Ice Attendant Interview

Ice Attendant

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Gaylord National.

Interview Details – The hiring and interview process was pretty simple. I applied online for the position. After about a week I got a call and had a phone interview. At the end I was asked to come in for the one on one interview. It was a pretty standard interview. They asked about my education and experience based on my resume.

Interview Question – The most difficult question was how to solve a disagreement between you and a manager.   Answer Question

Convention Coordinator Interview

Convention Coordinator
Oxon Hill, MD

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Gaylord National in August 2013.

Interview Details – Phone Interview followed by an in person interview. After a wonderful phone interview I was invited for an all day interview process with 7 different meetings. After waiting a half hour for my first meeting I was asked how I thought my first meeting went then immediately told the interview would no longer continue. A complete lack of respect and consideration behalf of the gaylord resort at the national harbor. I will forever encourage others to seek, positions elsewhere.

Interview Question – Asked same questions in person as they did on phone interview. Nothing was difficult as far as questions go. Just inconsiderate of interviewers time.   Answer Question
