    The global hotel chain is an excellent post for former military members, surpassing its goal of 1,000 veteran hires in 2019 with a total of 1,265. A “military translator” tool on the company’s careers site assists by breaking down which military skill sets align with available Marriott jobs. Family work/life balance is a perk for employees as well: Birth mothers receive up to 15 weeks of paid parental leave; fathers and adoptive parents receive 8 weeks plus additional unpaid time off.
