Easy Interview
Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Holiday Extras (Hythe, Hampshire, South East England, England, England) in Sep 2021

Interview

Despite the reviews I decided to interview at HX. Unfortunately the experience wasn't great and the feedback was more a collection of negative comments than constructive criticism. The company want to develop and enhance their product, they need a better attitude to do this. Anyone who is serious about working here, you need to know someone.

Application

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

Interview

Applied online and invited to a full day assessment at their head office. There were 8 candidates attending and, after an icebreaker, we were split in to two groups and given a group task followed by a presentation to the rest of the group and recruiters. We had the opportunity to listen to several live customer telephone calls before having a 1:1 telephone call with one of the recruiters. After lunch and depending on how successful you were during the day, you were offered a feedback conversation or interview. I was interview by two recruiters who were friendly and allowed plenty of time for conversation. After the interview, I was emailed detailed feedback and an explanation of their decision. Recruitment at many travel organisations has been paused as a result of the 2020 covid-19 outbreak.

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Holiday Extras (Hythe, Hampshire, South East England, England, England) in Feb 2020

Interview

The process was fast I applied online and had a interview the following week, it was a group interview, there was 9 of us including myself, we did a few activity’s, first was “breaking the ice” so you do abit of team work to open you up and talk to your fellow candidates & 4/5 members of staff, then put into groups to design a app and then present it to the rest of the room “I found it unpleasant tbh” and the people you are designing the app with, when presenting it they tell the rest of the room what you have actully contributed to the app! So they stole my ideas and I was left there with nothing to say so remember your there for yourself! Then we had lunch & then listened to a employee on the phone and then do a role play afterwards.. now massive tip I’m going to tell you, I was given 10 mins to listen to someone talking on the phone and i only heard the end of it so I was up against it as I didn’t know how to start the call off, so even though it costs money ring the company up and pretend to be a customer prior to the interview, you’ll be one step ahead and note down the questions they ask you! Unless you know a employee there you are 1000 steps behind as 3/4 or my group knew someone, and it’s a fact that if they have been referred or when applying put the name of the employees name down you know.. they actually get a bonus if your employed.. the role play I did was very hard & I was asked hard questions, I know this because when I asked everyone else how they got on there’s was really easy! ITS NOT WHAT YOU KNOW ITS WHO YOU KNOW! Remember that cos this company massively knocked my confidence. & you are kept there for up to 4 hours & do not get a interview if you failed the role play.

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

Started the day with a group tasks (we designed an app) in which you have to present it to the rest of the groups. Another was a task they asked you to researched for before you arrived. Which was the perfect holiday destination for (your choice) either family A or family B. A telephone role play conversation in which they test your skills. They also buddy you up with someone else that is doing your role so you can see it first hand. They finish the day with a 1-on-1 interview/feedback session.
