Intern Interview

Intern
San Francisco, CA

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Four Seasons.

Interview Details – Strange interview process for interns. The interviewer talked for over half an hour but only asked me three questions. I would answer in a couple of sentences and then she would talk for ten minutes going on tangent after tangent. I just sat and tried to pay attention and look like I was interested in what she had to say, but most of it wasn't even related to the job. I left and I wasn't sure how it went because I hardly spoke so how could she get to know me? I ended up getting a call that I was selected a week later.

Marketing Coordinator Interview

Marketing Coordinator

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Four Seasons.

Interview Details – The hiring and interview process was very drawn-out: four months!
The company is very serious, however, that all potential hires undergo their systematic approach to interviews and the interview structure.

Interview Question – Most questions were open-ended but designed to be personality-based. Example: In your current position, when a project was not meeting a deadline, how did you react and respond?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes, a little on upcoming vacation but to be transparent, I did not negotiate more...as I was very excited to be offered the position.
