constant drive to believe and courage you to stay with the company

Its just a typical day that can = devastating moments. one mistake and you are out. lots of training is needed.Company is not reasonable. workplace culture has its own government. a lot of departments like to point the finger at other departments. .

Pros

free lunches

Cons

Be careful watch your image it means everything. You are pre judged.

Management 😑

If you want to be pulled 6 different ways by 3 different managers this is the place for you. Feeling incompetent by a higher up is pretty much a normal thing.

Pros

Easy work

Cons

Rude bosses

Demanding place

Great benefits. But they overwork you . In my department, you work for 2 departments and they switch you back and forth. Great pay. Very overwhelming when it is busy.

Not great pay for hospitality

Some managers are not trained on how to speak to associate’s. Which causes negativity with staff. And some managers think to highly of themselves. So advancement with culinary and being a manager which is salary is not so good because there is hardly any openings because current staff stays at there jobs until they die or need to quit. The sales team and front desk can advance because it’s constant turn over.

Pros

Free Lunch and Great Benefits, Great General Manager and Assistant GM

Cons

Pay for Parking, Culinary Management Horrible

Bartender, fun fast placed to work for summer

Worked multiple different departments within the hotel, mostly around the restaurant. Loved this place for summer time, fast paced, tons and tons of people. If you love fast paced and somewhat crazy work environments, this is the place.

Pros

Good money, benefits, not so bad hours

Cons

Constant management change, favoritism but there’s always that

Great Pay, Overbesring Managers

The company is a great one to work for if you get could managers if not it will be miserable because they will shift any guest blame to you to save themselves. They didn’t treat their employees right during Covid causing many to lose their jobs or be furloughed and when brought back given no hours.

Pros

Free Healthcare, Hotel Discounts, High Pay

Cons

Managers will shift blame to you

Management doesn't encourage learning

Management keeps people at bay by not teaching and encouraging advancement. You are treated like a child most of the time, despite if you have a college education.

dont work here

i work at the one next to the airport in san diego ca for a year now and long story short dont get your hope up on getting a raise after working there for a year cause thats a lie they will over work you to the point where you wanna cry cause at least 3 of my coworkers have cried out of pure stress cause again they love to over work you and they always never have enough people working there to ease the workflow they will threaten to fire or write you up for not finish all your room (as a housekeeper) even tho they give you so many rooms to do in so little time that its f*cking impossible and the managers love to blame housekeeping for everything JUST DONT EVEN WASTE YOUR TIME WORKING FOR THIS COMPANY PERIOD

Pros

free health care and free stuff if the guest leave anything once they check out and tips from guest

Cons

Great environment to learn different areas and advance, great staff

This is the 4th property I have worked at and each is unique. A lot of local pharma business at this hotel so not a lot of family business like I have experienced at the other hotels that I worked at. La Jolla UTC area has many restaurants and shopping areas which are essential for when a quick purchase is necessary. A lot of the hourly staff have been here many years so it feels like family.

Pros

Free meals, free laundry, learn from different areas

Cons

Some long hour days and nights

Great place to work

In my short time at Marriott, I can say so far this is one of the better companies I’ve worked at. They truly value employees, which makes me that much more motivated to do a good job at work.

Pros

Cons

no healthcare

Taxing workplace with flexible scheduling

The atmosphere during work was very reliant on the type of customers and the business of the day. As with all customer service jobs, the type of customer can make or break the day. In my experience, the front desk team was very amicable and forthcoming to new members, but it was difficult to find positions for advancement.

Pros

Free food during break

Cons

Demanding culture

Marriott in general is a good company

Marriott international is a good company. The Sheraton hotel and marina was not so great. It seemed management was always battling the employees. Managers enjoyed writing up employees who do there job, it was strange.
