    Management Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Penn National Gaming (Telephone, TX) in August 2019.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview fairly quick after I applied. I was told I did great, they liked my background and second interview would be scheduled next week. I did not hear back, waited 2 weeks, emailed the HR rep and no response. Waited another 2 week and emailed this person again with an updated resume. Maybe they were fired? My portal at their job site still says "under review." Kind of makes you wonder what kind of company this is? The least they could do is send an automated email like most other companies if they are no longer interested.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Penn National Gaming.

    Interview

    I applied and an hour later they responded asking if I wanted to set up a phone interview. I set one up a week later as it was the available time for the recruiter. A week later and it is phone interview time, they never call. I emailed them confirming the appointment only to get a repsonse saying they filled the position. I took time off of oy current job to do this interview only to get treated unprofessionally.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Penn National Gaming (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Honestly, the most unprofessional interview experience I have endured in my 5+ years of hospitality management. Stay away from the Hollywood Casino in San Diego! The hiring manager declined a copy of my resume at the interview saying "he didn't need it," then immediately started rapid firing questions, many of which were not directly related to the position. He would ask things like "Name 3 types of red wine from California but not from Napa" then would interrupt me after I named one and change the question. There were no questions about my management style or prior experience. It was very off putting.

    A couple of weeks later I received a phone call at 9pm on a Tuesday night, and to my surprise it was the hiring manager. He asked if it was "a good time," which obviously was pretty strange considering it was past 9pm on a weekday. All he wanted to say was that they were still considering my application and they would let me know by the next week. I did not hear back.

    A month passed and I accepted a position at a different property, life goes on. Then almost 3 months after my interview, I receive another strangely late evening call again. Having long forgotten about the Hollywood Casino, how surprised was I to once again hear from this hiring manager. He asked if I was still interested in the position, I said "I'm sorry but I hadn't hear from you in 2 and a half months so I have moved on to another opportunity" to which he started badgering me about where it was, and if "I was really happy with my decision?" to which I replied "well yes, it has been almost 3 months now. Thank you but I am not interested."
