Depending on where you are in the process, we'll provide you with the reason for not moving forward in the rejection email.

If that's you, we'd be happy to set up a 15-minute call to give you some valuable feedback!
For those applying to business roles, we typically carry out reference checks. We understand that your current manager may not know about your job search, so we kindly ask for the contact information of two recent managers you've worked with. Don't worry, previous managers are perfectly fine too!
If you're having your first interview with GetYourGuide, take some time to learn about the company, including recent news, company culture, and the team you're hoping to join. We have plenty of articles on Inside GetYourGuide blog, and our LinkedIn page is a great place to get acquainted with our culture and various departments. For later-stage interviews, feel free to ask your interviewer if there's anything specific they'd like you to prepare. Don't forget to come up with a few questions about the role and our values and culture in advance. Good luck! 🚀
Recruiters typically inform you of all the steps during the first call, but sometimes things can change. For example, they might need to verify your work permit before proceeding or the person you're meeting next could be out of the office. To stay in the loop, always ask about the next steps at the end of each interview, no matter which stage you're at.
We recommend always asking the hiring manager or recruiter about the next steps, deadlines, and timelines at the end of each interview. We do our best to respond to candidates quickly, but keep in mind that every interviewer has their own working style. Asking these questions helps manage expectations and keeps you informed. 👌
During the face-to-face stage, candidates typically participate in multiple interviews at once. This might include a presentation about a past project, a stakeholder and team fit interview, and a recruiter wrap-up at the end. We usually aim to schedule these interviews back-to-back on the same day. However, sometimes it can be challenging, so interviews could be split between morning and afternoon or even spread across multiple days, depending on interviewers' and candidates' schedules. Rest assured, we'll send a confirmation email with all the details. If the proposed schedule doesn't work for you, please let us know, and we'll do our best to accommodate your needs.
If this is your first interview with GetYourGuide, do some research about the company, such as the latest news, the company culture, and the team you’re interviewing to join. We have a lot of articles on Inside GetYourGuide or check out the LinkedIn page to get familiar with the company culture and different departments. If you’re in the later stages, ask the interviewer if there’s anything specific they’d like you to prepare. Have some questions ready in advance related to the role you’re applying for, or about our values and culture.
Please always ask the hiring manager or the recruiter at the end of the interview. We try to get back to candidates as fast as possible but every interviewer is different and has different working styles. To manage expectations we always advise asking at the end of each interview about the next steps, deadlines, and timelines.
Please ask! Usually, recruiters will let you know on the first call all the steps involved, but things can change. Perhaps the recruiter has to check your work permit before moving to the next stage. Maybe the person you’re meeting next is out-of-office. Always ask at the end of the interview, regardless of which step you’re currently on.
Team fit interviews are a way for the candidate and team to meet each other. It's an important step for both parties to see if there's a cultural fit. The team will want to know more about you, your working style, and your preferences. You will also have the opportunity to get to know them, their working style and to ask questions.Stakeholder interviews are an opportunity for the candidate to meet with one of the stakeholders they’ll be working and collaborating with. Both parties can get to know each other, including how they like to work and collaborate. We advise coming up with examples of how you handled different situations in the past, and how you receive and give feedback. Doing some research specific to the role and industry you're applying for would also be helpful.
