    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at HMSHost (Waterfall, PA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    The interview seemed to go well. I talked to a hiring manager on the phone and then had an in store interview at the travel plaza. She said she thought I was qualified for the position and told me that I would get a call for the next interview, as the next person doing the interview had a busy work load. That call never came.

    Interview Questions

    • My personal most difficult question was what I wanted to do in the future, as I have a degree in something completely different than what I was applying for.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at HMSHost (Miami, FL) in July 2012.

    Interview

    After an online submission and short questionnaire I was hired on the spot and offered a permanent, full time position. I was interviewed by one person. After waiting for security clearance and drug test I was expected to start immediately. I then found out after training and after I had left my previous position (a four week process for clearance and training) for the extended job no longer existed because the flights were moved to another area and the assistant manager did not know why I was on her schedule. I was told by HR Manager that she was very sorry that I was now jobless but sometimes when they "hire for projected business and it falls though and sometimes that is how it is in an airport. They had no way of knowing the airlines would go to another gate" she did, however, inform me that I was applicable to apply for another position inside the company online and would be considered first for the interview with the unit managers since my position was eliminated.

    Interview Questions

    • Why did I want to work in the airport and how did I learn of the open position, simple questions.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Simple accept or reject, no negotiations.
