    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at HMSHost (Elkhart, IN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very easy, walked in and within five minutes I was hired. They just asked what I currently do/ work experience. I was surprised at how simple it all was. Easiest interview ever. She said they would call me the next day and then I just had to go fill out paperwork. Nothin was done very professionally but overall I guess it was ok.

    Interview

    I was not hard. Try to show you consistency and willingness to learn. There will be some short essay you have to write, and some excel spreadsheet you have to create. Overall, it was an easy test for me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at HMSHost (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I went to job fair held at lax site. It was sort of like a speed dating process, as all the candidates interviewed with each terminal manager. We had 3 mins with each manager to answer questions and tell them about ourselves & experience, and were grade at the end. It was a little weird and impersonal, but it prompted you to make an effort to be remembered. They told me that day I was hired, filled out some paperwork and was scheduled for orientation. After about 3 weeks of going to orientation, 2 training days, waiting for background check, & getting airport badge, I got my restaurant post & and started work. Job is good for pay above minimum, thats about it, favortism and seniority sucks!!

    Negotiation

    No pay negotiation, union dues are high & suck considering the fact that you dont get any benefits until after six months.
