    Digital Content Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Secret Escapes (New York, NY (US)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview itself was fine. It was straightforward. However, what happened after is where the problem lies. I was never contacted again and told whether or not I got the job (obviously, by this point, it's a no). I wrote a thank you note that was never responded to, nor was my followup email. If another candidate was selected, that's fine, but at least have the decency to let someone know where they stand. If this is how job candidates are treated, then I could only imagine how their business is run.

    Accounts Payable Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    I applied online and for the first stage they send through a request for you to complete an online video recording interview.

    Sadly found the Easyrecrue video recording interview system awful, the buttons dont always work when selected, the video recording froze at the start so was really off putting when you're ready to start and the system dropped out midway through the questions, through no fault of mine or my internet instead it just provides a box with interview interrupted and you have no completed the interview but it is being finalised which isn't great.

    So sadly decided to withdraw from the process at this stage as the system Secret Escapes use is just not capable or reliant on delivering the required interview remotely or professionally.

    Talent Acquisition Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Secret Escapes (London, England) in December 2018.

    Interview

    The worst process I've ever seen. First you apply as per usual then for the next stage you're asked to download an app and record videos to 6 questions completely on the spot. The monst in personal and lazy way of recruiting I have ever come across. Very bad impression of the company and would highly advise against applying here.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Was going through the interview process for over 2.5 months and then heard nothing more. Not very professional. Kept getting messages apologising for the delay and then went silent. Quite frankly disappointed.

    Content Editor Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Secret Escapes (London, England) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The process took around 3 weeks. The first step was a writing test to make sure I had writing skills. Second was a face to face interview with the hiring manager. After the interview I was offered to make two new writing tasks to again, prove my skills. The third step (and suppossed to be the final) was a trial day at the office to see how good you fit within the company's environment. Then I was asked for a second trial day before the final decision. I voluntarily declined to stay in the process.

    Quite a long but pleasent process. The process consisted of several stages with interviews, skill tests etc. Awesome HR department and very passionate people working there.
