    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (Lafayette, IN) in August 2014.

    Interview

    They called to set up an interview with me the day after I applied in person. The manager and front desk supervisor interviewed me together. They took turns asking questions. It was in a comfortable sitting area in the lobby. I was pretty well prepared for the interview and I wore a business professional outfit (dress pants and suit jacket). The interview only lasted about 10 min or so and was pretty easy.

    There was little room to negotiate - there was room to gain an extra dollar per hour with experience and the right personality which would fit the present personnel.
