    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.

    Interview

    Video interview. A little challenging at the beginning. This is the first time I do this type of interview and I was confused with the process. I recorded improperly the first question and felt a little insecure there after. I will be more comfortable in the future.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Hilton Worldwide (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online through their website and after about 2 weeks was sent an email with directions to complete a HireVue interview on the Internet. It's a web n interview very easy and convenient. After this was completed I received an email from the senior recruiter with availability to conduct a 15 minute phone interview. After this was completed Andrew invited me in for an in person observation with the team lead. The team lead Interviewed me and asked very easy questions. She then asked me what I thought the most difficult part of the job was and I said, I would say learning ALL of the information needed to complete a proper pitch and she responded, "you don't think it's getting the person to person to stop and come over to you?" I said no. I said I could do that now...so she put me to the test on the spot and I knocked it out the park. ..not to mention one of the couples I brought over actually booked an appointment to see the timeshare presentation. This earned her employee a nice check all thanks to me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Hilton Worldwide (Short Hills, NJ) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the HR manager. Very polite person, listened to all my questions and explained me what the job consisted of. Unfortunately it was a very disappointing salary: 4,75 hour + tips which are not as consistent in a Hotel. The interview had very standard questions: - what have you learned from your previous job - a situtation where you helped someone, what would you do differently - a diffiuclt decision you made, what would you do differently.
