Pros

Working at Marriott is the best job oppourtunity that I have ever had. The manager is very understanding and professional at the same time. We have weekly guest here and they are the most down to earth people that I have met. It is like my second home here. It is a very professional place that gives you plenty of room for a career growth.

Cons

There are very few downsides to the front desk at a marriott. I would say dealing with rude guests or trying to answer the phones while checking people in. That's about it!

Advice to Management

I love everything about the Marriot and I appreciate all that has been done to keep us up and going. It really is the best job to have! Great job on all that you do and I am looking forward to being with Marriott for the years to come.

    Pros

    The benifits are great. I absolutly love the discounted rooms across the world! Management is very competent and knows how to communicate with managers and assistants alike. There is plenty of room for growth, and the internal training is top notch! You could go into this job knowing nothing, but in five weeks, you know enough to sell mulitple hotels.

    Cons

    As a sales organization, I wonder if it is getting caught up in its own bureacracy...we all work in an office, far away from the customer and the hotels. The idea is to be more customer forcused, offering availability of more hotels through "One point of contact"...but in reality: it is a cost cutting method to decrease the number of managers in the company to generate more revenue with fewer managers. Apparently the strategy is working...however, it translates into long hours and less pay in comparison to industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Allow internal applicants to bypass the HR recruiters. Iunderstand the need to weed out unqualified candidates, however, the hiring managers already know me. Why should I have to call a recruiter in Illinios so I can get a sit down with the hiring manager that I already have a relationship with.

    Pros

    Great hotel, great people. The cheap hotel rooms worldwide was by far the best incentive part of the job. I met several great people from around the world.

    Cons

    I orginally loved working for this place, however a few months into the posistion there was a change in management. Orginally we had several promotions and incentives for employees that gave us extra $$ on our paychecks.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job at keeping your employees happy. Bill Marriott said, "If you treat your employees well, they treat your customers well." Live by that.
