    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.

    Interview

    Completed a phone screen. Was told there would be next steps and followup. Never heard back.

    Interviewed by a would-be peer instead of a recruiter or supervisor. Experience felt unprofessional.

    Front Desk Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hyatt (Milwaukee, WI) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Hyatt Regency in Milwaukee. The interview was very laid back and the questions were not all that difficult. If you prepare, you should be good. The interview was done in stages. I first met with the office manager. She passed me on to someone else who then passed me off to HR who then decided that I should meet the general manager. I did a lot of sitting and waiting and all together I was there for about two hours. I had thought that the interview was going great. The general manager told me that if you get to him, the decision is basically almost made. I was told that they pride themselves on making decisions fast and I would hear regardless. This was 8 days ago. I never heard anything since.
    I was very excited about the job but was unfortunately planning on declining due to the nonnegotiable hourly pay ($10.25/hr). But I'm still disappointed that they did not follow through and just left me hanging.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hyatt.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email for a follow-up assessment. Once that was completed, I received a phone call to schedule an interview not much soon after. I spoke with an extremely nice man who explained the job and asked me some clarifying questions as he went along such as "does this sound like something you'd be interested in doing" etc, After that he went over my resume with me, asked questions about my work experience, and asked why I wanted to work for Hyatt. We spent the next 15 minutes answering questions that I had. The whole interview in total lasted a little under 30 minutes. Right after, I got an email about paperwork (which I believe he sent too early but was my biggest clue I had gotten the job). About 2.5 weeks later I got a phone call saying they pushed back the training date and offered me the position.

    My advice: do your research on the company! This way you are prepared with questions for the interviewer. Also, pay attention when they are speaking!! My interviewer mentioned key points that I picked up on and was able to ask questions about later. I'm now in training and love every minute of it :D

    • I can't believe that still, in 2017, interviewers ask the same stupid question. How do yo see yourself in 5 year.? Well, older. I'm 52. Please!. Don't make stupid question that only lead to two answers. One is bad and the other one worst.
