    Clerk Interview

    Interview Details

    To Long it took 6 weeks, several phone calls and call backs for a next to minimum wage Job. Human resource department was horrible took way to long. and came to find out they desperately needed a worker at the time.. After weeks it was disheartening and kept putting me in a deeper and deeper financial hole. because I was already out of work for a bit. When the job market improves and it will, it will be hard for them to find anyone that will hold out that long.

    Convention Services Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Highgate Hotels in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    This was an internal promotion. HR offered me less than they informed my director they would be offering me. Even still, the property (65k sq feet of meeting space) offered me a salary comparable to a hotel across the street with less thank 10k sq ft meeting space. Absolutely insulting

    Negotiation Details
    I made them aware that the salary was unacceptable to me and that I would accept and look for a new position with a reasonable salary - which I did and quickly left

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Highgate Hotels.

    Interview Details

    This was an on-campus recruiting event, and the recruiter had a very unique hiring/interview process. We submitted our resumes, and received text messages later that night to have breakfast/dinner with the recruiters the next day. It was a very casual/relaxed interview process, and asked typical behavioral questions.

    Front Office Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Highgate Hotels in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    E-mailed the General Manager directly and then was asked to apply online through their portal. I initially applied for a Sales Manager position which was filled at the moment but they wanted to interview me anyway.

    After meeting with the General Manager and Director of Human resources, it took them one week to ask me consent for employment back ground check and then almost four weeks to get an offer.

    After hired, you understand why they take so long in the hiring process which is basically to save money and lack of organization.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Highgate Hotels in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview was mostly informal, interviewer gave overview of position and asked about what I was looking for and my interests, no difficult questions, did not require a lot of preparation. After the interview, it took awhile to hear back even after following up with the company. I actually did not receive an offer for about a month after the interview, with no word from them in the meantime.

    Executive Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Irving, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Highgate Hotels in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was almost painful. Four hour interview for an admin position; a bit over the top. Company seems to be entirely too consumed with paperwork and approval process; I was he 12th person to interview for the position which I was over qualified for. During the interview it was made clear I may "be bored with the position, as I am overqualified". Job offer came 2 days later; but not for the job I interviewed for; offered me a receptionist position at half the salary as I "didn't quite have the qualifications they were looking for".
