I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Marriott in September 2012.

Interview Details – It's a long process. Starting with the recruiter, then 1 on 1, then a group grilling by 4 people, then an iq test, personality test and basic aptitude test. Seriously, it was for a Front Desk Manager's position. I understand, yet it was a bit much.

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Marriott in January 2014.

Senior Quality Assurance Analyst Interview

Washington, DC

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Marriott in July 2013.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, I was hired at my current salary and benefits level.

Assistant Executive Housekeeping Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Employee
Canton, OH

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Marriott in January 2014.

Interview Details – The interview process went easy, I was greeted by the Executive Housekeeper and the AGM, who were both very nice and thorough with the job description. They interviewed me off of a company standard questionnaire, and proceeded to ask me the normal questions about how I would handle certain situations, and how I function a s a team player. I then went on a tour through the property and was shown the rooms and the public areas, as well as met a few of the employees. I sat back down with the ladies and discussed availability and transportation. The AGM then told me I would be notified of a conformation of a background check and told me I would be notified 5-7 days of the results.

Interview Question – "What mistake have you made in the past, and what did you do to fix it?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation, but an hourly rate and after 90 days and a 3% increase plus benefits.

Group Sales Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Boston, MA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Marriott in February 2012.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time where you were unable to win over a team to gain buy-in over a major business decision.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was pretty rigid, could tell they manage payroll closely but was still a fair competitive offer based on others I was given at Hilton, Hyatt.
