    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Agoda in January 2020.

    Interview

    Your application experience begins with a series of long, tests. They will take you hours to do! Many of which didn't seem relevant to the job. They made me take a SQL test for example.

    Interview was three phone calls over the phone/Blue Jeans app for a process improvement focused gig on the side of the business that deals with accommodation providers.
    1. First interview was with HR. Standard performance questions, personality stuff.
    2. Second interview was with the hiring manger. This interview had more situational questions.
    3. Third interview was with the department director

    My red flag for the gig was when I asked the director about "work-life balance". I always ask this for a job as I have a family and I want to be able to spend time with them. Having previously asked the hiring manager and HR rep, what they do outside of work and both answering me "going to the company gym" was slightly alarming. When I asked this question to the director of the department, she paused with a look of shock. That look of shock you might get when you ask for twice as much salary as a firm can provide for a position. Her answer was equally shocking "yeah, we struggle with work-life balance". Then the conversation pretty much ended there. She said "I gotta go". I think I dodged a bullet.

    Product Manager Interview

    Interview

    I just got an email from recruiter and then was given an assessment to take work on.

    This online assessment was so hard and so pointless that I just put in answers without thinking because it’s such a waste of time.

    Why are companies even giving these exams? Like what is the value anymore?

    I clearly failed and got email saying so.

    This company sounds like they are stuck in the 80’s with these tests for seasoned workers!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Agoda in June 2019.

    Interview

    This is for a position in Bangkok. They were posting all over LinkedIn as various US locations, but explicitly saying they would relocate you to Bangkok, which is how I found the position. I applied, and got reached out within 1 day for the first part of the screening:
    It was one timed test (multiple choice + 3 coding). Then I passed this, and I scheduled a skype interview. They asked me some random knowledge questions and a few coding. The knowledge questions were honestly a bit weird, they were very theory and unrelated to most practical use cases.

    After that, it was a coding challenge that you could take however long you wanted to complete, up to some number of days. This was a fun exercise, with extensions if you're interested in taking it that far, but they explicitly mention you shouldn't be spending a whole day on it (in total number of hours).

    Then, it was 1 more skype interview which involved some behavioral questions + knowledge questions, as well as 2 coding.
    After this, they were ready to take me to the next stage, which was the fly out. They had an engineering manager call me to provide me more info on logistics, salary, etc. to set expectations.

    Finally, it got to booking the onsite fly out interview. It took them couple days to finalize all these logistics, and after some back and forth, it finally it was set in stone - they booked everything for me for approx. 4 weeks in advance and I was preparing for the trip.

    Then, several days later, they decided to cancel the entire onsite because of changed project priorities, which was really disappointing, since I had already planned my schedule around it. They were very polite about it though, which I appreciate.

    Overall the actual interview screens were not that technically difficult. You will have to worry about scheduling around time zones. They were fairly responsive when setting up the screens, but were less responsive when figuring out the onsite logistics.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Agoda (New York, NY) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Received an informal email from a hiring manager in Singapore. Emailed again and then postponed. Was sent a video link that was ignored....received a phone call. The person interviewing me was a director of product who was trying to be much smarter and insightful than he really was and it was super apparent. Bizarre culture -

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Agoda in February 2019.

    Interview

    Recruiter called me over a VOIP line with an HK number eventhough he was based out of Bangkok. I could barely understand his English and he kept pressing me for numbers regarding salary. Like poker, you never show your hand. After reading other reviews, I will probably want to excuse myself from the process before I waste any more time.

    The interview process was quick and swift. They were very clear and orderly. I just didn't have the experience they needed to tackle the responsibilities of this role. Overall, it was a great learning experience and meeting the team.

    Phone interview asking about you background.
    Two rounds of technical interviews including algorithms, statistics, and brain teasers.
    I was a local applicant, so it was an on-site interview. I had to explain my answers and calculations on a white board. The difficulty was average.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Agoda (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It began with a call with the recruiter who was very nice in the entire process. I then met with two people in person which went well but in the end I did not get it due to someone else with more experience. I think my main complaint and reason for writing a review is that the recruiter scheduled time with me to let me know I did not get the job because someone else had more experience. As someone who does not like confrontation that much, it was very awkward to hear this news because initially he scheduled it for the very end of the day. All day I was waiting and curious what it was about- possibly thinking it was an offer. I think an email would have been fine. but that is just my preference.
