Front Desk Agent Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Omaha, NE
Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE
Application Details

I interviewed online - interviewed at Embassy Suites.

Interview Details

I applied and within about 2 weeks I received a call saying that they were interested in having an interview with me. As I was on vacation at the time that they called, they were very accommodating and told me to call back when I returned. I did that the day after returning and set up an interview for a week later.
The interview itself took place at the location (I was from out of town, looking to move) and I was asked questions by two different people at the same time. My perception of the two people at the front desk who I notified when I arrived was not overly positive as they seemed indifferent to me (although I could have been a potential guest). My two interviewers differed to me. One of them seemed to take control, talking more and with a much friendlier attitude. Many of the questions were pretty standard (how do you deal with pressure, tell me about a recent stressful time, etc.) The other was quieter, although he also asked me a few questions. The quiet one seemed more stand-offish to me, which made me uncomfortable. The hotel was very nice, having stayed there in the past.
I was told that my information would be sent to HR to review and there would be a possible follow-up phone interview, after which a decision would be made. However, I later received an email saying that they were going to look elsewhere.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Embassy Suites in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied at Hilton Hotel the same day I got an interview. It was about a 5 minute interview and I worked as a server for one day but wanted to be at the front desk. They gave me a seperate interview for the front desk. I came on a wednesday and waited about an hour for the interview. They changed the date for the interview which was a hassle for me at first. When I came for the interview it was about a 15 minute long interview with the basic questions centering around getting to know who I was and customer service.

    Interview Details

    I applied the GSA online and got a call from the F/D manager few weeks later to set up an interview with her. I came to the hotel on time and waited for her like 15 minutes. We did around 30 minutes interview, which were most base questions. After the interview, she said she would let me see the HR. However, I waited another 15 minutes and she came to me said the HR was on a meeting. She would forwarded my information to the HR and she would contact me. I went home and waited few days get an email from the HR to set up another interview with her. She asked again the same questions as the FOM did. And she sent me to meet the GM. The GM was nice and he asked me some questions were not career related, like what my favorite food is. I asked him how did he think about me in the end of the interview. His answer made me feel like I did well. However, I went home and waited like 2 weeks. No one contacted me to tell me if I got hired or I failed.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Embassy Suites.

    Interview Details

    I had a very friendly conversation with the hiring manager. He provided me with a parking pass (not easy to come by in the downtown area) after the interview, which was greatly appreciated. We first started off by discussing my resume and then moved onto stock questions which he said were necessary to ask. He offered me the job after the interview and asked me to call him back within the week to let him know if I was interested or not.

    Interview Questions

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Embassy Suites.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through a job board...either indeed or simplyhired I can't quite recall. I was contacted about a week later and was scheduled for an interview. I was not told that it would be an open house and was given an interview time of 11:00. I arrived at 10:30 AM and saw lots of people dressed up entering the hotel so I followed. It was at this time I found out about the open house. I checked in and was told I'd be called. I was told that they didn't expect so many people and they were backed up so it'd be about an hour wait. I was unemployed therefore very patient and willing to wait. However, after waiting two hours I asked where I was in the lineup and she couldn't locate my application. I wound up not getting interviewed until 1:30. At this point, I was interviewed by the director of human resources and everything went extremely well. I was offered the second interview and was scheduled a few days later with the manager of the hotel. I arrived on time and that interview went just as smooth as the first. She then told me she would be in contact with me by Monday. However, Monday came and went and I hadn't gotten word either way. I emailed the director of human resources and she emailed me back the next day saying that I wasn't offered the position. I thanked her for the opportunity and usually you don't hear anything back after that. However, she replied again wishing me luck and telling me that I have a great future ahead of me. It was by far the most bizarre interview process I had taken part in.
