Awful Workplace, and Poor Management
Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 3, 2016
My location #1639 at Marriott Chicago O'Hare had MANY issues...
Immediately when I started, the Director went on vacation, and was mostly on mini vacations throughout the duration of my time there. When he was in the office, he was never actually working (mostly socializing and eating candy, with Assistant Director). We couldn't count on him for anything!!!
Sales Manager was even worse. She played "Pass the Buck" constantly, only sold & detailed 10% of the business that came through, everything else was dumped on my desk, and I mean EVERYTHING!!! She came into work 2 hours late each day and left an hour early- her normal work day consisted of socializing, surfing the web, and micromanaging the F out of me- I couldn't even use the bathroom without getting questioned!
My days, on the other hand, consisted of being overworked and underpaid. I had to work 12-13 hour shifts, 5 days a week, just to keep up with the workload. If my volume was lower, due to leaving at normal time, I would get lectured by both the Director and Sales Manager- what a joke!!!
I felt like an indentured slave, while working with PSAV, and still suffer from sleep deprivation and what seems to be ptsd. All of this happened from working there, while others were allowed to take naps on the job, watch Netflix movies, partake in online shopping, play on Tinder, Facebook, Stock Trading websites, etc...
When reaching out to superiors for help, the problem got worse!!!
Overall, I'd say it's a SHOTTY place to work. Run for your life!!!
Free lunch from hotel, and the health benefits were great!
No reprieve; overworked and underpaid. They believe in micromanagement.
