    Interview

    Very long process with multiple rounds. Engaging people, not too hard questions. Different timezones so sometimes the interviews were at odd hours. Attention to how much you care about the concept of belonging.

    Social Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beijing, Beijing (China)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Airbnb (Beijing, Beijing (China)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    HR viewed my CV on LinkedIn and sent me a message. We scheduled a call on the following day and talked for 40 mins, going through my past experience as a digital marketer. Then I was interviewed by the hiring manager at their newly-decorated Beijing office for 45 mins 3 days after the phone screen. Both HR and hiring manager were friendly and easy-going. All questions were based on requirements on the JD, about creative thinking, content creation, past projects and cases. I chased HR for one week for feedback, which was negative. HR said my experience and skills met their standard but they didn't see there was a 'cultural fit' because they are looking for someone more passionate and target-driven and I failed to demonstrate those during the interview. It was a pity but sometimes you do need a bit of luck in job hunting. In addition, there would have been 4+ on-site interviews (incl. 2 group and 2 cultural) if I had passed the one with the hiring manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Airbnb.

    Interview

    Great phone call from HR manager and invited to hiring meet up.
    The hiring meet up was ok but could be better.. it was long and during the case study, we didn't really exchange with members of staff so we could share our opinions.
    Other problem, we were all supposed to have 3 chats but they didn't respect that.
