Marriott international is by far the best company I've worked for. Each day you can see that they truly take care and appreciate all staff. It's a company that encourages career progression and they are always ready to support and motivate you to achieve your best.

Pros

Free lunch Management Co workers

Cons

Nothing

A luxury brand

Worth to enjoy the workforceIn the past working experience, I was employed at the Ritz-Carlton. The experience taught me to know more on people/humans. Overall, it is an unexpected experience for me to work with, and build up my own (future).Somehow simple words can be the best describe to everything.

Pros

Standards, Strict

Wasn't a good experience

Team dynamics weren't good. Wasn't enough done by management to improve teamwork and efficiency of the team. Very unequal workload given in the team, training needed for the job wasn't given and information about where things were located wasn't sufficient.

Hard work with little return.

I had a fantastic supervisor during my tenure as a kitchen steward in Four Points by Sheraton Docklands. While for the most part I enjoyed my job, its many perks and even befriended some lovely folks, sadly our department was generally taken for granted, underpaid, woefully underappreciated and often even taken advantage of for their tremendous efforts and long hours. Coordination with the FnB crew was also borderline abysmal as the incompetence of their manager at the time was downright flabbergasting.Senior management seemed detached from the reality of floor operations and their attempts to placate rock-bottom morale with appreciation days, seasonal staff buffet and honeyed slogans comes off as insulting because ultimately they only add more workload to the kitchen crew that was already straining to keep up with their demanding jobs. I left for mental health reasons, but can say with clarity my immediate coworkers and a select few outside the department were real industry champions. Were it so easy to extend the same compliment to the rest of the hotel staff.

Pros

Relatively cruisy, intense and fast paced with a lot of responsibility.

Cons

Thankless and physically demanding with no room for progression.

The company and brand use to be good when l started, maybe it is changing due to world.

The management in Sydney Harbour Marriott is very bias. If you are from certain cultures and races, you are protected. Marriott-International is a great company and brand, unfortunately it doesn’t happen in Sydney Harbour Marriott. The management only protect their family members work there and their friends. It’s sad.

Pros

None

Cons

For you to find out. All the best.

Stressful

Worst nightmare. Management was so poor and did not think about its employees. I had to work 10-12 hours a day to finish the workload and only got paid for 7.5 hours. Left the job because it became unbearable.

A great company to work for

I was employed by Marriott for 13 years. During that time I undertook training at various levels. Marriott look after their staff to ensure the staff look after the guests. Good staff discounts regarding meals & accommodation.

it was a very productive place to work, and we had the best people working there

Depending on the job I did we started at different times,it was either cleaning rooms, cleaning public areas of the hotel, collecting Laundry from guest rooms and sending them out to the dry cleaners and putting them back in the rooms when they came back, wash and Iron some staff uniforms, delivering linen to the floors collecting the dirty linen and ready to be picked up in the morning for the outside laundry to collect Management were very fair to all staff, they new every ones names, from the General Manager to supervisors in all departments. i worked in a multicultural hotel so we were all mindful of the differences and their cultures,The hardest part was starting a new place and the saddest was the day I left, the most enjoyable part was that the hotel was like a family, and the different celebrations we had in the 16 years I was there, I have missed working there in the last 4 years

Great environment and amazing team

Everyday is a day o learn something new and to be a brilliant host. Marriott chooses only the best of the best in its area and the company truly invests in its associates.

Interessante e molto rigido

Ho trovato un bell'ambiente, nonostante il lavoro fosse sostanzialmente solo di parcheggiatore, portiere e usciere. Gran professionalità e regole ferree: dove ho lavorato non erano ammesse barba e capelli lunghi, quindi ogni mattina dovevo farmi la barba con la lametta (il rasoio elettrico non era abbastanza: se pensavano avessi usato solo quello, ti rimandavano indietro con un kit da barba e dovevi farla al momento). Mensa così così, Buon rapporto vita privata - lavoro.

Awesome to work for (particular hotels) !

I absolutely loved working for the Marriott in Australia! You got so well looked after! I have to add though, I did a trial at the Marriott in Berlin and it was the complete opposite, so depends on the management of the particular hotel.

Working staff are very friendly.

Marriott management brilliant. Outside hire management needs a bit of updating. Cleaning times need to be calculated. King room 1 bed 30min can do but double need to an extra 5 to 10 minutes.

Marriott's core values. Take good care of your employees and the employees will do the same to the guests. The business of Marriott is all about good service. That is why we Always do things with passion. "Make it Brilliant" "Creating personal connections" that is our mantra. Not only for the guest to feel at home but also a good way to establish a friendly relationship towards fellow employee

good place to work if you want to to ruin your career

Management keeps on changing, no job stability, no proper training, they do not even provide induction, and even after the bad training you try your best they just blame everything on you even if it is not your fault. if their was below 1 star I will give it to them.

Pros

none

Cons

everything
