    Sales Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Four Seasons (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    There was a brief phone screening then I was invited for an interview. The interview was a 2 part interview with HR first and then a Director. I only met with HR though because my salary expectations were different than what they were offering. Lesson learned. Always inquire about salary on the phone screen.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Four Seasons (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewing at Four Seasons was the worst experience I've ever had. I was approached by a third party recruiter and was asked to meet with the hiring manager the next day. I was asked to return the following week for an Excel test and two more interviews. After which I did not hear from Four Seasons until April, 3 months later. When I finally heard back I was asked to come in for a third day of interviews with two more managers. A month later I was told by the recruiter that Four Seasons was preparing an offer for me. That was the last I heard and was later told by a different recruiter that the role had been filled.

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Four Seasons (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online through their corporate website. About a month later get a call back from human resources to see if I was still interested in the position. Went into HR department at the hotel and had a series of face to face interviews, four in total; all positions in the company have four interviews. They want to see if you are the right fit and base it on attitude. Took about month and half from the time I applied

    Assistant Server Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Four Seasons (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There were totally 4 interviews but I only made it to the third rounds. The Director of the F & B didn't think I have enough work experience with a 200 seats busy restaurant and told me directly when I asked him what did he think about me. However, I do appreciate he told me so face-to-face, it was hard to accept but I know it was the right thing to do.

    People there were really friendly. I still feel like to work with them someday in the future when I get enough work experience.

    Food Service Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Four Seasons (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Mostly asking 'fake scenario' questions - pretty generic. Felt HR didn't really know what qualifications were needed for the position I was applying for. Bit abrasive and awkward. Felt that interviewer was looking me "up and down" which was inappropriate and unnecessary. Wasn't clear at all whether or not I'd be called back for the last session of interviews, just kind of left me hanging wondering if I should go look for something else or not... which I didn't think was professional.
