    Copywriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at STA Travel (London, England) in September 2019.

    Interview

    They contacted me ready for an interview, then disappeared for weeks. So I thought it was over before it had even started. Then they got back in touch and arranged an interview in London, plus an engaging writing task.

    The interview was good fun and it was all the standard stuff. They eventually went for someone who had experience with a competitor. If that's a genuine reason, it's a bit tediously corporate. But at least I got decent feedback, although I had to chase them up about it.

    I enjoyed the process and they were all very friendly.

    My only issue is they could have easily held the one hour interview over Skype. There's a well-documented cost of living crisis in this country and they got me all the way down there at considerable expense for one hour. I mean, really, Skype exists - it was even highlighted during the interview. Worth considering for future candidates as it's thoughtful and respectful gesture if you don't live in London. You go all that way and then got rejected due to a technicality. But ho hum, such is life.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at STA Travel (Melbourne (Australia)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Group Interview process they are looking for passionate and resourceful people who they believe to fit with their company profile/culture/ethics.
    The group stage was great, I did however find the interview section soulless perhaps this was just my luck but those interviewing gave no interaction which was exactly opposite to what the morning was trying to establish.
