Employees rate Atlanta 2.1% lower than the overall average
I have been working at InterContinental Hotels Group as a contractor (Less than a year)
The company has a great energy and everyone I've worked with has been kind, pleasant and helpful.
Commute (in Atlanta) can be really rough, and remote work is not really an option.
Advice to Management
Consider allowing more telecommuting, especially for positions where it's not truly necessary for the employee to be on-site.
I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (Atlanta, GA (US)) in August 2010.
I had an interview with someone in HR who asked the basic HR type questions about why you're looking for a new job etc. I got called in for a face to face.
I met first with the social media manager and this was one of the worst interviews EVER. He was strictly by the book asking me questions that literally came from a sheet HR gave him and they were those questions that have no real answers like "where do you see yourself in 5 years", "what are your strengths?" I thought this was VERY odd for a position that is supposed to think outside the box. It was AWFUL.
Then I met with his boss who is VP of global marketing. That interview went fine. It was more casual and we actually talked about social.
Then I met with someone who is in the marketing group but not social at all. Her role (in fact she told me this) was to gauge how she thought I would fit in with the group.
I don't do well with the where do you see yourself in 5 years kind of questions and thought that overall, it was a lame thing to do for a social job.
