Night Auditor Interview

Night Auditor
Cleveland, OH

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Marriott in June 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted by someone from the front desk and set up an interview. He didn't ask any questions, he just made the appointment. They were doing flash interviews--about 15 minutes--of several people, and we were interviewed in the lobby within earshot of the other candidates. A little awkward to have your competition listening in, but I understand that this was simply due to the size of the location. I was told they still had three more days of interviews and that there wouldn't be a decision for a while.

Interview Question – They asked me to tell them about myself & give them some background, and then it was all STAR questions ("Name a time when...").   Answer Question

Front Office Manager Interview

Front Office Manager

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Marriott.

Interview Details – Standard board type interview, because I was out of state the initial interview was a conference call between me and 4 others. They immediately told me at end of interview they wanted to meet me and set up a second interview for me to head up there. 2nd interview was between myself and 4 others, was offered the position after they called all my references and all of my past employers. So do not lie on your resume, they called all of them even as far back as 10 years ago.

Negotiation Details – Negotiated early performance review with pay raise.

Front Desk Associate Interview

Front Desk Associate
Franklin, TN

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Marriott in December 2011.

Interview Details – Interview was quick. Applied and heard back within a week. The questions were not difficult. It was my first job out of college. The only difficult question was the one below. I'd never had any experience with problem resolution as it relates to customer service experiences, so I was caught off guard. Essential, because as a front desk associate, this can make or break you.

Interview Question – What would you do if a guests stay was not up to their expectations?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Accepted the base pay.
