    Banquet Waiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manila, Manila (Philippines)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manila, Manila (Philippines)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Shangri-La.

    Interview Details

    Hiring consisted of applying by emailing resume, then scheduling for interview. The interview was brief. The interviewer looked like he was more interested in looks rather than academic background. I was hired on the spot. What we didn't like was the fact that this hotel does not hire rank-and-file employees direct but through recruitment companies so that it can go around the labor laws in terms of employment security and employees benefits.

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Shangri-La.

    Interview Details

    First interview: HR Ass. Manager, Second interview: HR Director and Department Manager/Division Head. Third interview: General Manager. Very thorough interview with attention to what the applicant is saying. It's definitely not a "follow a set number of questions on a paper" type of interview. They care for the applicant's motivation vs. experience. They hite for attitude.
