    I worked at Wageningen University full-time


    You are treated as a real employee, good working conditions, good salary, and good holiday.


    Wageningen is a small town and not excessively convenient to reach by public transit. It is also a slightly insular community. Very strong male gender-bias at higher positions.

    Advice to Management

    Get a train station in Wageningen. Ede-Wageningen is NOT in Wageningen. Hire more women in higher positions.

    Project-Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wageningen (Netherlands)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    (Translated from English)


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Wageningen University (Wageningen (Netherlands)) in May 2014.


    Het proces was heel soepel en snel. Ik had 3 interviews met 2 personen elk (Teamleider, Manager, manager of manager, elk begeleid door teamlid). Ik kreeg niet de impressie dat ze van tevoren af hadden gesproken welk interview op welke aspecten zou focussen, dus er waren wat overlappingen. Over het algemeen was de atmosfeer heel vriendelijk en positief en ik genoot van de gesprekken. Ik kreeg het uiteindelijke antwoord ook heel snel, wat ik kon waarderen.

    The process was very smooth and fast. I had 3 interviews with 2 people each in total (Teamleader, Manager, Manager of Manager; each accompanied by a team member). I didn't have the impression that they had beforehand agreed on which interview would focus on what aspects, so there were certain overlaps. Generally, the atmosphere was extremely friendly and positive and I quite enjoyed the interviews. I also got the final answer really quickly, which I appreciated.

    Tijdens het arbeidsvoorwaardengesprek werden me vragen gesteld over huidig salaris en bonussen en daarna vroegen ze om mijn verwachtingen. Gebaseerd hierop kreeg ik een aanbod. Proces was heel transparant en heel soepel en snel.

    During the arbeidsvoorwaardengesprek I was asked details about my current salary and benefits and then asked about my expectations. Based on this I received an offer. The process was very transparent and also very smooth and fast.
