    I worked at DFS Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great benefits, decent time-off policies, decent career opportunities globally, not domestically

    Cons

    little to no career growth opportunities domestically, slightly oppressive/dry/straight-laced traditionally corporate office culture, not as flexible in terms of schedule

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    strive for better office culture with more relaxed environment, focus on team-bonding initiatives

    Interview Details

    Firstly i received a call for group interview upon my application. It was a good experience to attend the group interview, as you can see a handful of competitive candidates competing. But sadly somebody cut throat and compete in a unhealthy way. I suggestion is to be yourself, and present your best side to the interviewers. Most importably, treat this as a learning expensive and not focusing on too much whether you can get the job

    Interview Questions
    • If you are a management, how would you deal with the relationship problems with colleague and supervisor? (giving specific situations)   Answer Question
