    Apply online on their webpage. They will send an email asking for a date and time to call you, that was after a week in my case, asking to chose a scheduled date and time to call. If they, by any chance don't call you, try to write them (HR) so they can keep you in mind.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Waldorf Astoria.

    Interview Details

    very structured and detailed about the potion. He was open for conversation about things other than the job/work. The one bad or negative is that from the time you finish application to the day you start is an average of 30-45 days. I know for fact that many good people are lost because of the long process.

    Massage Therapist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Waldorf Astoria.

    Interview Details

    I submitted app. online and called them. They called back for 1st interview. I was not called back for 2nd interview and never had an opportunity to give them a sample massage, even though I had an outstanding 18-year history in massage therapy and outstanding record of work with tourists from all walks of life. I had worked in two other spas similar to theirs for years. I then received a "Dear John" form letter that implied I would not be considered, ever. The only negative remark they made that could be a reason for rejecting me was that I had worked for a 4-Star hotel in the past, and THEY were a 5-Star hotel. They said there was a BIG difference between a 4 and 5 star hotel!!!

    Was called by HR to come in for an interview after submitting a resume. The first interview was with that recruiter, and the second being with the security manager. The questions were typical interview questions, but made you think; pretty in depth. Must have excellent customer service and people skills.
