    Regional Director of Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Marriott International (Arlington, VA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    A highly scripted process was in place when interviewed for a Sales position. The overall scenario and interaction felt very sterile - quite unlike the natural rapport building that happens in sales interactions - and in most Marriott interactions, inside and outside HQ. The process appeared to feel uncomfortable for the panel of interviewers as well. I wonder if they learn what they really need to know about a candidate to judge their capabilities for a job?

    Reasons for Declining

    Offer was for a lower level position at 50% of my current salary. It felt insulting.

    Director of Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rogers, AR
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Marriott International (Rogers, AR) in September 2011.

    Interview

    My initial contact was with the AGM. I was responding to a networking lead. I was given the business card for the sales manager. I made contact and received a phone interview the same day. I scheduled a personal interview the following day. This interview lasted a little over an hour. It involved both the GM and Sales Manager. They did most of the talking and outlined the expectations of the position and the work culture. I believe that this company has very high expectations for the DOS position, and that the work culture is very much like a family.

    Lengthy with multiple interviews, very detailed and well answered questions, go in with a list and be honest with your answers, ambitious people are appreciated but common sense will sin the job.
