    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. 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.

    • 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.

    Hiring process is a long and dragged out. Mine started with a online interview followed by a in person. The last interview stage is a interrogation of bizarre questions one can only find on a game show by three current employees.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. 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.
