Cooks finally got a raise this past 2018 but F&B servers see the minimum wage go up and the barista/server is suppose to make .50 more than servers but hasn’t been like that since for awhile. CSM doesn’t give raises.
I love working here ...I'm happy with the way things go here except and few housekeeping things I mentioned earlier other then that the people I work with are great and my managers are very supportive and encouraging .
Depending on the job you are doing. The banquet department is the area that involves a lot of walking, pushing, pulling, grasping, carrying, and maneuvering all the place. You getting the full body workout. That is the probably the best of working for this company.
It only depends of business needs. Which it can be tricky if employees are looking for full time hours. Either you get lucky working a lot of hours in one week or you don't. Its better off if people are entitled to this as a 2nd job trying to find work when business is in need of help.
They asked me how would I handle certain situations, good or bad, and personality questions.
Your lead to believe that if your a good employee you will have the opportunity to grow with the company and move up in the ranks of Marriott management. But in all reality it's just a ploy to get you to do the work. I've been with my hotel several years and several promotions pass me by while new employee are promoted after a few weeks on the job. Seniority means nothing . And their is no opportunity as long as you continue use to kill yourself working all the hours you can because they don't want to give you raises when you deserve them.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Courtyard by Marriott a better place to work?
Truly oversee lower mgt. supervisor at previous location actually cut hours for all staff in department and gave himself more overtime (on top of 10 hours per week already). AGM learned of this and did nothing.
It depends on what department you work in. Morning Bistro at my former location worked from 6am-11am or until finished all prep and side work. In Housekeeping we came in at 9am till all rooms are cleaned. Sometimes we were finished at 3pm, sometimes 6pm. It really depends on to many factors to guess.
What is the vacation policy like at Courtyard by Marriott? How many vacation days do you get per year?
I didn't really need it because it was a waste of my time doing nothing about it. However, if you didn't use any vacation time at all for 1 year it will be consider as in lieu of any hours you have and then gets added on to your next paystub. I would the total number of vacation time hours would be 2 weeks or 80 of PTO for a year of working if you are full time and averaging about 30 hours or more a week.
