    Interview

    Marriott was in the career fair of my University and I went to ask for information about opening positions/internship opportunities and the representative offer me to come in for an interview the next day for the program that I choose. At the beginning of the interview she asked what would be my top choices for location and brand preference then she followed with (5) questions all of them you have to be answered in STAR method (Situation, Task, Action, Result) The interview took less than 30 minutes and they took over 3 weeks to get back to me with a second interview, before the first interview ended they told me that it would take them some weeks to get back to me due to another program deadline that needed to be done before the program I was applying for.

    Applied through my school and submitted my resume/application online at Marriott's website. received an email 2 weeks later stating I had an interview the next afternoon with a recruiter on campus. The recruiter was very nice and gave me great advice. Asked mostly behavior questions. Make sure to use specific examples using the STAR method.

    After that she told me if I passed this interview, she will email me an online test. I completed that and a couple days later I got invited to the last round of interviews in Southern California.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Marriott.

    Interview

    Applied online a week earlier and i was called for an interview a couple days after. Showed up a little late due to no parking. I met with assistant manager, she was very nice, and I guess the supervisor, who just sat and studied my resume for 20 minutes. Mostly situational questions.. All went well until they asked me about Sundays, which I said I couldn't work that much due to religious practice. I thought I'd blown it because they seemed really upset about that.
    Right after them I met with the GM who seemed nice enough but basically asked the same questions for 5 mins and rushed off. I thought I didn't get the job but they called me back 3 days later with an offer.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Marriott.

    Interview

    I was called in for an interview a day after completing the application. The housekeeping supervisor interviewed me. She asked basic questions. Most of the interview she informed me about the company, its goals, and expectations of employees. She went over the job duties and responsibilities. You have to take a drug test, and when the results come back you will be offered the position. Test results come back in 2-4 days. The whole process took about a week.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you find the most challenging part about housekeeping? What qualities do you have that make you a good housekeeper? Do you have experience? The rest of the interview was mainly conversation.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Marriott (Columbus, OH) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was sent a Gallup survey that I filled out to see if I was a match for the company. Then they called me back and did a phone interview to get to know me. I then was set up for the first interview and interviewed with the assistant general manager. Then after my first interview I waited a few days and was set up for another interview with the general manager and the Human resources manager. They ultimately called me back and told me they were very impressed by me but I didn't have any hotel experience, so they said it would be risk to offer me this position. They instead offered me a different position in the hotel as concierge. Coming from McDonalds this was a much better job and money with less stress, so I accepted.
