    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial call from HR Manager. Very basic interview, no trick questions. Overall the personality was pleasant. Second interview with the DOSM. Individual was really stressed out. The interview was skills based. However, the emphasis was more how the individual would fit with the team. Next interview with CEO and CFO. It was more of a meeting rather than an interview.

    Interview Details

    I didn't enjoy the process. They brought several candidates who were competing for the same role on the same day, even having lunch together. that's ok for an internship position, not for a senior role. Pretty uncomfortable.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were OK, but none of candidates got one on one time with the hiring manager. Interview with hiring manager included another candidate at the same time. Akward.   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got to know about this position through a work contact of a regional sales director. The HR manager emailed me and we agreed on a time to talk on the phone, just to get to know more about the work responsibility etc. The HR manager was very friendly and polite on the phone.

    Interview Details

    Walk-In
    Gave the Assistant Manager my resume, and they happened to be hiring. I had previous experience as GSR at the Ramada. They liked I had experience, interview was mainly about previous experience (probably to see how quickly they could get me trained). Got a call next day and wanted to hire me. Training was for 2 weeks. One week check-outs, next, check-ins. Very simple and easy operating system. If you pay VERY closely to details and client information it should be a breeze to you.

    Interview Questions
    • Funniest work experience... had to stay professional about it but still show personally.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Most hotels now only pay $8.00/hr for front desk and you have a lot of responsibility, being manager on duty and always working by yourself, so you have to ask yourself is it really worth it.
