    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hyatt.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call for an interview within a few days of submitting it. After notifying the front desk I was there, the manager had me wait in the lobby for 10-15 minutes (she was late). She then led me to a conference room for the interview. The process itself was extremely long and lasted about 45 minutes to an hour, much longer than I anticipated for the desired position. The interviewer was kind, but relentless with her questions.

    In-Room Dining Coordinator/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hyatt (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by the Food and Beverage manager about two weeks later. He asked basic questions over the phone--why Hyatt, what my experience was--and then invited me to an in-person interview later that week. I went, talked to him, and he asked if I could stay for a second interview with the Operations Director and someone from HR. I said yes and met with them, who gave me more info about the position/hotel. I was then contacted by a recruiter the next day offering me the position. I ended up declining the offer because after the very informative conversations, I realized it wasn't what I wanted to do. My decision to decline had nothing to do with the quality of the brand nor the people I met with, whom were fantastic.

    Front Desk Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jersey City, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Hyatt (Jersey City, NJ).

    Interview

    I once interviewed with a Hyatt Regency and nearly got the job but got turned down solely on my availability at the time. The HR coordinator explicitly called me and left a voicemail to reach out to her for future opportunities and she's interested in me but stopped working at Hyatt soon later and I saw all my future job applications to the hotel automatically shut down. No call backs when I was far beyond required skills. I think their job app. program automatically blocked me based off one turn-down from a job. Eventually I went to a Hyatt job fair for a new hotel they opened in my hometown and got a job offer a few weeks after.
