I worked at EF Education First full-time for more than 3 years


EF is made up of amazing people, a culture that is bursting with fun and amazing opportunities both professionally as well as travel opportunities.


If you're looking to be a millionaire this probably isn't the place to work. If you're looking to make money and enjoy your quality of life then this is a great fit.

    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at EF Education First (Melbourne) in Feb 2016


    The interviewer asked a lot of questions very quickly and asked for the first word that came to my head. After that they asked further questions about some of the answers I gave. In the next section they asked me to provide examples of certain behaviours.

    Can you tell me about a time you had to deal with conflict with a customer?
