    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts (San Jose, CA) in February 2020.

    The interview process was horrible, he couldn’t find anywhere to perform the interview so we just walked around the hotel while he asked me questions. It was a very informal interview.

    Concierge Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Online application, pretty standard to other hotel brands. Basic questions and work history needed to filled out online. Phone screening was very easy going and pleasant. HR was very nice over the phone and helpful when answering questions. They asked standard questions regarding experience with customer/guest interactions. Later on, 3 same day in person interviews. All 3 were straight forward and conversation based aside from 1 that was a bit of role playing. You should have some good recommendations and some creative ideas for activities and dining before the interview.

    Business Center Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts (Seattle, WA) in February 2019.

    Interview

    I went to their JOB FAIR DINNER and it was more like a walk-in interview. There was no dinner or nothing close to JOB FAIR DINNER as they described. I had to take the assessment test before the job fair. Interview questions were fairly easy. I literally have interview and left. I felt like they had to be more clear about what they do. If that's the recruitment style they go for, I don't like that.

    Payroll Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts.

    Interview

    There was a pre-screen phone interview from HR and she scheduled an in-person interview with me at the end of the pre-screen. The in-person interview was 3 separate interviews - one with HR, one with the assistant manager, and one with director of finance. They ask the same questions in each of the 3 interviews and it seemed to me that the interview would have been better if it was one panel interview, instead of 3 separate interviews. A week after the in-person interviews, HR contacted me again to schedule another interview with their corporate director of labor management. At that point, I already received another job offer and declined the interview.
