    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Toronto, ON
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Hyatt in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Attended a Park Hyatt recruitment day where they were conducting interviews on the spot. I waited to be called where I was first interviewed by the Assistant Banquet Manager. It was very relaxed and asked background questions and questions about the type of person I was (ex. hobbies, interests, etc). Once I passed that round, I then waited for my second interview with the Banquet Manager who then asked me more work related questions and behavioural ones such as, "What would you do if…" and "Why would you want to work here?" etc. Once the second interview ended, it was hinted that I would be contact by HR soon (~2 weeks) to confirm my employment.
