Helpful (2)Declined OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Marriott (Arlington, VA) in March 2012.
A highly scripted process was in place when interviewed for a Sales position. The overall scenario and interaction felt very sterile - quite unlike the natural rapport building that happens in sales interactions - and in most Marriott interactions, inside and outside HQ. The process appeared to feel uncomfortable for the panel of interviewers as well. I wonder if they learn what they really need to know about a candidate to judge their capabilities for a job?
- Describe the most difficult selling situation you encountered in which you were unsuccessful. 1 Answer
Reasons for Declining
Offer was for a lower level position at 50% of my current salary. It felt insulting.

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Marriott (Rogers, AR) in September 2011.
My initial contact was with the AGM. I was responding to a networking lead. I was given the business card for the sales manager. I made contact and received a phone interview the same day. I scheduled a personal interview the following day. This interview lasted a little over an hour. It involved both the GM and Sales Manager. They did most of the talking and outlined the expectations of the position and the work culture. I believe that this company has very high expectations for the DOS position, and that the work culture is very much like a family.

First met with the GM, then went back and met with the Regional HR Director, then went for a 3rd in person interview with the Regional GM and another properties DOS.

I was head hunted for the role so can't help with this one
- Nothing unexpected. My results. Answer Question
Simple. I asked for more money and they said yes, but there again they did head hunt me!
