    Duty Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Jumeirah in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    It was an international intracompany transfer. The position was open online, a manager knew me and referred me. I received a phone call for an interview. It was pleasant and not intimidating, probably because the manager who I was talking to, knew the person that referred me and completely trusted her.
    It was more to gauge my personality and if I fitted in the team, in this particular case.
    It took a little over a week to get the process started, and a few months with visa etc for me to come to the US. The impression I had from the interviewer and future manager was that I was in good hands. Everything I had hoped for to get with Jumeirah, I got fairly easily. This includes being promoted 5 times in 8 years of service.

    Was fairly straightforward. I was referred by an employee, and had worked with them before. 3 Interviews, Hiring manager, Human Resources and General Manager, all on the same week. 2 weeks later, i was informed I made it. Then negotiations for perks and benefits. There was a significant wait time for visa processing as its quite a complicated task.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Jumeirah.

    Interview Details

    Company sent to HR reps to university for interviews. Great recruitment video and marketing PR, bubbly and enthusiastic presentation. The alarm bells should have started ringing when 100% of those interviewed got offered jobs....sort of defeats the purpose of them coming all the way to europe

    Director of Brand Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dubai (United Arab Emirates)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dubai (United Arab Emirates)
    Application Details

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Jumeirah in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    Inital email communication internally to pre-qualified candidates followed by an application process. General session with colleagues interested in the position to go through person spec and job description. Then short list for interviews with chief officer and encumbent in the role. Interview was a bit intimidating in the corporate office and given that this was a new role expectations were high. Follow up conversation with the person doing the role was helpful and gave the opportunity to speak in a less formal manner over coffee.
