None that I can remember, though this was way back in 2001-2005 so probably have changed now, and this was my first job.
However, I DID have to complete an "aptitude" test of sorts (more like a general hospitality type test) of which I scored well enough to start my employment. Only to then be told I did "very well on my test, seeing as though it was a test for the managers position"! They had given me the wrong test haha.
