    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pacifica Hotels.

    Interview

    Applied through Craigslist. I was then contacted through e-mail for an in-person interview. We went over my resume and a bit of the company's background. I asked them questions on the company's growth and general direction. The controller was friendly and the interview was pretty informal (it was done in the kitchen area). Declined a second round interview with the manager as the pay was less than adequate.
