I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Marriott (Boston, MA) in November 2012.
On campus two person interview, one asking questions, the other writing answers/notes. Second round is an "on-site" interview at a Marriott hotel. Single interview with two people, however this time they both ask questions. After the interview there was a benefits overview and free lunch (from the hotel which was excellent).
- Questions mainly pertained to self-motivation; working under pressure; team environments; being a leader, etc. Very typical entry-level finance questions. There were some minor technical questions on understanding basic accounting finance concepts, but nothing you shouldn't know. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Too much variability in where you could be located after completing the 3 month training program.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Marriott (New York, NY) in January 2011.
First round on campus with two interviewers. Fairly straightforward behavioral questions: Why Marriott? Why this position?
Invited to final rounds in Baltimore with a reception and presentation the previous afternoon and evening. Lots of opportunities to network and ask questions. Interview was again very typical behavioral questions, felt just like a repeat of the previous round of interview.

I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Marriott (San Diego, CA) in May 2010.
Interviewed on campus with a director and assistant director of finance from a local hotel. Mostly behavioral questions and scripted from a list. I asked them about their background and why those chose private over public accounting and agreed with their reasoning. Took about an hour. A week later, I got an email from HR saying I passed the first interview and had to take an hour long personality/management test. A week later I got an email from HR saying they were flying me to Denver, CO for final rounds interviews with the Area Director of Finance. We were placed in the City Centre hotel for 2 nights with all expenses paid (flight, room, meals) and the next morning we had an hour presentation on HR, culture and administrative responsibilities. Then all of us took turns with a panel interview with the Area Director and the Director of Finance of that particular hotel. Questions were behavioral, but way more intense. They grilled you for more details and it was scarier than the campus interview. Lasted about an hour and then I was flown back to CA, to receive and offer email a week later. What a pleasant surprise!
Tried to negotiate the salary, but there is no pay difference for bachelors or masters degree. Pay also depends on region/location. HR threatened me saying it's supply and demand due to the recession and that if I try to negotiate, they have other candidates on the waitlist eager to take my position.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Marriott in November 2011.
Interview was basically behavioral questions which they wanted to be very specific. Also spent a long time having me ask some questions. People seemed interested in me and said they loved the culture.
