I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Thomas Cook (Peterborough, England (UK)) in September 2014.
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.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thomas Cook (Peterborough, England (UK)) in October 2008.
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.
- The competency questions were challenging in that they focus on the ability to demonstrate self awareness in complex stakeholder management situations. Answer Question
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.
