    Computer Engineer/Support Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at MGM Grand Hotel (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    This all depends on the property. My experience was very smooth and relaxed, no insane questions to answer; You know the ones... "If you were on a deserted island, what one thing would you want to bring with you?" ... yeah, none of that non-sense. Here they are really good about actually reading your resume' and asking questions about anything that might be missing from the resume that might be relevant to the position.

    Negotiation

    If you have salary in mind, and you know no one else would accept less. Hold your ground. If you're disparate, they'll know.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at MGM Grand Hotel (Las Vegas, NV) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. 3 Days later got a call back for an interview. Went to the interview 2 days later. Received email for drug test.. Time between applying and obtaining the job - 10 days total. I have found out that their background check is very intensive. This may be specific to the department that you apply for. As for the background check, they contact all personal references that you provide them. They will look in every nook and cranny.

    Interview Questions

    • What makes you want to be an MGM Employee? Seems relatively simple, but as with any job interview, make sure to read up on the company (i.e., core values, number of employees Worldwide, volunteerism, etc.) The more you know, the better it is to understand WHY you want to represent the company.   Answer Question

    Special Events Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MGM Grand Hotel (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    The interview was conducted by three Special Events Coordinators. We sat around a table and they each took turns reading questions from a list. As you answered they would scribble away. The girls were nice and the questions were standard. They cared about cash handling and teamwork skills a lot. There really aren't very many skills necessary for this position.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no unexpected questions. As usual the "What is your greatest weakness?" question was the most "difficult."   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MGM Grand Hotel (Las Vegas, NV) in October 2009.

    Interview

    After the application was processed I was contacted by e-mail to set up a telephone interview. The interview took place a few days later. It was an easy process, with no complications or hoops to jump through. Everyone was friendly and polite. I spoke with a representative and most of the conversation revolved around my experience. It was determined that my experience, while relevant, was not extensive enough to continue the interview. The interviewer was very professional and polite.
