    I have been working at marcus evans full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The most important thing for me from a very young age has been professional development and marcus evans is a company that invests in its employees professional development which should be important to all employees. Working in an environment such as this one, you work around people with creative minds who constantly share ideas and at marcus evans we are actually able to develop our ideas and one day even implement them.

    Cons

    I cannot think of anything I see as a con. The pressure of the job perhaps? But that's what makes it exciting so I wouldn't even count that as a con.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at marcus evans (Nicosia (Cyprus)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, had a phone screening 2 weeks later, the lady that interviewed me on the phone was very pleasant and friendly. She asked basic questions about me [past work experience, expected salary etc.]. Then we scheduled a face to face interview.

    I had 4 one to one interviews in total. I met the manager and the woman that interviewed me on the phone at my first interview. They explained what the role was, what they were expecting from me and how the company works. From my understanding they needed a person that can work under pressure, is very well organised and is quick in picking up new skills. I was offered a second interview 1 week later.

    I was assigned a small project by the manager and had a 5 day deadline to submit. The third interview was to evaluate my project and i had to present my results to the manager. She then explained the salary structure and commissions that my position could offer.

    The forth and last interview was again only with the manager. She handed over a multiple choice test for me to fill in in 40 mins. We went through the answers together and then i was offered the position. I accepted the offer and signed the contracts a few days later.
