I worked at Marriott International full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

You can take a lot of breaks as a housekeeper, and are pretty much left to your own devices

Cons

Always start at 9am, work until all rooms on your board are clean (12 or so) half hour maximum per room. Rooms are filthy and you clean a lot of nasty stuff. Tips a sparse, and at the place I worked, there was an absurd amount of drama. If you are sick you must call 4 hours before your scheduled shift and find your own replacement. (no one wakes up at 5am to see if they are sick! and no one will come in for housekeeping on their day off)

Advice to Management

hire more housekeepers so that the amount of rooms cleaned per day is manageable, and have a better system for calling in sick.

    I worked at Marriott International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and good work environment, some really good people who cared about getting the job done right

    Cons

    The "Good Old Boys" in IT management could get away with incompetent micromanaging, failure to anticipate problems (or listen when problems were forecast), scrambling to cover the problems, and blaming the prophets... Motel operations were the core strength, IT just managed to get by.

    I worked at Marriott International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I Loved working for this company. I was sad to see my position eliminated due to corporate reorganization in June of 2011.

    Cons

    Corporate restructuring led me to lose my position after 15 years with the company. It was sad and unfortunate to have to start over elsewhere after 15 years.
