    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Amherst, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Hilton (Amherst, MA).

    Interview

    First interview was an online interview prompt. Once I got the email, I had a couple days to complete it. The interview was set up so I would be given a question, then after 30 seconds, it would begin recording me answering the question. Once I finished answering, I did not have an option to review it or re-answer the question (other online interview prompts I've done gave you three opportunities to record your answer).

    I understand the need for the online process with so many applicants, however, there was no personal contact from any recruiter. It did not feel like they were actually interested in who I was as a person, which is not what you would expect from a company in the hospitality industry.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I was asked to complete a personality test that took approx 45 mins to complete. I was then invited to complete a video interview through their hiring system. Its uncomfortable talking into the camera and you are only given 30 seconds to read the question and think of your answer. You only have one chance at an answer and it's hard to see how long you have to answer the question. I don't think this is a particularly great way to get people to share their work experience as its a very unnatural situation and doesn't allow you to think too much on the answers you want to give - this would be different if you were having a conversation with a real person.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hilton.

    Interview

    It was just a behavioral interview to see if I was a good fit for the program or not. The interviewer asked basic questions like walk me through your resume, leadership examples, etc. Nothing too crazy.

    Assistant Housekeeping Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hilton (Seattle, WA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Process took 2 weeks, from initial contact from HR to official offer. I had 2 phone interviews. First interview with HR and department manager, second interview with director of rooms. Asked behavioral and background questions, to confirm experience. Second interview was more of a personality matching interview, it felt more like determining if we would make a good management team, how well we would work together.
