    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Marriott.

    Interview Details

    Applied online a week earlier and i was called for an interview a couple days after. Showed up a little late due to no parking. I met with assistant manager, she was very nice, and I guess the supervisor, who just sat and studied my resume for 20 minutes. Mostly situational questions.. All went well until they asked me about Sundays, which I said I couldn't work that much due to religious practice. I thought I'd blown it because they seemed really upset about that.
    Right after them I met with the GM who seemed nice enough but basically asked the same questions for 5 mins and rushed off. I thought I didn't get the job but they called me back 3 days later with an offer.

    Senior Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Marriott.

    Interview Details

    One-on-one Interview with VP and Senior Directors, back-to-back. Interview lasted all day, with no break in between. The questions were repetitive and the scheduled kept on switching between the interview panel. The second day I came in it was only hour long with two Senior Directors—one of them was late and barely engaged with me since he was on his phone most of the time. The second on admitted not having read my resume. He asked general background question (that were covered in the resume) and with only three minutes left, asked me if I had any questions for him. Since then, I've reached out to the recruiter and hiring manager but I haven't heard back. The recruiting at Marriott is mostly handled by Aon Hewitt contractors, and they tend not to be very organized in general, but considering this is a hospitality company, I thought it would be nice to least get a "thank you for time email", even if from the system.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Marriott.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for an interview a day after completing the application. The housekeeping supervisor interviewed me. She asked basic questions. Most of the interview she informed me about the company, its goals, and expectations of employees. She went over the job duties and responsibilities. You have to take a drug test, and when the results come back you will be offered the position. Test results come back in 2-4 days. The whole process took about a week.

    Interview Questions
    • What do you find the most challenging part about housekeeping? What qualities do you have that make you a good housekeeper? Do you have experience? The rest of the interview was mainly conversation.   Answer Question

    Guest Services Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Marriott.

    Interview Details

    The two Marriott hotels in my area are mass-hiring in the beginning of the year, and since I was out of a job, I decided to interview for a fronk dest position. I interviewed with the Guest Services Manager and the Assistant General Manager of the hotel. The interview went very smoothly for me because I have a lot of work experience and have done a lot of interviews. If you have a lot of experience working at a hotel or in customer service this would be a great position for you. I believe the reason why I didn't get the job was because I was very over-qualified and I wanted a salary that's higher than they are willing to offer. But I wasn't heart-broken since one week later I received a job offer from another company.

    Overall, great hotel, great people, and if you get hired I'm sure you would have a lot of opportunities to advance at Marriott since they have hotels everywhere in the world.
