Pros: fun and fast paced, family atmosphere.
Cons: mostly seasonal work.
I worked at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Orange Beach AL. My job was to do the hotel laundry (cleaning all the sheets, towels, blankets for the guests). It doesn't sound very glamorous, but, this was by far my favorite job. Marriott is such a good company, every morning they have what we called "huddle" and it is just a was that they start the day, they would recognize birthdays, have a pep talk, discuss the daily agenda, etc. Everybody seemed to hate it most days, but honestly I think it was a key part of making each day work and I think more companies should have some program like this.
Everybody worked well together, during spring/summer business would pick up like crazy and housekeeping/laundry would become a never ending workout. We would have about 30 more people hired, and that sounds crazy but every year it was like a whole new family. During the winter, hours were cut severely, but it was still worth it, just to work in an environment like that.
Overall I really enjoyed working here. I was young and made the stupid mistake of quitting (I had two jobs at the time and my supervisor at the Inn was pressuring me to quit my second, so I quit from there instead.) If I could go back I would.
