I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Airbnb (Singapore (Singapore)) in May 2012.
Multiple Rounds of interview via skype and face-to-face, a little messy. Last interview was not set up properly and the CEO was unavailable at the last minute. A little disappointing

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Airbnb (Singapore (Singapore)) in November 2013.
Exciting, cross regional, informative and in depth. I was lucky enough to meet many people in the organisation that helped me make a well informed decision on whether this was the right move for me.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Airbnb (Singapore (Singapore)) in April 2014.
Amazing interview process, with group interviews, individual interviews and overall a great introduction to the company. By the time I had gone half through it I already wanted to be part of Airbnb so much!

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Airbnb (Singapore (Singapore)) in July 2015.
I applied online via the Airbnb website several times before getting a phone call from the hiring manager. Afterwards there were subsequently 6 interviews with my team members, team leaders and people from other departments. These interviews were conducted on Skype and were one to one. After which I had a language test and I received the offer one week later. The whole process took two months because the hiring manager in charge was posted to another department/team and I was lost in between the exchange. Other than that, it was pleasant and smooth process.
- About my experience, how I would handle customer complaints and general chit chat about why I choose Airbnb. Note: remain calm and be yourself. Be really prepared and ask the interviewer questions as well. They are really interesting and amazing people. Some will be your colleagues. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Airbnb (Singapore (Singapore)) in May 2015.
The entire procedure took me 5 months. 5 MONTHS. I had a total of 5 interviews, of which in between is a plus minus one month wait for the results. So for this heart wrenching 5 months, I was just waiting for e-mails coming into my inbox, indicating that I have/have not made it to the next round. Fortunately, 4 months of waiting went past smoothly, probably because I did not to bad for the interviews. Now to the final interview. The team was deciding between me and another candidate, fair enough and I just told myself I needed to give in my all. After completing the final interview, I was told that I have to wait for another week for the interview result. Within this one week, I've seen the job position being taken down the career page, and another fellow glassdoor user posting about getting hired for the same position that I was waiting for. Speculations aside, I think I do deserve a response from the team, regardless of how well/badly I have done for the interview. Seeing it from outside sources instead of them makes me feel unwanted and thrown aside, just because I did not make it to the cut. It is disappointing that I am still waiting for a so-called rejection e-mail from them, just to have a closure and move on with life.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Airbnb (Singapore (Singapore)) in May 2015.
It was extensive. Had to go through 6 interviews (Via Skype and Face-to-face). People were super hospitable when I'm at the office for interview. The panel of interviewees held different job roles which allowed me to understand the company culture and framework more.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Airbnb (Singapore (Singapore)) in June 2013.
The interviewer, first of all, asked me to introduce myself. Then the reasons why I left my previous job. At last, if I was successfully selected for this role, how would I promote this service to users at the target market. Just few questions and all can be expected prior to the interview. This interview took only half a hour, I don't know whether it is normal or not. According to the interviewer's statement, there are five round interviews for applicant, including this one. In the following ones you would be interviewed with 2 HRs and 2 high position managements, which probably takes almost one month. In fact, I was very disappointed about this interview. That was because the interviewer failed to fulfill his promise. As he told in the interview he would notify the result to me in the following week, but I actually got the result after 2 weeks. The result I finally got is tedious and unhelpful for the applicant. Only states that not a match for this role and there are plenty of applicants currently for this company/role...(don't know why it is included) In the follow up after the interview with the company, you, each applicant, will experience whether the company cares your application or not. At least for me, I didn't get at all.

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Airbnb (Singapore (Singapore)).
The worst company in terms of hiring. At first, i was so excited to be shortlisted after the Telephone screening and move forward to the meet up. Its a very good office, all seems like fun people,, but its over there. I admit it that i also having lots of fun on the Meet up,lots of candidates, we play games,snacks,etc. Its half day, and before we left, another "special gifts" are given as a token of appreciation. Next couple of days,,it ruins my day,im not shortlisted. I encouraged myself to call in and asking good advise and why im not shortlisted (as i really want to join Airbnb). They told me that im "not suitable" with the "culture" of Airbnb.. And after that statement, i asked again,when i could re-apply? and the answer, no time limit,but not the same position. So first, the bunch of people that doing the Meet Up are all newbies AND interns, and thats a bad start to REVIEW your candidates. Second, what kind of culture you mean? So youre saying all staff there are FIT for the culture, and they will work hard, not lazy, no complaints, and not drop a review in Glassdoor? Sorry, this attitude because of YOU, Airbnb, unfair system. I tried the second time, applying as Host, and then i got email saying, the position are filled. Yeah right, i checked the website, and that position are still vacant. Will never apply again, and Airbnb, you lost my trust, no longer my fave, will not try your service
