    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Destination Hotels in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very long process that began in September and was finalized at the end of December. The process was thorough and necessary but the timeline should be reviewed. For a candidate, it is extremely difficult to function during an interview process personally and professionally.

    Director of Property Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bend, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bend, OR
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Destination Hotels in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    My initial contact was with a Regional Director to whom I had a previous introduction. He forwarded my information to HR and the direct supervisor of the position applied for, and provided their contact information. Without this introduction, not sure my resume would have made it through their automated screening system!

    Following three telephone interviews (HR, Direct Supervisor, & Managing Director) an onsite interview was scheduled. The interview process was effectively coordinated through the property's HR office, including travel, accommodations, meeting schedule, and position & company information. It was a fairly intensive 2 day process, meeting with various department heads, and multiple meetings with the Managing Director. All contacts were professional and did a good job of demonstrating the company culture.

    I would have required relocation, they opted for a local candidate.
