    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hilton (McLean, VA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It started with a video interview through HireVue (this is you recording yourself answering questions in a video). It can be intimidating as you have only 30 seconds to prepare your answer after you see the question. There were 5 questions total. Then, I had a phone interview.

    Guest Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online. One day later I got an email to take a virtual interview which I did the next day. They said that they would be in touch within a few days on their email. I heard back about two weeks after the interview, possibly slightly longer with a big fat rejection. During the interview there was a section of video taped interview questions you answered, next some information about the position, and lastly some technical questions about a computer, etc. it took about 35-40 minutes for me to finish the interview on hireVue.

    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hilton (McLean, VA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Started off with a recorded virtual interview, which was new to me. It was slightly nerve-wracking at first, but became more comfortable as the questions progressed. There was a long period between my virtual interview and a call from a recruiter to actually conduct a phone screen--not sure if they were busy hiring other positions, there was a delay on this position, or what, but it was in the neighborhood of 6 weeks from the virtual to the phone screen. After that, things moved VERY quickly. I did a phone interview with the hiring manager, then my direct manager, and was provided a case study to prepare and present a week later. The case study is no joke, so leave yourself plenty of time to dig in and thoroughly prepare. I presented the case study on a Friday morning and received an offer on Monday afternoon.
