    Interview

    HR looked like their were going Bowling and ready for interview,,, Not in a google or Apple kind of way. GDS sells Marketing events but needs to learn to be professional in order to sell to professionals.!! Can you say SMOKE and Mirrors!!! No Brand can survive like that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    interviewed at GDS International in January 2013.

    Interview

    1 phone interview and 2 office interviews, currently in 1st training week so will see how it goes, I have read a lot of bad reviews, but I have no issues to report so far. I will update in about 2-3 weeks after my first pay check. I have declined other offers and told everyone about my new job so I hope this is really training week and not an audition week. I was promised no bait and switch in the interview and was giving a formal offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Only one difficult question. it was more about getting a feel for me and explaining what the job was.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No real negotiation, I was satisfied with initial offer, I will negotiate when I'm in a stronger position i.e: when I prove my self. it is a performance based job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at GDS International (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Fine interview- pretty generic. No real "thoughtful" or tough questions. Atmosphere of work environment was definitely not my style, but can see how others would fit in better. (Must like answering to numbers- which I didn't see as relevant for an event manager... but it seems to be an extremely sales oriented place.)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GDS International in February 2012.

    Interview

    Was asked to come in for an interview on three different occasions. The whole hiring process took a little over 2 weeks. First interview was with the HR manager with simple questions and took 5 minutes in total. Second interview was in the conference room with two different managers in NY on Skype. Those same managers I never spoke to again during the duration of my time at GDS. Last interview was with the conference director. Not too professional more of a amicable experience.
