    I have been working at Thomas Cook full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Welcoming atmosphere, a lot of honesty, few pointless meetings, no 'old boys club' feel, a good feeling of optimism.

    Cons

    Huge company-wide transformation which makes things a little confusing at times, some out-dated, out-sourced approaches to things like IT but credit where it's due, that's all changed and there are actual English people working for us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to move more things back to the UK, overseas is good but you can create more opportunity at home if you open up more. Also do something about the sheds we work in!!!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Thomas Cook in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Thomas Cook are striving to make their process high-tech, low-touch - this includes recruiting. After an initial telephone screening I was asked to take an online test and attend a video interview where I answered some standard questions about my field that would be reviewed later by a person. After this point the business strategy changed and the hiring was put on hold. Communication from the recruiter was effective throughout, though high-tech, low-touch results in a not very personal experience in my opinion.

    Interview Questions
    • None really, except that the first interview was an online video interview answering some fairly standard questions, which are then reviewed by a person.   Answer Question
