simply to push them to leave...professionalism and manners of executive management are rather low level......and it goes on and on and on, an article in a local paper was even written about the mess in that place.....just do your self a favour and stay away!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GM please just resign really and have some dignity.....
    Senior management in the US you must love the 12,5% tax you´re paying and don't care about the rest....right?

    Warning about the "Kitchen Assistant" position

    I worked at Marriott full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are some decent people who work in the hotel.

    Cons

    Management is in collusion with the union representative which makes it exceedingly difficult for employees to approach their union. The place is extremely disorganized; the Marriott's right hand doesn't know what it's left hand is doing. New employees are given full-time hours in the beginning, but are eventually relegated to working only one day per week; coincidentally, just before their probationary period has expired. Nineteen dollars is deducted from each pay cheque to cover union dues.
    "Kitchen Associates" is just Marriott's vernacular for dishwasher. They don't pay you extra for doing tasks outside your realm. My advice to anyone who's interested in applying for this position is to look elsewhere. Trust me, it would be better to work at McDonald's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees fairly. They're considered "associates;" treat them as such. Stop subscribing to favoritism. The dishwashers are treated like pariahs; something that I'd noticed following Associate Appreciation Week. Also, if you hire somebody to work full-time, provide them with full-time hours, as opposed to only one day per week.
