    Night Auditor/Front Desk Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Grand Rapids, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Super 8 Motels (Grand Rapids, MN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I worked there before as a housekeeper, so it was actually just a quick chat of expectations and then catching up. Easiest interview I've ever done. Because they were already familiar with my work ethic, it was basically an offer straight out of the gate. My boss doesn't come at things sideways!

    Front Desk Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fruita, CO
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Super 8 Motels (Fruita, CO) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Saw an ad on Craigslist for a front desk agent/clerk in Fruita, Colorado. I sent my resume and heard from the owner lady about a week later. I met with her and it wasn't really an interview. More like an awkward first date. After 30 minutes I filled out a background authorization and was on my way. Played phone tag for about a week before I was scheduled to meet with the GM in Grand Junction on Horizon drive. That interview lasted about 5 minutes. I could tell it did not go as well like the interview with the owner. Fast forward three weeks after first email, I have not heard anything. I kept hearing "Super busy! Lots of computer upgrades this week". Nobody is that busy that you can't spare 2 minutes to give me a yes or no. I have since found another job that pays more and more hours. Thanks Super 8!

    Front Desk Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Super 8 Motels in September 2015.

    Interview

    Filled out the application online on Sunday, got a call on Tuesday, interview on Thursday morning. The interview was very informal and consisted of the only on-duty manager who was also running the front desk at the same time.

    Interview was short and went well, I thought. I was informed that the interviewer wasn't sure if they were hiring for a front desk clerk, which is what I applied for, a full-time front desk clerk. He was aware of a night audit (part-time) position that's available. They're continuing interviews and may give me a call back "after the holiday weekend."

    An entire week later I was asked to come in for an assessment test, which was a lot of math questions, some personality questions and some common sense questions. After the interviewer reviewed the answers, I was asked to sign a consent form for a background check.

    Two days after that, once the background check came back, I was offered the Night Audit position and accepted.
