    I applied online – interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group.

    Interview

    Applied for the position, hear back about scheduling an interview a week later. The first interview was all behavioral. The second was half behavioral and half technical. Asking about different hotel revenue techniques and general M&A questions. Had to work out an excel data sheet to answer some questions. Pivot table was best method for solving this.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (Atlanta, GA (US)).

    Interview

    The interviews were held on one day. In total, 3 people interviewed me (individually). The hiring manager was last. Most of the questions were softballs, nothing very tough. IHG is a company that prides itself on hospitality and making people feel "at home", and this came out in the interviews. Nothing scary at all.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (Paris (France)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very friendly but professional, however the online tests were difficult. First interview followed a spesific outline of questions, but with some flexibility to elaborate further on certain topics if deemed appropriate. If you pass the first interview, you have to do online tests (deductive reasoning, IQ, math, reasoning, etc), and if you pass the test, you have to do a second interview over Skype, and then they will tell you if you made it to the final stage of testing at an Assessment Center with a few select candidates.

    Interview Questions

    • - Tell me about yourself.
      - Why do you want this position?
      - Why InterContinental?
      - What do you know about InterContinental? How did you go about finding information about us?
      - Can you tell me about a weakness you have or been told that you have. Have you done anything to try to improve?
      - You have no direct experience for the position you are applying for. Why should we hire you?
      - Do you have any questions for me?

    Application

    interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (Atlanta, GA (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews, 1 face to face, followed up by another phone interview.
    General open ended questions..."What have you done with ...?" Some questions like "Explain how xyz was done previously and your role with it." All of that was during the first 2 calls and the face to face. For the 3rd call the lower level person who did not make the hiring decision kept asking very technical questions about subjects that were not relevant, technologies that were outdated, or about items that I had already stated that I was not familiar with. He kept asking the same questions just rewording them.
    They said they really liked me and thought I was a good fit at the face to face but then never called me back to say yes or no.
