Expand your food and beverage skills training at this Marriott property!
The management of the Atlanta Marriott Norcross feels that each employee in the Food and Beverage department should be familiar with all aspects of the operation due to the ever-changing nature of the hospitality business. Therefore, the intern will be required to cross-train in each outlet and should expect that a traditional rotation from one department to another will occur exactly as scheduled. However, over the course of the training program, the intern will be exposed to each department listed for the approximate amount of time.

A jewel of the south, Atlanta, also known as “The Hollywood of The South”, is a world class city in a unique setting. Located centrally in the “Deep South” region of The United States, Atlanta has interstates and highways surrounding the city that conveniently connect the city with direct lines to other major cities all over the south. Atlanta is a fantastic gateway city for those wishing to explore the whole region. For those who love both the city life as well as a little bit of the outdoors, Atlanta is the perfect compromise! A cultural and music hub of the south, Atlanta has countless things to do! From the eclectic Little Five Points district to towering Ponce City Market, to Stone Mountain, candidates will have a hard time being bored in Atlanta!
Housing in Atlanta is extremely varied, with prices very dependent on which neighborhood you are living in. It is recommended that candidates actually go visit apartments in person before they decide to pay for one. We suggest that candidates use our J1 Buddy program, as well as the J1 Facebook for HRC candidates in Atlanta to find possible roommates as well, which will help cut the costs of housing and allow candidates to live in more desirable neighborhoods. Below is a list of housing websites that we recommend candidates look on to begin their housing search! Please note, without established credit your first and last month’s rent may be required as a deposit. HRC recommends you arrive with at least $2,500 as startup capital and to help secure housing.
It is entirely possible that you may need a car during your time here. Remember to consider the cost of purchasing a vehicle and vehicle insurance. On average, a J-1 participant can expect to pay upwards of $400 on a used car payment per month and $150.00 per month for vehicle insurance. You must have an international drivers license.
