    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Marriott (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    LONG. Had 3 interviews, was flown to a destination for a final interview with all the other finalists from different schools across the region. Accommodations were paid for and were very nice. As long as you have your STAR method down to a science, you will do fine.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Marriott in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, didn't receive any notification until two weeks later, I thought my application was forgotten or something. I actually got a call from who I believe was the supervisor asking to schedule an interview. Once scheduled I arrived early, had my interview on time, with everything going well. She asked basic questions, asked about my availability, etc. She also gave me her business card telling me she'll follow up within the week since they were still conducting interviews. Ended up getting an email from Marriott telling me that I wasn't chosen.

    Hostess Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Marriott (Kansas City, MO) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was really relaxed and everyone I met was super nice! I didn't get asked any hard questions, honestly, but when the second person joined the interview mid-way, the questions were repetitive almost exactly, so I felt like I was repeating myself at the end. The HR lady was the first person I met with, and she didn't ask me a single question, just told me everything about the position in a monotone voice. She seemed a lot less enthusiastic about her job than anyone else there. I honestly thought I had the job by the end of the interview... they escorted me out though and its been a couple weeks and didn't receive a rejection email or anything. I don't know what else they were expecting, I couldn't have done any better at my interview, and it was for a Hostess position which a monkey could do. I think they are just overly picky apparently because they are constantly posting for every position online at the one Downtown. Which is a shame because I was completely qualified.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Marriott (Albany, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied a couple weeks ago and got an interview two weeks later. It was pretty straight forward standard questions I was first interviewed by one person and then I was interviewed shortly after by the GM. They generally ask the same questions. It was definitely a friendly atmosphere I really like my potential bosses and it's exciting that they do plan on cross training their workers as front desk but also at the bistro. Really great company

    Interview

    Interviewed with the Director of Sales and GMs. They Never got back to me ...yes or no.. finally after over 6 weeks and many unreturned phone calls and emails I sent the GM a message on LinkedIn. Next day the Director of Sales calls me and leaves a VM asking me call back, I did and off course no response again.... Disappointed to see a Marriott brand in the NY metro area so unresponsive to prospective employees.

    Was hired on the spot. They really liked me. The guy and I just seemed to get along. Once I got there though, I realized I was hired because it became clear to me they needed some serious help with their customer service standards.
