    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hilton Worldwide (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    I was called (phone interview) by an assistant manager who knew I had a license in massage therapy. She told me that they had and opening and asked if I would be interested in interviewing for it. They required a full resume, fill out a full application, interview with the hiring manager, and a skills review of giving a massage to the hiring manager. I believe a person one level above the manager had to approve the hire.

    Interview

    Interview process took a long time without a referral, turned down because hiring manager was looking for a candidate from an Ivy League school. Hiring manager was very unprofessional and unnecessarily made the conversation awkward. I passed the screening the the HR, and only spoke to the hiring manager over the phone, did not advance to on-site.

    Valet Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rye Brook, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hilton Worldwide (Rye Brook, NY).

    Interview

    Worked at a Hilton for 2 consecutive summers while home from college. First met with HR manager and gave me basic info about the position. After a 10 minute meeting I went to go meet with one of the assistant managers and he gave me a bit more details about the position. Strong focus on the quality of service to the guest, and to provide them with the best service possible. Did a walk through of the grounds. Easy and simple questions with obvious answers you know they'd want to hear. Background check takes about a week or more, so bit of a waiting period. Be sure to be polite and smile!

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation but when I returned the following summer they gave me a .50 cent raise.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    VERY non friendly. There are certain specifics that must be met before you even get a phone interview. The internet form is very cumbersome. It took a looong time for the H.R. person to get back to me, and by the time they did, I'd found another job. Apparently, the property can only interview up to 10 people at a time, so if you got your application in at number 11, and they find someone that will do, they will hire them. I wonder how many people that might be better for the job are rejected without an interview at all. And, wouldn't it be great if an industry based on hospitality actually had hospitable in-person interviews?

    Interview Questions

    • None - I did not interview because I found another job in the time it took for them to get back to me.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Hilton Worldwide.

    Interview

    Quick process. HR is very on top of their stuff. The in person interview was great. The people were very nice. The digital interview is a bit odd. Not sure I like this new trend. I think face to face interviews should be of more importance, but without the digital interview you can't go any further. I don't agree with this, so I chose not to continue with the process.
