    I have been working at Holiday Extras full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Holiday Extras helps you to become the best you can be, with lots of opportunities to progress within the call centre. It is a very positive company to work for with lots of fun events to involve everyone and you always feel supported and guided within your job role.

    Cons

    Full timers still work at least 1 day most weekends however we can work mobile so can work from home so this doesn't make this as bad

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Holiday Extras (Hythe, Kent, South East England, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The process was reasonably fast and the People Team kept in constant contact throughout the process and were easy to contact to answer any questions or queries.
    The first stage of the process, involves submitting a tech test. If succesful, you will be invited for a face to face interview with someone from The People Team and Web Team. Once again, if successful at this stage you will be invited back for a Pair Programming task where you will be accessed on more of a technical level.
