Banquet Server Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Four Seasons in November 2009.
Interview Details – Met with an HR team member at a career fair, first follow up was via phone to book an interview. The interview consisted of 3 interviews, with each of the HR Manager, Director of F&B and Banquet Manager. Questions were about "fit" and about relevant work experience, asking some questions about attitude, plans for the future and situation based questions.
Very kind people, focused on finding good people with the right attitude. Would rather find someone with the right "fit" and teach them the skills to do the job right.
Interview Question – How I would set up a meeting room lunch buffet to be visually appealing and functional. Answer Question
Bartender, Server Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Four Seasons in April 2012.
Interview Details – This was for the New Four Seasons Hotel.
Applied online several times, finally got an interview
Put in a room of 40 people. Called to interview 1-on-1
Asked about previous work, situations and what you would do..
Then after 20minutes, told they would call me
Asked when? The interviewer will LIE to you and tell you "we are looking at all applications"
DO NOT BELIEVE THEM. The Four Seasons does NOT have the GUTS to tell it to your face.
Instead you are left waiting for them to call. I had to email to see if I would get another interview
In a nutshell......IF you do not get told, right there and then that you are hired, then you are NOT!
Friend when with the same process, but they put her through 3 interviews in ONE DAY in a span of about 3 hours.
The Four Seasons states "they want people-persons" to work for them
THIS IS NOT CORRECT. They do NOT want happy, fun people with a pulse.
Instead they hire DRONES. Have you ever been to a Four Seasons?
NO ENEMA. There is no 'happy' there. Just robots
This is what they want. And their motto "our greatest assets are our people". Whatever.
They seriously need to clean up all hotels.
