Outlet Supervisor Interview

Outlet Supervisor

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Interview Details – The interview process was very easy. They started off with basic interview questions wanting to know about your experience. This part took about 15 min. Depending on the interviewer for the next part they would give you a more general description of the position you were there for. They mainly do all the talking in this part. After that there is a site tour of the whole place.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had to deal with an unsatisfied guest and be specific.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There really was no negotiating. All Supervisors start at 13/hr

Front Desk Agent Interview

Front Desk Agent

I applied online and interviewed at Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Interview Details – I responded to their Craigslist ad via email as instructed and included my resume. I got a response the following day regarding my email and asked to come in for an interview.

I went in for the scheduled interview only to be told that the manager wasn't even there. They sent me home with an application and told me to bring it back and then they'd call to set up another interview.

Thankfully, I was able to see how incredibly unprofessional this particular location of Crowne Plaza is and was able to avoid what I assume would be an unprofessional and subpar environment there.
