I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Waldorf Astoria in September 2011.
Interview Details – I had emailed my resume, but the interviewer had not reviewed it. I had actually many, many years of experience in massage therapy, and an absolutelly stellar reputation with clients from practically all backgrounds. I had worked extensively with high-end tourists for myself at a beach community, and for five years at a 4-star hotel. I had loved working in these places, told the interviewer so, and told her that I had excellent references there. I also had quite a few testimonials from clients raving about my work. But, all the interviewer seemed to be interested in was that THEY were a FIVE-star hotel, and that I had ONLY worked in FOUR-star hotel. She said a 5-star hotel was MUCH different, and implied that I was very inferior because I had only worked in a 4-star hotel. I sent what I thought was a very nice follow-up letter. They then immediately sent me a form letter saying they weren't interested, with no explanation given. I could not even get a second interview where I could give someone a sample massage, which is absolutely critical to understand the quality and skill of the therapist being interviewed. I send another follow-up email to the manager, asking for someone to please call me with an explanation for why I had been turned down, and no one responded. I suspect that they either had someone already picked out who worked at the Astoria, but just got her license, or that they really preferred to hire very young people who they thought would work cheaply. Most of these places, even the big tourist places that charge big bucks, pay the therapists very little.
