    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hyatt.

    Interview

    Phone interview then Skype interview. Then completely met with silence. Reached out to two different HR personnel who never got back to me. This seems to be common from reading other reviews. I find this very unprofessional.

    Interview

    they asked pretty basic questions and used the STAR criteria. I interviewed with a very friendly HR associate and she was an alum of where I go to school so it was very easy to relate to her. Good experience overall, and not at all intimidating.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hyatt (Washington, DC) in September 2012.

    Interview

    From the moment I was contacted to come in for my first interview, I realized that this was a different level of quality and service than I was used to. My interview was less anxious than anticipated and thoroughly satisfying after hearing that o was shifted to the next step. The interviewer was thorough for good reason. And I especially appreciate the communication put forth on his part in keeping me updated.

    Interview Questions

    • There was an incident o had wanted to keep discreet and the interviewer was courteous enough to make me aware that he was aware of the incident but reassured n
      Me that it would go no further than our conversation. That made me feel at peace.   Answer Question

    Catering Sales Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hyatt (Lost Pines, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    3 step interview process - first interview was a stay-at-home web submission, followed by two face-to-face interviews (one group interview with your prospective teammates, final interview with Hotel GM). Web interview was NOT live -- 5 question interview, you were allowed two attempts per question and had the choice of submitting your preferred answer before submitting all 5 answers to HR.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't remember, BUT I do remember the first round web interview questions being slightly more challenging than the face-to-face interview. The questions were very creative.

      Face-to-face meetings where more standard questions, "Why do you want to work here?/What do you know about us?" "What is your greatest strength/weakness" "How do you manage your day?" etc...   Answer Question

    First interview was easy - had a restaurant supervisor ask the standard questions ( what do you like about serving, what shifts are you available, none too challenging). The department head came out and introduced himself to me briefly. when hired he and one other supervisor called to welcome me to the Hyatt team.

    No negotiation for my position, a standard hourly rate. Did accept my restrictions on the schedule (nights only, not available Wednesday)
