I have been working at King Kong full-time (Less than a year)
Training and Development program is excellent
Emphasis on constant up-skilling of employees
Fantastic on-boarding process
Friendly and welcoming coworkers
Career progression opportunities
Amazing benefits and perks (think cake, massage therapists, monthly team activities)
No downsides I can think of :)
The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at King Kong (Sydney) in January 2018.
After sending through cover letter, CV, and expected salary remuneration you get through to a 30 Minutes qualifier phone interview which also asks what Your desired income is, followed by an in house interview with both the HR Manager and the Senior SEM manager after a successful completion of an AdWords 90 minute practice test.
Then after both the HR manager and the head of department are satisfied you have the skills, have passed a practice exam and made clear the remuneration you are after, you wait for a call to find you will sit another interview with CEO who basically makes his mind up on his own observations in a 20 min chat and declines you based on not being able to meet the salary requirement you have made clear from the first application, and that you don’t have the skills that his Leadership and Management team meticulously made sure you did.
Total waste of my time.
Entire process from submission to finally declined... 8 weeks
