    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hilton.

    Interview

    I applied for the work at Home position in November 2017 . I was invited to take the HireVue interview and a few weeks later I received a text and a telephone interview was set up . Two days before my telephone interview I received another text from Ally saying that she needed to reschedule my telephone interview to one day that week . I haven’t heard anything else from them and its been almost two weeks . It upsets me because I stay at their hotels very often and I didn’t expect their hiring process to be so TERRIBLE .

    Revenue Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hilton (San Diego, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email from the recruiter a few days later to set up a phone interview as well as a link to complete a digital interview via HireVue. I was asked several questions to either record a video response or type my answers. In HireVue, one of the written questions brought up a pay rate of $14 an hour. This rate is extremely low for the industry (should be closer to $25). Then, during my interview, the first thing the recruiter brings up is the pay and she knows its low and she just wants to know now if it's not going to work for me. I told her it is too low and asked if there was flexibility. She said no and that was the end of the interview.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    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.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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.
