Marriott Marquis has taught me patience and helped me gain the necessary skills needed to become a positive asset in the workplace. Also, I had the opportunity to build delightful relationships with others here at the Marriott.

The culture really taught me a lot about customer service and how to be prepared for anything. My job required me to, not just know MY job in and out, but to know about all other aspects of the hotel as well. That way, if I didn't have the answer to someone's questions, I knew who would.

A day would start with a round of checking the building equipment and doing the pool tests. Twice a week of setting the building fan schedules. The remainder of the day would be working on PMs. or filling in on room calls for unfilled positions. I learned about our new BAS niagra system. The management at the hotel went from cooperative to budget cutting to the bare bone for the last few years. The work force was decreased while additions to the facility increase the amount of equipment and work load. It became impossible to complete all work required by the computer generated PM program that corporate issued. I enjoyed teaching the young engineers and apprentices on the hands on repair and maintenance of the equipment.
Pros
Much of the staff would work with you.
Cons
The work load and lac of a budget made things rough.

I'm sure the brand it self may be a little more productive than the subsidiary chain that I particularly work for. If you are planning on joining the company, make sure you do your research on the specific location you will be working for first.

IT WS AN OK COMPANY TO WORK FOR. I could've done without the management. The hotel in general was very discriminative and prejudice towards customers and employees.

Westin is my favorite hotel brand. i had an amazing crew that were able to help me. I had a great leader that took the time to come meet with me and clarify my goals. Managers were always available for the staff. The culture at the Westin was amazing. The hardest thing at the Westin was keeping the bellman busy when we were slow. My favorite thing at this hotel was how all associates and manager were trying to help us .
Pros
PTO was great. we also had an amazing

The typical day was difficult with a short staff. I learned how to take care of staff. I was lacking guidance from the GM. We had to communicate with other leaders. The hardest part of the job was not havng a GM. We could not get approval for change that was needed. The best pat of the job was dealing with customer. I loved dealing with my team, also.
Pros
free lunch, Great associates
Cons
no GM to handle my my inquires.

Pros
Good coworkers, good management
Cons
A new management company came in and changed many things for the worse
