I have been working at Marriott Vacation Club as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Discounted room rates, good company culture.

Cons

I had a poor experience. I have completed internships with other companies, that had far greater internship programs. As an intern with Marriott, the next step in the progression is to become a manager. In the application process I was told I would shadow the manager, and attend the meetings that they attend. I would basically be prepping to step into a management position. None of that has happened, I have been given the worst shifts, have only spoken to my manager a total of 2 times, both times were less than 10 words. The company offers development programs for the associates, but I have been scheduled to work for every single one of them, so I have not been able to attend. The managers here are terrible with guests, I have seen many managers be fired who were much better than the ones I work for now with Marriott. It is very unfortunate, because Marriott is such a recognized name, and they are failing to uphold the standards that other Marriott hotels hold themselves to.

Advice to Management

Remember that the interns become the next managers. If you want to have a good selection of candidates to hire, take some time to develop them while they are at your hotel. If we aren't getting the development that we need during college and internships, when are we supposed to get it.
