My immediate boss was so very easy to work for. Our team was one of the most efficient teams in the building. We all helped each other and kept each other up to date on what ever project we had.

Stressful

Unrealistic expectations. Managers with hidden agendas. Executive team plays political games. Fun is not to be had. The only thing that was worth working there was the discounts. I learned how to use Marriott systems but was also taught that people truly do not have your best interest at heart. The pay is not enough to sustain living expenses.

Fun Place

I enjoyed interacting with the customers. I would have liked to have gone further but I would have had to take a pay cut to go to another position to get to where I wanted to go. I couldn't afford that.

Managers have it tough.

Managers have to work crazy hours and really don't get paid enough. Hourly associates don't have it so bad but everyone who is good usually gets pushed into a managerial role.

Nice environment to gain experience

Good place to work for students during sixth form or uni, flexible working hours and a friendly environment. Pay is better than you would get at most places which is good.

Work Hard, No Reward

Expectations from management are unfair, progression is non-existent to hard workers the only way to progress with the company is through making friends in the right places. I have been moved around departments whenever they want because of the lack of hours. Support from management for progression again is completely non-existent. You work crazy hours, in my case some days 13+ hours with as little as 8/9 hours in between shifts. Co-workers at the base level are nice enough some friendly faces. The most enjoyable part of working for the Marriott is clocking out at the end of the day.

Pros

Pays the bills

Cons

Everything else.
