    I have been working at Drury Hotels full-time

    Pros

    Drury has good benefits. They take care of you very well. It is an actual team environment.

    Cons

    If you don't want anything but a 9-5 desk job, this isn't the industry you want to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Everything has been great! I feel welcomed and encouraged and motivated to work harder when I work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Drury Hotels in July 2014.

    Interview

    Called the hotel one day to see if they were hiring (I have a lot of experience working for hotels and I'd heard good things about them, so I called to check about once a month). They were needed someone full-time at the front desk. I was told to apply online. I did the online application which includes all of the basic information along with an assessment that anyone should be able to pass (common sense questions like "If you discovered a coworker of yours was stealing, what would you do?"). Received a phone call from the assistant manager within two days of completing the online assessment. Set up an interview with her. That interview was very basic; a lot of the standard questions you should expect if you have been on interviews before. She then shook my hand and said they would let me know. I received another phone call about a week later asking me to come in an interview with the general manager. If you was a little more in depth with questions that focused more on my experience in the hospitality industry. Once that interview was finished, the assistant manager (who interviewed me the first time) came in and administered a drug test (mouth swab) and had me fill out paperwork consenting to a background check. I took this to mean I was likely going to be hired, as background checks and drug tests costs money, and typically companies don't want to spend that money unless they're at the very least considering you for the position. That was done, the assistant manager told me "we are still interviewing a few people so we will let you know", which is usually a bad sign, but since I got the drug test and background check I remained positive. About another week went by and I was contacted again by the assistant manager. When I saw there number pop up on my phone, I got excited. Turns out they wanted to interview me yet again, this time with the district/regional manager (I'm not sure which one he was). That interview was scheduled for a few days later. The interview with him was by far the most comfortable, laid-back interview of the three. I got the impression that I was essentially hired and they just wanted his stamp of approval for. The interview itself went very well. He told me "you should hear from us next week". Four days later I was becoming anxious because I hadn't heard from them. Then they called me. I was offered the job and asked to start in a few days. Since I have several years of experience, particularly in hotel management, I was offered a much more competitive salary than I expected for a simple front desk position.

    Interview Questions

    • Again, the questions were fairly easy. The most difficult one was probably when I was asked to name what my faults are.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was initially told the starting salary was about $9.25 before my first interview. I was ultimately offered $11.50, due to my experience, with the possibility of a raise after 60 days and after a year.
