    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Destination Hotels (Richmond, VA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The process was light hearted, and very easy. One of the smoothest interviews Ive taken. Though I only went through one interview before being offered a position, it normally takes 2.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Del Mar, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Destination Hotels (Del Mar, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and was contacted by the hiring manager about two weeks later. I had a short phone interview with the hiring manager to confirm my qualifications and then was invited in for an interview with the heads of the department. It was a very short interview and I was told that they would contact me within a day or two to let me know whether or not I was selected for the position, but they never called me back or replied to the emails and message I sent to them. Perhaps it's just me, but I feel that if you met with someone for a face-to-face interview, the least you can do is give them the courtesy of a "thanks, but no thanks" phone call to let them know what is happening. It's extremely unprofessional and frustrating to simply ignore prospective employees.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Destination Hotels.

    Interview

    Met HR Manager, GM and Regional Director. Also had a 30 minute call with Corporate HR recruiter. I was a bit surprised that HR manager and corporate HR recruiter apparently hadn't talked in advance of my interview. It took a good deal of time before regional manager followed up with HR manager I was told. Apparently he had a large number of open positions.

    Negotiation

    Not difficult. I knew what the offer would be from HR Manager at the hotel.
