    Behavioral focused questions: great recruitment team. they are trained to weed out people who just want to get it (and they wont make it past the first round). it's all about relationship so make it a point to connect with the employer

    Interview

    The recruiter emailed me first to schedule a phone interview and two weeks later the hiring manager interviewed me also by phone. They basically asked questions about experiences on the resume and talked about the responsibilities of the position. They made a decision a week later. The whole process was pretty quick.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was pretty standard with 2-4 behavior questions and without extremely unexpected questions.   Answer Question

    Tour Guide Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (Atlanta, GA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Basically, they'll ask you why you want to be a tour guide, how you handle stressful situations and what you would ultimately like to be doing under Turner Broadcasting. The interview will coax you into thinking that this position will open a world of opportunity for you in the world of media - don't take the bait. Once the job is yours, you'll find management not as supportive as they were in the interview. Some members of the panel take the hiring process extremely serious, which is ironic given the amiable nature of tourism, and some are much friendlier.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (Atlanta, GA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I got a telephone call about one week after I applied online. I was asked a bunch of questions ranging from professional to slightly personal (nothing too deep, just likes/dislikes, where you're from, went to college, etc.) over the course of about 15-20 minutes. The top of the salary range was $50k at that time, but it was obvious that they didn't really want to pay that much as the conversation progressed. I was told my resume would be pushed to the next level/person and to expect a call to schedule an in-person interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of the ordinary really. They did want a detailed/lengthy explanation of all the duties performed at each position listed on my resume, some dating back 20 years. The information on the resume needed to be fully explained. I guess the most difficult question was when they gave a salary range and asked what I was looking for, I chose a number close to the top of that range based on my experience. I now understand this is a "no-no" in job hunting these days but I had just gotten back into the hunt after 10 years in the same position and what they offered was still $15k less than I was making. I was asked would I consider taking less. When I refused, they asked why.   1 Answer
