- Accepted OfferNeutral Experience
I applied online – interviewed at Hersha Hospitality.
I first received an telephone call with the HR manager to do a brief screening of qualifications and basic history. I then had an interview with 3 managers I would be directly working with, and finally with the General Manager.

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Hersha Hospitality (New York, NY).
I had simply walked in off the street and submitted my resume which included 2 years of hospitality experience. Within an hour, I was called by the Front Office Manager for an interview later that day. The interview process was relatively brief for my initial hiring. Questions were about my goals, my interest in hospitality as a career, specific experience with customer service and difficult situations. I was then briefly interviewed by the General Manager who asked about my experience in hospitality, my goals and my interest in hospitality as a career. I was hired on the spot. It was maybe a 3 hour process from the time I submitted my resume to the time I was offered a position.
- "What is your ideal career?" Not really an unexpected question, but one that I though may compromise my chances of being offered a position as my interest was pursuing employment in the music industry, not the hospitality industry. Answer Question
No negotiation. I was in need of a job and the offer was more than suitable for what I was looking for at the time.

Quick, simple. If you've worked at the Don Cesar you probably don't even need an interview.
There is none.
