    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.

    It was OK. You need to understand the market you're going into very well or else they will grill you with questions and know you don't know what you're talking about.

    Night Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cleveland, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Marriott.

    Interview Details

    Communication was excellent. I always knew where I was along the hiring process. Most difficult thing to understand is that they use a script for every interview. Most are tailored to the specific job but as a general consensus, they use the same format for everything from Cook to Engineer to LP.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really difficult. They ask mostly 3 part questions. Situation you were involved in. how you dealt with it, and the ultimate outcome of it. This is pretty standard for all the interview questions that they will ask, so jus tbe prepared for it.   Answer Question
