    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Marriott International.

    Interview

    It was easy for me to get an interview because it was a small promotion from a previos job in the hotel i currently work at. First i went to meet with the managers for the new position and then they went straight into the interview which consisted of STR questions. To answer the questions you have to give a specific situation pertaining to the question, give the action you took, and then you have to say what the outcome was.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marriott International.

    Interview

    I only had one interview with two people and they were really nice. I connected with them well. They were tough interviewers though. The interview was about 30 minutes. The interview was tough because with every question they wanted a specific example to your answer. Not just a generalized answer. They wanted to know the process of the example and the outcome with every question.

    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.

    Interview

    Very nice people and executive team.
    Way too lengthy interview process. I was interviewed 6 times, told my final interview with the VP was just a formality, leading me to believe that I had the job. Then no call back to inform me of their decision. To me, this was very unprofessional.
