    Assistant Manager II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HMSHost (Denver, CO) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Interview process is fairly easy. If you have worked in the industry for a few years in a managerial capacity and are able to give appropriate corporate friendly answers during an interview, this is not a difficult job to obtain.

    Interview Questions

    • There is a question about what would you do when 5 different things happen on a crazy day. The idea is that you are able to correctly prioritize each item in their order of importance. Listen to all of the items before you start speaking and it is ok to ask for them to be repeated.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is a salary window for every position. This window is generally about 6-8K so always ask for a couple extra thousand more than is offered. Nobody gets offended and you will get an honest yea or no.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at HMSHost.

    Interview

    Had 2 phone interviews. Then a 1 on 1 with HR. 2nd interview with HR and director of operations. Was a great experience. Very professional. I was unprepared for one of there questions. I totally blanked.

    The director was very patient with me and my blank look. He put me at ease, and rephrased the question. I eventually came around and said the answer. At this point i felt i blew the interview and, my chances of getting the job.

    The interview concluded, and was told I would hear from HR in a few days. To my amazement, i get the call a day earlier then i was expecting. With a job offer!

    Honestly a good company.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Elverson, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HMSHost (Elverson, PA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    It's a simple process. You answer many of the same questions you answered on the online form. Managers ARE friendly; after all, they deal with people and employees all day. If you seem reasonable intelligent and are willing to do the work, they'll give you a chance. Your first time there will be a bit confusing because the employees and customers don't share a parking lot.
