2 people interviewed me and seemed unhappy to do so from the start! Perhaps they had already found a suitable candidate - or maybe I just wasn’t to their liking!

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.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at STA Travel (Manchester, England) in May 2019

Interview

Based in Manchester where their head office is based. Relaxed atmosphere and very friendly team. Interview was over 1 hour where I was asked to give examples of my work skills. They did not pay for my travel expenses though and I had to fly from the south England so very expensive interview.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at STA Travel (London, England) in Mar 2019

Interview

A 2 hour group interview in the evening 7.30pm-9.30pm. The group activities involved passing a pen around. A large group discussion about being trapped on an island (this involved all 15 candidates). We were then given a written task to respond to 3 emails. Then we had 10 minute individual interviews at the end. I got the impression that the interviewers were only looking for a particular type of demographic (upper class gap year kids). I have been to more than 30 countries but the interviewer was dismissive of my travel experience. He did not appear to be listening to any of my responses. We were told that there would be a second group assessment for those who were successful. The whole process seemed quite tedious.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at STA Travel (London, England) in Feb 2019

Interview

Very very bad candidate experience. At te start it was good I applied and got a message instantly, I arranged the phone call with the Manager on the same day. The phone call lasted about 30-40 minutes. She then advised that will be in touch to arrange the next stage f2f interviews. At the time I was very interested in the role and company... 2 weeks later i decided to email and ask for the follow up... no reply!!! 2 more weeks later i saw the advert back on... i thought i would apply because as we know things change and yhe person who was recruiting might have left the compny. As soon as I applied the lady from HR Department emailed and asked for the phone interview. I was being honest and explained that i had a phone conversation with the HR director and she never got back, is this the same role or a new one and asked for the clarification.....no reply! Overall bad experience. Even though if its a no good fit for the compny everyone in this worl deserves a feedback. This is a really poor candidate experience and i hope that this feedback will help you to improve! Good luck!

Interview Questions
  • There was no really a structure to a phone conversation. Just a casual chat,
