    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Host Hotels & Resorts in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very thorough. First round was with HR and hiring manager on the phone. After that, was a full day of interviews at the office, in addition to a 1 hour excel test. There was also a take-home 2-part cases analysis. Everyone at the company is friendly but very sharp.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Host Hotels & Resorts (Bethesda, MD) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with them, it went well. They have a beautiful facility. I went in for an interview and it was very quick, the interview lasted less than 3 minutes. I assumed they had no interest in hiring me at all once I met the hiring manager. They promptly made me take an online finance exam which consisted of questions that I hadnt touched since college.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Host Hotels & Resorts (Bethesda, MD) in August 2012.

    Interview

    From first contact with the company via a recruitment posting to introductions, telephone interviews and travel to the corporate headquarters this process was highly professional and extremely impressive. The Human Resources staff members and senior management were knowledgable and informative about the well established company and thoroughly helpful as well as extremely organized. They managed the logistics of setting up multiple interviews and travel with ease and constant communication. The experience at the corporate headquarters from sense of arrival to the quality of peer level and senior management interviews and interactions was challenging, informative and stimulating. The exchange of ideas and discipline specific knowledge provided a positive impression of the structure and culture of this company. My experience from start to finish was top notch. Exceeded my expectations.
