Company: Marriott International.
Number of employees: 13,300 locally. 129,000 worldwide.
Beth McGlasson and her family often head to local hotels for the weekend. They swim in indoor pools, eat continental breakfasts and return home on Sunday night.
“We use the pool for two days, and it feels like we’ve just been on a week-long vacation,” said McGlasson, who is a manager of public relations at Marriott.
But the best part? It’s all free.
McGlasson’s husband Dan has been working at Marriott International for more than 25 years, which qualifies him for complementary stays at any of the company’s 3,500 hotels on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for the rest of his life.
Employees in the Quarter Century Club, as it’s called, also get free rooms at the company’s timeshare properties during the week.
