    Non-Gaming Audit/Accounting Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MGM Resorts International in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for this position and received a phone call for a request to take an Excel test at the corporate location. This was also the job location. The environment was very upscale professional and a bit stuffy for my taste. The administrative assistant who met with me was quiet and not overly friendly but polite.

    Interview Questions
    • The test consisted of about 12 tabs on an Excel spreadsheet that was created by someone at MGM. It was not a Kenexa or other third-party type test. The position stated that you needed intermediate knowledge. It was not a success for me because I have used intermediate formulas but on a very limited basis so I got confused on some of the questions. But for someone who has worked with Excel on a daily basis using pivot tables, vlookups and other types of intermediate functions you should be fine. I politely took myself out of the running as I was unable to finish the one-hour test on Excel 2003 and Excel 2010 on time.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at MGM Resorts International in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online; within 30 days received an interview request; interviewed; within 30 days of interview received pre-employment drug test request. I am now hoping for an offer letter (?). Interview questions were "standard" questions from HR; interviewer did not deviate; which I think promotes fairness across interviews.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at MGM Resorts International in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was at the Mgm/Mirage International buildings. The interviewer was very nice but was not expecting another person to be in the room. The interviewer seemed to have overbooked his day and about 20 minutes into the interview, he said he needed to go and had another meeting in 5 minutes. The environment seemed fun and laid back.

    Graphic Design Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at MGM Resorts International in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was frankly surprised to get invited for an interview due to my lack of experience (even though this is an entry-level position compared to the other positions they have available). So we set up and interview. I went to their headquarters and was greeted by the person in charge. He took me into a room with 2 other members of his team, both are web/graphic designers.

    The actual interview was average, however, being new to interviews, I stumbled on a few questions that should've been a snap. If you're experienced at interviewing or have a naturally prepared personality, then you're probably going to ace this. I also had to bring in my portfolio for them to review as well. They are very laid-back people and not people in suits and blazers.

    I did not get an offer, but it was a valuable experience.

    What I didn't realize was how desperate the Aria Hotel was for managers. Little discussion during the interview, then a few days later a job offer was made.
