    Customer Relations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mesa, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Choice Hotels (Mesa, AZ).

    Interview

    Very slow process. Received email from recruiter asking if I could do a phone interview. I responded immediately and then didn't hear back for a few days. When I did, the email was later in the day and it asked if 10am the next morning or 1pm the next afternoon would work. I responded immediately that both would. I hear back the next day at around 4pm asking for my availability the following week. Finally connect with a recruiter and am moved on to a phone interview with a lead specialist. Setting that up was slow moving as well. Had a great conversation and he really liked my experience and wanted me to do an onsite with a manager. Again, scheduling that appointment was a slow process. The manager I interviewed with only had experience with Choice and it was within reservations. I honestly feel my background with Starwood and Hilton was intimidating to her. I made comments and asked questions about the company (like the current rebranding efforts of Clarion) to which she seemed utterly aware. Hospitality is my passion, I love travel, I know my stuff. In any event, no offer was made and the recruiter went ghost on me. Very disappointed in how they handle themselves.

    Systems Performance Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Choice Hotels (Phoenix, AZ) in May 2017.

    Interview

    My interview with Choice Hotels went very smoothly. I had a one-on-one interview with a gentleman that I felt was a great representation of the company. By that I mean, I felt welcomed rather than threatened during my interview. We spoke for about 30 minutes then toured the facility after. I met a couple associates, both of which had been there 10+ years, which I feel speaks volume for company morale. If another opportunity comes available within the company, I will be applying again.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I met a recruiter at a career fair and applied for a software engineer intern position. Within days of applying I received an email that the same recruiter spoke to me at the career fair and would like to set up an initial phone interview. The email asked for the two best times that would work for me from a list of available times. I replied back with those times. Wednesday came, and I never received a phone call. Friday came, still no phone call. I tried following up to see if I could reschedule, but they never answered. I even traveled to the office the next week hoping to get an interview scheduled, but I was told the people in charge were going out of town a whole week at the corporate headquarters in Maryland. I continued to follow up weekly, but they seemed unwilling to reply, except for a minimal response of "when will you graduate?"--still nothing rescheduled. Finally, today I received a copied and pasted email saying they do not see an immediate fit with my skills and qualifications, which is absurd given that a phone interview had been scheduled and they never followed through.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Choice Hotels (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Phone Interview with recruiter, phone interview with manager, in person interview with manager, in person interview with peer manager. Did not receive any further feedback or calls after last interview, even though it was positive, they do not even let you know that you are not selected, just have to guess. Follow up with recruiter went no where, did not have any courtesy to let me know.

    Area Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Choice Hotels in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Several days later heard from a screening recruiter. Spent about 30 minutes on the phone with the recruiter. About a week later received an email asking if I could fly to a panel interview session about 3 weeks later. Travel arrangements were booked by the Choice Hotels. Spent an entire day in a series of interview sessions. Met with 2 people at a time (Other Area Directors and VP) throughout the morning. Had a 'working lunch' with the team where all applicant could ask questions of the panel. Returned to the interview session to do a 30-minute writing assignment and then present a 5 to 10-minute case study to the panel. While they often would laugh about it - the panel was at times negative about their hotels and brands. Didn't seem to be proud of their hotels. At the end of the day - no information was provided on next steps or timeline. After 4 weeks of waiting and follow up emails to the recruiter, received a generic "Thank you for applying" email.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Choice Hotels (Rockville, MD).

    Interview

    Compare to other places I interviewed, Choice's interview process is not well planned. At the very last minute they decide you will meet more people, than originally planned. They don't show you the office, which is strange.
