    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at EF Education First.

    Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EF Education First.

    Interview

    Included multiple interviews with senior/executive management team, HR, and potential teams I would be managing. Included initial phone screen and three in-person interviews. Each in-person interview included meeting many people throughout the product, which helped me understand the team, culture, environment, needs of the business, etc. Multiple meetings with my direct peers and management team was great to ensure I would be a solid fit within the management team.

    Travel Support Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at EF Education First (Cambridge, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Disappointing- I emailed the hiring manager, who gave me the date of the interview, and she corrected herself three times, which confused me. I responded to her email saying I was available for the interview, and she told me that I had said the wrong date (though she changed the date three times), and refused to let me correct myself.
    I am severely disappointed in this company- as a past customer and potential job candidate, I feel like I have been betrayed, and my opinion of this company has been tarnished. I'm sure that most of the employees here are great, and I would have loved to work there. However, this one bad employee makes me wary of applying, or using (or recommending) their services to anyone. My only request is that I hope that I could talk to someone in HR in the company. But don't let this sway you from working for the company, but just be warned...

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at EF Education First (Boston, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview was a phone screening. Fairly normal, a lot of character based questions. I interviewed from across the country so I could not do an in person interview, so we did it over the phone. The second phone interview consisted of character based questions, sales scenarios, and then a Q and A. I am still waiting to hear back about the third and final interview. Its been about a 4 week process so far. I did rather poorly on the scenarios, but the interview gave me feedback and advice on all of the questions.

    Interview

    Shortly after applying for the position, I was invited to an event that consisted of a presentation about High School Exchange Year and two interviews, one by the president and another by a team member. Both were short but I had plenty of time to ask questions about that division of EF and its work culture. The follow-up consisted of two more interviews.
