    Guest Services Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Interview process can be very quick with all hiring managers being available to meet with the candidates in the same day, however, that is the only good thing about the process. Once the candidate has been given the green light to be hired, Human Resources takes a long time to process background/references and an even longer time setting up an orientation date which could be as long as 3-4 weeks since the candidate first came in to interview because they don't want to waste their time working with small orientation groups. Due to the length of time it takes to finally get going, we've seen wonderful candidates accept other jobs that will start them faster.

    Interview Questions
    • As a manager, how will you contribute to the operation without adding any unnecessary costs or expenses?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Due to the fact that Omni prefers to low-ball their candidates to keep their labor dollars down, there is no negotiating. If you refuse the initial offer, they will not counter and will rescind the offer altogether and proceed with other candidates until someone does accept the low offer.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Omni Hotels.

    Interview Details

    My initial correspondence with the HR department at the hotel I applied to was very detailed. I was applying for one of the leadership training programs along with several others and the first round of interviews was conducted in a 2 person panel style. I met with two sets of managers from both Operations and HR. I then received a call back for a one on one with the HR Director, which was much more informal. After that I had a call with the corporate director and the GM at the property for a total of 5 interviews!

    I never felt like I was being left in the dark or misled in any way. All of the managers were very professional!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Omni Hotels.

    Interview Details

    I had three interviews in about 1-2 weeks. The interviews felt professional, yet casual. I was very comfortable during all three. They called me about an hour after my third interview to offer me the job! I have been working there over a year now and it has been a fun ride along the way. You meet a lot of people in this sort of business, but your co-workers definitely become your family. They're my best friends now!

    Interview Questions
    • If you come prepared, the questions aren't too difficult or unexpected. Just know who you are and be prepared to sell what you believe in/do best.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Definitely make sure you talk about hours per week. I know some employees who aren't getting enough hours and some that are working 5-6+ ten hour days.

    Finance LID Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.
