    Senior Finance Manager Interview Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Host Hotels & Resorts (Bethesda, MD) in April 2013.


    I had a phone interview with them, it went well. They have a beautiful facility. I went in for an interview and it was very quick, the interview lasted less than 3 minutes. I assumed they had no interest in hiring me at all once I met the hiring manager. They promptly made me take an online finance exam which consisted of questions that I hadnt touched since college.
