    I have been working at Marriott

    Pros

    It's a fun job where you make friends and can be social. Guests can be friendly and it is cool meeting new people.

    Cons

    Some guests are awful and demanding and have the craziest requests. You have to have thick skin to be able to smile the entire time.

    I worked at Marriott as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    staff was professional and friendly, I adapted very quick and learned so much .I worked in the sales and accounting department and I felt important and very much liked by my staff which were so much more experienced then me. I was respected and was given an opportunity to hold my own safety training class ( by my self) which involved the entire staff of the hotel to sit through an hour to 2 hour long test about blood pathogens, emergency conditions etc.

    Cons

    unfortunately my internship was over and due too layoffs at the time I wasn't able to be hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please hire me again
