Administrative Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Tucson, AZ

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Marriott (Tucson, AZ).

Interview

I applied internally and was asked to interview a few days later. They follow the STAR method of interviewing. My future boss asked for a specific situation and wanting to know how I resolved it. I had worked at the resort for a few years by now so I used that experience in my interview. Giving examples of helping customers/clients is a plus.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Marriott.

    Interview

    You will have to apply online, then the waiting game starts. If your resume is picked, you will get a phone call from the recruiter who will set you up with a phone interview with the hiring manager. Then they'll ask you to come in to meet with different people to interview with. They have a list of questions to ask such as "how you managed to resolve a last minute task" or "how to deal with co-workers who are not personable". A lot of "Can you think about a time when...."

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Marriott.

    Interview

    Applied online through Marriott's website, received a phone call from department head. Preliminary discussion over phone about job role/expectations, my basic background, etc. Set up an in-person interview, many standard questions (Tell me about yourself, Describe a situation when you...) and a great overall interaction with the department head and hiring assistant. I interviewed on a Wednesday & the position was to be filled on that Friday. Called the interviewer for follow-up on Friday (had emailed on Thursday morning) and was not selected for position, but my resume was passed along to the GM for future consideration

    The hiring and interview process happened quickly. The professionalism should be adopted by other companies. Whether you are hired for the job or not, the recruiters do follow ups, to avoid and applicant waiting by the phone

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marriott (Bethesda, MD) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Marriott's environment was very friendly. The people there understood the culture that Marriott works so diligently at portraying. Interviewing was relatively at ease, and the computer testing was run-of-the-mill. Follow through, regarding contact about the next steps, was lacking, as I called for weeks on end, but had no response. Finally, after about three (3) weeks of persistence, they told me that the position had actually been cancelled.
