    I applied online – interviewed at EF Education First North America.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview lasted about 15 minutes. Fairly easy, basic questions about knowledge of the position applied for. Try to understand what EF's goals are, and their culture. At the end it's nice to ask questions of your own

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at EF Education First North America.

    Interview Details

    I was brought in first for a group interview, then for three one on one interviews. The group interview was with about 8 other prospective employees. It started with a general introduction to the company, then we all introduced ourselves and several of the managers also introduced themselves. Then we all went around and had mini interviews with each of the managers, with each interview lasting about 4 min long. Overall a little intimidating at first, but ultimately pretty fun.

    My one on one interviews were with three of the managers, two who I had previously met/spoken with, one who I had not. They asked very individualized questions, trying to see what type of person you were, etc. Each interview lasted 45 min to 1 hour.

    Interview Questions
    • During the group interview, we had 60 seconds to explain something that we were passionate about, that wasn't related to the job posting (i.e. something to do with travel or sales).   View Answer

Each individual answered to the group.

    Tour Consultant Interview

    Interview Details

    Interviewed at a career fair. The interview was brief and fairly straight forward. The career fair setting was a little odd for an interview because there were probably about 50 interviews for different companies going on at the same time in a hotel ballroom. They really want to know why you would be good at sales. I thought the interview went fine, but the interviewer did not give me her card at the end and I nervously forgot to ask her for it. I inMailed her to thank her for the interview and never heard anything back.

    Interview Questions
    • No technical questions. Be prepared to talk about you interest in sales. She also wanted to know who I am off paper - the "real" me.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    It's a group interview. So there are 8 of you all going for the same position and you don't know how many they are looking to hire. The group atmosphere is tough - you don't want to be the one to be too obnoxious or the one who is too quiet. You first all interview with HR & then with about 10 supervisors.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EF Education First North America in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The first interview is a group one and you go around the room and answer the same questions more of an informational session with all candidate who most are fresh out of college and have no real work experience. Second interview is fairly basic same types of questions but able to elaborate on previous questions and work experience. My interviewer didn't seem to know what questions to ask me it was kind of awkward. The job itself sounded tolerable at best and not really enough money to live off of for the hours your expected to work. Seemed like a good transitional job for people new to a city or right out of college with very little to no work experience.
