    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts in September-2013.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the LDP through the university I attended. Fairmont recruiters were at a career fair during the fall semester. I had two, 1-hour interviews in-person following the career fair with those recruiters. I then had a 1-hour phone interview with a corporate HR Manager who further screened me and asked for preferences for the program. I was then contacted by the HRD at the specific hotel, who went over details of the program and the individual property. I received an offer letter following that phone call, three and a half months after the career fair.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    1st round is on-campus recruiting or over the telephone. Questions are pretty standard behavioral and hospitality experience-based.

    2nd round is over the phone with the HRD from the property where they'll place you. Same type questions as first round, but more conversational. They may ask you to speak with a manager from the department(s) where you'll work.
