    Interview Details

    I didn't enjoy the process. They brought several candidates who were competing for the same role on the same day, even having lunch together. that's ok for an internship position, not for a senior role. Pretty uncomfortable.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were OK, but none of candidates got one on one time with the hiring manager. Interview with hiring manager included another candidate at the same time. Akward.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Applied for the position online and was given a phone interview about 2 weeks later. The interview was conducted by 2 people. Asked what my definition of integrity. About 2 weeks later I was called back for a face to face interview. I was taken on a tour of the facility, it was a very nice contact center. I was then interviewed by two Operation Managers who were very nice and personable. The interview questions weren't too difficult, typical contact center questions. How would you motivate your team and earn their respect? How would you respond to change? They gave me the opportunity to ask questions. Overall great interview, very nice and professional people. Hope to hear from them soon.

    Brand Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group.

    Interview Details

    Applied for position about 3-4 months before being contacted by an HR representative via e-mail for a phone interview with the hiring manager. Phone interview took place several days later and took about an hour. Was provided a detailed overview of the company, an explanation of the role and a reminder of the pay. Was asked a number of behavioral interview-style questions and then offered the opportunity to ask questions, too. Was told my answers would be "scored," and I would move on to phase II if I "passed." I made it to phase II, which was an e-mailed assessment, consisting of real-life work scenarios and projects; I had to propose strategies, tactics and solutions and make recommendations. My 16-page detailed document did not "score" high enough to move on to phase III. Details were not provided on what was not satisfactory.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied for a position with IHG Atlanta. This position was for a consultant for the region in which I live. The consultant has 50 plus hotels that they work with the hotel regarding performance issues. Applied for the position online and received a response via email on a Saturday which stated that I would need to reply by noon on Sunday in order to be considered. On Monday, there was a 15 minute telephone interview. After the 15 minute interview then you are asked to answer questions in written form. The questions are vague and the information given may not be something you would know unless you already work for the company.

    Interview Questions
    • The two questions consisted of one concerning how would you come to an agreement and the second was how would one schedule their daily work and travel. As an HR professional and one that has been in business for many years they are really no brainers.   View Answer
