    Interview

    You could tell the dynamics and efficiency of Emma from the whole application process. I received the interview invitation after 2 days of my application, and I received the offer 5 days after the interview. Therefore the whole process took only about a week. Due to the COVID-19 situation, the interviews were taken online. I took two successive interviews respectively with the team manager and HR, and each of them lasted 1 hour. The whole interview was very pleasant.

    Marketing Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Emma in September 2020.

    Interview

    The first interview was with the HR manager. She was clearly not focused on the interview. She was barely looking at the screen, for many times she turned her microphone off and kept on talking and giggling with other people. The place where she was noise, like a hall, and not a conference room, which really bothered me.

    The second interview was with the manager of the position. We had a really good talk and he was very clear about the role.

    Data Scientist/Data Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Emma (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in September 2020.

    Interview

    I applied via Jobteaser, I was contacted shortly after my application. Then I had a video-interview with the manager of the team, who asked me about my previous experiences then gave me some brainteasers. Afterwards I participated in a recruitment day with other candidates: It started with a general presentation of the company, then an individual interview with one of the co-founders, it was more like a discussion about my passions (we talked about geopolitics and international politics, then about my travels). Then he gave me a brainteaser. The second interview was with two HRs who asked me personality questions and gave me a brain teaser. The last interview didn't take place but instead the first interviewer told me that there they decided not to move further as they want someone more independent and who thinks out of the box.

    Trainee Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Emma (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    Application, Test and 2 interviews

    The HR interview was the worst one because the HR Gabriel was not professional at all. She was not even listening to what I was saying. She just kept on looking at the phone. Plus she was not aware of which position I applied to and was shocked and surprised when I reminded her the position I applied to.
