    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Marriott Vacation Club (Hilton Head Island, SC).

    Interview

    It was a three-round process. I applied online, which involved a large application and a 75-question personality test. I received a phone call about two weeks later and had a 30 minute phone interview with the Marketing Manager. He wanted me to come in the office a week later to meet the assistant to the Director of Marketing and interview with him. After that, I had a third round interview with the Director of Marketing. I received a non-formal verbal offer on the spot pending drug tests and background checks.

    Guest Relations Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport Beach, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Marriott Vacation Club (Newport Beach, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Typical interview process. The first twenty minutes was an in depth explanation of the job and the expectations. The questions were more about my previous experience in hospitality (and at another Marriott property I worked at before). The interview seemed casual and was very fluid. It went well enough that I met the other team members and went on a tour of the property.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Marriott Vacation Club (Orlando, FL) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Relaxed and cordial. More focused on getting a feel for your personality and intelligence rather than getting the "right" answers. They won't interview you unless they feel like you're qualified so worry less about that and more about being yourself.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Marriott Vacation Club.

    Interview

    My roommate worked there, and after I'd been laid off from my job she told me to apply. I filled out the app online and received a call the next day. I interviewed with the Assistant Front Office manager, who asked me all the typical "why do you want to work here?" "how have you dealt with difficult customers?" questions, and the Front Office Manager happened to be in his office, so I met with him immediately after. His questions were more personality based to see if I had the temperament to work there and was offered a job on the spot.
