I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TUI Travel (Crawley, West Sussex, South East England, England (UK)) in July 2014.
Applied online and received invitation to interview shortly afterwards (within 2 weeks). Attended an interview in the offices in Crawley. At first I was asked to complete a copywriting task, writing engaging copy by hand for an online brochure having been given the basic information required. I understand that this was a test of my literacy and competency, but in what world do copywriters write by hand? The interview questions were not challenging and seemed to be looking for a specific answer rather than aiming to get to know my strengths and personality which is not what I might have expected from a first round interview. A couple of questions about their brand which demonstrates the ability to parrot info from the internet rather than looking at the competency of my marketing skills. When I asked about the culture of the business and challenged the interviewers to explain the biggest challenges of working for TUI, as well as asking about professional development opportunities, the answers were poor. Professional development meant soft skills courses and powerpoint - I was thinking more along the lines of professional qualifications, leadership programmers, rigorous mentoring opportunities. Hmmm. I got the distinct impression that these 2 were not interested in me after about 5 mins and were just going through the motions. A shame as I thought that this company would be a stimulating place to work. 3 months on I have yet to hear whether I progressed or not. They seemed unsure of whether they would run an assessment day, offer 2nd round interviews etc. Clearly they couldn't even be bothered to send a generic rejection email.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TUI Travel in March 2011.
I spoke to the Supervisor briefly over the phone. She schedule me for a group interview with other interviewees. Once I arrived at the location with the other interviewees, we were shown a slide show presentation about the company (we also filled out applications and questionairres). The Supervisor supported the slideshow by speaking about her own experience with the company and what characteristics are expected of the perspective employee and also what the employee can expect from the company. After the presentation was over, she spoke with each of us individually and asked a few questions. At that point she either offered the applicant a position or told the applicant she would get back to them.
There was no room for negotiations, the wage was the same across the board for new employees.
