No two days are the same

I enjoy that everyday is an adventure. Even if you are dealing with a long term repeat customer each event has a different challenge. There is also the yearly updates to the hotel building or services that add to the diversity of the day to day.

Pros

Free Lunch and discounted parking

Marriott is the best hospitality company in the world

Marriott is the best place to work. It’s family and I have over 25 years working for the company. Even though I am furloughed now, the company has done right by me.

It’s not what you know it’s who you know.

All companies have office politics and Marriott is a great company for which to work in spite of that issue. Expect to do the work of 3 people and be compensated as one person and expect to be passed over for promotion unless you are related to or romantically involved with a superior. Hard work is appreciated but not often rewarded. If you are good at your job they will keep you there and not promote you. The best workers end up leaving because of this.

Restaurant group located in the USVI on Marriott property, beautiful view and clients/staff from all around the world!

I was the person responsible for booking and executing all events on property. I worked out of the out main restaurants office on Marriott property. We had a team of 4 front of house managers on staff including myself for 2 restaurants and the all events. I would work Mon-Fri. 9-5 unless events were taking place, in that case I worked around 12 hours; before, during and after each event. I would respond to event inquiries, preform site inspections, make regular personal contact with all hotel concierges, DMC's and Marriott event planners to generate new business leads. I would lead each client through the estimate and contract process and handle all payments and keep track of all vendor payments and commissions. I would also communicate with the head chefs, food and beverage director, and general manager all details for each event as well as all event staff. I would be present for each event to handle any problems that may arise and be the main point of contact for any and all requests during the event.

Pros

Flexable shedule, rewarding, family environment, freedom for creativity

Cons

seaking more room to progress and more stability, worked as soul person in events department

Pros

good benefits including hotel discounts, career growth, appreciation

Cons

long hours and average pay
