    Interview

    Just submitted my resume and salary requirements via gmail for the position. Waiting to hear back if they're interested in inviting me in for a interview. I've heard that SMG is very interested in hiring folks that have facilities/event management experience. I guess I'll wait and see if my professional experience is strong enough for them to overlook my lack of experience in the industry. The role would be a great opportunity though.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at SMG Management.

    Interview

    Interview was pretty straight forward. Mainly they want to know if you can handle stress. The job can be up and down at times, so being able to go with the flow is important. Most of questions they asked were to gauge how well you can do that

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was pretty simple. I had a range of what I would accept. I did get some benefits that they don't usually offer like cell phone allowance.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR about 1 month after submitting resume, 2 interviews, but this is on internal basis. In this case it was / is a small number of employees. Got a quick tour of the facilities. Interview process was fairly laid back, there are a few forms to fill at the end. Felt the start process was a bit rushed.

    Did not feel there was much flexibility or resources for negotiation.
