    Sommelier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  London, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed 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.
