Quite a normal process, they ask quite simple questions, they may also give u some short tasks/ assessments to do. These include writing suitable captions under pictures, replying to clients in a professional manner or putting tasks you may do during the day in the order of most important to least important.

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Secret Escapes (London, England) in Aug 2021

Interview

Very negative. I saw a recruitment agent advertise a role at Secret Escapes on LinkedIn. I also found the same role advertised on the SE website and applied directly. About a day later, recruiting agent (whom I did not apply to and would not have known who I was) checked my profile, and then contacted me to say as I did not apply through him, he could not put me forward. One month later I get an email from SE telling me I was not being considered for the role. Really unprofessional how SE forwarded my details to the recruitment agent without my permission to tell them I had applied.

Interview

The HR department was very efficient and communicated well during the interview stages. I was first asked to complete a writing task and then invited to a video interview with a manager. I did not feel that the interview was professional. The interviewer did not crack one smile. From the line of questioning I felt that I was constantly defending myself. I understand that interviewers have different techniques but after this interview I felt belittled and that I no longer wanted to work for the company. At the end of the interview I completed an additional writing task. Receiving the declination took quite a long time, 2-3 weeks.

Interview

Excellent communication with HR and interviewers: open, honest, transparent. Company culture shines through the people I was in contact with: inclusive, informal, professional.

Interview

An initial chat with the hiring manager led to a light - medium level difficulty technical interview with the Senior Platform Engineer and another Platform Engineer. A take-home technical task was issued and returned to the team within a week, and the final interview was arranged upon successful completion of the take home task. The final interview lasted three hours, where I went over the decisions and possible improvements for my tech task solution, had white boarding exercises where I had to draw and explain how certain processes work, had a live code pairing exercise, and finally a closing chat where the te

Ich habe mich online beworben. Die Terminvereinbarung für ein Erstgespräch lief ziemlich schnell. Allerdings wurde ich 25 Minuten vor dem vereinbarten Termin via E-Mail informiert, dass die Stelle bereits besetzt worden war. Als HRler finde ich es unprofessionell und respektlos. Hier ein kleiner Tipp: Eine gute Personalabteilung denkt nicht nur, wie wir Stelle X und Y am schnellsten besetzten, sondern sorgt auch für eine angenehme Candidate Experience und pflegt langfristige Beziehungen mit potenziellen Kandidaten.

Interview

Procedure coordinated by a recruiter from the London office, very nice and reachable. 1 pre-recorded video interview + 1 face-to-face interview in the Amsterdam office. I very much appreciated the honest and detailed feedback given by the recruiter over the phone. The people I met gave me a good image of the company.
