    Programmer Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Thomas Cook (Peterborough, England (UK)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Thomas Cook are striving to make their process high-tech, low-touch - this includes recruiting. After an initial telephone screening I was asked to take an online test and attend a video interview where I answered some standard questions about my field that would be reviewed later by a person. After this point the business strategy changed and the hiring was put on hold. Communication from the recruiter was effective throughout, though high-tech, low-touch results in a not very personal experience in my opinion.

    Interview Questions

    • None really, except that the first interview was an online video interview answering some fairly standard questions, which are then reviewed by a person.   Answer Question

    Half day assessment with a welcome/about us presentation, technical test, interview and group exercise, all of which were very relaxed. Frequent refreshment/rest breaks were good too. Thomas Cook people were very open and friendly.

    Resourcing Business Partner Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thomas Cook (Peterborough, England (UK)) in October 2008.

    Interview

    2 stage interview process consisted of a comprehensive competency based interview and a more informal 'get to know you' session with an existing member of the team. The Resourcing Manager gave a considerable amount of information about the role and the company. The competency questions were mostly relevant and some were challenging. Generally it was a professional and robust process.

    Interview Questions

    • The competency questions were challenging in that they focus on the ability to demonstrate self awareness in complex stakeholder management situations.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The hiring manager was very up front at the beginning what the range was, I was equally honest about the amount I was looking for, which was within the range. At offer stage I received the amount I was looking for. No games or silliness.
