  1. Learning Experience Designer Interview

    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sponge (United Kingdom) in Sep 2021

    Interview

    The first stage was a phone interview. Lots of red flags - I don't think job description is completely accurate.

    I got through to the second stage but was made to feel as though the company was doing me a favour by letting me through which left a sour taste in my mouth so I withdrew my application.
    Interview

    What's the most innovative thing you've worked on? What would your boss say are your three biggest strengths/weaknesses? What's the most challenging feedback you've had?
