Difficult Interview

Bartender Interview

Bartender
Rosemont, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Hilton Worldwide.

Interview Details – HR called and said F&B would call within 2 weeks, within 1 week, F&B manager called. I called her back, one week goes by she calls again. Set up interview. I arrived 15 mins early, she was in a meeting and 50 mins late. She seemed
rushed but extremely nice.

Questions asked did not pertain to bartending. Not one question regarding how to cut off a patron/guest, how to make sure the drinking laws of Illinois are being adhered to, how do you deal with crabby coworkers or guests, how to upsell, what could I bring to Hilton Suites in Rosemont, How do you cost control. Like they were for a project manager, asked me "what project was I given and not able to fulfill within the allotted time period?""How do I time manage as to get my responsibilities accomplished?" As those are very good questions, they are not good questions for a bartender position. ANd as an experienced bartender, I was thrown off track.

Disappointing, as I was not prepared for such obtuse questions.

Interview Question – Questions NOT related to the job at all.   Answer Question

Bellman/Guest Services Interview

Bellman/Guest Services
Cincinnati, OH

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Hilton Worldwide in September 2013.

Interview Details – You are scheduled by the very friendly HR Rep for an interview with the department manager, if all goes well with the department manager, you then meet with the assistant general manager. All of which are nice and respectful, yet very clear on what the image and expectations are for the hotel.

Interview Question – For me it's always questions that put you on spot, such as, what can you bring to this business. they asked what can you bring to the hotel, how can you be successful in the environment   Answer Question
