    I was not hard. Try to show you consistency and willingness to learn.
    There will be some short essay you have to write, and some excel spreadsheet you have to create.
    Overall, it was an easy test for me.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at HMSHost.

    Interview Details

    I went to job fair held at lax site. It was sort of like a speed dating process, as all the candidates interviewed with each terminal manager. We had 3 mins with each manager to answer questions and tell them about ourselves & experience, and were grade at the end. It was a little weird and impersonal, but it prompted you to make an effort to be remembered. They told me that day I was hired, filled out some paperwork and was scheduled for orientation. After about 3 weeks of going to orientation, 2 training days, waiting for background check, & getting airport badge, I got my restaurant post & and started work. Job is good for pay above minimum, thats about it, favortism and seniority sucks!!

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    No pay negotiation, union dues are high & suck considering the fact that you dont get any benefits until after six months.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at HMSHost.

    Interview Details

    My first interview was flawless, and was told I was going to the second interview.
    Was called the next day for the second interview for the following day.
    I was interviewed by the district manager, whom off the bat did not like me.
    He said I was certainly qualified but he wasn't looking for that, he wanted to know if I could handle people?????
    Well that is all I do.
    I am a woman and he has all men managers? Hmm is there a problem there?

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at HMSHost in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted by the hiring manager a few days later. I went in for an interview at the location where I'd be hired. It was an extremely easy interview, probably the easiest one I've ever done.

    She asked me about my previous experience which was on my resume, my availability, easy stuff. There was no difficult questions.

    I was hired on the spot and was told it would take a few days to a week for the background check. After a week, I called to make sure things were still in the works, and the hiring manager said she hadn't gotten the BG check back yet but she'd let me know. A few days later she called me to come in for orientation.
