Good pay, unprofessional employers
Dishwasher, Busboy, Waitress, and Line Cook (Former Employee) – Westmount, QC – 18 December 2017
Coming into this employment, I thought it would be just another minimum wage job that a typical college student like me have to inevitably go through. However, I have learned tremendously from this experience. Though management was laid back (enabling me and several colleagues to go through shifts without supervision), there was clearly bias in treatment. It was not fair game for everyone.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the free lunch. This cut back my expenses, allowing me to save that for more important fees. Also, I bonded with two of the colleagues and made great friendships with them.
The job outline did not specify the amount of stress I have to go through to prevent myself from being sacked. There are days where I had to serve, or do dishes for 400+ people. During peak times, the company is still underemployed. This resulted in me having to do a job of 3 other people, and by the end of the work day, I had zero interest in living a normal life.
Though it was draining, the reason why I quit was from the apathy I got from my employers. When I resumed school full time, I have sent in multiple requests for hours cut so that I could concentrate on school life. Not only that my requests were denied, but they were ignored completely. I was forced to quit without a 2-week notice due to a decline in mental health.
Having to deal with high-class customers who treat me poorly, my experience at Marriott has been nothing short of eye-opening.
