Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Emma (Lisbon, Lisbon)

Interview

I received an email for a precall. It went very well, the recruiter asked me about why I was applying for the position at Emma, why I think that I am a good fit for Emma and asked about professional experiences. After that I was selected for the Recruiting Friday. Basically, it was a 4 hour interview, with 5 people from several different departments. The first interview was with the Customer Support / Customer Service team leaders, they asked me about my challenges in my current positions, and kept asking me in a more deep way about the processes that I was used to do. The second interview was with the innovation department manager and the talent acquisition manager. They asked me to point 3 sentences that I would feel more comfortable with and three sentences that I would not feel comfortable with. They asked me to explain some of my choices. They kept asking me about my experiences in my current job, I've tried to give them detailed explanations, the talent acquisition manager said, in the middle of the interview, that my answers were too long. I felt that they were not interested at all in my answers. To be true, I felt a bit disrespected. After that, they throw a brain teaser about hourglass, but I was feeling so bad due to the fact that they were kind of rolling their eyes that I could not concetrate. I do appreciate feedbacks, but in the middle of the interview it is not the best time. The final interview was if the manager of the HR. He was really direct, seemed interested and it was a really nice experience with him, but I was feeling really bad due to the second interview. They sent me a "general" feedback saying they found a better suited candidate. After 4 hours of interview, I would love a better feedback from them. But well, it is what it is.

Interview Questions
  • With a 7-minute hourglass and an 11-minute hourglass, can you explain the quickest way to time a boiling egg for 15 minutes?

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Emma (Lisbon, Lisbon) in Nov 2021

Interview

The first stage is an online assessment with logical tests. The following step are two one-hour interviews with HR and team members, covering the CV and some brain teasers/case studies. A great lack of professionalism from the HR team, as they refused to give a reason or individual feedback. To make things worse, two emails were received: one rejecting the application and another with a proposal that was in fact sent by mistake. Very unhumane on the company's part, both not giving feedback/motivation and sending an offer by mistake.

Interview Questions
  • Q: Tell me about you Q: What is one characteristic of others that you don't have but you admire a lot

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Emma in Nov 2021

Interview

1.) Gespräch mit Manager 2.) mehrerer Gespräche mit jeweils 1xHR und 1xFührungskraft aus verschiedenen Teams: - Rolle - Motivation - Fragen zur Position im fiktiven Business Case - Brain Teaser (einfach googeln) Positiv: Die Interviewer waren sehr direkt und haben bis ins Detail nachgehakt, was zu einer spannenden Gesprächsatmosphäre geführt hat. Negativ: Ein Interviewer war regelmäßig offensichtlich mit seinem Handy beschäftigt, was ich als extrem respektlos wahrgenommen habe , scheinbar war ihm das Interview nicht sonderlich wichtig oder er fand meine Antworten nicht spannend genug. Er wirkte regelmäßig anwesend und der Gesprächsfluss wurde dadurch stark beeinflusst. Da er aus einem anderen Team war, ist dieses Verhalten nicht sonderlich fragwürdig, er wird wahrscheinlich wenig mit dem potentiellen Kandidaten zusammenarbeiten. Es ist ebenfalls fragwürdig, ob Mitglieder anderer Teams wirklich beurteilen können, ob ein Kandidat zu einer Rolle passt. Brain Teaser und Rechenaufgaben, sowie der Stärken- und Schwächenklassiker finde ich als äußerst überholt, erstere sind ganz einfach im Internet zu finden (nicht wirklich neu), für zweite haben wir alle im Alltag Excel zugänglich und dritte sind einfach nicht mehr spannend, weil jeder Bewerber auf diese Frage vorbereitet ist. Gerade Brain Teaser und Rechenaufgaben nehmen extrem viel Zeit vom Gespräch im Anspruch und lassen nicht wirklich einen Rückschluss auf den Fit eines Kandidatin zu, jeder, der gut vorbereitet ist, wird die Antworten dazu auch vorbereiten. Mir wurde bereits direkt nach den zwei Gesprächen ein kurzes Feedback gegeben und mitgeteilt, warum es an der Stelle nicht für mich weitergeht. Im Grunde wurden viele positive Punkte genannt und ein Punkt, der noch nicht ganz bei mir vorhanden ist - man fragt sich an der Stelle, was man noch im Job lernen soll, wenn man bereits alles schon kann? Das Feedback fand ich zwar nachvollziehbar, jedoch kam es mir sehr fragwürdig als ausreichende Begründung gegen mich als Kandidat vor. Womöglich war bei den anderen Gesprächen der perfekte Bewerber dabei.

Interview Questions
  • - Rolle - Motivation - Stärken und Schwächen - Wie würde deine Managerin dich beschreiben? - Auf was bist du stolz? - Hattest du schon einmal einen Konflikt im Beruf? Wie hast du ihn gelöst? - Fragen zur Position im fiktiven Business Case - Brain Teaser (einfach googeln) - Rechenaufgaben

Had a 2 hour interview. First hour with HR and second hour with Team Leader. Some hard questions but they made feel very comfortable. Latter I had a 30min interview as the final one. Even thought you apply to a specific role, they will try to put you in the team that best fits you.
