Yeah I got a call out of Atlanta from a rep, but missed it as said. I only have the directions to the Training class along with the dress code and schedule given from the Store Manager. Are you Paying for your Ticket or the company? or did they arrange all of that? I will be renting a vehicle for the commute.

she said the only thing i need is a credit card for incidentals at the hotel. Other than that, she will make all the arrangements. I wonder if you could ask to fly since it is 3 hours from your home. She also mentioned the 42 dollar a day debit card we get for food. You should call and ask her about the driving though, unless you just don't wanna fly.

I will be driving down. Since we will be in training M-F. and off on the weekends (i think). I will ask about flying there for the training, when she calls back. My original location was for Charlotte on May 9th and that was changed. I was told By The Manager if there are not enough to fill the class. We can be switched to another location.

Gave her a call and we finally talked after so many Attempts of trying to reach her. Correct the 42.00 card will be given on Monday and Our company Phones will be issued during training. We must be there on Sunday or the Reservation will be cancelled. She asked for my Shirt size. Funny never mentioned Flying until I did. But I will still drive she said to keep track of my mileage. And she will be sending an Email No later than the end of business day on Friday with the Hotel details and etc. Are you taking a shuttle from the airport or taxi to get to the Location? Also Yes to a credit or debit card for incidentals at the hotel.

Cool, exactly what she told me! As far as how I will get from the airport to the hotel, I am not sure, it is about 30 miles. She did say that she would set up the "transportation" for me. I guess I will find out when I get my email from her. I will update you when I get my email. Glad you got ahold of her.

Wow, didn't know the airport was that far I guess taking a taxi is out of the question lol. I will be looking out for that email I will be departing from here on Sunday morning to drive down. Just wanted the freedom to be able to drive and see the area since we will be off on the weekends and such. But yes keep me posted.

Based on when I told her I will be renting a vehicle. (without even stating it's my choice and out of my own pocket) She quickly said we do not cover that reason being of insurance issues. So she maybe looking to see if they can provide shuttle service to the Hotel or Get a representative there

Correct that was my reason to Rent a vehicle so I won't be stuck in the room lol. I would like to see the area and such and would like to eat at other places instead of next to the hotel. Did she tell you if this is paid training? and that you have to report to your store manager once returning with those forms that you had to complete online (the w2 info) and may I ask which position did you apply for?

I applied for Sales Support Rep, and yes training is paid. I just wonder how they are gonna get people to and from the airport. I am looking at prices for rental cars now. Just in case. I, as well do not wanna be stuck in the hotel either. I could just drive my own car down if that is the case. As far as completing forms, she said nothing about that.

I applied for the same as well. And was told by the Store Managers that a lot of stuff during the training will not apply to us. And when we get to the Store we are assigned to will be a whole other ball game. I got good rates at CarRental.com

I saw someone posted on here that they were given a rental car for training. I wonder if that is right. I guess all I can do is wait and hope to make friends in training and maybe I can bum a ride to dinner some nights. I will also check out the car rental site just in case

You really did get a good deal! I can't say mine was that good. I guess it costs more down in S Fl. At least I will get to drive around and see things and not be stuck.

As far as the phone, I have heard people talk about that on here. Wonder what it will be.

I was looking at my flight info and noticed that I leave 515pm on the 20th. I guess that means we will get out early on Friday.

I booked from the MCO (Orlando) airport usually it's cheaper at the airport Better deals and Make sure your a member with whatever company not to mention. Checking for online discounts and Make other reservations (just to lock them in) just in case you find a cheaper deal. And with the Phone I was told at the end of the training session we will get them. Not sure if it would be a Flagship phone or what.

that is good to know! I will probably do the same, I hear the hotel has good breakfast buffet too for Monday morning. That way I can eat well for dinner!

I also dunno why my location keep changing on here.. I am not in Michigan!

Yeah I always read reviews about Hotel Properties. The Residence Marriott Brand has the full breakfast in the Morning. (crowds around the waffle maker lol) hot meals and cold cereal and fruits, yogurt and such. So that will save on the 42.00 they give on the Debit cards.

Did you set your Location in your settings

It is weird, when I am at work it comes up Michigan, when I am home, it comes up right. Oh well.

I dunno if its just me, but I have already checked on what restaurants are in Boca. I have a few places in mind that I plan to go to! I love to eat out!

Lol yes they are going to put you on the side where the tracks are. Funny Some Hotel Reps do that to people who are there for free, or with discounts. And will look at the guest crazy if they have a complaint :)...I may just cook myself since the room has the stove and such. And not blow 42.00 a day but I may check out a place or two. Now if they Had Ocean Prime, Benihana, or The French Laundry that will be another story.

Yea, I like the fact that there is a kitchen in the room too. I will laugh if you get the room by the train tracks and I don't! They should treat us pretty well since we are with AT&T. I already called and asked them about how much they were gonna hold for incidentals, he said $20 a day! I think mainly for phone calls.

then i will switch my keys with yours lol...AT&T or not it doesn't matter I seen it done working behind the front desk and back office at the W Hotels and other properties we had. But 20.00 per down sounds crazy..that is a first a card is suppose to be placed on file for incidentals. to cover any cost such as room damage, calls, movies, room service etc. Because people would skip out without paying. and I'm sure AT&T is making sure we do have one on file which is no problem. But you can Request that they disable the calls and movies.

yea, I probably will have them disable it, just cause that much money per day is pretty steep.
