    Planner Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Emma (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Went through two rounds of interviews. The interview with HR was pretty straightforward. The person was quite professional.

    In the second round of interview, the interviewer asked a number of usual questions. I can't help but notice that the interviewer's attention is somewhere else and is acting quite impatiently.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Emma.

    Interview

    1: Application with CV via Emmas job portal
    - very basic and usual process
    2: Initial 20-30 minutes call with HR
    - took place very shortly after initial application (3-4 days)
    - very laid back and friendly talk, cultural fit questions and a bit of expectation management towards both sides (what does Emma expect from you and what can you expect from them)
    - small brainteaser
    3: Online general ability test (logic reasoning, verbal reasoning etc.)
    - 4-5 days after the initial call
    - 30-45 minutes test that checks mathematical, logical and verbal abilities
    4: Interview day
    - 1 - 1,5 weeks after the test
    - short introduction of the company
    - afterwards 3 interviews that each took about one hour
    - includes brainteasers, short cases and cultural fit questions

    overall:
    - quick process with very good communication along the way
    - focus not only on ability and intelligence of the applicant but also strongly on cultural fit
    - collaborative rather than "intimidating" or "threatening" atmosphere in the whole process and all the interviews

    Business Development Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Emma.

    Interview

    I applied and received the invitation for the interview few days later.
    The process is:
    - 1 interview with manager of the position
    - 1 interview with HR

    The mood was very nice and the overall process was smooth

    The only thing I didn't like was not to get a feedback on why was I not taken. I did explicitly ask. In my opinion the interview went very well, so it is very unpleasant not to know why it didn't work out.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Emma (Frankfurt (Oder) (Germany)) in October 2020.

    I have attended 2 meetings. One with the country managers and one with the people and organization recruiter. Both involved description of past experiences with concrete examples and case studies. It was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience. What I liked the most is that the recruiters made me feel comfortable and I didn`t feel time pressure to answer to the questions

    The interviewer acts very impatient and seems like want to finish the interview asap from the start. Ask you some questions that are very harsh and give very careless reaction to your answers. Terrible experience, somekind rude interviewer.
