    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (Dunwoody, GA).

    Interview

    Someone emailed me for an in-person interview. I met with the Director, it went well and pretty casual. I just described my past experience within the industry. After that, I had a 2nd "meeting" not so much of an interview with another person on the team. Both times, it was more casual
