    Program Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lyon (France)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Grand Circle Travel (Lyon (France)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Entretien collectif, (15 ou 20 personnes) on vous demande de vous présenter en 1 minute, on vous passe une boîte avec des question du genre: que feriez-vous si vous gagnez à la loterie? que pensez-vous de la pornographie? Pourriez-vous vivre sur une autre planète? on vous dis que vous allez devoir construire un radeau avec des pailles ( 15 ou 12 pailles) pour protéger un oeuf d'une chute de 3 mètres. On vous dira qu'on vas vous donner 50 pailles mais au final vous n'en recevrez que 15 pour voir comment vous allez réagir, vous avez 15 minutes pour faire l'exercice en équipe ( un conseil mettez un chronomètre) on vous donnera une question avec des mises en situations du genre: si un bus tombe en passe et il pleut dehors comment allez-vous annoncer au passagers qu'ils doivent sortir du bus? Un passager n'a pas sa valise comment le rassurer? à la fin de la journée on vous dira si vous êtes pris ou pas pour le deuxième jour. Le deuxième jour on vous demandera de faire une présentation de vous devant le groupe d'une durée de 4 minutes environ ( un conseil lâchez vous totalement c'est ce qu'ils recherchent) et on vous dira de faire un tour de Lyon en 10 minutes, pas de connaissances historique mais simplement en vous aidant de ce qui vous entoure. Il y a 3 ou 4 recruteurs dans chaque session. Le salaire qui propose est de 161€ par jour pour 11 jours de croisière et vous n'avez pas de contrat vous êtes auto entrepreneurs, les tips ou pourboire sont en plus du salaire mais très aléatoire. Si vous recherché vraiment un entretien qui sort de l'ordinaire allez-y et amusez-vous mais je ne pense vraiment pas que le jeu en vaille vraiment la chandelle car en lisant très attentivement les commentaires des passagers ainsi que des employés de Grand Circle Travel on s'aperçoit qu'il y a un turn over très important et que les conditions de travail sont très précaire! Avis aux amateurs et bonne chance!

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Grand Circle Travel in September 2018.

    Interview

    They went over your resume and asked very specific questions that made you felt very uncomfortable provided that it is only an entry level position. At the end of the call, they lost interest in me and ended the call without letting me know when I will hear back.
