    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at G Adventures.

    Interview Details

    I'd previously been working as a Tour Leader for Intrepid Travel, so had a chat with the local management and sent some emails off to people in the Bangkok Office. They hired without an interview or any other procedure.

    Negotiation Details
    There was none, they just asked how soon I could start as they had trips to run and no Tour Leaders.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at G Adventures in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    First did an online interview, followed by in person interview, and finally "G Factor" interview. All in 2 weeks time. G Factor interview is used to get a feel of personality to see if you fit in with the culture of the company. You spin a wheel with strange questions and have to answer them. First 1 on 1 interview was basic skills & behavioural questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Not really any difficult questions, but G Factor interview is filled with unusual questions that make no sense such as "how would you describe your 2 years in adult film industry" you need to have an easy going personality and not be uncomfortable with odd questions like these.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    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 dayinterviewed 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.

    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.
