    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.

    The interview was easy. They ask about your experience and if you can pass a background check. They also asked about your ability to stand for hours. When they hire you, you have to pass a background check and a drug test.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at HMSHost (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very straight forward. I applied online and got a call 2 days later for an interview two days after that. I met the HR manager outside of security and we sat and talked for about 15 minutes. I appreciated that she acknowledged that most of the questions were not applicable because they were bout customer service, which I would not be doing. I had worked for this company in this position before, so I was very confident going in, and was hired on the spot after she explained the company and union benefits.

    I applied online. I interviewed at HMSHost (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    When you go for you're interview, you will get hired more than likely. There will be a lot more people there than you expect, and the majority of Managers just hire everyone that qualifies. Although they will talk to you and make sure you are friendly. I really don't recall the interview questions , as it has been 6 years

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at HMSHost (Little Rock, AR) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Got a call after about a month, he screened me on the phone, told me about the restaurant and asked me about my life. He then invited me to an on-site interview. It was short and standard. He didn't read off of a sheet and wasn't monotone or boring. It was a real, engaging conversation. I felt like he cared about what I was saying, and didn't feel the need to lie. I was very comfortable. John gave the best interview I've ever participated in because he was to the point, and aimed to get to know me as a person. You know if you get a good vibe off someone within 5 minutes, and I hate the droning interviews most companies conduct.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HMSHost (Bethesda, MD).

    Interview

    Initial interview with one of the managers and director, at same time; then I got invited back for a second interview with the VP/Corporate Controller. The interview styles on both occasions were conversational. Though I didn't land the job, they all seemed to be a supportive group of leaders looking for highly technical finance/accounting professional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at HMSHost.

    Interview

    Overall it was fairly casual, but a little unprofessional. The interviewer was about an hour and a half late for 10+ interviews. We were in a public space. Some interviews lasted about 10 minutes mine lasted about 45 minutes and was mostly useless banter. Just about everyone got the job due to high turnover.

    The interviewing manager seemed busy and distracted. The interview was misleading. I was told wages would be $2 an hour higher than they were, but was later told that wages were including tips.
