Marketing Director Interview

Marketing Director

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

Interview Details – The person interviewing had not read my resume. The interview was conducted with general/open relevant questions. I wish the interviewer had taken the time to see my reuse in detail and allow me the opportunity to discuss specifics. I feel that I did not have a fair chance.

Interview Question – How to deal with a very difficult boss   View Answer

Assistant Executive Housekeeping Supervisor Interview

Assistant Executive Housekeeping Supervisor
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.

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

Group Sales Manager Interview

Group Sales Manager
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.

Management Trainee Interview

Management Trainee

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Marriott.

Interview Details – Long and exhaustive interview process. Every move you make is noted. Ask a lot of questions. Be prepared to give specific examples to behavioral questions. The interviews alone are not that long, however there is a lot of waiting involved. There is a recruiter available to you at all times for questions and advice, which was very helpful.

Interview Question – There was a mixer with company managers and executives from all over. Most interviewees thought this was free time, but it is a test. Be sure to interact with as many people as possible and ask questions. Be noticed and remembered. DO NOT drink alcohol at the bar, even though it is available.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation as far as salary. You can have some choice in geographical placement, but it all depends on availability.
