    I worked at Holiday Extras full-time

    Pros

    Great career progression - if you're willing to work for it. I began in the Contact Center and worked my way up to the SEO team. I worked hard in order to move up, but I'd argue that's exactly how it should be. What's more I felt my hard work was rewarded.
    I always felt like I was trusted in my role, which makes a huge difference to work output. Your ideas are always listened to, and if possible, people give you that opportunity to make it happen.
    In addition, HX genuinely cares about it's employees - both in their working and personal lives.
    I really miss HX and really enjoyed my time with the company.

    Cons

    Having started in the Contact Center, I know how tough that area of the business can be in comparison to the rest of the business due to the nature of the work however I do think that they are treated far better than other people in the same line of work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - keep pushing the values, maintain the culture as best you can and keep looking for ways to treat your staff because happy staff definitely makes for a successful company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Holiday Extras (Folkstone, NC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The day started with an assessment as a group, which lasted until early afternoon. After if you got through the process you were asked to stay for the interview. Very professional throughout.
