CHIEF ENGINEER (Former Employee) – Del Rey, CA – September 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.
Front Office Manager (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 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.
Breakfast Attendant (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 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
non management employees are wonderful. Decent starting salary
management has no clue what they are doing and will blame those that actually know and do their job
Manager (Current Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – July 18, 2017
Always more training. with no enough people to do the job. Or the lack of training. The work environment itself is great. We do employee appreciation and birthday events. But the compensation is lacking very much
Bistro Supervisor (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – March 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.
Group Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Houma, LA – February 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.
Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee) – Mount Laurel, NJ – February 14, 2017
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
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – June 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
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!!
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Troy, MI – April 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.
Nothing really you can find a better company
low salary, the lowest in the market, 2% raise annually or $0.25 if you are hourly
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Garden Grove, CA – February 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!
Able to learn as much as you want if you are willing to learn.
Low pay compared to market area. Limited opportunities in Southern California.
General Manager (Former Employee) – texas – January 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!
Associate Regional Director of Sales (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – July 13, 2015
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.
Banquet Server (Former Employee) – Palm Beach, FL – July 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!!
