    HR Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Holland America (Seattle, WA) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Avoid at all cost! They have a very nice office but from the people I met, I would not want to work there. They ridicule you and your prior experience. Both they managers I interviewed with I could tell are on a power trip. No phone interview they will send you an email to come in and FYI there's no parking so your going to have to pay and park somewhere close by.

    Cruise Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Holland America in July 2018.

    Interview

    Received an email that I was a candidate for the position and the first step was a phone interview of about 20 minutes asking my background and work experience. Other questions were asked like "What did I have to offer to the position", etc. I was told that I would know by the end of the week if I was chosen to move on to the next step - I received an email that afternoon that I was. The next step was an online computer assessment. I passed that immediately and then was asked to move to the third step - another online assessment with 4 simulation calls regarding customer service followed by 100 "talent" questions on my personality, how I would respond to certain issues, etc. I felt I did well with the calls - the customers were always happy at the end of the calls. The 100 questions is apparently where I messed up - apparently I was too honest in answering questions pertaining to customer service, etc. I received an email the next morning that I was out of consideration. Even though I had been told that based on my experience and background, the hiring manager was interested in me for the Sept training class. So my advice - answer the entire assessment with answers you think they want to hear, not what you actually think. I did email the interviewer twice, and called once (left a message) , to inquire as to why I was not selected to move to the final step - the video interview with the hiring manager. No response. I truly think it would be beneficial to at least receive a courtesy response so one knows what they did wrong and what can be improved upon should they choose to apply again. Very upsetting ending to what started out as a very positive experience.
