    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at InterContinental Hotels Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great bunch of people to work with
    - work life balance is really respected (flexible working hours, work from home etc)
    - Good benefits package - pension, medical, good salary, free on-site gym with classes, subsidized canteen, staff discounts on hotels, training courses provided (but not externally)

    Cons

    - after going through a major reorganisation IHG is still trying to work out structure, processes, and ways of working which proves very frustrating at getting anything done. I was warned that the pace was slow before I joined, but apparently it has slowed down even further since this re-org to the point where staff are very frustrated.
    - Decisions are being led by the office in Atlanta who see the Europe market as a bit of an afterthought.

    Advice to Management

    - make decisions more swiftly (especially regarding budget) since work needs to get underway much much quicker and the staff are left frustrated. Also, please review the need for sooooo many processes which are slowing down the organisation and meaning we lack any dynamism.

    Digital Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Auckland, Auckland
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (Auckland, Auckland) in July 2017.

    Interview

    It was an in-depth interview process with several different stakeholders and over a number of weeks. It was very enjoyable and challenging and evidently very rewarding due to the offer. Ranging from a phone screening to an initial chat, then a psychometric test, a Skype interview and a final phone call.

    Interview Questions

    • What are three digital trends that you are excited about and how would you apply them to your role?   Answer Question
    • Explain a scenario where you were challenged to make a tough decision and how you handled it?   Answer Question
    • How will you manage a stakeholder who is demanding more of your time than you are meant to give?   Answer Question
