    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.

    Director of Destination Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hilton in September 2017.

    Interview

    I received a call from a Sr Manager of Corporate Recruiting at 7am, but I missed the call. She asked for me to call her back and/or to email her times when I'd be available to chat about the role. After three follow ups from my end with no response, I moved on. Not very professional - 1. to call someone at 7am; 2. to ask someone for time to chat but then never acknowledging the receipt of emails or calls; and 3. ghosting a candidate. If not interested, don't ask for a call back (or don't call).

    Interview Questions

    • Can you please provide a good time to discuss the role?   Answer Question
