Poductive but fun hotel to work in.
CHIEF ENGINEER (Former Employee) –  Del Rey, CASeptember 22, 2017
Great location, the drive is long because of traffic on the 405, to expensive to live near Marina Del Rey, GM is a really good person and boss, the hotel is bigger then it looks from the outside, but if you don't want ocean water you can go relax in a salt soothing pool and hot tub.

You cannot believe the attitudes
Maintenance /security (Former Employee) –  Portsmouth, NHSeptember 14, 2017
All in all...dont bother.....it will be a waste of your time and remove any sanity left. They will say one thing and do another. Ask you to do something and then deny ever saying it.
Pros
Nice Island
Cons

Corp and GM need improvement
Front Office Manager (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 22, 2017
The company lacks when it come to giving the employee what they need to run there properties. They are out of touch in what is going on at the properties verse what is going on at corporate. The employees are always busy. When corporate or regional managers come to visit, they only speak with the General Manager and Sales. The money makers. They are not worried about anyone else. The only good thing about working here is the employee relationships.
Pros
co workers, location
Cons
no lunches, pay, corporate management, long hours

great job but horrible management
Breakfast Attendant (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VAJuly 19, 2017
Management is not knowledgeable on the day to day operation of any given department. Does not listen to workers. Blames others for their own short comings. Refuses to do what is needed to pass inspections. 90 percent turnover of employees in 5 months. seems if you do your job and say what needs to be done you are fired.
Marriott is wonderful to work for,just not this particular manager
Pros
non management employees are wonderful. Decent starting salary
Cons
management has no clue what they are doing and will blame those that actually know and do their job

Great place to work if you like seeing new faces.
Bistro Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXMarch 9, 2017
It's a great place to work if you like meeting people from different places and hearing their stories. My location has a high military presence so it's cool for me. However our GM is a bit of a micromanager so it can be difficult at times.

Growing pains
Group Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Houma, LAFebruary 22, 2017
Island Hospitality is one of the fast growing property management company in the Hotel Industry. I loved working for this company and the only negative thing I could say is the company was going through a growth spurt and lots of responsibilities fell on the very few at the very top. Overall, this is a great company to work for.
Pros
Big company with great values
Cons
Growing pains

The Hyatt house hires inexperienced employees to manage the hotel ! They offer you full time ,when it's slow in the winter they cuts your hours , mind you you are classified full time , so you are forced to pay for insurance even though you only have 16 hours a week . Stay away bad management Hyatt house

tough workplace
Front Office Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Shelton, CTNovember 30, 2016
get ready to surrender your life and take whatever you can get for it. The more work load you can handle the more they will give you, just don't expect any monetary compensation for your efforts.
Pros
middle management lazy
Cons
no breaks, time off difficult, poor corporate support

Love This Company
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) –  Naples, FLJuly 5, 2016
Everyone is like family. I would have never left if it wasn't for a family emergency.

They respect their employees and the benefits are awesome. If you need assistance in any department there is always someone there with a helping hand.
Pros
Respect
Cons
Too Much Paperwork

Company trying to keep up with the big players.
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) –  Princeton, NJJune 13, 2016
Company seems to be scrambling and their policies are a little odd. Most of the coworkers were great to work with but some you had to watch your back with they tend to stab you in the back. Overall I'd look else where

Unethical, unprofessional, inexperienced.
Sales (Former Employee) –  XXXXXJune 6, 2016
Stay away from this company. Too many inexperienced VP's, Exec VP's and Regional VP's. They claim they develop and promote from within but you will only hear from them when they are getting pressure from ownership. They are reactive instead of proactive. No ethics!!
Pros
None
Cons
The list is too long!!

Unprofessional
Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Troy, MIApril 20, 2016
This company only focus in acquiring hotel to make it seems they have a big portafolio when in reality are buying old hotels buildings. The hotel get a mini facelift and on their way they go. As long as your hotel is making money you are ok, that's all it's matter. No professionalism of any kind by the GM, no follow thru the brand standards only when they know QA is coming other than that nothing work accordingly, the guest suffers for the lack of good service compared to the competition around your hotel. Very low pay, no advancement. You can find a better company to work for.
Pros
Nothing really you can find a better company
Cons
low salary, the lowest in the market, 2% raise annually or $0.25 if you are hourly

Great Company
Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Garden Grove, CAFebruary 14, 2016
I had the opportunity to learn a lot here; ranging from other departments, other manager positions, and other hotel brands.

Great opportunities to travel and visit other properties.

Most of your experience will depend on your GM. My GM was great and let managers fully run and manage their departments. He was not a micro-manager and allowed us to try new ideas. He was always looking to change and improve so we could provide a better experience for our guests.

Your GM determines your experience!
Pros
Able to learn as much as you want if you are willing to learn.
Cons
Low pay compared to market area. Limited opportunities in Southern California.

Unethical company do not work fo this company
General Manager (Former Employee) –  texasJanuary 15, 2016
This company bought out Hilton. They "cleaned house" with zero disregard of people's livlihoods! Most had been stable with Hilton for over 4 years. They are unethical and expect managers to look the other way when things are done against brand standards and/OR against federal laws. They are very sneaky and have people apply for current jobs that are already filled on their websites in other states that are hiring so no-one ever knows at the property level. THEY CUT SECURITY FOR ALL HOTELS TO SAVE MONEY THEY ARE REQUESTING THAT NO-ONE SAY ANYTHING.. IN THE MEANTIME CUSTOMERS ROOMS AND CARS ARE GETTING VANDALIZED AND THEY DON'T CARE! Corporate is a joke young kid's that are complete morons, making huge salaries, mandating people's future. Get out before its too late very CULT like culture..also several lawsuits against them!
Pros
nothing

Very tough company to work for in terms of expectations of what you need to know and do, but as a result, the company does teach you a lot of skills that will put you a step ahead in the game in the future.

I liked my job at the Marriott
Banquet Server (Former Employee) –  Palm Beach, FLJuly 10, 2015
Marriott was a very good company to work for. I worked in the Banquets department.I helped to set up and break down for events. I also served guests at scheduled banquets, trainings, weddings, etc.
I was very disappointed when I was dropped from the schedule because of a lack of hours. The best thing about this job was the pay!!
