    Reservation Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (North Charleston, SC (US)).

    Interview

    After I applied online, I had a phone screening where they asked a few questions. Very soon did I hear back for an in person interview. The interview was not too intimidating. They started with a tour of the facility, then we sat down and asked questions. Then they gave you a sheet of information about a hotel, left you alone for about 10 min to review it, and called you on the phone where you had to act like a reservation agent and sell them the hotel room. Little nerve-racking if you have never sold over the phone before but they give you great feed back and they gave me the yes your hired on the spot.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group.

    Interview

    I think they already decided my outcome by the time I went in for an interview. They just asked me a few behavioral questions to determine my fit and asked me where I want to be placed as an intern and that was it.

    Senior User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group in July 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted through a staffing agency (no surprise nowadays). After about a week I was contacted with a design challenge to redesign the site within a week. Already for one person this is a unicorn challenge but I see where they want to see design as a whole. Once announced a phone screening interview of only thirty minutes was given. This was in no way enough for me to present my solutions and ask questions. They wanted to know more of the design and not allow a chance to actual answer company questions that are important to a first interview. Afterwords they provided no feedback on any part of the presentation so you will have no bearing as to where you need to improve or focus.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (Atlanta, GA (US)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Spoke to hiring manager for about an hour. We talked at length about my background, what was needed in the role. The job description was very vague so the call really helped me understand the details of the role. However during the call, the hiring manager decided I was too senior for the role. Process ended there.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group.

    Interview

    Single manager interview. Similar to other call center interviews, you must answer basic questions such as how you handle stressful situations. You must also do a mock call. Overall very straight forward process. Research typical IHG information such as what the company standards for and what they actually do and you will be fine.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group.

    Interview

    Very easy, everyone was nice, but tests are time consuming. Applied online, went in for interview within two days. Be forewarned there will be an hour and a half worth of tests on the computer when you go in for the interview, but they are painless. First interview with hr, then tests, then with manager. Entire process took three hours but that was my experience.

Once I passed it, it prompted me to schedule a phone interview through a link they sent to my email. I scheduled for the next morning. A representative from HR called exactly at 9:30 to conduct the interview. It was really quick, maybe about 8-10 mins. Very basic questions and a summary about the position...pay, what you'll be doing, etc. I was then invited to come in to a face to face interview which took about an hr. I had about 8-10 scenario questions. After that I did a mock call. My interviewer said I did excellent but they would call with their decision by the following week. About 2-3 hours after leaving the interview, I received the call offering me the position. Very easy and smooth process!!
