    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marriott International (Bethesda, MD) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Overall great experience, recruiters contact you for a phone screening then you are potentially recommended for an in person interview with the hiring manager. The process was a bit drawn out, but that was communicated to me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Marriott International (Bethesda, MD).

    Interview

    A very long and drawn out interview process.  I applied to the job and was not contacted until about a month after my application was submitted.  I was first contacted to schedule a phone screen which consisted of answering some behavioral questions with a third party recruiting company.  After that, I was scheduled for an in-person interview which consisted of meeting with two separate senior directors.  The recruiters for Marriott do not do a very good job with communication.  I had to ask multiple times for more details on the interviews.  For example…time, location, etc.  Very basic stuff.  And this was all before I had even met with the company. 

    I found Marriott to have a very odd interview format for this role, as they were trying to get a feel for my technical skills without actually providing any sort of technical assessment (case study, skills assessment, etc.) For example, they asked me to name the most complicated SQL query I had encountered/written, rather than just asking me to write some SQL.  Outside of that, they asked me to list some of the projects I had worked on, and asked follow up questions on those cases.  The role sounded very odd, as it would be between two teams, and would shift managers after about a year in the role.  I didn’t do a great job in the interview, but also decided that the role wasn’t the best fit for me.  After this, the recruiter contacted me after about a week and said that they were still deciding, and she should have an answer for me by the end of the week.  A MONTH LATER the recruiter contacted me and said that they still hadn’t made a decision.  Two weeks after that, she contacted me and told me that they had closed the position.  I would not have been offended if they had decided to reject me for the position, but the fact that they left me hanging for a month and a half was incredibly unprofessional.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Marriott International (Bethesda, MD) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by departmental HR because of previous work I'd done with the division. They recommended that I apply for a new position being offered. After electronically submitting my application I was then contacted by Marriott's recruitment team who set up a screening phone interview where they asked me basic situational STAR questions from past work experiences and why I would be an ideal candidate for this position. I then had an in-person interview with the position's hiring manager. Even though I was all but given the job offer during the interview, there was some lag time with the recruiter getting back to me with an offer. I had to follow up with the hiring manager, who was told that the hold up was because of lagging reference replies.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marriott International (Bethesda, MD) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online through Marriott.com, and then was contacted a few weeks later by a recruiter to fill out additional documentation and to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager.

    The phone interview was primarily hypothetical questions about how I would handle different scenarios I might encounter as an analyst.

    A few months after the phone interview, I received an automated email that I would not be moving forward in the process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Marriott International (Bethesda, MD) in February 2017.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume and application on Marriott's job website, I received a call the same day from the HR Director. She asked a few more questions and then scheduled an interview for the next day. The next day I came in person and had three interviews - one with the front lobby manager and a front desk manager, one with the operations manager, and one with the general manager. Really great experience, the best interviews I've ever had - I felt really taken care of and listened to by people I hadn't even worked with yet, and I felt that all my questions for them were answered thoroughly. I would recommend checking out and trying to get an interview with Marriott - the experience is valuable!

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of "tell me about a time when _____," "tell me about yourself," and "why should we hire you?"
      As long as you submit a detailed resume for them to look at prior, and you have prepared a lot, you should be fine.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marriott International (Bethesda, MD) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online via their career page, was contacted shortly after to schedule a phone interview. Had a phone interview with their in house recruiter that lasted about 30 minutes or so, was mostly all behavioral -STAR based questions and I did very well on the phone interview. I was contacted less than a week later via phone by a recruiting coordinator to schedule a 2 hour in person interview consisting first of a panel interview and then a 1 on 1 interview and received a confirmation with further information only the evening prior to the interview. The in person interview was a great experience, the HQ is beautiful recently renovated and the panel consisted of 3 people all members whom this position would be working closely with. Each member asked 2 behavioral based-STAR format questions and they made it a comfortable process and I was able to ask questions as well. The 1 on 1 interview was a great experience as well and was 5 additional behavioral based-STAR format questions with a couple of other random questions thrown in there. Everyone was very personable and what was a difficult interview was made much more of a comfortable process.
