    Housekeeping Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at AccorHotels (Miami, FL) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Got in touch through postal mail. One on one interview later. Sketchy hiring practices. They hide information and pressure you to sign papers without having things clear (benefits, etc). They trick interns into a fallacy.

    Chef De Project MACH Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AccorHotels (Paris (France)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I came across the job ad in English and emailed the direct manager with my resume and cover letter in English. I was given an appointment to meet his manager or as it's called in France the N+2, then I sent the French version of my resume to avoid in confusions or misunderstandings.

    The day of the interview, his assistant and himself were very nice and pleasant, he started the interview by explaining what the project was about and what type of Project Manager they were looking for. He spoke all in French obviously. I definitely felt at ease with him. We switched to English and he asked me to tell him more about myself, my experience and how it was related to the job I was applying for. No tricky questions or anything like that.

    Then he said that my profile didn't really match what they were looking for and they had probably overlooked the type of experience I had, but anyways I'd be considered for the position as I had been the first one to be interviewed but I wouldn't have answer before 2 weeks.

    I emailed him a week or so after to follow-up, he responded to my email and then I receive a very kind letter by email stating I had not been selected.

    - Applied online,
    - Got a call from the Front Office Manager 2-3 days later asking if I was available for a phone interview,
    - I accepted the phone interview on the spot
    - I was asked general questions like: Can you tell me about your previous job roles and what responsibilities you had? What is it about hospitality that interests you? Would you be able to work 7am-3pm and 3pm-11pm? What characteristics do you have that suit the role? etc. etc.
    - At the end of the phone interview I was asked to come in for an interview with the General Manager
    - I went for the face-to-face interview a few days later
    - General Manager and Front Office Manager both attended my interview
    - I was asked questions like: Which days are you able to work? Are the hours we require suitable? When are you finishing your course? Tell me about a time you had to deal with a difficult guest. How did you overcome the situation? What interests you about guest interaction? Talked about previous experience, passion for the industry etc.
    - General Manager gave me her business card
    - Got a call 4 days later saying I was unsuccessful

    Although the job ad stated no experience in the same role was necessary (as training would be provided regardless), the person who they hired had Accor Hotel experience.
