    Average Interview

    Application

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hilton (Houston, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I had a stage where i baked a few food items and show cased my plating skills. The pastry team was considerate but a little stand offish. Expected I guess as they did not know me. The dessert took four hours from start to finish. Did not seem to bother the Pastry chef in charge. (plate had a lot of applications). Over all the interview went well. Talked to the Executive Chef and was asked to come on board pending HR.

    Interview Questions

    • How long have you been baking? Where have you worked and in what capacity? Are you flexible to schedule changes? Can you work weekends and holidays? Can you multi-task?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They do not negotiate. They ask if the wage is ok.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hilton (Boca Raton, FL) in October 2017.

    All the people applying for non managements culinary positions have to answer a very complete test with about 50 questions. After that, the Chef proceeds with his interview which is even more difficult. They definitely know what are looking for.

    Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hilton (McLean, VA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Had an interview with the hiring manager and then with another manager that works in the same department. Mostly behavioral questions, wanting to know about why I applied for the position and what I was looking for. Very few technical questions. Overall the experience was great. Hopefully I hear something positive as its a great company, learning opportunity and room for growth... Not to mention they are prepping for an IPO.

    Laundry Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hilton (Orlando, FL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Received a call from HR and was scheduled an appointment to meet with the hiring manager. Upon arrival to appointment, hiring manager was not available and I was interviewed by two lower level managers. They asked questions from a pre-printed form and took the time to write down the responses. Interestingly, I discovered that one of the interviewers was actually the subordinate of the position I was interviewing for. Is it common for a supervisor to interview their potential boss? Very unprofessional environment when compared to other operations in the area.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hilton (Dallas, TX) in September 2010.

    Interview

    I went in for the interview and met with two people from the Event Planning/Catering department. They asked straight forward questions about what my responsibilities were at my old job. I thought the interview went quite well. After and hour and a half of talking and hearing about the job responsibilities I went and talked with the HR manager. He asked a few questions. What I believe the job responsibilities would entail? Would I be free to work on the weekends when necessary? What would I do to calm an upset bride? I thought the interview went very well, but I never received a call.
