Night Auditor Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Omni Hotels in February 2014.
Interview Details – After climbing the ladder from Bellman, to minibar attendant, security to concierge- I expressed desire to get behind the front desk and be more of a part of the guests arrival and experience at Omni. After some verbal expression and emails about my interest, the front office manager offered me an interview to take the job. Questions were posed on possible guest complaints or complications and I answered them accordingly. The interview involved two upper management associates to provide a more diverse set of opinions. The interview was very professional, and likewise very comfortable and laid back. The interview chair was very comfortable.
Interview Question – The safety of a guest is in question. Their door is dead bolted with a "Do not Disturb" at 2am, but reports of distress have been heard from the room by other hotel patrons. There is no answer on the hotel room phone. What next actions do you take? Why? View Answer
Finance LID Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Omni Hotels in May 2014.
Interview Details – I applied through their website and received a callback a week later from a private number at 6pm on a Friday. The caller asked if I could do a phone interview for the following Monday.
The phone interview came in two parts. One was with HR and the other was with the Director of Finance. HR was nice as usual but the Director of Finance seemed very high strung and busy.
The HR interview was the basic interview: Tell me about yourself, Why do you want to work for Omni?
The Director of Finance had more in depth questions about the position and ended the conversation to state that there was internal interest...aka they had they're guy. They offered me another position that seemed to fit my skills, but with a lower salary.
Interview Question – Would you be willing to take a position that had a lower salary? Answer Question

Assistant Facility Manager - New Hotel Facility In Nashville Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Omni Hotels.
Interview Details – Mass hiring event - a zoo. When I arrived there was little organization and no signage. I was 30 minutes ahead of the announced start and a queue of 50 people was lined up inside a locked building.....a nice guy let me in to join the crowd. All in line were pre checked for printed applications, etc and then sent to a holding room/pen for further interview. I felt like an animal. Prior to the hiring event I had to spend 2 hours online taking a series of tests and answering questions focused on character and math abilities. Ridiculous for someone with a college degree and 20 yrs experience in the marketplace.
