    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Candlewood Suites (Tempe, AZ) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was very relaxed, said they would get back to me by end of week, didn't hear back for two weeks they also made it seem like I would get paid more than what they ended up offering. Very disappointing experience.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Candlewood Suites (Avondale, LA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    None. I responded to an ad on Indeed, was called in, and was hired on the spot.
    They were looking to fill the position immediately, and I was available.
    I first spoke with the shift manager, then the general manager. It was an informal interview.

    Front Desk Agent Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Candlewood Suites.

    Interview

    I was only asked 3 questions, all three were negative. I felt like the general manager just wanted me to know that I was beneath her, no matter how confident I was in my abilities.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Candlewood Suites (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Easy, the manager just talked to me about the job, we have some conversation about my previous jobs, he didn't really ask me any interview questions. He ended up saying we would check with the other managers and let me know. I got a call the next morning from him telling me he liked me and wanted to hire me!

    Front Desk Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Candlewood Suites in April 2012.

    Interview

    Very short interview that lasted about 30 minutes. Pretty much only consisted of learning about the hotel and explaining my availability. There were no behavioral questions asked, simply background questions. Afterward I was given a tour and continued to learn about the hotel as I had no hotel experience. I was called two days later and offered the job. As long as you are available, you will get the job.

    Interview

    Arrived for interview in Manassas to find out that open position was really only for Front Desk Agent. They had no intention of hiring a Front Desk "Supervisor".There should be rules against posting false positons. Additionally, IHG should not allow it.

    I was one of five candidates interviewed. Interviewers were the general manager and the independent owner. The questions were basic interview questions, and everything went very smoothly. Everyone was friendly and they took me on a tour of the place at the completion of the interview. They said they would choose two candidates to return for a second interview, however I ended up not being chosen.. I was notified by email.
