It Pays to Work Hard at Marriott

Catering Sales Executive (Current Employee)
Bethesda, MD

ProsMarriott provides a supportive work environment. They have some of the best training in the industry and provide employees with the opportunity to move around and work in serveral departments. Management encourages a wide breadth of experience and are encouraged to push emoployees to try new things and departments. The benefits-medical and retirement are decent enough and competative with those in the industry, as is the pay. There is a choice in plans for medical and the majority if not all of dental, vision, disability and life insurance are covered. Marriott retirment savings will match what you put in up to a ceratain percentage. They are many resources available to all employees for everything from cell phone discounts to help with life planning. The employee discounts on rooms aren't to shabby either!

ConsBeing the hospitality industry hours can't be helped. If you are working on property in an operations department, you are going to work nights and weekends. This isn't neccessarily a bad thing, depending on your lifestyle and other obligations. They will always try to give you your two days off in a row as if it is a real weekend. The hours for manager are less than ideal. You must work a minimum of 50 hours per week, whether it is busy or not. Most managers are salaried so this is looser for them than others, however with a new change in some positions, some have been switched to hourly, which means working 10.5 hours per day in order to make their promised salary. There are also problems with going from property jobs to corporate jobs. There is little cross over from one to the other as they make it hard to have the proper requirements/experience to do so.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlways be open and honest about changes that are happening in the company, particularly when they directly effect the employees. Keep up with the training available and encourage all employees to take advantage of said training. The associate appreciation events are a great way to show you care, however many properties do not participate, or do so in a limited fashion. Strongly encourge/mandate properties to participate in these pivotal activities.
