    Event Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Churchill Downs (Louisville, KY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    First interview was a phone interview with two of the current event managers. They asked pretty basic interview questions and a couple situational questions.

    The second interview I was asked to come into the office. I sat with the whole event management team and then one on one with the Hospitality Director. There were less questions during this interview than the first and more discussing the position in greater detail. I was told that they would let me know their decision either way in the upcoming week. I never heard from them again even after following up with an email and call. I was completely surprised by how unprofessional the whole experience was. I also found it rather odd that the Director told me that the only way to grow in this company was if someone left so professional growth should not be a reason for accepting a job there.

    I should also mention that this position only makes $40,000.00 a year.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    process took a week. Submit an application online, got called in 2-3 days, had phone-interview, and in-person interview with all full-time staff within a department.

    Interview was very straightforward and laid back. Just found that they have already decided to hire me when they had me for an in-person interview. That was just to make sure if a person will fit into the culture.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Churchill Downs (Westwego, LA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    You go before a very biased manager who asks the same as any other would. You are judged by appearance and how fast paced you work. You sit out in the VP Poker area with a lot of smokers.
