    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Marriott.

    Interview Details

    I was requested to interview for the Boulder Courtyard last week. The hotel, upon entering, was welcoming but did not have a traditional front desk and made me apprehensive about where to go.

    The staff seemed friendly, it took approximately fifteen minutes for my interviewer to finally see me, and the staff griped about a certain component of the job.

    As it turns out this hotel asks that the front desk agents also train in the bistro.

    Reasons for Declining

    I was not interested in cross-training for the bistro, as would be required for the position. Also, the position salary started lower than my current income.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Marriott in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went in for an application. They had it emailed to me and I had to go have it printed and bring it back. Ugh. But fine. I jumped through the loop and I added my resume in instead of completing the application's work history section. I had NO hotel experience just a year or two of retail. I highlighted my customer service skills and my knowledge of basic office equipment and hoped for the best. I got a call for an interview the same day. Interviewer was very nice and relatable. I could see why he was in the hospitality industry. I was asked very few typical interview questions...NONE of them were difficult if you have any home-training. I was asked about my pay expectations, why I wanted to work there, the "tell me about yourself" question, asked what i thought the position would be like, told what it would be like, told about some of the policies, asked if i had any questions, etc. Very basic. Interviewer did most of the talking.

    Walked into a local Marriott and lo and behold the GM was at Front Desk. He gave me app and we conversed briefly. Returned app. Made follow-up call.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Marriott in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online. It took them a couple of weeks to contact me by phone to schedule an interview. I was interviewed by the manager of the hotel. The whole interview lasted maybe 10-15 minutes. She told me the lady who was over the bistro cafe would give me a call for another interview. She never called, but I got offered another job so I didn't follow up.
