Theres the phone interview (optional), the one on one interview with a supervisor or manager of the department, then their director or direct line of authority. Near the end of the hiring process, there is a mandatory background and drug test.

    At Your Service Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Marriott Vacation Club (Orlando, FL) in December 2012.

    Interview

    This was one of the best interview processes I had (even though I didn't receive a job offer) I applied on line and about a day later i received a phone call from a Guest Service Manager he basically went over stuff on my resume, asked a couple questions and explained the job descriptions. When I met for the interview it was with the Guest Service Manager and the Front Desk Manager. The two of them were the nicest most down to earth guys I have ever interviewed with. They did not make me feel nervous or anything. The questions got me though, some were easy and others made you think. An easy question was worded to make you think.

    Interview Questions

    • I honestly don't remember they were easy questions but worded to make them harder to answer.   Answer Question

    The initial communication was over the phone and was very fun and interactive. They took the time to learn about me as an individual more than just my experience. The face to face interviews were the same and were very enjoyable. They were also very forward about what the actual job entaled and the pros and cons involved. No surprises.

    In House Vacation Advisor (Call Center) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Marriott Vacation Club (Orlando, FL) in July 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process is fairly straight-forward. You meet with the HR person, whose desk is the reception desk. She is the first person you will speak with coming in. She will speak with you for a bit and then a manager will speak with you as well. A few days later I received a call asking when I would be able to come in for training. The HR lady was surprised that I did not yet know that I had the job.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, hourly pay plus commission

    Tax Accountant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Marriott Vacation Club (Lakeland, FL) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I received a phone from an HR recruiter to set up a time for a phone interview. You will have the phone interview with the same recruiter. You will go through some of the questions from the actual interview. If considered, the recruiter will e-mail a time for a face to face interview with the hiring manager. Typically with MVW, at least in my experience, they do a panel-style interview where you interview with 2 or more managers. Marriott uses the STAR interview format.

    Interview Questions

    • They will ask you situational type questions. For example, they may ask you to tell them about a time where you had a difficult situation with another co-worker and how did you dealt with it. Be sure to give them a "specific" situation, not just a broad response. They will ask you to go into detail if necessary.   Answer Question
