    E-Commerce Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Frankfurt am Main (Germany)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Emma (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    It was a 4-hour interview:
    1. Company presentation

    2. 1-1 interview with a person from the department
    She asked questions like:
    - Brain twisting questions - which direction does the bus in the picture driving to?
    - Calculate 24*477 without using pen
    The person showed no respect to me (show no appreciation to my ideas, insist on her own idea without listening to me at ALL, and too proud to herself)

    3. Interview with one of the founder
    He is generally a nice person, also like to ask brain twisting questions.
    For me, the questions are quite unrelated to the position.

    4. Case study interview with a manager
    Question: How much revenue does the diaper industry generated annually in China?
    Need to calculate the sales per baby, then baby population in China (just assume that the population is equally distributed, although it is really not accurate)
    The manager is also quite friendly and showing respect.

    I do not like when I asked the HR about the process of the interview, he said I do not need to prepare for anything and even not willing to give me any interview schedule.
    I guess this is the culture of start-ups to ask people brain twisting questions that is not related to the position AT ALL!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Emma in May 2019.

    Interview

    Applied through Glassdoor, got called for an interview a couple of days later.
    The interview lasted over 2 hours and they did ask me so many personal questions about family and so on, and well, since it was an interview and I really wanted the job, I answered every question, even the ones I thought to be very intrusive. They made me few like I was going to get hired and kept bragging about how modern the company is and how different , transparent their hiring process was.

    In the end, all I got was an email saying the same automatic excuses as any other recruiters would do.
    For a company that brags being so modern and different from others, they could have at least given me a honest feedback on why they moved on without me. That is what a good company would have done.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Emma (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Eigentlich alles sehr nett und professionell.
    Was ich nicht verstehe: am Ende würde eine Beschäftigung in einer Art "Arbeitnehmer Legebatterie" stehen. Ein gräßliches, häßliches, fieses, riesiges Großraumbüro an einer vierspurigen Straße, wo man spätestens nach 1 Stunde total gestresst ist und nicht eine Minute Ruhe hat. Wie soll man so arbeiten? Wie soll man dort denken können? In einem Flügel telefonieren die Leute auch noch den ganzen Tag. Es gibt nur popelige mini Filz Schallschlucker. Ich empfinde sowas als Zumutung.
    Der Erfinder und die Betreiber von solchen Großraumbüros gehören verboten.
