Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Rancho Cordova, CA – January 9, 2013
This company was amazing to work for and the management was great. The only issue I ever had was with the older housekeepers. I think they felt threatened because I could clean my rooms faster and they looked cleaner. We received free lunch when we had safety meetings (Chipotle, usually). The pay was good. Sometimes we would have 20+ rooms, which was overwhelming, but that didn't always happen.
short on housekeepers so we were pushed to max, certain number of minutes to clean rooms
PM Guest Service Representative (Former Employee) – Greenville, SC – November 14, 2016
The company itself has decent benefits. Free life insurance after 90 days and your PTO (2hrs for every 40 hours) accures after this time. The pay is absolutely awful and it's sad that you have to beg for money. The only upside is if you like to travel the room rates at some of the nicer chains can be very decent. As far as management (GM & Assistant GM) is concerned at the Courtyard Greenville Haywood Mall they are racist, biased and extremely unprofessional. They will belittle you and make you feel as though you aren't a valued employee even when you're going above and beyond for them. I have never in all my years come across such heartless and ungrateful people. I hope that Marriott cleans up that mess for the sake of their brand.
Hospitality, and customer service has always been a need in society.
Manager of Events (Former Employee) – Kingsgate Conference Center Cincinnati Ohio – October 25, 2016
I have been in the hotel industry off and on since I got out of high school it's truly my passion I love it, and with Marriott International I was able to advance a great deal over the years, and at the point when I resigned I had interviewed for a position that I had been working in Arizona at a resort due to the Manager of Events had quit, and they needed someone to fill the position for a while, and it was the same position I held but at a larger hotel. The salary at the hotel in Arizona paid 98k plus bonus, and I was forced to resign because my assistant general manager didn't like the fact that I would be making more money than him without a college degree, and he made things hard , and was trying to terminate my employment with the company so I resigned. I'm not bitter I feel the change of employment to Rite of Passage gave me a better outlook on life.
Host/Operator/Barista/Server (Current Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – February 21, 2017
The Renaissance VINOY is a historic hotel run by marriott international. Unfortunately their methods of employee value, and keeping the positivity alive at this resort for their employees is at a slow death. The employees are miserable and stuck in an endless repetitive circle with barely any acknowledgement for their successful guest intereactions. Any other Marriott run resort would provide amazing acknowledgement and awards to those who showed hard earned effort. For the Vinoy however, this place is lacking the effort of growth, postive reinforcement, and appreciation for those employed there.
Not all the resorts value their employees as most should
Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – February 19, 2017
Working for Marriott has provided me with the opportunity to meet people from all over and who also have obtained jobs in the field I'm studying. Talking to people about their past experiences, and asking their opinions on how I should go about experiencing new opportunites
Great benefits, good pay. some advancement
Union hotel, which has a lot of restrictions which can limit your advancement
Guest Service Representative (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – August 8, 2016
I have worked at the Residence Inn Marriott for over 3 years. When I started we were Marriott managed and a little less than a year in we became franchise. Marriott managed hotels offer excellent benefits packages that somewhat make up for the low pay. Franchise hotels do not. The culture is great, although I would say that it probably varies quite a bit from property to property depending on management. The pay (at least at my property) is not great. They have not given raises with the increase in minimum wage and therefore new hires are offered more than long termers...not ok. Management has been great in working with my school schedule in addition to my internship schedule when I needed an internship for school. Love my coworkers, although I'm sure each team is a bit different. I will say that you learn a lot working in the hospitality industry.
Productive Workplace that enabled rofessional & Personall growth

Guest Services (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – July 20, 2016
Terrible, rude management; kitchen employees rarely ever wear gloves and dont understand food safety which is disgusting; employees would touch raw chicken then ready to eat food with bare hands, not washing in between; ROACHES in the kitchen and management did NOTHING about it; not much room to advance, pay raises few and far between; bad job security, always felt like I was being watched closely for any mistake I made and like I was going to be let go at any time because of it; nobody ever listens to what you say or what you need. Don't do it, it will only stress you out beyond belief and put you in an extremely negative (and also roach infested) environment.
Some good coworkers
Roaches, people who dont understand food safety, rude management, low pay, hostile environment
Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Killeen, TX – January 2, 2017
I love the work and great many of the guest, but in the 3 years I have worked for Marriott Town Place Suites i received only one .25 cent raise and can not afford benefits. a beautiful place to work wish for a little more to offer for housekeeping just can not live off the pay.
Worked with sales force team auditing requests for new business sales, and coordinating transitions of current business acquisition, divestitures
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Bethesda, MD – September 26, 2016
A typical day consisted of responding to sales forces team leaders regarding vetting their requests for new business, as well as working closely with them on current business transitions with acquisitions, divestures, and business moves. It was a high pressure position with the constant changes and deadlines in order to meet sales goals and objectives. I had a great team of people to work with.
Housekeeping Supervisor (Former Employee) – North Wales, PA – December 27, 2016
The Marriott is a great place to work it's productive and it keeps you busy so that your day go by fast . The staff is very friendly and is always willing to help out their teammates. The benefits package is good also but because I live and work in 2 different counties they take out 2 sets of taxes which is really a lot
Call center environment, got to deal with lots of guests, and many computer systems
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – September 24, 2016
Marriott is a great company that values their employees. I enjoyed my coworkers but being in a call center there isn't too much time for talking with them besides breaks. Marriott did a good job at having events outside for us to mingle and get up out of the chair.
Housekeeper/ Bistro Attendant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 10, 2016
I must say working here was not what I thought it would be. I wanted to quit at first because the housekeeping department was being overworked. However, working a whole summer with no a/c and elevators breaking every other day I still stuck it out. This is the hardest working department and the most underpaid. Bistro department was ok. This department could have been excellent if management did not lack proper training and communication skills. The manager and supervisor are too close that it effects the employees and the business. If they don't like you, you are retaliated against.
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Avon, IN – June 28, 2016
Had a schedule of projects that needed to be accomplished first and daily preventative maintenance jobs as well. I learned the inner workings how a well run hotel was operated. The hotel I worked at had an outstanding management staff that was very professional and had the well being of its staff and clientel. Our staff was very well trained and took pride in the performance of there responsibilities and the hotel. I believe the hardest part of my job was unexpected break downs. Also my most enjoyable part of the job was the feeling I got of overcoming an unexpected chore that completed in a minimum of time.
Benefits that come with working for Marriott
I can not think of anything. This company really cares for it's staff

Costumer Service Representative (on-call) (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – December 5, 2016
Marriott is a huge company. Their philosophy is if they treat their employees nicely, the employees will treat the guest nicely. It is true. Lots of room to grow and advance or you can do the same job for 30 years, its up to you.
