    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Waldorf Astoria (Beverly Hills, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume on line, was contacted by a recruiter and asked to submit a video interview. Waiting to hear regarding an in person interview. The host allows several practice questions which are actually harder than the actual question the appropriate is required to answer while recording yourself.

    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.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Waldorf Astoria (Boca Raton, FL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Have to fill an online application. If they are interested they call you to attend a formal interview with top executives of the department you are applying for. Very friendly and dynamic. Both executives talk with you and ask you many questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Waldorf Astoria (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Two Skype interviews. First time is with one person, second time with two people. Both interviews were behavioral and the second Skype interview was very similar to the first one. Then visit to the office in New York to interview with 4 different members of the team, each representing their part of the rotational program. These interviews were about 5 minutes each and gave a rundown of what job responsibilities are, etc. They also asked behavioral questions and a few "specific instance" questions (name a time when....). Overall, interview process was not difficult.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Waldorf Astoria (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    With the Waldorf Astoria is you have to do a video interview for any job that you apply for. Which is pretty cool and convenient for everyone but at the same time very frustrating.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Waldorf Astoria in January 2015.

    Interview

    Apply online on their webpage. They will send an email asking for a date and time to call you, that was after a week in my case, asking to chose a scheduled date and time to call. If they, by any chance don't call you, try to write them (HR) so they can keep you in mind.

    Massage Therapist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Waldorf Astoria (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    I submitted app. online and called them. They called back for 1st interview. I was not called back for 2nd interview and never had an opportunity to give them a sample massage, even though I had an outstanding 18-year history in massage therapy and outstanding record of work with tourists from all walks of life. I had worked in two other spas similar to theirs for years. I then received a "Dear John" form letter that implied I would not be considered, ever. The only negative remark they made that could be a reason for rejecting me was that I had worked for a 4-Star hotel in the past, and THEY were a 5-Star hotel. They said there was a BIG difference between a 4 and 5 star hotel!!!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Waldorf Astoria.

    Interview

    very structured and detailed about the potion. He was open for conversation about things other than the job/work. The one bad or negative is that from the time you finish application to the day you start is an average of 30-45 days. I know for fact that many good people are lost because of the long process.
