“RR has been responsive to on-the-job training. She’s helped us out with last minute coverage for events and helped out when we have call outs from other guards. So far she’s proven to be a very reliable and professional guard.”
–Margaret Shipley, Human Resources Manager – Blueline Security Services, LLC
“We are very appreciative of our great partnership with Goodwill of Greater Washington. The Hospitality Jobs Training Program has worked, several months before the opening of our hotel, to source the local community for interested candidates, prepare selected participants with necessary life skills to start the interview process. The jobs training program has enabled many of our associates to realize their dream with a start of a hospitality career at Marriott Hotels and be excellent hosts to our guests.”
