    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Del Mar, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Interstate Hotels & Resorts (Del Mar, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    After submitting an application, I received an email to schedule an interview with the director of finance. After, I was interviewed by the Accounting Manager and the General Manager of the hotel. Everyone was accommodating and friendly. the director of finance was the one who contacted me directly regarding interviews. I did not go through HR. I made it to the last round of interviews but didn't get it as I was up against an internal applicant who had been working there for eight years. What I did not like was that I got a generic rejection email from their automated email. I did email the director a thank you rejection email asking for feedback and I received a response and an explanation.
