    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Charleston, SC
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at InterContinental Hotels in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview is not hard, but not everyone gets hired. It consists of an initial interview, skills test, and a second interview with a mock phone call if you pass the first two parts. It can normally be completed in 1-2 days. Since I had an early first interview, I got everything done in one day and was offered the position for training the following week.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at InterContinental Hotels in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    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

    Human Resource Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Leonard Wood, MO
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at InterContinental Hotels in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.
