    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (North Atlanta, GA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively short. The HR Recruiter emailed me to set up a time for me to come in and meet with the hiring manager and one of his partners. I then had a panel interview with the hiring manager, the colleague and the HR Recruiter. Questions were expected given the job description. After the initial round, the hiring manager asked to talk to me on the phone regarding two further questions. Upon going through that stage, the hiring manager decided to rescope the position

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (Fort Leonard Wood, MO) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Panel interview with General Manager and two other Assistant Managers. The on-line application was easy. A phone call set up the interview. Prior to the interview the panel did not review the application well. When I explained my availability date, that was the deal breaker. The application had my availability date on it, so that should have eliminated me from consideration based on the timeline to start they wanted.

    Interview Questions

    • Is there a difference between being a leader and being a manager?   Answer Question

    Director of Catering Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (Austin, TX) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Initial interview was by phone and was cordial. It lasted about 30 minutes and consisted of questions related to my experience and attitude. The second interview was in person, over lunch. The interviewer seemed awkward and failed to ask many questions. It was up to me to try and engage the interviewer by asking specific questions. Clearly, the interviewer was not a "numbers person" based on the unlikely answers I received. The interview was followed by a property tour and meeting with the General Manager. The interview with the GM lasted only about 10 minutes and consisted of very general questions about my experience. The final interview was with the HR person and was very general in nature.

    Interview Questions

    • I was surprised that neither the GM nor the initial interviewer asked any difficult questions. I expected questions related to specific marketing strategies I had successfully employed in the past or specific questions related to sales performance.   Answer Question
