FilterPalm Springs, CA
I have been working at Marriott International part-time (More than a year)
I have never worked somewhere were the the management cares about you so much. I work here while attending school and everyone is so supportive of my education even though they know that I am not looking to further my career with the company. They accommodate my busy schedule and I am thankful for that. Best management I have ever had. I recommend working here definitely!
The position doesn't pay a lot but it is great for those looking to further their education! It is a good start within the hospitality business if you are looking to further your career within the company.
Discounts on hotel rooms.
Low pay. Most employees in tipped positions have never gotten a raise so a person with fifteen years experience is worth the same to the company as someone just off the street.
No room for advancement unless you move. It is very hard to stay in one place and advance. The company required you change locations about every two years in order to climb the corporate ladder.
incompetent middle management
little attention paid to feedback. Every year they have this thing called the Associate Opinion Survey. Every year we tell management the same issues and every year nothing changes
no loyalty. If they need to cut costs, you're gone. They've got to keep management happy
weak benefits, and expensive
There is definitely a lord vs. serfs mentality here. The management rules the roost in all aspects of the business and if you get a poor manager you just have to suffer through it. Fortunately, since they require you to move to grow, you only have to suffer for a couple of years.
Advice to Management
allow people to advance without moving
listen to feedback from front line employees
