    Supervisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Interstate Hotels in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    First interview was ridiculous. I had 2 total. First interview was with HR and she was good but there were two people in there that I would assume were also hospitality people but the nature of the questions from them were confusing as if they worked in a dining room, they wouldn't have asked such non relevant questions. Found out after I got hired that they were from accounting and that the only restaurant knowledge they had was eating in one. That should have been my warning. Yes, I got the job. But after the 2nd interview.

    Interview Questions

    Assistant General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Interstate Hotels in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Two separate interviews, one with the General Manager and one with the Director of Sales. Both were straight forward (nothing "tricky") and focused on past work history, future goals, customer services skill sets, employee training style/capabilities (lots of turnover in this industry), etc.

    Job was offered within two days (accepted), salary (competitive), drug test passed (yeah, they make you take one, which makes sense considering it's a money-handling position - both hard currency and AR/AP).

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Initial offer of salary + benefits was very competitive and I accepted after one day to reflect.
