    A week later, I got a call and they wanted me to come in for some reason. I got hired then, and had to do a drug test along with fill out all the legal papers.

    Guest Services Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.

    Interview

    Was applying with the Williamsburg Lodge. Had an interview with both the Front Office Manager and the Restaurant Manager. It was very cut in dry, they both had the same list of questions to ask me and they just hopped around to asking them. Wasn't too long or harsh, they asked me a lot of behavioral questions as well as questions about my future aspirations. Almost feel as though they were trying to see if I was just trying to add the position to my resume or if I planned on being with the company for the long run.
