    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at HMSHost (Elizabeth, NJ) in July 2016.

    Interview

    It was the usual questions about experience, school, what was you're greatest achievement, etc, etc. The manager interviewed me and it took around 20 minutes. Wasn't too hard or anything to be nervous about, pretty straightforward.

    Shift Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HMSHost (Atlanta, GA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Literally go in on an "Invite Only" Mass Hiring event then sit down with prospective Managers. Mostly just a run down of the job and what will be expected. I was hired on the spot, everyone was. So the interview was pretty easy. The real process is waiting on the email after you apply online. However, other than that not much of a wait. You go in talk with the manager and get your badging paperwork (airport job).

    Interview Questions

    • "What experience do you have"
      "Tell me about your previous job and what that entailed"   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at HMSHost in May 2016.

    Interview

    It was really easy, and I don't think I even got asked any real questions except for my work availability. I wish I could actually describe anything more, but that was really it. I walked in, said hi to the Assistant Manager and we sat down and started chatting about some of the application process, how I found them, etc. And then they just gave me my background check papers. Nothing to prepare for.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at HMSHost (SeaTac, WA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed with two people in person. Next sent onto three more phone interviews with HR and Operations from corporate. They wanted to hear experience and examples. In hindsight, I believe it was a lengthy process because the department cannot keep people.
