    Guest Services Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sydney
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    If you're studying Hospitality, the interview was done with HR first then the properties "picked" who they liked. (only one property at a time could pick you, so if you said no, then you may not get another property picking you / if you said yes, a better opportunity may have been waiting but missed out on picking you).
    Then met with managers for one interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty straight forward interview questions, nothing that I wasn't prepared for. As long as you follow the STAR behavioural technique you'll be fine. Have a few generalised answers that can be moulded to suit the question.   Answer Question
