    I have been working at Hilton Worldwide full-time (Less than a year)


    They truly care about employees before guests. Not to say that their guests aren't treated like VIPs, they just care that much about the people who work there. Everyone knows each other and encourages each other. It's incredibly easy to do amazing work when it feels like you're working with friends who want to see the hotel succeed as much as you do. It's almost like a cult -- you will not meet anyone there who tells you they don't treasure their job, and if they do have issues, management is incredibly supportive. Best place to work in the Columbus area.


    November through February is incredibly slow. It's the nature of the business though, not necessarily this hotel's fault. Sometimes turnover is high in more entry-level positions

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hilton Worldwide.


    I had a phone interview initially that was all the basic stuff. After about a week, I came in for a second interview and a written test. About 3 weeks later they made me an offer. The test was not difficult. the recruiter that helped me get the job checked in several times over the span and was told they were still trying to make a decision.
