Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 19 April 2018
At this location, this was my second job ever, and it was pretty sweet! I started out being a housekeeper, I loved it, learned new tricks, and how to work under pressure well. The staff is hard on the team but means well, all in learning. It's the whole "work hard, play hard" but they treat us employees very very well. It was a very tough job, I was the youngest on the team, everybody there was 19+ and I was 16, but I met some amazing people, and they pay was very well at the age I was. Overall you will LOVE the people there, very welcoming, and caring.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 20 April 2018
Absolutely the worst place I've ever worked. 18-20 rooms a day, sometimes more. You get days off but they call for OT all the time. Once you're done your rooms you have to help the same slow people every day. Management/supervisors don't care and are RUDE. Pay is not even close to being enough for the work you do. Don't bother working here, you'll regret it!
Sales and Service Associate (Current Employee) – St. Thomas, ON – 9 April 2018
You take upwards of 100 calls a day back to back with no break in between to even swallow. People are people so you get what you get. You are marked on your calls by metrics and you better get them or you are out. Supervisors are brutal they got to where they are before Marriott took over and they do nothing but brown nose hoping they will get further ahead. There are no advancements. You get 7 minutes a day of "personal" time to catch your breath between calls or go to the bathroom. This job doesn't care about you at all, they only want you to make sales and get off the phone to take the other 99 waiting for you. This is a last resort job.

Banquets Server (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 March 2018
The Marriott is a great company to work for with lots of opportunities to advance your career and work in different countries / locations. I would recommend this company to someone looking for a new company to work for.
Houseman (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 20 March 2018
They will overwork you if you give them the chance. It is not uncommon that they have people working 6 or more days straight. That being said, you won't get any over time, they structure your hours so you could work 8 days straight, and not receive any over time. They are willing to cross train people in different departments. That being said if you have received a raise or 2 in one department, when you start working in a different department, your raises are void and you will start at the starting wage of the position you are working in. So if you are working $16 as a houseman, if you are getting cross trained as a bellman, your wage when working a bellman shift will be $14.50. They also don't mention that to you unless you bring it up. There are many more problems with this company and the way they treat their employees.
Overworked, little room for advancement, will screw you over if possible
CHEF DE PARTIE (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 10 March 2018

If you are a passionate and hard working individual who puts your heart in what you love to do, every company you land in becomes your home, your family.

Assistant Manager housekeeping (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 February 2018
The environment and this type of job is very healthy because of the type of formal dress code. Going to work and seeing others in the way they are dressed is a healthy part of one's social life. Communication is also the good thing in this field The layout of the department heads adds to the structure of the working environment. It is a psychological milestone that clearly has been improved upon over time and history. Keeping focused on this a good part of being a good worker.

Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Sheraton on the Falls, ON – 13 February 2018
I worked at Sheraton on the Falls for 4 months during the 2017 summer months for my college co-op. I don't know where to begin with the review, except I would never go back to Sheraton on the Falls. Next to no job security, agents often discussed the likelihood of one of us being fired/laid off. Supervisors doing managers jobs, Front Desk agents doing supervisory jobs. I'm looking for a job where I feel appreciated and involved, with a goal that everyone can get behind and appreciate
