    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Holiday Extras (Bristol, England) in February 2020.

    Interview

    At home assessment which was then "reviewed" by a developer at Holiday Extras.

    I found the review to be extremely disappointing. I was told that there were several issues with my submission, all of which didn't make sense and could be countered. The "best" one was that I was told by adding a small React hooks library I had "bloated" the web application... even though it scored 99/100 on Google Lighthouse (whilst I may add that the holidayextras home page scores less than 50!).

  • We held our first #HXHosts event yesterday, inviting the awe-inspiring Natalia Cohen part of the world record breaking, all female @coxlesscrew. She left us all energised, motivated and inspired. 'It was one of those rare talks that really inspired me deep at my core.' one HXer said. Check our their documentary on Netflix: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ7Ck

    Losing Sight of Shore - Everyone has a Pacific to cross

    EVERYONE HAS A PACIFIC TO CROSS, and the journey of the Coxless Crew is truly a symbol for the 'Pacifics' we all cross in our lives everyday. Whether it's overcoming an illness, writing a book, standing up for yourself, or in fact a physical challenge similar to the row, we want to hear about your experience!

  • Over the past few weeks, HXers donated over 100 presents to our HX Giving Trees for women and children living in local refuges this Christmas. The response was overwhelming so a big thank you to everyone who took part and for your generosity. Here we are delivering the presents...
