Looking to work in the industry that’s about having the spirit to serve and focused on people? Marriott may now be for you — even if you smoke legal or medical marijuana you won’t be automatically disqualified from employment for many positions.
The following has been found on many of their job listings with the following message:
Prospective employees may be given a pre-employment drug test. Employment is conditioned upon a negative result. However, marijuana testing is not included in the pre-employment drug test for the location to which you have applied with the exception of positions subject to DOT testing. Applicants who refuse to be tested or have a confirmed positive drug test will not be hired and will be ineligible to re-apply for a period of six months. Are you willing to take a pre-employment drug test?
It wasn’t that long ago that Marriott would retract job offers to people who failed drug tests simply based on marijuana usage. This included legal recreational usage or those with a medical marijuana card.
Props Marriott for being on the right side of history!
