Aberdeen, Scotland

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Hilton Worldwide in October 2010.

Waiter Interview


I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Hilton Worldwide in August 2009.

Interview Details Group interview is quite difficult when facing other applicants for the job. I beleive that if at the first place you try to involves each members from the group it will show managing skills.

Do it as soon as the group questions is asked. It will be more powerful.

Interview Question – Give me an example when you have to do the extra miles?   View Answer

Very Difficult Interview

Work From Home Reservation Sales Specialist Interview

Work From Home Reservation Sales Specialist

I applied online - interviewed at Hilton Worldwide in July 2014.

Interview Details Had to fill out an online application and do a personality test along with a stimulation of working in a call center. It was really easy but time consuming because you have to listen to the whole "training" first. Shortly after that was submitted I got an email to do a video interview on hirevue. It said the process would take 70 minutes but only took around 10. Only a few questions were video related and they give you 3 minutes to answer. The rest were all "essay" questions mostly requiring yes or no responses. A week or so later I received a call to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was a few days later and very challenging. The whole process took an hour long. The questions were ones I really had to think about to come up with answers. You then have to do a role play over the phone with the interviewer. They give you the information before hand so make sure you prepare! You must go step by step through a reservation process and must ask discovery questions to determine the best room to sell. I ended up not selling the room and I was confident I bombed the interview but got a call 2 days later with a job offer!

Interview Question – Describe a time you had to come up with a new solution to something and it failed. Tell me what it was, why it failed, and what you did as a result.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They go over the pay you decide what schedule you will be working.

Bartender Interview

Fort Wayne, IN (US)

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Hilton Worldwide in March 2013.

Interview Details Basic questions were asked. Not very informative about company and policies. The interviewer came across as if he was bored and didn't want to be there. I don't think I would have gotten the job without me knowing one of the managers. They did a background check and it took over a week before I knew I actually got the job.

Negotiation Details – Make sure you ask what the pay is and not assume a certain amount.
