    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Marriott in July 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed with front desk manager and general manager on the same day. The interview was easy. Both employers were really nice. Questions were based on your resume. They told me they would call me by Friday. But I didn't received any calls after interview.And two weeks passed, no reply at all. So as one of the comments said, I finally understand that "call you later" is a bad signal.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marriott.

    Interview

    Outdated screening process. They use questionaires that claim to determine if you are suitable for a position. However, if you don't answer middle of the road you get thru. The process is a joke. Also, the process takes too long. Online application, Online questions, phone interview, then multiple in person interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • If you made an error in preparing materials for your boss to present and on the day of the presentation you informed your boss but they chose to present anyway would you bring this to the attention of someone at a higher level, let it go, or disclose at the question and answer portion of the presentation that the information has been found to be incorrect.   2 Answers
