    Sommelier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial telephone interviewing stage was smooth and efficient to set up an interview. However, the recruiter did not inform that this meeting would be an assessment taking up to three hours' time. Three team members conducted eye-to-eye interviews, one of which involved an uncomfortable dimmed-lights environment where the interviewer's face couldn't be seen. At the end of this interview a verbal offer for a trial shift was extended and I made adjustments to my calendar for this. When I left a voicemail message fo the manager on the trial day to confirm it, she did not reverse. After one month's delay, I received a curt rejection letter.

    Devops Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA (US)
    Application Details

    interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    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the hiring decision kept asking very technical questions about subjects that were not relevant, technologies that were outdated, or about items that I had already stated that I was not familiar with.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.
