    Catering Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Montage Hotels & Resorts (Beverly Hills, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online and received a first phone screening 3 days later from the hiring manager. Brief conversation, asked why I applied, what my goals were, etc. His assistant called me back that same day to schedule an in person interview with HR. I met with HR for about 30 mins, asking standard questions such as 5 words that describe me, what do I know about the company, etc. Then they had me wait for a bit as the hiring manager was going to interview me next. I met with him for another 30 minutes or so and he gave me a better understanding of what the role was. Then I met with the department head of Catering, this time it was more of a conversation rather than an interview which was nice. After that, he told me the next step would be a panel interview. Come prepared to panel as you will interview with executives and the GM (about 5 people all at once). Overall, great interview experience as they are selective with who they choose but if you haven't gone through a similar process then it may seem overwhelming! Do your homework!

    CRM Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Montage Hotels & Resorts (Irvine, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Initial interview was a phone screening with HR. The primary focus was to get a better understanding of me and my background. There HR department was very busy, and getting a hold of my HR contact was extremely difficult. Although, I believe that has more to do with how much they are asking of said HR person. As such, is not a negative reflection on her.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Montage Hotels & Resorts.

    Interview

    Be prepared for one of the, if not the most rigorous interview process you've ever experienced. Departmental, Managerial, and finally a Panel interview consisting of between 5-10 of the Executives. If you make it through his process and are hired, you definitely have what it takes for whatever job you're applying for. It's well worth the process, because everyone has to go through it. You can rest assured you're working with the best of the best.
