Chief Experience Officer (At the Time, Tour Leader) Interview

Chief Experience Officer (At the Time, Tour Leader)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 months - interviewed at G Adventures in October 2008.

Interview Details – I learned of the position through a friend who had previously worked for G, when they were Gap Adventures. I submitted the application in August and had an interview via Skype in late October. The interview was friendly, and asked general questions about my past experiences and skills.

Interview Question – Situational question - What would you do if you left with your group on a bus, and left a passenger behind by accident?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The salary is fixed for all candidates, and the airfare is reimbursed when the contract is completed (start date in 2009). Start date was negotiable, although I believe they gave me a preferred start date, which I was able to meet.

Interview Question – What would your favourite shoes tell you about yourself ?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Compensation versus the hours expected were not realistic

Account Representative Interview

Account Representative

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at G Adventures in August 2010.

Interview Details – The interview took place over the phone, they called and gave a brief introduction, and then stated that as a part of the process they wanted to conduct a skills test to understand what my knowledge was about world geography. The test consisted of about 15 -20 questions that were wide ranging and not common knowledge unless one spent a lot of time reading travel brochures and magazines. After that we conducted a regular interview with questions about myself, experience and demands of the job.
