    Director, Training and Quality Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Batavia, IL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Waldorf Astoria (Batavia, IL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    After submitting an online application, I was contacted within 2 business days for a request to start the interview process, beginning with a video interview. A new experience for me, and very interesting! A self recorded video interview with a chance to practice before saving your final responses and submitting. There is no person on the other end. I was speaking into my microphone using my webcam, responding to questions that appear within the video application. The video interview must be completed within 72 hours from the time the information is provided. I enjoyed the new technology and the opportunity. This type of interview was very appropriate for the position that I was interviewing for.
    Within 4 day’s from my interview submission the same recruiter reached out to thank me, and kindly explained their budget was below my minimum salary requirements. I was so impressed that she took the time to contact me and provide the candid response! Nicely done, Corrine!

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Very negative experience. The first interview failed because they changed the date and time and I was not fully informed. The second time finally worked out, I was told to wait for a week to hear the feedback. Two weeks past and I sent an email to HR, no one reply. Now 3 month past, I saw my classmate post his offer letter on his social media, finally I know that they had a decision. The whole process was very disappointing. You can tell that the HR team is small and functioning inefficiently.
