    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marriott International in June 2017.

    Interview

    First of all you have to have to make an account at the Marriot Website and afterwards you can apply to the position. I applied for the position Sales Coordinator and was contacted in about a week time. The interview was a week later with the HR manager. Afterwards I was invited for a second interview with the HR manager and marketing manager. The time between the interviews were about three weeks.

    It took extremely long before I got the results of my interview (about a month later). The total process took about 2,5 months. I did not get hired, I asked for feedback, however Marriot never responded and I still don't know why I did not get the position.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you do when a guests has unrealistic expectations about the service we can provide?
      What do you do when you have to goal of making a $1000 sale, but the budget of the guest is $100?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Marriott International in May 2012.

    Interview

    My first interview consisted of meeting with two of the managers. It was about an hour long and they asked several different questions. They called me back for a second interview a week later. I had to give a tour of the hotel, and sell a meeting room to them. I then met with the other two managers and interviewed with all of them. They all were very nice and friendly, and made me feel comfortable during the entire interview process. They let me know what to expect for my second interview so I could prepare beforehand which was very important.

    • Describe a situation where you had a problem and had to think outside of the box to fix it?   Answer Question
    • Give me an example of a time you had to deal with a difficult guest and how you handled the situation?   Answer Question
    • Use one adjective to describe yourself...   Answer Question
    • What did you like best about your last job? And what did you like least about your last job?   Answer Question

    They came with a great first offer and said there is room to move up from there. I would only suggest negotiating if you have extensive experience in the job for which you've applied and it wasn't reflected in the original offer.
