Pretty average

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A typical day consisted of greeting and assisting guests check-in while also handling phone calls and general back office work. Guest experience will obviously depend on location, so keep that in mind. Well-treated guests will return the favor, although some feel as if the benefits the loyalty program provides have decreased in qualify over time.

Pros

Discounted rooms

Cons

Guest experience varies

The Westin in the Woodlands

It was a good company to work for and opportunities to move up. Management could have used some work in the front office but it was a really good job to gain some much needed experience

Pros

Hours. Team. Flexibility. Job requirements

Good experience overall

The managers in my location always listened and worked around my schedule very well, always helpful as well. I had a fairly easy job and I would definitely return. The pay is ok but could be better

productive and fast pace but also fun.

Each day started differently which is why i loved it because it was never boring. i learned how to use fosse and make reservations, learn different things from each guest. Marriott has a relaxing and rich culture.

Excellent work environment

Working at the front desk, I checked in and out about 300 people a day and I loved every minute of it. I learned about the MARSHA and PMS operating systems and developed a strong understanding of both. I had a great support group with my leaders and my peers. Definitely one of the best places I'v worked. The job was challenging and rewarding and no two days were ever the same.

Best place to work!!!

Friendly, happy, fun and safe place to work. A typical day at work start smiling and saying hi to everyone. Marriott is a place with continuous and mandatory trainings. I learned so much with coworkers, managers and guests from around the world, diferents cultures including exotics food, music and languages. Hardest part was not really hard because the busy season was good for overtime.. Best part was Holiday season....great decorations, music and food!!!

Pros

Company benefits

Cons

Busy season but great overtime

Fast pace work environment

Typical work day starts at 6am by printing out present day and next days flow sheets that contain all the information for equipment in each meeting room, walk around each meeting room to ensure all equipment is in room and client is helped out using the equipment provided 70,000sqft of meeting space is distributed between two staff members, one supervisor and one manager. Once all meetings have been checked we regroup and inform the staff of tasks for the day. Co-workes must rely on each other to run a successful operation. Morning crew relies on the night staff to set all the rooms accordingly to ensure morning staff is able to assist clients with any issues that may arise. The hardest part of the job is when ever a meeting pops up with extensive AV equipment requirements because if rental equipment needs to be order or additional labor needs to be called in you have to rely on a third party for last minute service. What I enjoy the most about working at this property is being able to have direct contact with my clients and being able to see everything come together after months or weeks of planning.

Pros

great company culture, company perks

Cons

Minimal room for promotion in Audio Visual department.

long hours

The site manager position was a good job. However the work life balance was almost non existent. being scheduled by regional managers to work 16 hours a day six days a week. and oft a few hours on the 7th day didn't leave much room for balance.

Great team

Lots of teamwork across all departments in the hotel. We seem to get stuck in the same shift. The leadership is always available and solicits feedback. Often it seems as though nothing changes.

Pros

Cons

Good work ethic

Everyone loves what they do and does it to the best of there abilities. Happy to be apart of this team! I love the long days and appreciate the short ones as well. The hardest part is remembering the recipes because we change up the food so often.

Life at the Marriott

My coworkers where the best part of my day, we had fun and we worked very hard. The only real complaint I had about the job was the scheduling. There would be nights that are always busy and just one person. Which wouldn't be to big of a deal if we were talking about a smaller business. When we are talking about a hotel that means, typically, over 100 rooms (138 at the hotel I was employed at) that you have to check in, run items to room, fix any mistakes...etc. It's very hard to make everyone happy, especially if there is a rush. Other then that, I loved my hotel.

Pros

Meeting interesting people

Cons

Being alone on busy nights
