Great Place to work

Indeed Featured review

Great place to work, awesome perks, dealing with guest can be great meeting people from all over. One thing that got to me was that I like to be more active and at times the front desk can be at slow and boring.

Pros

Hotels all over

Cons

Can be slow and boring

Marriot is a great company to work for but you need a very strong, honest, leader!

I love working for Marriott! The benefits are great & the low prices on hotels with a variety of options is amazing! The only thing I would change is new management, they consistently change them so it causes dysfunction.

Pros

Health benefits & discounted rooms world wide

Cons

Constantly having new managers & management not being consistent.

Great team to work with at this hotel! Loved everyone and the leadership fully supported all employees.

I loved working at this hotel. It is a franchised hotel, and the management company is a great company to work for! I loved the property, the people I worked with and getting to help ensure guest's stays were great.

Pretty positive experience

It's a big company - Lots of personality types. My first manager was amazing, and helped other to succeed. Current manager wants to hold on to every employee, and not let them move up. Pretty discouraging. But the company is great to work for. Better place for young people to start then for someone with experience to move into.

See Below

*Leadership has challenges *Leadership does not treat employees with respect. * Lunch is required for all hourly employees. It seems that this can be overlooked if leadership is not scheduled to give breaks. * Bathroom breaks are challenging as well.

This is a career driven job

This job will help you plant your feet in a great company. Management is willing to help and does not want to see you fail. The happiness this job brings from making other people’s day, is a great feeling.

Hospitality

Poor pay, non-existent reviews and raises, terrible benefits. What else is there to say? Nights, weekends, holidays, it's all here. Fine if you need a job, not something I'd ever recommend long term.

Not too workload heavy with clear division of labor, good cafeteria food

Overall, my experience as an intern for 1 month was very enriching. I learned a lot about service professionalism but at the same time, I was not overwhelmed with work.

Working at Marriott Overall

Working at this hotel has been an adventure. Everything was exciting at first but it's to the point where I'm going everyone's job (including manager duties) without managers pay. It's now so bad that once I stoped doing everything that I've done for this job, nothing is going right. Employees are walking around as if they're constantly confused, which results in me managing everyone again.

Ok to work there as a younger adult

Ok place. Give them a try, not a bad place. They do however turn it into a nightclub on the weekends so you will have to stay pretty late. Everything aside the pay was good.

Productive and great place to start a career in hospitality.

I love my time at Springhill suites by Marriott. They gave me an opportunity to start my hospitality experience with little to no backround in the field. I quickly learned every aspect of the job and now I am ready to pursue other dreams, with the experience that the Marriott afforded me.

Pros

great opportunity, great staff

Cons

not enough full time hours

Great company

The L.A. Live property still has a long way to go in terms of enforcing and cultivating a healthy and positive work environment. There is clearly a lack of respect for diversity.

Cool place

Didn’t like the seniority union they had, gets really slow but pays well, managers sometimes only care about the guests and housekeeping team gets the worst half

Marriott is okay

There is a lot of gossip and trustfulness relationship with the staff. The customers are great and aren't hard to please, but dealing with other stuff like stealing is a great dysfunctional relationship.

Great experience

It was a great experience because I was thrown in and I was able to get into the flow of everything right away. The hotel I worked at was running downhill with lots of employees and managers staying for only like a month or two, I was there for a year and I learned to do everything and ended up even running it as a one man show. I even had a lot of 16hour shifts which either ran from 7am till 11pm or from 3pm to 7am, but this helped me realize what I am capable of doing.

Productive and fun

A typical day at work is greeting guests, making conversation, answering phone calls and doing paperwork. I learned all my duties for front desk in a short amount of time. Management was good in the beginning, its okay now. The hardest part of the job was trying to get management to complete a task that needed to be done for a guest asap. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to accommodate guests needs and they enjoy my service and compliment me.

Pros

Discounts for other Marriotts

Cons

Hardly have a break or down time

Employee discount

Hotels do not pay their employees a fair amount of money for what they are expected to do, especially the front desk staff. The only reason I work there is for the employee discount.
