    Event Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Hornblower Cruises and Events.

    Interview Details

    Very easy interview. I guess they have not many people applying. Not professional at all. Dressed professionally but not necessary. Employee handbook doesn't match what upper management strive for. It seems that they don't care following the rules written by them.

    Interview Questions
    • Not difficult at all. I had questions similar to this one. Are you getting sea sick being on a boat?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Expected a lot for not enough pay.
