  1. Production Specialist Interview

    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EF Education First (United States)

    Interview

    Went through 4 great interviews, enjoyed speaking with the team from DC and Boston. After last interview, I received an auto-message that I did not receive the job. I asked for feedback or why but didn't hear back from anyone. Also had submitted a "practice" itinerary for free. After all that time and free work you'd expect some sort of follow up.
