Awesome quarterly meetings with food, fun and awards.

Marriott seldom promote african americans into management at the larger hotels. They mention in the beginning that they promote community oriented activities but when I asked for more information on the subject matter-management seemed lost. During the a suprise audit my name (along with 3 other employees) was mentioned due to me providing awesome customer service. We passed the audit! However,all employees received a $50.00 gift certificate but I only received $25.00 because I was part-time.

Good Experience

I worked for more than 1 place. The management is the most important. It's can be fun and great place to work but if the MNG is not care about employees, it's can be very difficult to work for them. After all, it's great place to be and to gain new experience.

Nice job enjoyed working for marriott

I loved my position as cafe cook, my customer service representative skills were greatly appreciated, I loved cooking for the company, I would of loved to still be working for the company, but sometimes you get over aggitated at your higher ups for not understanding that sometimes you get tired especially when you are a senior citizen..

Pros

Pay rate

Cons

Chef attitude

The Courtyard Marriott was fast paced with high occupancy.

The Courtyard Marriott Waterfront was a very nice hotel although the building was twenty years old. There had been multiple renovations over the years but remodeling and repairs were constantly needed to maintain Marriott standards.

Fun and lively, but sporadic

My managers and the whole interdepartmental team was positive and lively. My only problem was that the banquet department hours are too seasonal and sporadic. I learned a lot about supervising and managing many personalities and dynamics all at once, as well as a lot of corporate billing and logistics. Long late nights and early mornings were tough, but the frenetic pace and movement combined with the interdepartmental team mentality were great.

Pros

Free food, fair pay, lively team, and luxury environment.

Cons

$3000 deductible healthcare, sporadic hours

Springhill Suites Marriott

Hospitality is no easy feat. This industry has taught me endless incomparable principles, both in business and ethics. With this power, I have built myself my own empire. You realize how much control you have and how using it to create an efficient, professional, and healthy work environment can contribute to your success as well as the business. This industry presents many challenging situations that will test your problem solving skills, your ability to interact with others, mathematically, but mostly your patience. As a professional, I am proud to see where I am at now and look towards my future. I have been given ample education within my work environment. This has led to two promotions in less than a year and a half. I must give credit where it is due. My team of associates have aided in my vast growth. Our relationships are similar to that of the President and his congress. We check and balance our efforts, decisions, verbiage, ethics, and actions. My team does look up to me as an example and I am always having to question my every decision before I take action. It can be difficult at times, but I always encourage my team to be the executive in their own decision making. A captain can't sail a ship by himself. My most valued lesson is perspective. I have applied the definition of perspective in every aspect of my professional life as well as my personal. In this field, you must look at any and all situations in many perspectives; how you ponder something and observe every angle. It has proven to be my post powerful tool. I apply it most when -

Great Benefits

Great place to work during busy tourism season in the local area. Less busy during slow season so hours are very slim. Tasks are routine and don't change much. Great place to get a start into the hospitality business.

A team effort work environment that is the product of management

The best part of my job is that everyday is completely different. I've learned much of a hotel success is due from management. All my coworkers are really positive and good people.

Pros

I've really enjoyed working with all management and staff.

Very busy property

Busy property with 179 rooms. High demand, sometimes pressure but, it comes with the territory. Great team to work with. Would be to reach the full service status of working in a bigger property.

Pros

Great working team

Needs more team members
