    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at EF Education First (Boston, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted resume, had a phone interview, invited to Boston for group interview, 2 Skype interviews and a final in-person interview in Boston. Interviewers were very friendly and the group interview in Boston was pretty fun. Very fast paced and you had about 3-5 minutes with 7-8 different people on the Sales team. Group interview started with casual questions as a group around the big table (Why EF? What does EF do/what does the role entail?)

    I applied online. I interviewed at EF Education First.

    Interview

    15-minute phone call (stage one). I received an email invitation about a week in advance. The interview was very straightforward and the interviewer was very nice. I was alerted about a week later that they wanted me to attend a group interview in Denver. After that, individual interviews the next day (if I am selected). Seems like a lot of interviewing but not too difficult.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EF Education First (Denver, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had gone through three interviews, My first was a phone interview that lasted roughly half an hour. The next week I got an email asking if i could come in to a group interview because somebody had cancelled. It was a fun group interview that included a tour and round of interviews with directors of regions that lasted for 3 minutes with each director. Following that interview I found out the following day that I would get another opportunity to meet with them. My last interview was with two specific directors that lasted roughly an hour and a half. They asked about my resume and questions/topics that stood out to them during the round robin in the previous interview. At the end of the last interview I asked for feedback, I was told to be more concise with my answers and that They were uncertain if I would be able to deal with the volume of calls I would need to make a day. I was told that I would hear from them within four days. Four days went by, and nothing. I sent a follow up email the following day, and the day after I got an email stating that I hadn't got the position. I still can't decide wether It was blanket or meaningful. I became invested in EF during this process, I plan on applying again in the future because I want a career in this industry and EF is a company that my morals and passions align with.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EF Education First (Denver, CO) in February 2015.

    Interview

    They begin the interview process by giving you a tour of their beautiful facility where you are allowed to ask questions about the company. After the tour they take you into a conference room where they show you a video about EF and then proceed to give you a brief history of the company. Once that part is done EF brings in upper-level employees (the number of upper-level employees present depends on the number of interviewees) and in my interview the first thing they asked each of us to do was introduce ourselves and our favorite place we've ever traveled to. After the introduction they ask each interviewee to give a 45 second sales pitch for a product that believe in, in front of the entire group (the order in which you pitch is completely up to you). After the pitch, the upper-level employees spread out around the room and then place and then ask each interviewee to pick an interviewer to sit next to. From there you are given 3 minutes to interview with that employer and then asked to rotate to the next interviewer and do so until you have interviewed with each employer (think speed dating). Once you have interviewed with each interviewer, you are then all brought back together and given time to ask questions.

Then about 6 weeks later notified I would be able to come into the office for a group interview process - scheduled for a month after that. Then notified a week later about a second round interview, that could be conducted over the phone.

    First step is a phone screen. Pretty basic about work history and career goals, as well as the full job description and what it entails. Time for questions at the end
