Assistant Manager Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at HMSHost (Atlanta, GA) in April 2012.

Interview

I went to the Concessions job fair in hopes of getting in front of a hiring manager in regards to the management positions advertised online. I was told to go to the company website, because they had a lot of positions available. Within two weeks I got a call for a one-on-one interview. I felt a little rushed because I literally saw other candidates lined up in the bookstore waiting their turn. I was called back for a second and final interview a week later. It was a very detailed conversation with a lot of questions, but gave me a good understanding of the business.

Reasons for Declining

I declined because I had a way better offer from The Paradies Shops. I would have to negotiate just for 40K, and I was making more than that at my previous job. Their benefits started within 45 days (for management!), their off days are split, except for when you get your weekends off, and they wanted a minimum of 50 hours a week. Better offers were on the table, woth more comprehensive benefits packages.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at HMSHost (Tampa, FL) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I met the company's HR at a career fair; we talked for a short while and they offered to interview with me the following day. The interview was fairly standard. I then had a 2nd interview over the phone with store manager, since I was applying for an out of state job. I was then called back by the HR director with a job offer.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at HMSHost (Minneapolis, MN) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I had applied for a position at the Minneapolis Airport in February, but there were none open at the time. I received a call from the assistant GM in June to see if I was still interested since they received my application back in February. I knew a guy that works there, so I got an interview because of him. I interviewed with the Assistant GM a few days later. My application was passed on to the area manager of the location I'd be working (area manager is below Assistant GM) and after a miscommunication on the scheduled interview, received a call to do the interview over the phone. Both interviews consisted of basic questions that you'd find in most interviews.

    I was told I'd hear back in a few days, however, I never heard back.
