    Lots of entitlement and charm; very little accountability and integrity

    I worked at Host Hotels & Resorts full-time

    Pros

    Host Hotels & Resorts offers excellent salary packages and benefits. Their headquarters in Bethesda is centrally-located in the DC Metro area with adequate access to public transportation, restaurants and shopping.

    Cons

    Host Hotels & Resorts is all fluff and no substance. Top management lacks strong leadership skills. There is no accountability nor is honesty and integrity valued. Everything is centered on the bottom line and sealing the deal, regardless of associate sacrifices or complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your core values and consider taking courses in leadership development. Nothing is worse than having a carrot dangling in your face with the hope that relief is just around the corner. Too many top performers are being overlooked due to incompetent and fearful management who lack leadership skills and abilities.

    Senior Finance Manager Interview Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Host Hotels & Resorts in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with them, it went well. They have a beautiful facility. I went in for an interview and it was very quick, the interview lasted less than 3 minutes. I assumed they had no interest in hiring me at all once I met the hiring manager. They promptly made me take an online finance exam which consisted of questions that I hadnt touched since college.
