Fitness Center Attendant (Former Employee) – Naples, FL – December 17, 2017
I worked for the Ritz Carlton in the spa department. There are peaks and lows to how busy the spa is during the year which effects hours/pay. Slower period resulted in pay cuts due to low occupancy. Also less hours without room to work lateral service (working in other departments to make up for hours lost due to low occupancy). Love the company culture though! :)
Free lunches, benefits
Low occupancy, pay cuts due to slow periods in the year
Property Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Lahaina, HI – December 16, 2017
It was a typical hotel resort atmosphere. Constant changes & goals to exceed guests' expectations. During my last few months, management was poor however in the past, I had wonderful experiences with previous leaders.

it was a very difficult position to be successful in, struggled with the constant criticizing, this company needs to focus more on not expecting so much that the employing can no way complete the tasks given and be reasonable
Server (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – December 15, 2017
When I worked for this company it was originally a Starwood property and had just been bought by Marriott a few months before I left. The money, the staff, the benefits were AMAZING. There was ALWAYS opportunity for over time, and they were great for approving vacation time.Once Marriott took over and new management came in everything changed. We were barely getting breaks, management stopped coming around anc checking on us, and if we were busy instead of helping us, they were often adding to the rush by eating in the restaurant and acting like VIP guests.

I believe marriott is a very good place to work at if you like trying and experiencing different job opportunities. The hospitality business moves people around by their skills and knowledge of the company.
I learned to become a better team member and leader. Enjoyed working with fellow employees. My day was sometimes long especially around the holiday but enjoyed it because most customers where really nice. But once I came sick I had to find something else to do.

S. University Park Ave. - Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Mount Pleasant, MI – December 13, 2017
-Management was very passive aggressive and uncaring -People left so frequently that you would get in trouble if they found out you were looking for a different job (which is mostly illegal) -Given very short period of time to complete rather large tasks and verbally reprimanded if even 2 minutes over -Had a very "Every man for himself" type of feel with coworkers and management alike
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Hilliard, OH – December 13, 2017
It was a job that I didn't enjoy very much. Some of the other employees caused drama with others. When working you would have a crazy amount of rooms to clean and people wouldn't clean all of their and leave them for other people to do. They liked to pick favorites there. It just wasn't a good atmosphere to work in.
Drama, long hours, picking up other employees slack
Cook 3 (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – December 12, 2017
its a great place to work. there are many great people you learn and grow from. what I enjoy the most is the relations you gain not only from your coworkers, but the guest as well. you gain life long relationships.
Director of Corporate Sales (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – December 12, 2017
This was a management position and my first job out of college. Great training but the wrong managerial role for me. I am meant to be front of the line building relationships and strategic partnerships.
