Administrative Assistant

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Marriott.

Interview Details – Applied online through Marriott's website, received a phone call from department head. Preliminary discussion over phone about job role/expectations, my basic background, etc. Set up an in-person interview, many standard questions (Tell me about yourself, Describe a situation when you...) and a great overall interaction with the department head and hiring assistant. I interviewed on a Wednesday & the position was to be filled on that Friday. Called the interviewer for follow-up on Friday (had emailed on Thursday morning) and was not selected for position, but my resume was passed along to the GM for future consideration

Interview Question – "Tell me about a situation when you didn't have enough time to get everything done"   Answer Question

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Bethesda, MD

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Marriott in March 2010.

Interview Details – Marriott's environment was very friendly. The people there understood the culture that Marriott works so diligently at portraying. Interviewing was relatively at ease, and the computer testing was run-of-the-mill. Follow through, regarding contact about the next steps, was lacking, as I called for weeks on end, but had no response. Finally, after about three (3) weeks of persistence, they told me that the position had actually been cancelled.

I applied online and interviewed at Marriott.

Interview Details – Interview was a lot shorter than expected. I was only asked a few typical interview questions. Interviewers made me feel very comfortable and were very polite. Definitely a good experience overall but wish they would have asked more questions and I would have had time to explain myself more.

Interview Question – Explain a time you had to work with a difficult person in a team setting.   Answer Question

You were coached to describe a situation, task, action and result when prompted about certain situations within the workplace. Majority of questions were work related.

Interview Question – How have you dealt with a difficult person?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I negotiated on salary but request was denied over the phone. I accepted position regardless, but was signed off on a higher salary on the first day of orientation. Increase was roughly .70 per hour.
