    Guest Experience Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Luxury Retreats (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Process took 2 weeks. 1st was phone interview and 2nd person interview. The person interview was fine. Everyone is very nice and polite. But I find it that the questions they asked is nothing to do with your skills or experience that you have. Only questions about your personality. There is no chance to prove them that you are qualified person for this company and what skill and experience you can bring to it . Also found that they dont have enough time to answer your questions...

    Administration Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Luxury Retreats (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Applied online, was then contacted by email to schedule phone and in person interviews. Most of those I interacted with were NOT qualified to hold their positions. Unorganized, uninformed and unclear communications throughout. Staff seemed confused, looking at their LinkedIn pages it became clear that this was the first HR position for most of their staff. Very high turn over in their management structure, would advise serious candidates to stay away, despite possibility for a decent outcome, much more likely to get caught up in the childish mess.

    Interview Questions

    • How my current role played a part in my decision to apply (humorous considering they had a different CV in their hands while interviewing me)   Answer Question

    Ad Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Luxury Retreats.

    Interview

    Two people interviewed me. One was HR, other was subject matter expert. The interview was thorough but mostly questions on the surface. The blocking was definitely the salary and when faced with a higher expectation, they asked if I was ready to accept lower than what I was earning.

    Administrative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Luxury Retreats (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Email Submission, Phone Interview, In Person Interview.

    Person scheduling interviews via email was very disorganized. Person doing the initial phone screening was far less than qualified to do so. Second phone interview was cancelled less than 10 minutes in advance saying that they had found the candidate but wanted to consider me for another position. Never heard back about anything from them. Previously interviewed with them in a process that took weeks, lack of follow up, and every one of my 3 interviews with them they've had the wrong resume. Overall, HR team seems to be quite lacking in experience, at least those I dealt with. Unorganized and incompetent... thought it would have changed now that they were bought by Air BnB but seems that they are still tearing through staff and unable to keep good upper management. Won't be reapplying to any future positions.

    • Not a single question that wasn't already on the resume provided. Nothing insightful was asked.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Luxury Retreats (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    First interview has been a meet up with people from LR. We talked with them on an informal basis which was great, less stressful.
    The second one has been a face-to-face interview with 2 people from LR, a role play and a group exercise.
    I've been very impressed by the place and the atmosphere of the office, great place to work I am sure and you can feel it when you're talking with LR's employees!

    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Luxury Retreats (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I went through in total 7-8 rounds of phone and in-person interviews with various senior management and team members from both Luxury Retreats and Airbnb, which I understand is typical hiring process. The interviews covers both the technical and skills experience and culture fit i.e. knowing Airbnb core values are important.

    Corporate Events Manager & Inside Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Luxury Retreats (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    the company seems to have hired the worst people in HR.
    They seem to be young, inexperienced and unable to spot talent as an HR employee should.
    As a true hotelier and an experienced sales manager and opening hotel project manager across the world for the past 8 years, I can tell you that the reason why they have high turnover is because their HR staff are not hiring the right, skilled, loyal employees.
    i think just about anyone with longer work experience would know how inexperienced they are.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Luxury Retreats (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Respectful of my time. Everyone I spoke with treated me kindly and was prompt and detailed in their communications with me. They gave specific timelines on when I could expect an answer, and I really appreciated that. While the whole process took quite a bit of time, I never felt like I was being left hanging. The in-person interview was challenging but not stressful, it felt more like a "getting to know you" than a "tell us why we should hire you" situation.

    Interview Questions
