Area Director was asked...April 2, 2017

While this is a support role - Choice puts a lot of expectations on sales on the Area Directors and having a sales background

5 Answers

it is a support role but they push sales as it boosts their bonus if the hotels sell more even if it hurts the hotels bottom line by selling the fee based reservations. Less

Glad I am not the only one that had the same experience. And very true that numbers are their main concern and like you said it doesn't matter if it costs the hotel as they aren't the ones paying the bills at the property level. Less

Went thru the same process and got the same canned email. Doesn't seem like they care if you have a Choice background. You would think after flying to the interview and spending a day being grilled that they could follow up with a call and give some feedback to help you the next time. Less

Work history, industry knowledge, how do you deal with people

We are told(demanded) to have no contact with people after the interview. Hence the former title as I didn't agree that if you are down to 6 or less applicants that you can call or email them to let them know instead of leaving them hanging and wondering what the outcome is. My new company is totally the opposite and I love the freedom to interact with applicants and even if they don't get the position they are very appreciative of the call or email instead of leaving them hanging like Choice is very well known for. Less

They are very well known for no follow up after application or interview. If they do it is a generic form email that they send to everyone. Less
