Food and Beverage Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hyatt in June 2013.
Interview Details – Phone interview and then in person. Three in total. Was connected to hr through my college advisor. Started with a phone interview and progressed to in-person interview. Was more like getting to know each other rather than an interview format.
Interview Question – Why do you want to work for Hyatt? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation
Very Easy Interview
Bell Attendant Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Hyatt.
Interview Details – Interview went very easy due to it being Sumer time and short staff along with my experience. I was able to do all 3 interviews the same day and hired a few days later. Always go in being honest in the hotel industry. If you're not excited about the job you're applying for in the hospitality business then you're looking in the wrong place for a job and you won't be happy long.
Interview Question – There were not any difficult questions for me because of my experience and enthusiasm for the job. Maybe one surprise was when the GM asked what promotion goals I had and I said this was what I wanted to do. He responded with isn't it much harder to be a bellman these days? View Answer
Negotiation Details – No negotiation for a minimum wage job with tips.
Storeroom Attendant Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Hyatt in February 2014.
Interview Details – I was caught off guard with a phone interview. Called two days ago but wisely let it go to voicemail as i did not recognize the number. Called back today and spoke to the HR person. She was nice on the phone but i again did not expect a phone interview as this was not stated in the message on my voicemail. What i expected was to be set up with a 1-1 interview. I was courteous and she did come across a little abrasive towards the end. I will probably not apply for a job at any Hyatt again,
