    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.

    Interview Questions

    • A loooooot of questions about personal experiences and two brain teasers - GMAT kind of questions   Answer Question
    • If X gives one apple to Y, they will both have the same number of apples

    Interview

    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.

    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

    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.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Frankfurt am Main (Germany)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I had to complete 1 online test (around 45mn) and then I received an email telling me for which position I will get an interview. The first step was a 30mn interview with HR and then I was invited to the "Recruiting Friday" which is 3 different interviews (1 with the marketing director then 1 with the HR Manager and the last one with the country manager + CEO).
    I need to say that this was the worst interview I have ever had in my life. The first ones were ok, people were still nice. The last part with the CEO was horrible, I thought I would talk to somebody who is passionate and with whom I could exchange ideas but not at all. I didn't even have the chance to introduce myself in the beginning because "we know who you are we saw your resume". He played with me, tried to push me to a mental breakdown, didn't even want to hear my ideas for his company because apparently he and his colleagues found "better solution in less than 2 minutes" that what I would say. I am extremely disappointed with this last interview, this harmed a lot the brand image, I would not recommend EMMA to anybody who would ask for my opinion. Just keep in mind that the people you are interviewing are also your customers.
