    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Vend.

    Interview

    Absolutely delightful. A friendly and approachable team who checked in in a timely fashion (all too rare these days). They go to great lengths to keep in touch throughout and ask meaningful and important questions. Seriously an amazing HR and on-boarding team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Vend.

    Interview

    Vend were looking for an account Executive for the UK market and for some reason the recruiter contacted me via LinkedIn and asked for a Skype chat, even though it was mentioned on my LinkedIn that my English isn't fluent. I thought that they are expanding to other countries and my fluency in other languages would be helpful, so I approved the appointment, but as it turned out, they don't. In the end of our Skype conversation recruiter told me that someone will contact me in a few days to arrange an interview in their UK office, but 2 weeks have already passed and noone did... I don't understand why their recruiter have contacted me in the first place if my info on LinkedIn were already showing that I'm not a right person for this position and why telling me that I'm going to have an appointment in the office soon... The recruiter just waisted mine and his time...

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne (Australia)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vend (Melbourne (Australia)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Dealt with a recruiter then Vend staff in a 2nd interview.
    Recruiter was great and laid out the options for me and what Vend was looking for (internal recruiter) laid back didnt need to where a dress shirt. Put me in front of the decision makers who were great to deal with.

    Graduate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Vend (Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)) in May 2019.

    Interview

    The graduate day in itself was fine, three different interviews taking approx 20mins each. One behavioral, one technical and one personal. However, the process after the interview was subpar as they took ages to get back to us when it was said that they would get back to us sooner.

    Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Vend (Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Dodged a BULLET!!! The first meet and greet was lovely, got to meet the team and Finance person that this role is interviewing for. HR will be the saving grace for this company - very genuine. Coffee & water was offered to me. The office makes you relax and enjoy the time during interview with dogs running around. The third round was to meet the CEO and cover a case study, the brief was very generic and thought it allowed you to showcase your approach. 40 mins into the panel discussion it was clear that the CEO lacks any people skills - no empathy or respect and also lacks the skill to ask the right questions and understand others potential skills (looks like he has a high school view of the world and was a boys club). It was obvious with all the recent Senior Management exits from Vend that there is a pattern on the real reason why they are departing. If I was an investor, I probably would hold back on any further funding (the controls do not exist and are very loose).

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Vend (Melbourne (Australia)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Talk about rude and arrogant! If you want to attract good people how about using someone who doesn't have a chip on his shoulder to do the phone interviews! You're aim as a Talent Manager is to identify people, not belittle them and make them feel like idiots! How about being a little more professional and genuinely interested in finding out about someone's background to qualify them...just some friendly advice.
    Based on my conversation, if I were offered to go to next round, I'd say thanks but no thanks!

    Product Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Vend in April 2019.

    Interview

    Recruiter did not show up for the first call.

    I was then given a design challenge to complete directly.
    The challenge is related to their product, strangely.

    Design challenge sent to recruiter, she said she'd be in touch in a week.
    Another recruiter reached out to me after a week, wanting to schedule a call.

    Did not hear back since then.

    Emailed the first recruiter.
    Was told the 2nd recruiter has been emailing me but didn't hear back from me, so have filled this position.
    She also said the 2nd recruiter is going to re-forward the emails she sent.

    Never got the re-forwarded emails.
    Checked my junk folder, nothing.

    Followed up on that, did not hear back since then.
    Never got feedback on my assignment.

    Please, respect other people time.

    Customer Service Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vend (London, England (UK)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    I had a call with a hr person about my skills and experience. I was invited to a interview in person which I got through to the second interview stage where i had to complete a excercise task in regards to how i would answer queries.

    After completing the task they said they would get back to me which they didn’t and I had to follow up to see. No response for the hr and completely left in the dark. I find it very disrespectful that they could not have the decency to thank their candidate for their time and let them know the outcome regardless if they got the job or not. It’s such a fake culture and unprofessional
