HotelTonight UK 146-148 Clerkenwell Road Get Directions
I have been working at HotelTonight full-time (More than a year)
HotelTonight's culture is something unique - Ask any current or former employer and they will tell you they feel they'll never work for a company with the vibe HT has. On top of that, the level of transparency and ownership is truly amazing, from interns to country managers. So many people start their careers at HT and I can say nobody regrets to do so
Change is constant and in a small office you can feel that even more. Additionally, working with SF may mean staying slightly longer ( work life balance is still ver good) and difficults collaboration and alignment
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at HotelTonight (London, England (UK)) in March 2018.
I was referred by a current employee. After my CV went through some internal review, I received an email from Naomi, who guided me through the entire interview process and conducted my initial screening interview. Naomi was great to speak with and was very encouraging.
The screening interview covered my motivations for the position, my work history and relevant experience, and also included a number of situational questions (about account management and sales). At this stage, the questions were general enough to not require a super detailed understanding of the hotel industry, but did assume a solid general understanding of HotelTonight.
The next interview was a 30 minute video call with the hiring manager for the position. Naomi gave some guidance on how to prepare for this next stage. The basic structure of the questions was the same as in the first interview--motivation for applying and then delving into situational questions--but this stage required a much greater understanding of HotelTonight, its features, and its core value proposition, as well as an ability to think critically about the hospitality industry. For example, I was asked to anticipate the biggest challenges from hotels in pitching HotelTonight, which required a solid grasp of the current market and an understanding of HotelTonight's position within that market. There was ample time at the end of the interview to ask questions about the position. The conversation was really relaxed and fun.
The next step was an on-site interview, with 4-5 different sessions with different members of the team. Each component covered different things (such as data analysis), but all were relevant to the core responsibilities and challenges of sales, business development, and managing partner relationships. Each interview was very relaxed and conversational, the questions all felt useful and relevant, and everyone was very friendly and encouraging. By the end, I felt I gained a decent understanding of the team dynamics and office culture. After these 1-1 interviews, there was a sales deck presentation. I was given a HotelTonight sales deck, without accompanying notes, and was given 15 minutes to prepare a presentation. Everyone who interviewed me then returned to listen to my presentation and ask questions. Before the presentation, I thought this would be the most stressful part, but it was actually quite fun and assessed my knowledge of HotelTonight. The following day, there was one additional 1-1 video interview with the Director of EMEA. This was very efficient, and quickly covered my motivation for the role and assessed my understanding of the expectations involved in a sales role.
A few days later, I was called by Naomi and was offered the position. Overall, all stages of the interview felt very relevant, and helped me understand my own compatibility with the role and my own fit with the culture.
