    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marriott International (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online. The hotel specifically I applied at was very short and hired about 4-5 new people in guest services. Interview was pretty lax, talked to 3 managers and was hired on the spot. did drug test and Background check and went in for training the next week. Pretty easy interview and HR Process. Manager was unorganized though.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Marriott International (Fort Lauderdale, FL).

    Interview

    3 interviews over the course of two days. You meet with someone from HR, then your manager, then the director of your department. You then take a drug test and if you make it through all of that, you have to sit through an insanely boring week of orientation. They do feed you though, that's the only good part.

    Interview

    The interview process was not overly difficult. It was pleasant and the interviewer made sure you felt comfortable. There were no surprise questions and it was not a stress interview. They asked Marriott HR required behavioral questions that followed the STAR format. The dress code is business casual, so you might be the only one wearing a suit.

    STAR method, they want very detailed, specific answers in about 15 minutes. They ask you team based questions, yet want you to be specific about what you did that made you stand out.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Marriott International in October 2016.

    Interview

    Relatively quick and easy. Started with an on-campus interview and was immediately sent an assessment to fill out. It was 57 question habitual assessment that was easy because you're just letting them know what your management style would be (you can't really have a wrong answer). Will hear back by the beginning of November if I've made it to a final interview.

    Anonymous Employee in Toledo, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marriott International (Toledo, OH) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online to the company and I received a call for an interview within a week. They asked me some questions over the phone pertaining to the hours I was available. I was asked to come in the next day for a face to face interview with the Assistant Manager which was pretty basic. I was then asked to come in the next day for a second interview with the General Manager for a drug test and to sign a release for my driving record. They have a van that is used to pick up guests from the airport so the position requires that you have a valid license and clean driving history.

    Customer Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Marriott International (San Antonio, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview with in person interview the next day. Very in depth interview "STAR" format. First they go over job description, work history, the ask about 15 questions where they want very detailed responses. It seems like a great company to work for they just don't offer very high pay.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation where you had conflict and how you resolved the problem?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I would have probably accepted- great work environment, great company but low pay. $10.75/hr doesn't justify a daycare expense for my family.
