    Interview

    This interview was pretty easy. They basically went over went over the position details and expectations. The gallery host has to do a lot. The pay is low which was a turn off, especially for all the work they described. Got offered the position but don't know ill take it. Very nice hotel with nice staff.

    Responded to an online job ad for a position at Hyatt Place and I was contacted via email to schedule an interview. The interview was held in the lobby. I was asked the basic interview questions and then explained the everyday duties of the position I applied for. After that, the interview was over and I was told that I will be contacted for a second interview by the general manager if I am still considered for the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hyatt (New York, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I received a call from a HR rep a few weeks ago about an "open call" for the Hyatt for the Gallery Host position. I get to the Hotel and first off the front desk associates didn't even know there was an "open call" to begin with so that's a red flag. Staff that isn't knowledgable about what's going on is a huge No No. I go upstairs and it's not an open call it's just me and another guy interviewing for the same position. I agree to interview first and go into a conference room where I am to be interviewed by 3 managers at the same time (the female HR Rep), an Indian manager (I'm sure he's the front desk supervisor) and another guy who sat across the table from me. The interview went well for the first 3 minutes then turned into a slight tirade about my capabilities for working for the company and pretty much I listened to them tell me why I wouldn't be a good fit. The Indian manager was on his phone the ENTIRE interview and only looked up to ask me a stupid question that had nothing to do with the interview. Second red flag here, if you weren't interested in interviewing me and I was boring then why even show up or have me show up? The other male manager kept asking me about my college career and other career opportunities then proceeded to tell me that the interview was a waste of time since I had other career goals I wanted to meet that I received my degree in. The third red flag was the management team making it seem as though my degree wasn't substantial enough when they aren't aware what I went through to even complete college. The last red flag was that one of the managers didn't even know the difference between a Bachelors of Arts and a Bachelors of Science. That threw me for a loop because how can you be a manager and have a degree yourself and not be aware of the two? I wouldn't recommend this place solely based on the staff and the lack of diversity. All of the minorities (Black and Hispanic) work as room service or where no one can really see them while the White and Asians work the front desk. I'm almost 100% sure I didn't receive the position based on my skin color due to being Black because I had perfect references and a solid work history.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Hyatt (Albuquerque, NM) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I was called on a Saturday evening for a Sunday afternoon interview, which seemed odd to me. Once I arrived for my interview the gentleman a the front desk called the manager that was to interview, then told him he would be right out. Twenty minutes later he finally comes out of the back offices and escorts me to a table to start the interview. He asks me some basic questions about myself and why I wanted to work in a hotel, specifically this one, which I answered. He then asked me to role play checking someone into the hotel, even though I stated that I had no hotel experience, so I obliged. The remainder of the interview was dominated by him and various rantings about the hotel, the employees, former employees, and his sorted life and background.
