Associate (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – May 2, 2016
The company as a whole is a great company to work for. If you end up at a property where the management is strictly for themselves and not for the company, you could end up with a job you hate going to. My years of experience on the job has given me skills to use on other jobs. I never turned down any opportunities to grow in the company, but was always looked over for moving into different positions in the company.
Saint Louis Marriott West is a terrible company to work for.
Front Office Employee (Former Employee) – Marriott West, Town and Country Missouri – April 30, 2016
This is one of the worst companies I've worked for, and I've worked a few jobs. They don't pay much and work you half to death. When you ask for Management to help, they don't. They are useless. They go through so many employees and management. They're now started to lose their longtime faithful dedicated employees, that should tell you something. Director of Human Resources is terrible, she has NO clue as to what she's doing. Stay as far a way from this one as you possibly can, you have been warned!

Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – July 31, 2016
you come across all types of people and you learn something new from each and every guess that stays at your hotel. the hardest part of the job is when things aren't in order and you get to work to start your shift and you have no work supplies.
Hostess/Server (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – May 3, 2016
The Ritz Carlton St Thomas is actually where loving hospitality came into play for me!! Started off as a server assistant and worked my way up!! I then decided to make a change in life which is how I ended up at the Marriott World Center in Orlando.. Working at the World Center was got a bit boring for me due to the fact that I started as a hostess (not the job for me) At both Marriotts the coworkers were all like family.
Housekeeping Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mukilteo, WA – July 12, 2016
this place is a franchise. the company who owns this place doesn't want to pay workers what they deserve. The girls work super hard and during summer it's aweful, long hours, no family time, you have no life and paychecks are weak. I stayed because I had an awesome team and we made it through.
Reservation agent (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 28, 2016
Co workers not very friendly no morale very low paying for the job that I have had for so many years for such a big company.Many managers have left the company after being there for at least 15 years of service .The benefits are good but, very high premiums.Other call centers in the area pay at least $ 3.00 more to start.I have only one manager that is just fabulous.If you get promoted you will only get 30 or 40 cents not enough to support a family on your own.
i used to work at the global sales office and the reason i say used to is because due to the poor working environment i resigned months back. when i first started working at this office, the management seemed to really know what they were doing and care about employee satisfaction and performance. that quickly change in the course of a year and a half. the working conditions quickly declined. there isnt room for growth because agents are promoted based on favoritism. and i wasted my time while i was there.
management doesnt have a clue as to how to manage.
you are only a number and metrics at this place. your well being family health or emergencies are of no concern to this job!!!! this is not a good place to work. the managers aren't even accessible because they typically work from home out of state!!!!! awful place no windows terrible people no room for advancement.
Housekeeping Supervisor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 25, 2016
Supervised a staff of 18 people in a 242 room property. Made sure everyone knew SOP - Standard Operating Procedures of hotel. Inspected housekeepers rooms and released vacant ready rooms to front desk in timely manner. The challenging part of the job is getting the housekeepers to finish at 5pm no later than 5:30. So whoever is behind, i would send that person help or i would help them complete rooms. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping the housekeepers clean their rooms and show them what they need to work on.

Such a great place to learn how to work with people. Well run and kept to the highest standards. It is always about the customer experience.

Head Host/Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Newark, NJ – May 22, 2016
Busy hotel restaurant, never a dull moment. Cultivated the pallet made many new friends, met interesting people and celebrities. Learning new foods and wines was the best part of the job. Co-workers were a joy to work with. It was a pleasure being part of such a great company.
Server/Waiter/Host (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – July 15, 2016
Great place to work. I love it here. I'm still working here and I love the people that I work with and the people that come in. Everyone is friendly and they work well with my life and school schedule. I work in the restaurant in the hotel. I come in, set up my station and do my side work and prepare for the shift. I serve customers, take their orders, serve them drinks, bring their food, run their payments, then clean up and leave for the night. Hardest part is our business is heavily affected by the convention center across the street. So when we're full I make good money and business is good. However, when there are no conventions during the off season it can be very slow. Overall it's a great place to work. You can transfer to different positions not just in the food and beverage department but others in the hotel as well. You can always pick up a shift somewhere if you're not making enough money. Good part-time job.

Food and Beverage Supervisor (Former Employee) – Washington, DC 20005 – June 25, 2016
I love dealing with the guest to make guest happy and associate. Working environment is good and happy place to work with. The hardest part is when management don't get as one and do what they think is good for them self and not for the many.
