    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Gaylord Entertainment.

    Interview Details

    My interview process consisted of 3 separate interviews. The first was a 1:1 with one of the front desk managers who asked your basic interview questions. The second interview was with the Director of Rooms. This interview was really more of a personality test to see how friendly and outgoing I was. Once you get to the last interview you pretty much have the job. It is a causal meeting with the hotel VP Manager.

    Interview Details

    Gaylord Entertainment requires 2 interviews for the Wildhorse Saloon, one at HR headquarters near the Opryland Hotel and one at the Wildhorse Saloon itself. They try to schedule both on the same day, one right after the other, so you will have two interviews back-to-back.

    Retail Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grapevine, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grapevine, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Gaylord Entertainment in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    The H.R. department called me and asked me to come in for a next-day interview. I went in for it. I was prepared for a small interview, however I went through three different interviews that day and took over 3 hours. I had to wait for each person to come down and meet with me which was annoying, but in the end it was worth it because they offered me the job on the spot, right after I filled out my paperwork instead of waiting for the first day with the restaurant I was chosen for. It was a long process but I'm glad I got to do it all at once instead of coming up 3 different times

    Interview Questions
