    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Westin.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the company's website and received a call that they were interested in interviewing within a few days. The initial interview was very informal with the director of finance and assistant director of finance. I was asked to return for the behavioral interview with an HR manager and the another individual from the finance department. They asked the typical, "name a time when..., describe a situation where..." behavioral interview questions. Most of the questions dealt with describing a times in a leadership role. I was told I would hear back within a week or two. About a month later I was informed they decided to hire someone internally for the position.
