    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.

    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.

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    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.

    Barista - Starbucks Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mantua, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at HMSHost (Mantua, OH) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and they called within a half hour. I scheduled an "interview" for the next day. She works both sides of the turnpike and I went to the one I originally applied for and was told she was at the other, so I was a little late. She was another few minutes herself, so she didn't seem to know or care that I was late. We went into the dining area and she said that the person who had called hadn't actually printed my application, so I had to tell her everything again. There wasn't a single experience/situational question other than if I had ever worked third shift. I hadn't applied planning on doing third shift anyway, but she told me they make $1 more plus work alone so they keep all the tips instead of splitting with others on a shift. She told me about their dress code and attendance point system and that if I got 3 points in my first 90 days I'd be fired and that was a write-up at any point after that then told me who to tell and how far in advance for requests off. She said as soon as my background check came back I'd be good to start. She said my first week will be training on first or second shift and about halfway through she'll meet with me to make sure I still want to do Starbucks (the busiest/hardest place in the plaza) and third shift, but she could move me to one of the other two restaurants or the gift shop for any shift if I don't catch on or decide not to do overnight. I left my wallet in the car, so I filled out the form for the background check outside (needed my license #). I came in and handed it to the girl working and ordered as well, debit card in hand, but she just gave it to me free.
