Interviewed at Marriott
Interview Details – I went in to the hotel at the time and date we arranged via phone call, I sat down with the Assistant Manager and the Front Desk Lead. It wasn't stressful.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Marriott in March 2012.
Interview Details – 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?
Interview Question – Describe the most difficult selling situation you encountered in which you were unsuccessful. View Answer
Reason for Declining – Offer was for a lower level position at 50% of my current salary. It felt insulting.

I applied online and interviewed at Marriott.
Interview Details – Applied online. Called to check on application. Didn't hear back for about 2.5 weeks, finally got a call for an interview. Interviewed with the person who contacted me and the GM (did not know this beforehand). I was expecting the STAR method due to all of the other reviews, but instead the interview was very relaxed and informal. I guess it depends on the property you apply at and the staff there. It was the best interview I have ever had, and we got along great. Yet, I received the lovely rejection email. I really don't think I could have done anything differently; maybe they had an internal hire. Despite this, it was an overall positive experience and I will apply for future openings.
Interview Question – Only STAR question asked was how I handled a difficult customer. Answer Question
