    Revenue Management Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Costa Crociere (Miami, FL) in March 2007.

    Interview

    Very standard process. Short phone interview with HR rep, then a 1 on 1 interview with hiring manager. I got the sense that the interview was a mere formality as the majority of the interview involved explaining what I could expect rather than the company's expectations. It seemed more like a presentation than an interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Now that I've described how our company operates here in the States, how does that compare with your current employer which is also based in Italy?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotioated salary upward slightly since I was employed at the time.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I applied on LinkedIn, got called back for a first screening via phone. Then I was asked to conduct some mathematical tests on an online platform. After that I did a Skype interview with a manager of the revenue management department, that involved commenting an exercise on excel. The last step was via phone again with a HR representative and involved testing my commercial acumen, motivation and other questions based on my past experiences.
