    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FRHI Hotels & Resorts (Chicago, IL (US)) in November 2010.

    Interview

    I talked with the HR Director. She was very nice to me. It basically consisted of standard behavioral questions. I think they put a lot of attention on the leadership skills since it's going to be a 14-month training program in which one will be directed by a senior manager.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at FRHI Hotels & Resorts (London, England (UK)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was not too difficult. I applied online and came to the hotel for an interview. They showed all interviewees a tour around the glamourous hotel; tea, coffee and cakes were offered. Then, we each had a one to one interview. The questions were almost competency based. My interviewer was so nice, she created a very relax atmosphere so that I can calm myself, be more open and able to answer the best I could.

    Administration Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FRHI Hotels & Resorts in March 2010.

    Interview

    First, you send off your application. I highly advise including a cover letter and references.
    ** Be prepared for this job process to take about 1.5- 2 months. It's not McDonalds and you won't be working for them within 2 weeks -- it takes a looooonng time to start working, so be very sure you want to work for them.

    Within a few days, you'll get an email giving you a link for a personality test. It's very straighforward and takes a short amount of time. A few weeks after that, you'll get your first call to set up the first interview within the week. During the first interview, they ask the standard questions like:

    1) Why do you want to work here?
    2) How did you come by the job ad?
    3) Your last job was [insert last job title] and it's vastly different from the tourism industry. Why work here?
    4) How long do you plan to stay? Why?
    5) Is there anything that could you back from taking this job? (commitments)
    6) (you may get a definition question) What does customer service mean to you?

    Then, you get about 3 behavioural questions -- what would you do if this and this happened...etc etc. They finish off the interview with reviewing your references. I highly advise having 3 solid non-personal references because they WILL be called. Guaranteed. At the end of this call, they'll let you know if you passed -- onto the 2nd interview now!

    A week or so after this, you get the call for the second interview. It will be with someone different...the questions are more in depth so be prepared and know EXACTLY what you did in your last jobs because you should answer the questions with examples from your life. Don't give generic answers because they'll just prod you for a more in depth answer or question your answer.

    1) Why do you want to work here?
    2) How did your schooling/last job prepare you for this job?
    3) Why should we hire you?
    4) What will you be expecting from us?
    5) What type of work environment would make you efficient? What makes a company inefficient?
    6) Do you like working in groups or individually?
    7) What's your communication style?
    8) How have you been creative in your last job? How do you deal with a messy work environment?
    9) How would your last coworkers describe you?
    10) How flexible are you? How would you deal with doing a different job one day as a fill-in?

    These questions are phrased somewhat generically but they are very close to what I was asked.

    Assistant Outlets Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at FRHI Hotels & Resorts (Ottawa, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Standard. Submit cover letter and resume.

    Got called by HR for preliminary questions.

    Got called in for an interview with my potential boss. Pleasant chat, with the standard questions about experience, situational questions, "give an example of" etc.

    Same afternoon my references were called.

    The next week I got called in for a final interview with the department head. This was shorter than the first, but also fairly standard. Why do I want to work there, what do I bring to the role, where do I see myself in 5 years etc.

    A few days later the department head called with a job offer, conditional on my passing a criminal background check. The check was lengthy and done by a third party company. Took over a week.

    After that I got the contract by email and sent it back signed, after we agreed on a start date.
