    Dual Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was very informal. It was a simple conversation! I was even offered the job on the spot. Once I started talking with other employees though, my interview process was very different than the norm.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Island Hospitality.

    Interview

    It was a joke! Had to jump through all these hoops despite experience of over 7 years! They act like they are some elite huge company which they can't come close to Hilton or Marriott managed hotels! The interview process was also ridiculous how is some 30 year old guy playing a big shot going to determine how good someone is when he its clueless about the overall market!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Island Hospitality (Orlando, FL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview was just a conversation and the Gm said during this process that this job makes her want to run in the middle of the street and get hit by a car. Second interview was with regional and was very easy and the typical hospitality questions.

    General Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Island Hospitality (Pittsburgh, PA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Waited about two weeks after applying to receive phone call to take personality test and express interest in interview. Completed test immediately and had scheduled phone interview time with Regional Manager. AT the time of interview, after she did not pick up the call, I received an email apologizing and saying a meeting popped up and we would have to reschedule. After attempting to email two times to reschedule, with zero response, I finally called and asked if there was still interest. She said there was and we, at that point, rescheduled. Interview was on the phone, and lasted about 90 minutes - was very normal.

    I was then scheduled to meeting with the Regional VP, who flew in for the interview. This interview lasted only maybe 20 minutes and I did not get a great sense one way or the other how it went, being that it was so short.

    After a week or so, I emailed the initial manager politely asking if the position had been filled. Waited another week, emailed the VP politely asking for an update. Another week, emailed them BOTH with the same question. I never received a response.

    While I am ok getting beaten out for a job, and I am understanding that sometimes a person isn't a great fit for the position, I can not understand how executives can get to this level without enough decency to let someone know what's happening with the position when they have asked directly three different times over the course of 6 weeks. I feel like i may have dodged a bullet with this one...

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Island Hospitality (Bellevue, WA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Awkward. One interviewer was really good and seemed like a great person. The other person sat there awkwardly without even introducing themselves or saying anything for the duration of it the interview. Didn't even introduce herself. Aside from her. Straightforward and simple. Only lasted maybe 20-30 minutes, basically for them to gauge your personality and make sure you knew how to use a computer and could talk to people.
