    Interview Details

    Group interviews. Followed by 121. General questions. Travel related questions but with a big focus on selling. They are looking for sales people who love travel. Ideal for those people. You won't go wrong if you are the two combined. Strong personality as target driven. Need to be determined in first year as that is the hardest. Once past that easy as.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at STA Travel.

    Interview Details

    Applied for job via website, got a call within a few days asking if I was free for an interview. Went for a 1 on 1 interview with a Regional Sales Manager (RSM) where I was asked stock standard interview questions with some travel stuff thrown in. High emphasis on sales experience and ability and the desire to hit and exceed sales goals.

    A week later was called and notified that I'd been successful, then attended a three day in-store training experience learning the basics of the industry and meeting the people I'd be working with. Then two weeks of training at the head office in Melbourne, met some other staff, drank some free beer, all in all a very good experience.

    After training, you end up back in store on a provisional basis for three months at which time you should be able to do the vast majority of tasks involved in the job unsupervised.

    Travel Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at STA Travel in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Stage 1: Applied Online
    Stage 2; Telephone Interview from STA Travel HR Head Office, 5-10 minutes. I was asked questions like; 'Have you been into one of our retail stores before?' 'Have you visited our website?' 'What do you perceive to be the role of a Travel Adviser?'
    Stage 3; Assessment Centre Day, STA Travel Head Office. Consisted of 11 interviewees and 5 male interviewers, and we were given a series of exercises while seated around a large table.
    - Each interviewee had to give a presentation on themselves, on any topic - excluding travel.
    - Interviewees were split into groups of 3/4 and had to do a 'deserted island exercise' in which we all had to come to the decision whether to stay or go on the island, as a group.
    - Each interviewee was given a piece of plasticine and told to make something from it and sell it to the group.
    The group exercises were very intimidating and intense! The STA interviewers really scruitinised us, in a way which made me feel humiliated.
    At the end of the morning, we were told to come back in 20 minutes after the interviewers had made their decision as to who would make it through to the next round.
    We found an envelope on our place at the table, with an impersonal letter inside, telling us whether or not we were successful, like a game show elimination.
    Those successful made it through to a one on one interview with HR.

    This company is obviously after extroverted sales people, but I felt that the way they ran the interview was very unprofessional. I was very disappointed that I wasted 3 hours of my morning, and would never want to work for STA Travel.
