    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Columbia Sussex.

    Interview

    Arrived on time for interview and had to wait about 20 minutes for F&B Director. He asked me about my skills, previous experience, and ability to work as a team. After he interviewed me he had his boss the GM interview me. This time the GM asked all of the questions, but the F&B Director remained in the room. The GM tested my general wine knowledge and wine pairings. He also asked me a series of questions geared at testing how strong my skills stated were. The GM told the F&B Director that he approved and the F&B Director told me I was hired. He told me to come back the next day for training and he told me what to get for a uniform. After each interview I was asked if I had any questions. I asked a few questions. I mention this because after I was hired and had been working for the company for a while different managers and directors had discussed how their interviews had gone and they had told me that they had qualified applicants for different jobs that were not hired because they didn't have/ask any questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me "tell me about yourself" question. They asked if I had any experience, wine knowledge, etc. Mostly they based their questions on my resume.   1 Answer
