    Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants.

    Interview

    Got an email from the director of the department. Got very excited because wanted to learn more about the company and the position after reading all of these awesome reviews. Responded with a time and date I am available and never heard back. Blamed it on the winter holidays and followed up after 2 weeks-no response. Followed up again in 2-3 weeks, again-silence. Lost hope, gave up. I think this is very unprofessional for the company to treat the candidates like that. Now it makes me wonder how they treat their employees...and the position is still open and was reposted few weeks ago by the way..no wonder..

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Was called for interview 4 days after I applied. Interview was very short...about 15 min. Interviewer was very nice and made me feel comfortable and relaxed....but I think 15 min is not enough to know good enough if person you are interviewing is good or no for this position.
    Interviewer told me that they will let me know the resul after they will interview couple more people.....2 weeks and no response :/....not very professional.

    Overnight Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I had interviewed with the Van Zandt Hotel, didn't get the job, which is fine. That is not the reason for this review. I had 3 rounds of interviews. Afterwards none of the 4 people I met with had the common courtesy or decency to let me know about the outcome. Not even the easy way, a generic rejection email. I feel that once the Employer meets with someone face to face the pool of people to choose from is so little that they should be able to follow up. I know it's not common practice, but it should be. Especially since the candidates show up, spend their time and gas, prepare, research the company etc. The least the employer should be able to do is to send an email.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants (Cambridge, MA (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Went for an interview mid-day, interview lasted about an hour and a half. Met with 5 people. 2 two on two's one 1 one on one. It was a casual setting in the restaurant. There was zero follow up from them after the interview. I believe every candidate should be updated as a courtesy, especially in the Hospitality field.
