Marriott International is one of the world’s largest hotel chains, with over 7,500 properties in 132 countries and hotels under 30 different brands.
Their Delta Hotels Prince Edward on the waterfront in Charlottetown has over 200 guest rooms and includes amenities such as a fitness centre, spa, indoor pool, meeting spaces, dry cleaning service, laundry, room service, daily housekeeping, and more.
“Right now we are looking to staff up for the summer,” says Bethany Kauzlarick, Director of Human Resources. “Some key positions we are hiring for include Guest Service Agents, Room Attendants, Cooks, Stewards, Banquet and Restaurant Service Workers, and Bell Persons.”
Delta Hotels Prince Edward employees have access to a daily staff meal, dry cleaning for work uniforms at no cost, and discounted underground parking. “We also offer employee assistance programs for our part-time and full-time staff, and health benefits and pension for our full-time staff.”
As part of Marriott International, employees gain access to even more benefits, says Ellis Luo, University Relations & Recruiting Manager. “We want to help open doors for all our associates, so we offer thousands of free, accessible online training courses. We also have a rewards program to recognize employees who stay with us for a long time.”
Their new Student Debt Repayment Program helps staff who are students or recent graduates to repay student loans by matching up to six percent of the employee’s annual earnings. “We also have a Defined Contribution Pension Plan that works the same way.”
Students who are interested in a co-op or summer internship can join the Hotel Internship Program, which provides the opportunity to gain practical work experience and to be immersed in Marriott International’s work culture. “Internships are typically 10 weeks, but they can be shorter or longer, and they are paid positions.”
Staff members who would like to grow with the company can take part in the 12-month Voyage Leadership Program. “This program includes collaboration, learning business skills, on-the-job training, and management experience.”
