    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Omni Hotels.

    Interview Details

    After submitting application, two phone interviews, one a personality test, then narrowed down to 25 person group interview, all day and into evening, totaling 15 hours, 13 at the facility, 2 on the phone. Individually interviewed by 3 different people.They were very professional and handled the group interview process with skill, efficiency, and variety of speakers. They left very little, if anything, unanswered. The Q&A section mainly consisted of repeating information previously stated or of a specific individual concern.The catered lunch was generous and tasty. They were very skilled at asking questions to discern personality traits, work ethics and employment motives I interviewed under KSL Resorts ownership not Omni Hotels.

    Reasons for Declining

    I would have loved to have been able to accept the position. Declined for several reasons, 1) no relocation help 2) long training period at hourly wage, 3) 80 hour of additional CEU's required in 8 month period of time( may be a month off in either direction) 4) compensation potential below industry average. I simply could not afford to take the position. Maybe after the first year, I could have been able to afford to support myself. The compensation may have been fair in an area with a lower of cost of living. They seemed to offer fairly generous perks, and while I understand one must consider them as part of their total income, perks don't pay the power bill.

    Last interview is with the GM.

    Interview Questions
    • Standard questions about work ethic and situations. Mostly about difficult situations and customers. Frontline managers are more laid back interviews while higher up executives are stiff and robotic.   Answer Question

    Assistant Facility Manager - New Hotel Facility In Nashville Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.

    Senior Assistant Director of Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Nashville, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Omni Hotels in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online then attended a Job Fair with a multi-stage screening process. First waited until my 'number' was called. Then faced an initial screening interview, followed by an interview with the hiring manager. Although very long screening process, the recruiting team was very friendly and very professional in everyway. Although I did not receive an offer, I believe I made a very positive impression and felt very good about the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Since you do not have hotel industry experience, you would not be a good fit for the position. You are overqualified for the lower positions and would likely get bored. What do you think?   View Answer

    Director of Food and Beverage Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Omni Hotels in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Process was quick and positive, all until the interview was over. I was brought in for a day and given the chance to meet the GM, HR Manager and a few other key players. I was not introduced to the F&B leads, however, and never saw the offices. Was rushed through the day and didn't get the time I felt was needed to really know me.

    Interview Questions
    • Can't think of one specifically, but all questions were very vague from the GM. He was obviously looking for a certain look and attitude, as opposed to understanding the skills/background of me.   View Answer
