    I have been working at Travix International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * The London office is a great and fun place to work with a great mix of people.
    * Use of the latest technologies
    * Given time and encouraged to learn new skills that can be shared with team members
    * Developers are in charge/responsible from end to end of the systems they work on
    * Good benefits

    Cons

    * Being remote from the main office in Amsterdam can sometime have it's challenges, particularly in the communication area.
    * Seem to have too many priorities

    Advice to Management

    I think you should focus on fewer important priorities and make sure they are delivered fully before moving on to the next.

    Java Developer (Intermediate) Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Travix International (London, England) in February 2017.

    Interview

    They will send you a technical exercise first called BusyFlights that you have to work on during 2-3 hours and then submit it to them.

    The exercise is very long so you will probably do a 20% of them in that time.

    After submitting it, they will review with you the exercise and they will give you some positive and negative points about it. They will ask you how you would improve it.

    After spending 1h and having around 9 positive points and 5 negative points, they passed me to spend around 1h more with the HR.

    After finishing the interview, they gave me as feedback that I was a Junior profile and they didn't have any positions for this role.

    If they already knew that my test had a junior level why they made me go there and lose our time? Another think that didn't make sense for me is that if they think I had a junior/mid level, why they made me lose another hour and a half talking with HR if there are no positions for my level? I had to lose half-day of holidays because of them for getting nothing in return.
