    Reservation Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hilton.

    Interview

    They insist that you make a video to answer the questions. They want you to film yourself as you answer questions you read off the screen.
    I sent an email inquiry asking if I could just do an audio recording for them. They responded with a definitive "NO" that they need to "see you".
    Why do they need to see you? The clients will not see you. So what could be the point?
    Is it because they want to see the color of your skin? To see how much you weigh? How old you are?
    If not, what?

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing actually related to the job you will be performing. The questions relate to other jobs you've had such is "what is your greatest achievement during your life?"   Answer Question

    National Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hilton (Arlington, VA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It is a very tortured process. I applied on line, received a screening phone interview and then this bizarre online interview. It was dreadful, and offered no opportunity for interaction, building rapport or gaining consensus. All things that critical to the Sales process.

    I apparently did not photograph well, as I never heard another word from Hilton. My take is that it is basically a way of screening out folks that did not have the right look. It could have be used to screen for race age, gender or any number of other factors. There was no way of telling and no feed back provided. I found it very creepy.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hilton (Washington, DC) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Abominably awkward.
    Took interview on live web cam. Very uncomfortable. No interaction or ability to ask questions. No personal attachment to the process or company. Uncertain what happens to my taped interview afterwards. Probably a scheme for the FBI to get facial recognition profiles. Won't do this again. What ever happened to the people and service industry! This is no way to reach and retain qualified candidates.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hilton in July 2015.

    Interview

    Responded to an indeed ad with resume and cover letter. Position was a perfect fit, exactly what I have been doing for 15 years. 2 weeks later invitation for a 40 minute recorded video interview. No way to prepare, they only answer technical questions. 3 minutes countdown from reading the question to answering it. Max 3 minutes for the answer, which- if you read the questions is NOT enough!

    Interview

    I applied online then was invited to have a self webcam interview. You get to have a practice session using the webcam, however, I still felt awkward and wished it was one-on-one instead.

    Interview Questions

    • As for me, I felt very awkward and uncomfortable answering questions to the computer screen with nobody on the other side and no response. The questions were all the job entailed questions focused on sales which were pretty expected.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hilton in July 2014.

    Interview

    Had to fill out an online application and do a personality test along with a stimulation of working in a call center. It was really easy but time consuming because you have to listen to the whole "training" first. Shortly after that was submitted I got an email to do a video interview on hirevue. It said the process would take 70 minutes but only took around 10. Only a few questions were video related and they give you 3 minutes to answer. The rest were all "essay" questions mostly requiring yes or no responses. A week or so later I received a call to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was a few days later and very challenging. The whole process took an hour long. The questions were ones I really had to think about to come up with answers. You then have to do a role play over the phone with the interviewer. They give you the information before hand so make sure you prepare! You must go step by step through a reservation process and must ask discovery questions to determine the best room to sell. I ended up not selling the room and I was confident I bombed the interview but got a call 2 days later with a job offer!

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hilton (Vilamoura (Portugal)) in March 2010.

    Interview

    There's no process... they called me several times changing interview. I was not received at hotel in a proper way and had to wait for 1 and a half hour (yes, 90 minutes).
    When the interview started, no explanation or excuse were given to me....

    Interview Questions

    • I was received by the HR Manager of Hilton in the Algarve and by the future GM of Conrad. They didn't know what to expect from me, what will be the role, etc. etc., and they asked for my opinion about the job.
      Absolutely unbelievable!
