    Reservation Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Corbin, KY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hilton (Corbin, KY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Long process. Application & personality tests took at least a few hours. Then I had to call in and read a script on a message machine. Then I had the "live" (not so live) interview. Interviewing with a robot? Not ready for that I guess. THEY TEXTED ME EVERY FEW HOURS FOR THREE DAYS TO DO THE VIDEO INTERVIEW! I was at the top of a mountain with no dress clothes. The email said I had until Monday night but the texts just kept coming like they REALLY WANTED ME--NOT!!!. Got all dressed up, had to mess around with their software for an hour at least I guess because I have a brand new PC it wasn't working correctly. Had to call HireVue tech support. I was so frustrated after the software/Skype wasn't working that I should have just waited until the next morning but THE CONSTANT TEXTS caused me so much stress I worried if I waited any longer that they might not think I'm reliable. My fault on the "interview" I guess! Horrible. Watching myself talk in a mirror on the screen knowing someone else is going to see it and I thought I looked AWFUL--and I had SUCH a hard time getting the lighting to work with the software. The questions were so simple it was laughable and I did grin at some of them and had a bit of a sense of humor--that really only works in REAL FACE TO FACE INTERVIEWS when having a conversation with a REAL PERSON. It was over 2 weeks before I got my "thanks but no thanks" email. And that only came AFTER I tried to find out why they were STILL. TEXTING. ME. about the video interview!!!! I spent again over an hour getting transferred here and there and all over the world and finally (I think???) got the voice mail of someone in HR and I left a message. I guess they are not looking for strong, personable people with divergent thinking--act like you are reading a script and bored--you might get the job. (Also--I have extensive travel experience).

    Assistant Director of Property Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hilton (Chicago, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was automated online and difficult to complete. When I first attempted to complete the interview it was unavailable and then when I finally was able to begin the process, the site kept bouncing me off or cutting out in the middle of my responses with no opportunity to complete them. Overall it was a very disheartening experience.

    Done through HireVue. First there's a pre-recorded interview you do then a live one. They give you practice questions but once you enter the interview you can not re-record your answers. They ask about 3 questions that you respond to via video and then give you some information about the job, equipment l, schedule etc. About 2 weeks after applying is when I received an email to interview. 3 weeks or so after that interview is when I got an invite for a live one. During that one she asked about my background and went more in detail about the job, training and such.

Overall, it was a great experience and a wonderful company to work for. Pros are as follows... -Decent wages -Excellent PTO system -With it being hospitality, expect to work a lot of weekends and major holidays. But in my experience, we got to choose which holidays were most important for us to have off, and we typically got the ones we wanted. -Fun, friendly work environment. I met several of my closest friends from Hilton. -Company is constantly growing and evolving, so there's always openings and opportunities for growth” – Full Review
